PyPI Version License

A generator for iterating over paginated API responses

Installation

pip install requests-paginator

Usage

Instantiate RequestsPaginator with:

  • A URL to page 1 of the API output
  • A function (or lambda) get_nextpage(page) which describes how to get the next page:

Examples:

from requests_paginator import RequestsPaginator

BASE = 'https://galaxy.ansible.com'

def get_next_page(page):
    body = page.json()
    if body['next_link']:
        return BASE +  body['next_link']
    return None

# instantiate the paginator
pages = RequestsPaginator(
    BASE + '/api/v1/categories/?page=1',
    get_next_page
)

# iterate over the pages
for page in pages:
    print("calling %s" % (page.url))
    page.raise_for_status()
    print("found %s results" % (len(page.json()['results'])))
from requests_paginator import RequestsPaginator

def get_next_page(page):
    links = {}
    if "Link" in page.headers:
        linkHeaders = page.headers["Link"].split(", ")
        for linkHeader in linkHeaders:
            (url, rel) = linkHeader.split("; ")
            url = url[1:-1]
            rel = rel[5:-1]
            if rel == 'next':
                return url
    return None

# instantiate the paginator
pages = RequestsPaginator(
    'https://api.github.com/users/github/repos?page=1',
    get_next_page
)

# iterate over the pages
for page in pages:
    print("calling %s" % (page.url))
    page.raise_for_status()
    print("found %s results" % (len(page.json())))
