Client for DNSimple REST API

Python DNSimple

## Introduction

This is a client for the DNSimple REST API. It currently allows you to fetch
existing domain info, as well as register new domains and manage domain

### Getting started

You'll need the `json` module that is included with python version 2.6 and
later, or the `simplejson` module if you are using an earlier version.

Import the module:

        from dnsimple import DNSimple

You can provide your DNSimple credentials in one of two ways:

1. Provide username/password or email/api\_token credentials programmatically:

        # Use username/password authentication: HTTP Basic
        dns = DNSimple(username=YOUR_USERNAME, password=YOUR_PASSWORD)

        # Use email/api_token credentials
        dns = DNSimple(email=YOUR_EMAIL_ADDRESS, api_token=YOUR_API_TOKEN)

2. Store you username/password credentials in a file called `.dnsimple` in the
   current directory with the following data:

        password: yourpassword

    You then need not provide any credentials when constructing `DNSimple`:

      dns = DNSimple()

## Domain Operations

### Check out your existing domains:

Just run:

        domains =

Results appear as a Python dict:

        {'domain': {'created_at': '2010-10-14T09:45:32Z',
                    'expires_at': '10/14/2011 5:45:00 AM',
                    'id': 999,
                    'last_enom_order_id': None,
                    'name': '',
                    'name_server_status': 'active',
                    'registrant_id': 99,
                    'registration_status': 'registered',
                    'updated_at': '2010-10-14T10:00:14Z',
                    'user_id': 99}},
        {'domain': {'created_at': '2010-10-15T16:02:34Z',
                    'expires_at': '10/15/2011 12:02:00 PM',
                    'id': 999,
                    'last_enom_order_id': None,
                    'name': '',
                    'name_server_status': 'active',
                    'registrant_id': 99,
                    'registration_status': 'registered',
                    'updated_at': '2010-10-15T16:30:16Z',
                    'user_id': 99}}]

### Get details for a specific domain


Results are the same as `domains()` above, but only show the domain specified.

### Check whether a domain is available


    # Hmm, looks like I'm too late to get that one...
    {u'currency': u'USD',
     u'currency_symbol': u'$',
     u'minimum_number_of_years': 1,
     u'name': u'',
     u'price': u'14.00',
     u'status': u'unavailable'}

### Register a new domain


This will register '', automatically picking the registrant\_id
from your first domain. To specify a particularly `registrant\_id`, just run:

        dns.register('', 99)

Responses will be in a dictionary describing the newly created domain, same as
the `domain()` call above.

### Delete a domain

Careful with this one!


## Record operations

All operations on domain records are now supported:

* List records: `records(id_or_domainname)`
* Get record details: `record(id_or_domainname, record_id)`
* Add record: `add_record(id_or_domainname, data)`
* Update record: `update_record(id_or_domainname, record_id, data)`
* Delete record: `delete_record(id_or_domainname, record_id)`
