  • Builds Reusable Objects for Consuming Web APIs.
  • Works with Requests, asyncio, and Twisted.
  • Inspired by Retrofit.

A Quick Walkthrough, with GitHub API v3

Turn a Python class into a self-describing consumer of your favorite HTTP webservice, using method decorators and function annotations:

from uplink import *

# To define common request metadata, you can decorate the class
# rather than each method separately.
@headers({"Accept": "application/vnd.github.v3.full+json"})
class GitHub(Consumer):

    def get_user(self, username):
        """Get a single user."""

    def update_user(self, access_token: Query, **info: Body):
        """Update an authenticated user."""

Let's build an instance of this GitHub API consumer for the main site! (Notice that I can use this same consumer class to also access any GitHub Enterprise instance by simply changing the base_url.):

github = GitHub(base_url="https://api.github.com/")

To access the GitHub API with this instance, we can invoke any of the methods that we defined in our class definition above. To illustrate, let's update my GitHub profile bio with update_user:

response = github.update_user(oauth_token, bio="Beam me up, Scotty!")

Voila, the method seamlessly builds the request (using the decorators and annotations from the method's definition) and executes it in the same call. And, by default, Uplink uses the powerful Requests library. So, the returned response is simply a requests.Response (documentation):

print(response.json()) # {u'disk_usage': 216141, u'private_gists': 0, ...

In essence, Uplink delivers reusable and self-sufficient objects for accessing HTTP webservices, with minimal code and user pain☺️.

Asynchronous Requests

Uplink includes support for concurrent requests with asyncio (for Python 3.4+) and Twisted (for all supported Python versions).

For example, let's create an instance of our GitHub API consumer that returns awaitable responses using aiohttp:

github = GitHub("https://api.github.com/", client=uplink.AiohttpClient())

Then, given a list of GitHub usernames, we can use the get_user method to fetch users concurrently with an asyncio event loop:

futures = map(github.get_user, usernames)
loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()

To learn more about Uplink's support for asynchronous requests, checkout the documentation. Also, this Gist provides short examples for using Uplink with asyncio and Twisted.


uplink supports Python 2.7 & 3.3-3.7.

To install the latest stable release, you can use pip:

$ pip install uplink

If you are interested in the cutting-edge, preview the upcoming release with:

$ pip install https://github.com/prkumar/uplink/archive/master.zip
