A library that makes consuming a ReST API easier and more convenient

Project description


Slumber is a python library that provides a convenient yet powerful object orientated interface to ReSTful APIs. It acts as a wrapper around the excellent httplib2 library and abstracts away the handling of urls, serialization, and processing requests.

Getting Help

There are two primary ways of getting help. We have a mailing list hosted at Google ( and an IRC channel (#slumber on to get help, want to bounce idea or generally shoot the breeze.


  1. Install Slumber:

    $ pip install slumber
  2. Install Optional Requirements:

    pip install simplejson pyyaml
  3. Use Slumber!


Slumber requires the following modules. If you use Pip, you can install the necessary bits via the included requirements.txt:

  • Python 2.5+

  • httplib2

  • simplejson (If using Python 2.5, or you desire the speedups for JSON serialization)

  • pyyaml (If you are using the optional yaml serialization)



  • Fixed Including of Changelog.rst


  • Updated the docs to include a section about url parameters


  • (Backwards Incompatible) Move specifying a non default serializer from api.resource.get(format="yaml") to api.resource(format="yaml").get()

  • Reworked the internal Resource api to not clobber any kwargs passed to it. This fixes a bug where you couldn’t use format or url as the name for one of the url parameters.


  • Fix for not passing kwargs to Resource.get()


  • Initial public release of Slumber
