Project Description

RestMapper takes the pain out of integrating with RESTful APIs. It removes all of the complexity with writing API-specific code, and lets you focus all your energy on the important stuff. Here’s a quick example (using Twitter):

>>> Twitter = RestMapper("https://api.twitter.com/1.1/{path}.json")
>>> auth = OAuth1('YOUR_APP_KEY', 'YOUR_APP_SECRET', 'USER_OAUTH_TOKEN', 'USER_OAUTH_TOKEN_SECRET')
>>> twitter = Twitter(auth=auth)
>>> response = twitter.statuses.mentions_timeline()

Whoa, easy, right? This will call https://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/mentions_timeline.json, authenticate the request using OAuth1, and return the response as JSON. The great thing is that there’s not much else you need to learn to integrate with any other API. You just plug in the base URL format, provide any optional authentication handlers (that requests provides), and then just start making API calls.

See requests-cloudkit for an example of an authentication handler working with Apple’s CloudKit which is compatible right out of the box with RestMapper.

Installation

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

pip install restmapper

Usage

The first thing you need to do is generate a base RestMapper object that will allow you to instantiate a connection with a remote API.

>>> Twitter = RestMapper("https://api.twitter.com/1.1/{path}.json")

{path} is just a placeholder for the rest of the path. You’ll specify this later when making API calls.

Twitter’s API is protected by OAuth1, so the next step is to provide authentication. When integrating with any other API, any requests-compatible auth object can be provided.

>>> from requests_oauthlib import OAuth1
>>> auth = OAuth1('YOUR_APP_KEY', 'YOUR_APP_SECRET', 'USER_OAUTH_TOKEN', 'USER_OAUTH_TOKEN_SECRET')
>>> twitter = Twitter(auth=auth)

Now you can start making calls. The API object’s attributes and properties map one-to-one with the API you’re integrating with. E.g., the below:

>>> response = twitter.statuses.mentions_timeline()

…will request https://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/mentions_timeline.json. The path implied by the attribute syntax is inserted right where the path placeholder is in the Twitter object’s instantiation earlier.

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.

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

PATCH, PUT, GET, and POST are all supported. GET is currently the default.

Miscellaneous

By default, python-restmapper will return parsed JSON objects. If you’d like the raw response object for a request, just pass in parse_response=False as an argument to the API object.
