Python client library for VinylDNS

This project is a work in progress! If you would like to help us get this where it needs to be, please reach out to us in gitter.

To run, pip install vinyldns-python and then:

>>> from vinyldns.client import VinylDNSClient
>>> local_client = VinylDNSClient("ApiEndpoint", "UserAccessKey", "UserSecretKey")
>>> local_client.list_zones()
>>>
>>> # If all of the following environments are set
>>> # - VINYLDNS_API_URL
>>> # - VINYLDNS_ACCESS_KEY_ID
>>> # - VINYLDNS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY
>>> from vinyldns.client import VinylDNSClient
>>> local_client = VinylDNSClient.from_env()
>>> local_client.list_zones()

Requirements

  • python3
  • pip
  • virtualenv

To get started, you will want to setup your virtual environment.

  1. Ensure that you have virtualenv installed > pip install virtualenv
  2. Run ./bootstrap.sh to setup your environment (unless you really want all these dependencies to be installed locally, which we do not recommend).
  3. Activate your virtual environment > source .virtualenv/bin/activate and you will be ready to go!

Unit Tests

Unit tests are developed using pytest. We use Responses, which allows for simple mocking of HTTP endpoints.

To run unit tests, you can simply run python3 setup.py test. To target a specific test, you can run python3 setup.py test -a "-k my_test"

Functional Tests

Functional tests are also developed with pytest. These tests run against a local instance of VinylDNS. Note that for now they are not tied into our travis build, so they must be run locally for validation.

From your virtualenv, run tox -e func_test

Running a full build

When you are finished writing your code you will want to run everything including linters. The simplest way to do this is to run tox -e check,py36, which will run static checks and run unit tests.

If you see any failures / warnings, correct them until tox runs successfully.

If you do not have tox in your environment, pip install tox to add it. For more information you can read the tox docs.

Local Development

See the quickstart in the VinylDNS api for details on how to start up a local instance of the api in docker. With that running, you can make requests with the following client details:

local_client = VinylDNSClient("http://localhost:9000", "okAccessKey", "okSecretKey")
