Marvel API

Installation

Using pip:

pip install marvel

This is an API wrapper for Marvel.

Usage

Usage is as simple as it gets:

from marvel import Marvel
m = Marvel(PUBLIC_KEY, PRIVATE_KEY)

Now there are six objects presented namely, characters, comics, creators, events, series and stories as listed at Developers

characters = m.characters
comics = m.comics
creators = m.creators
events = m.events
series = m.series
stories = m.stories

Each of the above object returns back the appropriate response (json) as mentioned in official docs

Module Examples

Module Examples:

m = Marvel(PUBLIC_KEY, PRIVATE_KEY)
characters = m.characters

Get All Characters:

all_characters = characters.all()

Get Single Character:

character = characters.get(1011334)

Get Some Character's Comics:

comics = characters.comics(1011334)

Similarly, you could apply the same logic to different objects, an example:

m = Marvel(PUBLIC_KEY, PRIVATE_KEY)
stories = m.stories
all_stores = stories.all()
story = stories.get(id)
events = stories.events(id)

Finally, the sub resources that each object has are as follows:

  • Characters
    • all, get, comics, events, series, stories
  • Comics
    • all, get, characters, creators, events, stories
  • Creators
    • all, get, comics, events, series, stories
  • Events
    • all, get, characters, comics, creators, series, stories
  • Series
    • all, get, characters, comics, creators, events, stories
  • Stories
    • all, get, characters, comics, creators, events, series
