Gab.com API Client
Based on the popular requests module, this is a minimal Gab.com API client.
There is a
help method available on all created objects, which can
be used to discover API methods and their call arguments.
The client object is dynamically created during init time. To speed things
up, you can create a Client object with a cached copy of the collections.json
object. Please see the example.py for one such example. To prime
a new cache, save the response of
Basic usage example:

Requires the following path parameters: group-id The following headers are defined: Authorization Additional optional parameters defined: before: (example: 0) >>> >>> client.groups.group_users(1234) Traceback (most recent call last): File "<console>", line 1, in <module> <snipped> requests.exceptions.HTTPError: 401 Client Error: Unauthorized for url: <snip> >>>
Wow! The example ran into an auth error? What the heck?
Yeah, this client library doesn't do auth, never write your own auth. Instead, use someone else's auth, and pass in a session object.
Please see example.py for a full working CLI example with authentication.
