Apple CloudKit server-to-server support for the requests Python library.

Project Description

This project provides an authentication handler for Apple’s CloudKit server-to-server API for the requests Python library.

Installation

requests-cloudkit is available for download through the Python Package Index (PyPi). You can install it right away using pip or easy_install.

pip install requests-cloudkit

Usage

requests-cloudkit provides an authentication handler that can be passed directly to the requests library to authenticate requests to the CloudKit API. Before working with the CloudKit server-to-server API, you’ll first need to follow Apple’s instructions to generate a certificate and a server-to-server key (see Accessing CloudKit Using a Server-to-Server Key).

Once you have these values, just plug them into a CloudKitAuth object, which you can use with requests to interface with CloudKit. E.g.:

>>> import requests
>>> from requests_cloudkit import CloudKitAuth
>>> auth = CloudKitAuth(key_id=YOUR_KEY_ID, key_file_name=YOUR_PRIVATE_KEY_PATH)
>>> requests.get("https://api.apple-cloudkit.com/database/[version]/[container]/[environment]/public/zones/list", auth=auth)

Usage Requests-CloudKit with RestMapper

requests-cloudkit can also be used with RestMapper to integrate directly with the CloudKit API.

>>> CloudKit = restmapper.RestMapper("https://api.apple-cloudkit.com/database/[version]/[container]/[environment]/")

Instantiate a cloudkit instance using your CloudKit server-to-server key ID and provide the path to the private key file.

>>> cloudkit = CloudKit(auth=CloudKitAuth(key_id=YOUR_KEY_ID, key_file_name=YOUR_KEY_FILE))

Now, you can start making requests to the CloudKit API using a nice attribute syntax.

>>> response = cloudkit.public.zones.list()

The above will hit https://api.apple-cloudkit.com/database/[version]/[container]/[environment]/public/zones/list.

If you want to pass in body data for a POST, provide a single argument to the call to the API, and specify “POST” as the first attribute. I.e.

>>> cloudkit.POST.my.request(data)

For the full list of CloudKit Server-to-Server API capabilities, reference Apple’s developer documentation.
