ari-web comments ( awc ) API wrapper


this libarary is a wrapper for API to help you manage, query and edit content using it

awc wraps pypika for sql queries and in sql.helpers you can access some pre-made SQL queries, i suggest you use pypika for all ( or at least most ) sql queries, reason being that manually writing them is fairly insecure, especially with concat and f-strings


see the examples folder


python3 -m pip install --user awc

or ( in the cloned repo dir )

python3 -m pip install -e .

-e is for editable, you can also leave it out if you wont be editing the library


awc is a synchronous library wrapping API, that includes wrappers for all known endpoints ( see ) and an interface to use custom endpoints using Awc.{request, get, post} APIs

provided packages :

  • awc -- base interface for the API ( required for awc.Awc interface so other helpers could use it )
  • awc.api -- wrappers for general APIs ( signatures are (awc: awc.Awc, ...) -> typing.Any )
  • awc.const -- includes required constants for the library and you to use
    • * note : ip refers to a SHA256 hash of an IP, not an actual IP
  • awc.exc -- custom exceptions
  • awc.sql -- SQL database definitions, wrappers around pypika
    • awc.sql.helpers -- SQL API helpers, pre-made SQL queries
  • awc.util -- utilities
  • awc.wrn -- custom warnings

it all starts from creating an instance of awc.Awc object, which is basically a wrapper around furl.furl ( a parsed instance url ) and requests.Session ( to make requests to API endpoints ), you instantiate it like this :

api: awc.Awc = awc.Awc("", "optional api key", rate_limit_wait)

rate_limit_wait is how many seconds should the requester wait if its rate limited ( default value is 5 )

example :

# will sleep 2 seconds if it gets rate limited
api: awc.Awc = awc.Awc("", "HIHIUHIyhu9f839uf9hiuh(U()I*)989hIOUjhfew", 2)

after that you are free to use the interface, make requests using the provided requester functions, get API urls ( api["some-api-endpoint"] => ) and use the provided library functions, wrappers and abstractions

also, a note : not all library functions will work if you dont have an API key, awc.Awc.require_key decorator is used on all functions that require an API key to work, on no api key it will raise awc.exc.NoAPIKeyError with called function name being the error message
