Python client implementation for json api. http://jsonapi.org/


Usage example

import jsonapi_requests

api = jsonapi_requests.Api.config({
    'API_ROOT': 'https://localhost/api/2.0',
    'AUTH': ('basic_auth_login', 'basic_auth_password'),
    'VALIDATE_SSL': False,
    'TIMEOUT': 1,
})

endpoint = api.endpoint('networks/cd9c124a-acc3-4e20-8c02-3a37d460df22/available-profiles')
response = endpoint.get()

for profile in response.data:
    print(profile.attributes['name'])
# Example output: "162 Sushi"

endpoint = api.endpoint('cookies')
endpoint.post(object=jsonapi_requests.JsonApiObject(
    type='cookies',
    attributes={
        'uuid': '09d3a4fff8d64335a1ee9f1d9d054161', 
        'domain': 'some.domain.pl'
    },
))
# Example output: <ApiResponse({'data': {'id': '81', 'attributes': {'uuid': '09d3a4fff8d64335a1ee9f1d9d054161', 'domain': 'some.domain.pl'}, 'type': 'cookies'}})>

Orm example

Lets say we have api endpoint: https://localhost/api/2.0/car/2 which returns

{
    "data":{
        "id": 2,
        "type": "car",
        "attributes": {
            "color": "red"
        },
        "relationships": {
            "driver": {
                "data": {
                    "id": 3, 
                    "type": "person"
                }
            }
        }
    },
    "included": [
        {
            "id": 3,
            "type": "person",
            "attributes": {
                "name": "Kowalski"
            },
            "relationships": {
                "married-to": {
                    "data": {
                        "id": 4, 
                        "type": "person"
                    }
                }
            }
        },
        {
            "id": 4,
            "type": "person",
            "attributes": {
                "name": "Kowalska"
            },
            "relationships": {
                "married-to": {
                    "data": {
                        "id": 3, 
                        "type": "person"
                    }
                }
            }
        },
    ]
}

Then we can run:

import jsonapi_requests

api = jsonapi_requests.orm.OrmApi.config({
    'API_ROOT': 'https://localhost/api/2.0',
    'AUTH': ('basic_auth_login', 'basic_auth_password'),
    'VALIDATE_SSL': False,
    'TIMEOUT': 1,
})

class Person(jsonapi_requests.orm.ApiModel):
    class Meta:
        type = 'person'
        api = api

    name = jsonapi_requests.orm.AttributeField('name')
    married_to = jsonapi_requests.orm.RelationField('married-to')

class Car(jsonapi_requests.orm.ApiModel):
    class Meta:
        type = 'car'
        api = api

    color = jsonapi_requests.orm.AttributeField('color')
    driver = jsonapi_requests.orm.RelationField('driver')

car = Car.from_id(2)

car.color # request happens here
# Example output: 'red'

car.driver.name
# Example output:  'Kowalski'

car.driver.married_to.name
# Example output: 'Kowalska'

car.driver.married_to.married_to.name
# Example output: 'Kowalski'

Authorization HTTP header forwarding in Flask application

When using jsonapi_requests with Flask, we can set jsonapi_requests.auth.FlaskForwardAuth() as AUTH configuration option to copy authorization header from current request context. It can be useful when fetching resources from different microservices.

Installation with flask support:

pip install jsonapi-requests[flask]

Example usage:

import jsonapi_requests

api = jsonapi_requests.Api.config({
    'API_ROOT': 'https://localhost/api/2.0',
    'AUTH': jsonapi_requests.auth.FlaskForwardAuth(),
})
