Attempts to port the undocumented open inviter API to python :)

Understanding the PHP API

There are tons of files, but plugins/_hosted.plg.php overwrites almost everything.

Hosted API

  • Post XML to

  • <import>
      <service>{{ service }}</service>
  • Authentication by private key, used to sign the XML with an md5 hash.

  • Supported services are requested and cached every now and then.


  • Can't get hosted services lookup to work (services() function)
  • Contacts and services for a function name is ugly... import_contacts might be better
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
