Models and scripts to access the Bugzilla REST API.
Pull request Compare This branch is 19 commits ahead of jbalogh:master.


This package defines remoteobjects models and some scripts for all the resources provided in Gervase Markham's Bugzilla REST API. Right now it's pretty damn slow. I hope that will change.


Currently, this package depends on a pre-release version of remoteobjects, so we'll have to do this the long way.

  1. Check out the code:

    git clone git://
  2. (optional) Create your virtualenv using virtualenvwrapper:

    mkvirtualenv --no-site-packages bztools
  3. Install pip:

    easy_install pip
  4. Install the dependencies for bztools:

    pip install -r requirements.txt
  5. Run so the scripts are installed to your bin directory:

    python install

Now you'll have bzattach installed in the /bin directory of your virtual environment. To use the script, you'll have to activate this environment with workon bztools.

# We can use "None" for both instead to not authenticate

# Load our agent for BMO

# Set whatever REST API options we want

    'include_fields':   '_default,attachments',

# Get the bugs from the api
buglist = bmo.get_bug_list(options)

print "Found %s bugs" % (len(buglist))

for bug in buglist:
    print bug
