Read from OpenStreetMap

import osmapi
api = osmapi.OsmApi()
print api.NodeGet(123)
# {u'changeset': 532907, u'uid': 14298,
# u'timestamp': u'2007-09-29T09:19:17Z',
# u'lon': 10.790009299999999, u'visible': True,
# u'version': 1, u'user': u'Mede',
# u'lat': 59.9503044, u'tag': {}, u'id': 123}

Constructor

import osmapi
api = osmapi.OsmApi(api="https://api06.dev.openstreetmap.org", username = "you", password = "***")
api = osmapi.OsmApi(username = "you", passwordfile = "/etc/mypasswords")
api = osmapi.OsmApi(passwordfile = "/etc/mypasswords") # if only the passwordfile is specified, the credentials on the first line of the file will be used

Note: Each line in the password file should have the format user:password

Write to OpenStreetMap

import osmapi
api = osmapi.OsmApi(api="https://api06.dev.openstreetmap.org", username = u"metaodi", password = u"*******")
api.ChangesetCreate({u"comment": u"My first test"})
print api.NodeCreate({u"lon":1, u"lat":1, u"tag": {}})
# {u'changeset': 532907, u'lon': 1, u'version': 1, u'lat': 1, u'tag': {}, u'id': 164684}
api.ChangesetClose()

Note

Scripted imports and automated edits should only be carried out by those with experience and understanding of the way the OpenStreetMap community creates maps, and only with careful planning and consultation with the local community.

See the Import/Guidelines and Automated Edits/Code of Conduct for more information.

Development

If you want to help with the development of osmapi, you should clone this repository and install the requirements:

pip install -r requirements.txt
pip install -r test-requirements.txt

After that, it is recommended to install the flake8 pre-commit-hook:

flake8 --install-hook

Tests

To run the tests use the following command:

nosetests --verbose

By using tox you can even run the tests against different versions of python (2.7, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5 and 3.6):

tox

Release

To create a new release, follow these steps (please respect Semantic Versioning):

  1. Adapt the version number in osmapi/__init__.py
  2. Update the CHANGELOG with the version
  3. Create a pull request to merge develop into master (make sure the tests pass!)
  4. Create a new release/tag on GitHub (on the master branch)
  5. The publication on PyPI happens via Travis CI on every tagged commit
  6. Re-build the documentation (see above) and copy the generated file to index.html on the gh-pages branch

Attribution

This project was orginally developed by Etienne Chove. This repository is a copy of the original code from SVN (http://svn.openstreetmap.org/applications/utils/python_lib/OsmApi/OsmApi.py), with the goal to enable easy contribution via GitHub and release of this package via PyPI.
