A Python wrapper for restmapper

Project description


python-restmapper is a tool that makes writing RESTful API clients a breeze. It removes all of the complexity with writing API-specific code, and lets you focus all your energy on the important stuff. Restmapper will even parse JSON and XML objects and display them nicely, based on a declarative format you provide for each API you integrate with.


python-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

No dependencies (besides Python 2.7).


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

>>> from requests_oauthlib import OAuth1
>>> Twitter = RestMapper("", url_transformer=lambda url: url + ".json")

Now, just get an access key and secret, and then start making calls with the API object.

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


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.

>>> response = ...
... your org ...
