Python client for a DjangoRestFramework based web site

Project Description
# Strato Python API Package

A python library for interacting with any Django web server base on django-rest-framework

Package is based on, but enhanced to support tokens and other features.

## Features

* Support for tokens. Both
* django-rest-framework's own tokens: `rest_framework.authentication.TokenAuthentication`
* JWT tokens: `rest_framework_jwt.authentication.JSONWebTokenAuthentication`

* Support for arguments (e.g. `?name1=val1&name2=val2`)

* Support for custom methods (e.g. ``/ap1/v1/object/custom/`)

## Requirements

restframeworkclient requires the following modules.

* Python 2.7+ or 3.4+
* requests

## Installation

pip install drf_client

## Usage Guide


options = {
'DOMAIN': '',
'API_PREFIX': 'api/v1',
'TOKEN_TYPE': 'jwt',
'TOKEN_FORMAT': 'JWT {token}',
'LOGIN': 'auth/login/',
'LOGOUT': 'auth/logout/',

c = RestApi(options)

ok = c.login(email=email, password=password)
if ok:

# GET some data
my_object = c.myresourcename.get()
for obj in my_object['results']:

payload = {
'data1': 'val1',
'data2': 'val2',

resp =


## Django Setup

Client assumes by default that all urls should end with a slash (tested with the default
router: `routers.DefaultRouter()`)

Apart from the regular Django and Rest Framework setup, this package currently relies on the following custom
login and logout API functions:

class AccountSerializer(serializers.ModelSerializer):
class Meta:
model = User
fields = ('id', 'email', 'username')

class APILogoutViewSet(APIView):
permission_classes = (permissions.IsAuthenticated,)

def post(self, request, format=None):
return Response({}, status=status.HTTP_204_NO_CONTENT)

urlpatterns = [
url(r'^auth/logout/$', APILogoutViewSet.as_view(), name='api-logout'),


## Development

To test, run python test or to run coverage analysis:

coverage run --source=iotile_cloud test
coverage report -m

You can also use py.test:
