A Python library for Pagure APIs. Pagure is a light-weight git-centered forge based on pygit2, created by Pierre-Yves Chibon.

Docker Development environment

To build the development environment we provide a Dockerfile. You can build the container as follow:

$ cd devel
$ docker build -t libpagure_dev .
$ cd ..

Once the container is built you can run the tests using the following command for Python 3.6

$ docker run -it --rm -v `pwd`:/code:z libpagure_dev py.test-3.6 --cov libpagure

and for Python 2.7.

$ docker run -it --rm -v `pwd`:/code:z libpagure_dev py.test-2.7 --cov libpagure

You can also run an interactive shell inside the container using:

$ docker run -it --rm -v `pwd`:/code:z libpagure_dev

In each case pwd command needs to return the root path of libpagure repository. (ie where this readme is)

Running the unit tests outside the Docker environment

First you need to install the dependencies needed ::

$ sudo dnf install python2-requests python3-requests python2-flake8\
python3-flake8 python2-pytest python3-pytest python3-pytest-cov\
python2-pytest-cov python2-pytest-mock python3-pytest-mock

Then you can execute the test suite using the following commands for Python 2.7 and 3.6. ::

$ py.test-3.6 --cov libpagure
$ py.test-2.7 --cov libpagure


Use pip to install.


pip3 install libpagure


python3 -m pip install libpagure


  • Import and Initialization:
>>> from libpagure import Pagure
>>> pg = Pagure()
  • Get the API version
>>> pg.api_version()
  • Create a new Project
>>> from libpagure import Pagure
>>> pg = Pagure(pagure_token="foobar")
>>> pg.new_project(name="foo", description="bar", url="",
>>> Project "foo" created

This library is a Python wrapper of Pagure web APIs. You can refer to Pagure API reference.
