A Python RAML parser

Project description

ramlfications: RAML reference implementation in Python

Latest Version Development Status License Current coverage Supported Python versions

Note: this project has been discontinued at Spotify and will be transferred to a new maintainer, we are currently finishing the transfer of this repository and the associated pypi package.

Requirements and Installation

User Setup

The latest stable version can be found on PyPI, and you can install via pip:

$ pip install ramlfications

ramlfications runs on Python 3.10+, and PyPy. Linux , OS X and Windows are supported. Currently, only RAML 0.8 is supported, but there are plans to support 1.0.

Continue onto usage to get started on using ramlfications.

Developer Setup

If you’d like to contribute or develop upon ramlfications, be sure to read How to Contribute first.

You can see the progress of ramlfications on our public project management page.

System requirements:

  • C Compiler (gcc/clang/etc.)

  • If on Linux - you’ll need to install Python headers (e.g. apt-get install python-dev)

  • Python 3.10+, or PyPy

  • virtualenv

Here’s how to set your machine up:

$ git clone
$ cd ramlfications
$ virtualenv env
$ source env/bin/activate
(env) $ pip install -r dev-requirements.txt

Run Tests

If you’d like to run tests for all supported Python versions, you must have all Python versions installed on your system. I suggest pyenv to help with that.

To run all tests:

(env) $ tox

To run a specific test setup (options include: py310, py311, py312, pypy, flake8, verbose, manifest, docs, setup, setupcov):

(env) $ tox -e py310

To run tests without tox:

(env) $ py.test
(env) $ py.test --cov ramlfications --cov-report term-missing

Build Docs

Documentation is build with Sphinx, written in rST, uses the Read the Docs theme with a slightly customized CSS, and is hosted on Read the Docs site.

To rebuild docs locally, within the parent ramlfications directory:

(env) $ tox -e docs


(env) $ sphinx-build -b docs/ docs/_build

Then within ramlfications/docs/_build you can open the index.html page in your browser.

Project History

Ramlfications was originally created by Spotify engineer, but is currently not in use at Spotify. The project was discontinued in April 2022 and transferred to an external maintainer.

Still have issues?

Feel free to drop by #ramlfications on Freenode (webchat) or ping via Twitter[X]. “jdiegodcp” is the maintainer, a.k.a jdiegodcp on GitHub.


0.1.9 (2015-12-24)

Happy holidays!

  • Fix resource type inheritance (Issue 23 & Issue 47)

  • Preserve order of baseUriParameters and uriParameters in API root and resource nodes (Issue 37)

  • Fix missing URI parameters if not defined/declared inline (Issue 56)

  • Fix how arguments are passed into pytest in (PR 55 - thank you matiasb!)

0.1.8 (2015-10-07)

  • Fix incorrect/incomplete behavior optional properties of Resource Types (Issue 44).

  • Fix protocols inheritance (Issue 44).

  • Partial fix for Issue 23 - incorrect resource type inheritance

    • When a resource type is defined with one method that is optional and is applied to a resource that does not have that method defined, the resource’s method should not inherit from the optional method

    • When a resource inherits a resource type but explicitly defines named parameters, the named parameters in the resource should overwrite those that are inherited
