How to Use
==========

Installation
------------

::

	easy_install rapleafApi

Usage
-----

>>> from rapleafApi import RapleafApi

{u'gender': u'Male', u'age': u'25-34'}


Query Options
-------------
The egg supports several ways to query Rapleaf's API: email, hashed email (either MD5 or SHA1 hash), name and postal (NAP), or name and ZIP+4 (NAZ).

**query_by_email(self, email, hash_email = False, show_available = False)**

| This method queries Rapleaf's API with the specified email. 
| If the hash_email option is set, then the email will be hashed before it's sent to Rapleaf.
| If the show_available option is set, then the string "Data Available" will be returned for those fields which the API account is not subscribed but for which RapLeaf has data.

| **query_by_md5(self, md5_email, show_available = False)**
| **query_by_sha1(self, sha1_email, show_available = False)**

| These methods query Rapleaf's API with the specified email hashes (either MD5 or SHA1, respectively). 
| If the show_available option is set, then the string "Data Available" will be returned for those fields which the API account is not subscribed but for which RapLeaf has data.
 
**query_by_nap(self, first, last, street, city, state, email = None, show_available = False)**

| This method queries Rapleaf's API with a name and postal address: first name, last name, street, city, and state acronym (i.e., the state's 2-character postal code).
| Though not necessary, adding an e-mail increases hit rate.
| If the show_available option is set, then the string "Data Available" will be returned for those fields which the API account is not subscribed but for which RapLeaf has data.


**query_by_naz(self, first, last, zip4, email = None, show_available = False)**

| This method queries Rapleaf's API with a name and ZIP+4 code. The ZIP+4 is a string with a 5-digit ZIP code and 4-digit extension separated by a dash.
| Though not necessary, adding an e-mail increases hit rate.
| If the show_available option is set, then the string "Data Available" will be returned for those fields which the API account is not subscribed but for which RapLeaf has data.

Dependencies
============
urllib3
::

	easy_install urllib3

or visit the url https://github.com/shazow/urllib3/zipball/master.
Once you've unzipped the download, open a terminal window and navigate to the folder into which you unzipped the download. When you open the folder, one of the subdirectories is 'urllib3.' Open it. It contains a script called setup.py which you'll run via the command 'python setup.py install'.

Note that, on unsuccessful requests, we raise an error. Unsuccessful requests are any requests which send back an http response status outside of the range 200 <= status < 300.
