An MAuth client based around the excellent requests library.

Project Description
# requests-mauth

requests-mauth is a python requests ( Authentication implementation
for Medidata's _MAuth_ authentication system.

## Pre-requisites ##

To use MAuth authentication you will need:

* An MAuth APP ID
* An MAuth private key (with the public key registered with Medidata's MAuth server)

## Using ##

import requests
from requests_mauth import MAuth

APP_UUID = '55dc88ec-c109-11e1-84f6-1231381b7d70'
private_key = open("private.key","r").read()

mauth = MAuth(APP_UUID, private_key)

# Call an MAuth protected resource, in this case an iMedidata API
# listing the studies for a particular user
user_uuid = '10ac3b0e-9fe2-11df-a531-12313900d531'
url = "" % user_uuid

# Make the requests call, passing the auth client
result = requests.get(url, auth=mauth)

# Print results
if result.status_code == 200:
print([r['uuid'] for r in result.json()['studies']])

We use [travis]( for automated CI of the code (and status checks are required to pass prior to PR merges being accepted).
We use travis to deploy updated versions to PyPI (only from `master`)

For local development (cross version) we use [tox]( with [pyenv]( to automate the running of unittests against different python versions in virtualised python environments.

To setup your environment:
1. Install Python
1. Install Pyenv
$ brew update
$ brew install pyenv
1. Install Pyenv versions for the Tox Suite
$ pyenv install 2.7.13 3.3.6 3.4.6 3.5.3 3.6.1
1. Install Tox
$ pip install tox tox-pyenv
1. Setup the local project versions (one for each env in the `envlist`)
$ pyenv local 2.7.13 3.3.6 3.4.6 3.5.3 3.6.1
1. Make any changes, update the tests and then run tests with `tox`

1. Coverage report can be viewed using `open htmlcov/index.html`
1. Push your changes and create a PR to `master`
1. Once the PR is complete, tag the branch and push it to github, this will trigger Travis to deploy to PyPI (make sure the version is consistent)
$ git checkout master
$ git pull
$ git tag -a 1.0.2 -m "Requests MAuth 1.0.2"
$ git push --tags
