helpful api endpoints for smug

Project description


a few smug api endpoints that may be useful


The fastest way to get started is to use the docker image.

docker pull threatsimple/smugapi:latest
export SMUG_WEATHERBIT_KEY=YourWeatherKey
docker run -p 8088 \

The other option is to use the package in

pip3 install smugapi
export SMUG_WEATHERBIT_KEY=YourWeatherKey
smugapi run

Either way, you'll have the api running and listening on localhost, port 8088.

running the service

There is a command line tool, smugapi that allows for easy starting of the api service.

smugapi run

This will run the web service and bind to localhost.

This doesn't get you anything useful, though. You'll want to pass api keys via either the cmd line or environment variables, as discussed in the endpoints section below.

export SMUG_WEATHERBIT_KEY=<Your API Key Here>
smugapi run

All development related tasks are managed via the Makefile.

dev environment

make dev

This creates a python virtualenv in pyvenv and installs the required libs, as referenced in reqs.pip.

This also sets up the current source directory as the smugapi module in the venv for ease of development.


make test

Assuming you've run make dev, you can use make test to run tests. This will handle the executing the tests in the virtualenv for you, so no need to handle that in your shell.
