Welcome to zipa

zipa ("apiz reversed") is a generic REST API client, which allows you to easily access REST APIs that follow conventions being used around the web.

Zipa in a shell

pip install zipa
>>> from zipa import api_github_com as gh
>>> gh.orgs.django.repos()

Under the hood zipa transforms your imports into clients. It follows a simple convention: HOSTNAME__PREFIX. For the hostname, single underscores are translated into dots and for the prefix into slashes.

For example: api_twitter_com__v1 becomes https://api.twitter.com/v1. The prefix part is optional.
