Detailed Documentation


The realmstatus-API reads the realmstatus-xml from to get the status of a specified realm (“Realm Up/Realm Down”) and the type of the realm (PvE,PvP etc.).


To use the API, just do an import like this

>>> from realmstatus_api import Realmstatus

Mock Realmstatus.get_realm_status and Realmstatus.get_realm_type

Returns output similar to what we would get from the API, so that this test can be used while offline

>>> from test_realmstatus import mocked_get_realm_status, mocked_get_realm_type

Mocking the functions

>>> Realmstatus.get_realm_status = mocked_get_realm_status
>>> Realmstatus.get_realm_type = mocked_get_realm_type

First create an instance of the Realmstatus object

>>> realmstatus = Realmstatus()

To get the status of a realm, use get_realm_status(* names). If you want, you can get the status of multiple realms (in a dictionary)

>>> status = realmstatus.get_realm_status("Azshara")["Azshara"]
>>> status == "Realm Up"

To get the type of a realm, use get_realm_type(* names). If you want, you can get the type of multiple realms (in a dictionary)

>>> type = realmstatus.get_realm_type("Azshara")["Azshara"]
>>> type == "PvP"
