Comprehensive bindings and command line utility for the Pushover notification service

Project Description

python-pushover aims at providing comprehensive Python bindings for the API of the Pushover Notification Service as documented here.

Installation

You can install python-pushover from Pypi with:

$ pip install python-pushover

Or you can install it directly from GitHub:

git clone https://github.com/Thibauth/python-pushover.git
cd python-pushover
pip install .

Overview

After being imported, the module must be initialized by calling the init function with a valid application token. Thus, a typical use of the pushover module looks like this:

from pushover import init, Client

init("<token>")
client = Client("<user-key>").send_message("Hello!", title="Hello")

You can also pass the api_token optional argument to Client to initialize the module at the same time:

from pushover import Client

client = Client("<user-key>", api_token="<api-token>")
client.send_message("Hello!", title="Hello")

Command line

python-pushover also comes with a command line utility pushover that you can use as follows:

pushover --api-token <api-token> --user-key <user-key> "Hello!"

Use pushover --help to see the list of available options.

Configuration

Both the pushover module and the pushover command line utility support reading arguments from a configuration file.

The most basic configuration file looks like this:

[Default]
api_token=aaaaaa
user_key=xxxxxx

You can have additional sections and specify a device as well:

[Sam-iPhone]
api_token=bbbbbb
user_key=yyyyyy
device=iPhone

python-pushover will attempt to read the configuration from ~/.pushoverrc by default. The section to read can be specified by using the profile argument. With the configuration file above, you can send a message by simply doing:

from pushover import Client

client = Client().send_message("Hello!", title="Hello")

or pushover --title "Hello" "Hello!" from the command line.

API

You can access the full API documentation here.
