EdgeGrid plugin for HTTPie.
To install from sources:
$ python setup.py install
If using python 3 on Mac, replace python with python3:
$ python3 setup.py install
If you have problems intalling from sources, you could use pip:
$ pip install httpie-edgegrid
The EdgeGrid plugin relies on a .edgerc credentials file that needs to be created in your home directory and organized by [section] following the format below. Each [section] can contain a different credentials set allowing you to store all of your credentials in a single .edgerc file.
[default] client_secret = xxxx host = xxxx # Note, don't include the https:// here access_token = xxxx client_token = xxxx max-body = xxxx [section1] client_secret = xxxx host = xxxx # Note, don't include the https:// here access_token = xxxx client_token = xxxx max-body = xxxx
Once you have the credentials set up, here is an example of what an Akamai OPEN API call would look like:
% http --auth-type edgegrid -a <section_name>: :/<api_endpoint>
Making the diagnostic-tools API locations call:
% http --auth-type edgegrid -a default: :/diagnostic-tools/v2/ghost-locations/available
MacOS Sierra users have reported the error "http: error: argument --auth-type/-A: invalid choice: 'edgegrid' (choose from 'basic', 'digest')" after installation. Try installing using pip instead.
The error "ImportError: ‘pyOpenSSL’ module missing required functionality. Try upgrading to v0.14 or newer" requires you to install an updated version of pyOpenSSL:
$ pip install --ignore-installed pyOpenSSL
Since v0.9.4 of httpie the Mac homebrew package is build with python3. If you get an error for "ImportError: No module named cryptography" then probably you installed httpie-edgegrid with python2.7. To explicitly install with python3 use:
$ sudo python3 setup.py install
Or with pip3:
$ sudo pip3 install httpie-edgegrid
Starting with HTTPie version 2.3.0 uploads are streamed, causing an issue posting JSON payloads as those don't include a content-length causing an error with the Edgegrid authentication libraries. See Issue #49 for more details
