Python development kit for prismic.io

Latest Version Build Status

Getting started

Install the kit for your project

Simply run:

pip install prismic

Get started with prismic.io

You can find out how to get started with prismic.io on our prismic.io developer's portal.

Get started using the kit

Also on our prismic.io developer's portal, on top of our full documentation, you will:

Kit's detailed documentation

You can find the documentation of the Python kit right here: http://prismic.readthedocs.org/en/latest/

Here is a basic example of use:

>>> import prismic
>>> api = prismic.get("http://your-repo.prismic.io/api", "access_token")
>>> doc = api.get_by_uid("speculoos-macaron")
>>> doc.get_text("product.name")
u'Speculoos Macaron'

Using Memcached (or any other cache)

By default, the kit will use Shelve to cache the requests (a file-based cache from the standard library). It is recommended to use a cache server instead, for example Memcached.

You can pass a Memcached client to the prismic.get call:

>>> import memcache
>>> api = prismic.get("http://your-lesbonneschoses.prismic.io/api", "access_token", memcache.Client(['127.0.0.1:11211']))

By duck typing you can pass any object that implement the set and get methods (see the NoCache object for the methods to implement).

Using a Custom Request Handler

By default, the kit will use a request handler based on the popular package requests. If you, for some reason, wants to use a custom request handler, such as URLFetch (if you use Google AppEngine), for example. You can pass a function to the prismic.get call, this way:

>>> import prismic
>>> import urllib2
>>> def custom_request_handler(full_url):
...     r = urllib2.urlopen(full_url)
...     return r.getcode(), r.read(), r.info()
...
>>> api = prismic.get("http://your-lesbonneschoses.prismic.io/api", "access_token", request_handler=custom_request_handler)

By duck typing you can pass any function that receives a URL and return a tuple containing status code, content and the headers of the response.
