The Crisp API Python wrapper. Authenticate, send messages, fetch conversations, access your agent accounts from your Python code.

Copyright 2018 Crisp IM SARL. See LICENSE for copying information.


Install the library:

pip install crisp-api

Then, import it:

from crisp_api import Crisp

Construct a new authenticated Crisp client with your identifier and key tokens.

client = Crisp()

client.authenticate(identifier, key)

Then, your client is ready to be consumed!


To authenticate against the API, generate your session identifier and session key once using the following cURL request in your terminal (replace YOUR_ACCOUNT_EMAIL and YOUR_ACCOUNT_PASSWORD):

curl -H "Content-Type: application/json" -X POST -d '{"email":"YOUR_ACCOUNT_EMAIL","password":"YOUR_ACCOUNT_PASSWORD"}' https://api.crisp.chat/v1/user/session/login

If authentication succeeds, you will get a JSON response containing your authentication keys: identifier and key. Keep those 2 values private, and store them safely for long-term use.

Then, add authentication parameters to your client instance right after you create it:

client = Crisp()

# Authenticate to API (identifier, key)
# eg. client.authenticate("13937834-f6ce-4556-ae4f-9e0c54faf038", "eb6c3623245521d7a6c35f5b29f3fa756e893f034ed551d84518961c5ff16dec")
client.authenticate(identifier, key)

# Now, you can use authenticated API sections.

πŸ”΄ Important: Be sure to login once, and re-use the same authentication keys (same identifier + key) in all your subsequent requests to the API. Do not generate new tokens from your code for every new request to the API (you will be heavily rate-limited; that will induce HTTP failures for some of your API calls).

Resource Methods

Most useful available Crisp API resources are implemented. Programmatic methods names are named after their label name in the API Reference.

Thus, it is straightforward to look for them in the library while reading the API Reference.

In the following method prototypes, crisp is to be replaced with your Crisp API instance. For example, instanciate client = Crisp() and then call eg: client.user.check_session_validity().

When calling a method that writes data to the API (eg. send a message with: client.website.send_message_in_conversation()), you need to submit it this way:

website_id = "88972681-a00c-4b3b-a383-cab281636484"
session_id = "session_9df2a21e-f113-41d4-8ed2-bad8b49cafd1"

  website_id, session_id,

    "type": "text",
    "content": "This message was sent from python-crisp-api! :)",
    "from": "operator",
    "origin": "chat"
