Python API wrapper for Rocket.Chat

Codacy Badge Build Status codecov PyPI Say Thanks!

Installation

  • From pypi: pip3 install rocketchat_API
  • From GitHub: Clone our repository and python3 setup.py install

Requirements

Usage

from pprint import pprint
from rocketchat_API.rocketchat import RocketChat

proxy_dict = {
    "http"  : "http://127.0.0.1:3128",
    "https" : "https://127.0.0.1:3128",
}

rocket = RocketChat('user', 'pass', server_url='https://demo.rocket.chat', proxies=proxy_dict)
pprint(rocket.me().json())
pprint(rocket.channels_list().json())
pprint(rocket.chat_post_message('good news everyone!', channel='GENERAL', alias='Farnsworth').json())
pprint(rocket.channels_history('GENERAL', count=5).json())

note: every method returns a requests Response object.

Connection pooling

If you are going to make a couple of request, you can user connection pooling provided by requests. This will save significant time by avoiding re-negotiation of TLS (SSL) with the chat server on each call.

from requests import sessions
from pprint import pprint
from rocketchat_API.rocketchat import RocketChat

with sessions.Session() as session:
    rocket = RocketChat('user', 'pass', server_url='https://demo.rocket.chat', session=session)
    pprint(rocket.me().json())
    pprint(rocket.channels_list().json())
    pprint(rocket.chat_post_message('good news everyone!', channel='GENERAL', alias='Farnsworth').json())
    pprint(rocket.channels_history('GENERAL', count=5).json())

Method parameters

Only required parameters are explicit on the RocketChat class but you can still use all other parameters. For a detailed parameters list check the Rocket chat API

API coverage

Most of the API methods are already implemented. If you are interested in a specific call just open an issue or open a pull request.

Tests

We are actively testing :)

Tests run on a Rocket.Chat Docker container so install Docker and docker-compose. To start test server do docker-compose -f docker-compose-test-server.yml up and to take test server down docker-compose -f docker-compose-test-server.yml down

Contributing

You can contribute by doing Pull Requests. (It may take a while to merge your code but if it's good it will be merged). Please, try to implement tests for all your code and use a PEP8 compliant code style.

Reporting bugs and asking for features is also contributing ;) Feel free to help us grow by registering issues.

We hang out here if you want to talk.
