Chef auth support for Python-Requests

import requests
import requests_chef

auth = requests_chef.ChefAuth('chef-user', '~/chef-user.pem')
response = requests.get('',
                        headers={'X-Chef-Version': '12.0.2'},
{'display_name': 'chef-user',
 'email': '',
 'first_name': 'Chef',
 'last_name': 'User',
 'middle_name': '',
 'public_key': '-----BEGIN PUBLIC KEY-----\nMIIBIj...IDAQAB\n-----END PUBLIC KEY-----\n',
 'username': 'chef-user'}

See samstav/okchef first, since thats generally more useful. okchef uses requests-chef to sign and authenticate requests.


This project currently requires a fork of pyca/cryptography due to the following related issues:


First, install this fork of cryptography directly from github.

$ pip install git+

If you don’t do this first, you’d have to use the (deprecated, scheduled for removal) --process-dependency-links option through pip, since pip no longer respects dependency links by default (as of pip 1.5).

$ pip install --process-dependency-links requests-chef
