Python FogBugz API Wrapper This Python API is simply a wrapper around the FogBugz API, with some help from Leonard Richardson's BeautifulSoup (http://www.crummy.com/software/BeautifulSoup/) and the magic of Python's __getattr__(). Getting Started: To use the FogBugz API, just put the file fogbugz.py somewhere on your Python path. It's probably easiest to add this before the import: >>> import sys >>> sys.path.append("""c:\code\fbapi""") >>> from fogbugz import FogBugz A Quick Example: >>> from fogbugz import FogBugz >>> fb = FogBugz("http://example.fogbugz.com/") # URL is to your FogBugz install >>> fb.logon("email@example.com", "password") >>> resp = fb.search(q="assignedto:tyler") # All calls take named parameters, per the API >>> resp # Responses are BeautifulSoup objects of the response XML. <response><cases count="2"><case ixbug="1" operations="edit,assign,resolve,email,remind"></case><case ixbug="2" operations="edit,spam,assign,resolve,reply,forward,remind"></case></cases></response> >>> # You shouldn't need to know too much about BeautifulSoup, but the documentation can be found here: >>> # http://www.crummy.com/software/BeautifulSoup/documentation.html >>> for case in resp.cases.childGenerator(): # One way to access the cases ... print case['ixbug'] ... 1 2 >>> for case in resp.findAll('case'): # Another way to access the cases ... print case['operations'] ... edit,assign,resolve,email,remind edit,spam,assign,resolve,reply,forward,remind >>> resp = fb.edit(ixbug=1, sEvent="Edit from the API") # Note the named parameters >>> resp <response><case ixbug="1" operations="edit,assign,resolve,email,remind"></case></response> Note that, per API v5.0, all data between tags, such as the token, is now wrapped in CDATA. BeautifulSoup's implementation of CData generally allows for it to be treated as a string, except for one important case: CData.__str__() (a.k.a. str(CData)) returns the full text, including the CDATA wrapper (e.g. "<![CDATA[foo]]>"). To avoid accidentally including the CDATA tage, use CData.encode('utf-8') For more info on the API: http://our.fogbugz.com/help/topics/advanced/API.html Known Issues: * File uploading is currently unsupported for both cases and emails. Much of the API has not been thoroughly tested. Please assign bugs to Tyler Hicks-Wright.
