(Super simple) Python Module for HipChat API

Description

Easy peasy wrapper for the HipChat API. Exposes core URI endpoint wrapper and some basic methods for common integrations.

Dependencies

None beyond the Python standard library.

Usage

Install:

pip install python-simple-hipchat

Instantiate:

import hipchat
hipster = hipchat.HipChat(token=YourHipChatToken)

Request a URI endpoint as described in the HipChat API docs:

hipster.method(url='method/url/', method="GET/POST", parameters={'name':'value', })

Example methods:

# List rooms
hipster.method('rooms/list')

# Post a message to a HipChat room
hipster.method('rooms/message', method='POST', parameters={'room_id': 8675309, 'from': 'HAL', 'message': 'All your base...'})

Two handy shortcut methods:

# List rooms, print response JSON
print hipster.list_rooms()

# POST a message to a room, print response JSON
print hipster.message_room(8675309, 'HAL', 'All your base...')
