Python client for Phaxio

Project Description

A Python module for interacting with the Phaxio API.


Via pip:

$ pip install pyphaxio


Send a fax to multiple people using HTML message:

from phaxio import PhaxioApi

api = PhaxioApi(key, secret)
r = api.send(to=['4141234567', '5141234567', '6151234567'],
    string_data='Hello World!',

Generally, each supported method takes keyword arguments with the exact same names of the API method parameters as they’re described in the documentation. One exception to this rule is that filename is instead referred to as files. For example, to send a fax using files:

llama = os.path.join(os.path.dirname(__file__), 'tests/llama.pdf')
alpaca = os.path.join(os.path.dirname(__file__), 'tests/alpaca.pdf')
f = open(alpaca, 'rb')
r = api.send(to='4141234567', files=(llama, f))

See the tests for additional examples.

Error Handling

By default, the api calls return a dictionary. However, you can use PhaxioApi(key, secret, raise_errors=True) which will raise the following errors: * AuthenticationError - key/secret are invalid * APIError - error with api call * ServerError - server had an error and could not complete your request

Errors can be imported from the phaxio.exceptions module.
