# Pygerrit2 - Client library for interacting with Gerrit Code Review's REST API

![Version](https://img.shields.io/pypi/v/pygerrit2.png)
![License](https://img.shields.io/pypi/l/pygerrit2.png)

Pygerrit2 provides a simple interface for clients to interact with
[Gerrit Code Review][gerrit] via the REST API.

## Prerequisites

Pygerrit2 is compatible with Python 2.6 and Python 2.7.  Support for Python 3
is experimental.

Pygerrit2 depends on the [requests library][requests].


## Installation

To install pygerrit2, simply:

```bash
$ pip install pygerrit2
```

## Usage

This simple example shows how to get the user's open changes. Authentication
to Gerrit is done via HTTP Basic authentication, using an explicitly given
username and password:

```python
from requests.auth import HTTPBasicAuth
from pygerrit2.rest import GerritRestAPI

auth = HTTPBasicAuth('username', 'password')
rest = GerritRestAPI(url='http://review.example.net', auth=auth)
changes = rest.get("/changes/?q=owner:self%20status:open")
```

Note that is is not necessary to add the `/a/` prefix on the endpoint
URLs. This is automatically added when the API is instantiated with an
authentication object.

If the user's HTTP username and password are defined in the `.netrc`
file:

```bash
machine review.example.net login MyUsername password MyPassword
```

then it is possible to authenticate with those credentials:

```python
from pygerrit2.rest import GerritRestAPI
from pygerrit2.rest.auth import HTTPBasicAuthFromNetrc

url = 'http://review.example.net'
auth = HTTPBasicAuthFromNetrc(url=url)
rest = GerritRestAPI(url=url, auth=auth)
changes = rest.get("/changes/?q=owner:self%20status:open")
```

Note that the HTTP password is not the same as the SSH password. For
instructions on how to obtain the HTTP password, refer to Gerrit's
[HTTP upload settings documentation][settings].

Also note that in Gerrit version 2.14, support for HTTP Digest authentication
was removed and only HTTP Basic authentication is supported. When using
pygerrit2 against an earlier Gerrit version, it may be necessary to replace
the `HTTPBasic...` classes with the corresponding `HTTPDigest...` versions.

Refer to the [example script][example] for a full working example.
