Transifex Python Library

This library is a wrapper around the Transifex API, built to provide a simpler interface to users of the API.

At this moment, it supports only a subset of the endpoints of the API. In particular, it allows certain operations on Projects, Resources and Translations.

Usage

Initialization

Before making any requests, you need to setup the HTTP handler, which will be used for all subsequent requests.

Authentication works both with username/password or with an API token.

from txlib.http.auth import BasicAuth
from txlib.http.http_requests import HttpRequest
from txlib.registry import registry

credentials = BasicAuth(username='api', password='')

host = 'https:/www.transifex.com/'
conn = HttpRequest(host, auth=credentials)
registry.setup({'http_handler': conn})

Projects

TODO

Resources

Get resource

from txlib.api.resources import Resource
from txlib.http.exceptions import NotFoundError, ServerError

try:
    r = Resource.get(project_slug='project_slug', slug='resource_slug')
    print(r.slug) # 'resource_slug'
except NotFoundError:
    print('Resource not found')
except ServerError as e:
    print('Exception while retrieving resource: {}'.format(e))

Create/update resource

from txlib.api.resources import Resource
from txlib.http.exceptions import NotFoundError, ServerError

try:
    r = Resource.get(project_slug='project_slug', slug='resource_slug')
    # Resource exists, update it
    # Not all fields are allowed here. For example, if i18n_type
    # is provided, the request will fail with a 400 error
    try:
        r.save(content='{"key1": "text1"}')
    except ServerError as e:
        print('Exception while updating resource: {}'.format(e))

except NotFoundError:
    # Resource does not exist, create one now
    try:
        r = Resource(project_slug='project_slug', slug='resource_slug')
        r.save(name='R1', i18n_type='KEYVALUEJSON', content='{"key1": "text1"}')
    except ServerError as e:
        print('Exception while creating resource: {}'.format(e))

except ServerError as e:
    print('Exception while retrieving resource: {}'.format(e))

Alternatively, instead of passing all parameters to save(), you can do the following:

r = Resource.get(...)
r.name = '...'
r.i18n_type = '...'
r.content = '...'
r.save()

Translations

Get translation

from txlib.api.translations import Translation
from txlib.http.exceptions import NotFoundError, ServerError

try:
    t = Translation.get(project_slug='project_slug', slug='resource_slug', lang='translation_language')
    print(t.lang) # 'translation_language'
except NotFoundError:
    print('Translation not found')
except ServerError as e:
    print('Exception while retrieving translation: {}'.format(e))

Create/update translation

from txlib.api.translations import Translation
from txlib.http.exceptions import NotFoundError, ServerError

try:
    t = Translation(
        project_slug=project_slug, slug=resource_slug, lang=language_code
    )
    t.save(content=content)
except ServerError as e:
    print('Exception while retrieving translation: {}'.format(e))
You can’t perform that action at this time.
