mattermostdriver-asyncio 5.0.1

An asyncio Python Mattermost Driver

Python Mattermost Driver (now with asyncio!)(APIv4)

Info

The repository will try to keep up with the master of https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-api-reference

If something changes, it is most likely to change because the official mattermost api changed.

Installation

pip install mattermostdriver-asyncio

Documentation

Documentation can be found at https://vaelor.github.io/python-mattermost-driver/ .

Usage

from mattermostdriver import Driver

foo = Driver({
    # Required options
    'url': 'mattermost.server.com',
    'login_id': 'user.name',
    'password': 'verySecret',
    # Instead of login/password you can also use a personal access token
    'token': 'YourPersonalAccessToken',
    # Optional / defaults to
    'scheme': 'https',
    'port': 8065,
    'basepath': '/api/v4',
    # Use False if self signed/insecure certificate
    'verify': True,
    # The interval the websocket will ping the server to keep the connection alive
    'timeout': 30,
    'mfa_token': 'YourMFAToken'
})

# Most of the requests need you to be logged in, so calling login()
# should be the first thing you do after you created your Driver instance.
# login() returns the raw response
# If using a personal access token, you still need to run login().
# In this case, does not make a login request, but a `get_user('me')`
# and sets everything up in the client.
await foo.login()

# You can make api calls by using calling `Driver.endpointofchoice`.
# Using api[''] is deprecated for 5.0.0!
# So, for example, if you used `Driver.api['users'].get_user('me')` before,
# you now just do `Driver.users.get_user('me')`.
# The names of the endpoints and requests are almost identical to
# the names on the api.mattermost.com/v4 page.
# API calls always return the json the server send as a response.
await foo.users.get_user_by_username('another.name')

# If the api request needs additional parameters
# you can pass them to the function in the following way:
# - Path parameters are always simple parameters you pass to the function
await foo.users.get_user(user_id='me')

# - Query parameters are always passed by passing a `params` dict to the function
await foo.teams.get_teams(params={...})

# - Request Bodies are always passed by passing an `options` dict or array to the function
await foo.channels.create_channel(options={...})

# See the mattermost api documentation to see which parameters you need to pass.
await foo.channels.create_channel(options={
    'team_id': 'some_team_id',
    'name': 'awesome-channel',
    'display_name': 'awesome channel',
    'type': 'O'
})

# If you want to make a websocket connection to the mattermost server
# you can call the init_websocket method, passing an event_handler.
# Every Websocket event send by mattermost will be send to that event_handler.
# See the API documentation for which events are available.
async def event_handler(message):
    pass

await foo.init_websocket(event_handler)

# To upload a file you will need to pass a `files` dictionary
channel_id = foo.channels.get_channel_by_name_and_team_name('team', 'channel')['id']
await file_id = foo.files.upload_file(
            channel_id=channel_id
            files={'files': (filename, open(filename))})['file_infos'][0]['id']

# track the file id and pass it in `create_post` options, to attach the file
await foo.posts.create_post(options={
    'channel_id': channel_id,
    'message': 'This is the important file',
    'file_ids': [file_id]})
# If needed, you can make custom requests by calling `make_request`
await foo.client.make_request('post', '/endpoint', options=None, params=None, data=None, files=None, basepath=None)
# If you want to call a webhook/execute it use the `call_webhook` method.
# This method does not exist on the mattermost api AFAIK, I added it for ease of use.
await foo.hooks.call_webhook('myHookId', options) # Options are optional
