Welcome to PyHole!

PyHole provides an easy to use generic REST API client. It has object oriented style of calling and supports GET and POST connection methods. Connections are based on urllib and supports all protocols supported by urllib.

With PyHole you can create a call to any legacy REST API just in seconds!

Quickstart

A simple example will illustrate the powerful idea of PyHole calls:

>>> from pyhole import PyHole
>>> proxy = PyHole('http://domain.ltd/rest_api')
>>> proxy.category[123]('get_items', item_id=34)
http://domain.ltd/rest_api/category/123/get_items?item_id=34
>>> proxy.category[123]('get_item', item_id=34).get()
#this will actually make HTTP GET Request on the given URL and prints the response.

Lazy evaluation of a proxy object ensures that a real HTTP connection is not made until get(), post() or put() method is called.
