Move your app forward with the Uber API

Project description

Getting started

Move your app forward with the Uber API

How to Build

You must have Python 2 >=2.7.9 or Python 3 >=3.4 installed on your system to install and run this SDK. This SDK package depends on other Python packages like nose, jsonpickle etc. These dependencies are defined in the requirements.txt file that comes with the SDK. To resolve these dependencies, you can use the PIP Dependency manager. Install it by following steps at https://pip.pypa.io/en/stable/installing/.

Python and PIP executables should be defined in your PATH. Open command prompt and type pip --version. This should display the version of the PIP Dependency Manager installed if your installation was successful and the paths are properly defined.

  • Using command line, navigate to the directory containing the generated files (including requirements.txt) for the SDK.
  • Run the command pip install -r requirements.txt. This should install all the required dependencies.

Building SDK - Step 1

How to Use

The following section explains how to use the Somerandom SDK package in a new project.

1. Open Project in an IDE

Open up a Python IDE like PyCharm. The basic workflow presented here is also applicable if you prefer using a different editor or IDE.

Open project in PyCharm - Step 1

Click on Open in PyCharm to browse to your generated SDK directory and then click OK.

Open project in PyCharm - Step 2

The project files will be displayed in the side bar as follows:

Open project in PyCharm - Step 3

2. Add a new Test Project

Create a new directory by right clicking on the solution name as shown below:

Add a new project in PyCharm - Step 1

Name the directory as "test"

Add a new project in PyCharm - Step 2

Add a python file to this project with the name "testsdk"

Add a new project in PyCharm - Step 3

Name it "testsdk"

Add a new project in PyCharm - Step 4

In your python file you will be required to import the generated python library using the following code lines

from somerandom.somerandom_client import SomerandomClient

Add a new project in PyCharm - Step 4

After this you can write code to instantiate an API client object, get a controller object and make API calls. Sample code is given in the subsequent sections.

3. Run the Test Project

To run the file within your test project, right click on your Python file inside your Test project and click on Run

Run Test Project - Step 1

How to Test

You can test the generated SDK and the server with automatically generated test cases. unittest is used as the testing framework and nose is used as the test runner. You can run the tests as follows:

  1. From terminal/cmd navigate to the root directory of the SDK.
  2. Invoke pip install -r test-requirements.txt
  3. Invoke nosetests

Initialization

Authentication

In order to setup authentication and initialization of the API client, you need the following information.

Parameter Description
server_token TODO: add a description

API client can be initialized as following.

# Configuration parameters and credentials
server_token = 'server_token'

client = SomerandomClient(server_token)

Class Reference

List of Controllers

Class: ProductsController

Get controller instance

An instance of the ProductsController class can be accessed from the API Client.

 products_controller = client.products

Method: get_products_get

The Products endpoint returns information about the Uber products offered at a given location. The response includes the display name and other details about each product, and lists the products in the proper display order.

def get_products_get(self,
                         latitude,
                         longitude)

Parameters

Parameter Tags Description
latitude Required Latitude component of location.
longitude Required Longitude component of location.

Example Usage

latitude = 52.9965383387155
longitude = 52.9965383387155

result = products_controller.get_products_get(latitude, longitude)

Errors

Error Code Error Description
0 Unexpected error

Back to List of Controllers

Class: EstimatesController

Get controller instance

An instance of the EstimatesController class can be accessed from the API Client.

 estimates_controller = client.estimates

Method: get_estimates_time_get

The Time Estimates endpoint returns ETAs for all products offered at a given location, with the responses expressed as integers in seconds. We recommend that this endpoint be called every minute to provide the most accurate, up-to-date ETAs.

def get_estimates_time_get(self,
                               start_latitude,
                               start_longitude,
                               customer_uuid=None,
                               product_id=None)

Parameters

Parameter Tags Description
startLatitude Required Latitude component of start location.
startLongitude Required Longitude component of start location.
customerUuid Optional Unique customer identifier to be used for experience customization.
productId Optional Unique identifier representing a specific product for a given latitude & longitude.

Example Usage

start_latitude = 52.9965383387155
start_longitude = 52.9965383387155
customer_uuid = uuid.uuid4()
product_id = 'product_id'

result = estimates_controller.get_estimates_time_get(start_latitude, start_longitude, customer_uuid, product_id)

Errors

Error Code Error Description
0 Unexpected error

Method: get_estimates_price_get

The Price Estimates endpoint returns an estimated price range for each product offered at a given location. The price estimate is provided as a formatted string with the full price range and the localized currency symbol.

The response also includes low and high estimates, and the ISO 4217 currency code for situations requiring currency conversion. When surge is active for a particular product, its surge_multiplier will be greater than 1, but the price estimate already factors in this multiplier.

def get_estimates_price_get(self,
                                start_latitude,
                                start_longitude,
                                end_latitude,
                                end_longitude)

Parameters

Parameter Tags Description
startLatitude Required Latitude component of start location.
startLongitude Required Longitude component of start location.
endLatitude Required Latitude component of end location.
endLongitude Required Longitude component of end location.

Example Usage

start_latitude = 52.9965383387155
start_longitude = 52.9965383387155
end_latitude = 52.9965383387155
end_longitude = 52.9965383387155

result = estimates_controller.get_estimates_price_get(start_latitude, start_longitude, end_latitude, end_longitude)

Back to List of Controllers

Class: UserController

Get controller instance

An instance of the UserController class can be accessed from the API Client.

 user_controller = client.user

Method: get_me_get

The User Profile endpoint returns information about the Uber user that has authorized with the application.

def get_me_get(self)

Example Usage

result = user_controller.get_me_get()

Errors

Error Code Error Description
0 Unexpected error

Method: get_history_get

The User Activity endpoint returns data about a user's lifetime activity with Uber. The response will include pickup locations and times, dropoff locations and times, the distance of past requests, and information about which products were requested.

The history array in the response will have a maximum length based on the limit parameter. The response value count may exceed limit, therefore subsequent API requests may be necessary.

def get_history_get(self,
                        offset=None,
                        limit=None)
