Endpoints

class restfly.endpoint.APIEndpoint(api)[source]

APIEndpoint is the base model for which all API endpoint classes are sired from. The main benefit is the addition of the _check() function from which it’s possible to check the type & content of a variable to ensure that we are passing good data to the API.

_path

The URI path to append to the base path as is specified in the APISession object. This can become quite useful if most of the CRUD follows the same pathing. It is only used when using the APIEndpoint verbs (_get, _post, _put, etc.).

Type:str
Parameters:api (APISession) – The APISession (or sired child) instance that the endpoint will be using to perform calls to the API.
_delete(path=None, **kwargs)[source]

An abstraction of the APISession.delete method leveraging the local APIEndpoint _path attribute as well. This isn’t intended to be called directly, and instead is offered as a shortcut for methods within the endpoint to use instead of self._api.delete.

Parameters:
  • path (str, optional) – The URI path to append to the base path and _path attribute.
  • **kwargs (dict) – The keyword arguments to pass to the requests lib.
  • retry_on (list, optional) – A list of numeric response status codes to attempt retry on. This behavior is additive to the retry parameter in the exceptions.
Returns:

The response object from the requests lib.

Return type:

requests.Response

Examples

>>> class Endpoint(APIEndpoint):
...     _path = 'test'
...     def list(**kwargs):
...         return self._delete(**kwargs)
_get(path=None, **kwargs)[source]

An abstraction of the APISession.get method leveraging the local APIEndpoint _path attribute as well. This isn’t intended to be called directly, and instead is offered as a shortcut for methods within the endpoint to use instead of self._api.get.

Parameters:
  • path (str, optional) – The URI path to append to the base path and _path attribute.
  • **kwargs (dict) – The keyword arguments to pass to the requests lib.
  • retry_on (list, optional) – A list of numeric response status codes to attempt retry on. This behavior is additive to the retry parameter in the exceptions.
Returns:

The response object from the requests lib.

Return type:

requests.Response

...     _path = 'test'
...     def list(**kwargs):
...         return self._get(**kwargs)
_head(path=None, **kwargs)[source]

An abstraction of the APISession.head method leveraging the local APIEndpoint _path attribute as well. This isn’t intended to be called directly, and instead is offered as a shortcut for methods within the endpoint to use instead of self._api.head.

Parameters:
  • path (str, optional) – The URI path to append to the base path and _path attribute.
  • **kwargs (dict) – The keyword arguments to pass to the requests lib.
  • retry_on (list, optional) – A list of numeric response status codes to attempt retry on. This behavior is additive to the retry parameter in the exceptions.
Returns:

The response object from the requests lib.

Return type:

requests.Response

Examples

>>> class Endpoint(APIEndpoint):
...     _path = 'test'
...     def list(**kwargs):
...         return self._head(**kwargs)
_patch(path=None, **kwargs)[source]

An abstraction of the APISession.patch method leveraging the local APIEndpoint _path attribute as well. This isn’t intended to be called directly, and instead is offered as a shortcut for methods within the endpoint to use instead of self._api.patch.

Parameters:
  • path (str, optional) – The URI path to append to the base path and _path attribute.
  • **kwargs (dict) – The keyword arguments to pass to the requests lib.
  • retry_on (list, optional) – A list of numeric response status codes to attempt retry on. This behavior is additive to the retry parameter in the exceptions.
Returns:

The response object from the requests lib.

Return type:

requests.Response

Examples

>>> class Endpoint(APIEndpoint):
...     _path = 'test'
...     def list(**kwargs):
...         return self._patch(**kwargs)
_post(path=None, **kwargs)[source]

An abstraction of the APISession.post method leveraging the local APIEndpoint _path attribute as well. This isn’t intended to be called directly, and instead is offered as a shortcut for methods within the endpoint to use instead of self._api.post.

Parameters:
  • path (str, optional) – The URI path to append to the base path and _path attribute.
  • **kwargs (dict) – The keyword arguments to pass to the requests lib.
  • retry_on (list, optional) – A list of numeric response status codes to attempt retry on. This behavior is additive to the retry parameter in the exceptions.
Returns:

The response object from the requests lib.

Return type:

requests.Response

Examples

>>> class Endpoint(APIEndpoint):
...     _path = 'test'
...     def list(**kwargs):
...         return self._post(**kwargs)
_put(path=None, **kwargs)[source]

An abstraction of the APISession.put method leveraging the local APIEndpoint _path attribute as well. This isn’t intended to be called directly, and instead is offered as a shortcut for methods within the endpoint to use instead of self._api.put.

Parameters:
  • path (str, optional) – The URI path to append to the base path and _path attribute.
  • **kwargs (dict) – The keyword arguments to pass to the requests lib.
  • retry_on (list, optional) – A list of numeric response status codes to attempt retry on. This behavior is additive to the retry parameter in the exceptions.
Returns:

The response object from the requests lib.

Return type:

requests.Response

...         return self._put(**kwargs)
_request(method, path=None, **kwargs)[source]

An abstraction of the APISession._request method leveraging the local APIEndpoint _path attribute as well. This isn’t intended to be called directly, and instead is offered as a shortcut for methods within the endpoint to use instead of self._api._request.

Parameters:
  • method (str) – The HTTP method
  • path (str, optional) – The URI path to append to the base path and _path attribute.
  • **kwargs (dict) – The keyword arguments to pass to the requests lib.
