pydiscourse

Build Status Check out the Docs

A Python library for working with Discourse.

This is a fork of the original Tindie version. It was forked to include fixes, additional functionality, and to distribute a package on PyPI.

Goals

  • Exceptional documentation
  • Support all supported Python versions
  • Provide functional parity with the Discourse API, for the currently supported version of Discourse (something of a moving target)

The order here is important. The Discourse API is itself poorly documented so the level of documentation in the Python client is critical.

Installation

pip install pydiscourse

Examples

Create a client connection to a Discourse server:

from pydiscourse import DiscourseClient
client = DiscourseClient(
        'http://example.com',
        api_username='username',
        api_key='areallylongstringfromdiscourse')

Get info about a user:

user = client.user('eviltrout')
print user

user_topics = client.topics_by('johnsmith')
print user_topics

Create a new user:

user = client.create_user('The Black Knight', 'blacknight', 'knight@python.org', 'justafleshwound')

Implement SSO for Discourse with your Python server:

@login_required
def discourse_sso_view(request):
    payload = request.GET.get('sso')
    signature = request.GET.get('sig')
    nonce = sso_validate(payload, signature, SECRET)
    url = sso_redirect_url(nonce, SECRET, request.user.email, request.user.id, request.user.username)
    return redirect('http://discuss.example.com' + url)

Command line

To help experiment with the Discourse API, pydiscourse provides a simple command line client:

export DISCOURSE_API_KEY=your_master_key
pydiscoursecli --host-http://yourhost --api-user-system latest_topics
pydiscoursecli --host-http://yourhost --api-user-system topics_by johnsmith
pydiscoursecli --host-http://yourhost --api-user-system user eviltrout
