Script Launchpad through its web services interfaces
launchpadlib is an Open Source Python library that lets you treat the HTTP resources published by Launchpad's web service as Python objects responding to a standard set of commands. With launchpadlib you can integrate your applications into Launchpad without knowing a lot about HTTP client programming.
This document shows how to use a Python client to read and write Launchpad's data using the launchpadlib library. It doesn't cover the HTTP requests and responses that go back and forth behind the scenes: for that, see the "hacking" document. This document also doesn't cover the full range of what's possible with Launchpad's web service: for that, see the web service reference documentation.
Launchpad's web service currently exposes the following major parts of Launchpad:
* People and teams
* Team memberships
* Bugs and bugtasks
* The project registry
* Hosted files, such as bug attachments and mugshots.
As new features and capabilities are added to the web service, you'll be able to access most of them without having to update your copy of launchpadlib. You _will_ have to upgrade launchpadlib to get new client-side features (like support for uploaded files). The Launchpad team will put out an announcement whenever a server-side change means you should upgrade launchpadlib.
