I remember seeing a REST API client module for Python that was way easier to use than Requests. Can't find it now. Before I write a wrapper of my own, would like to ask around first.

It was smth like this:

>>> r = rest.API("http://example.com/api")
>>> r.foo(arg1=["a","b","c"],arg2=2)
  'bar': 'baz'

DRest is the closest I currently see:

(From its tutorial)

import drest

# Create a generic client api object
api = drest.API('http://localhost:8000/api/v1/')

# Make calls openly via any HTTP Method, and any path
# GET http://localhost:8000/api/v1/users/1/
response = api.make_request('GET', '/users/1/')

# Or attach a resource

# Get available resources
>>> ['users', 'projects', 'etc']

# Get all objects of a resource
# GET http://localhost:8000/api/v1/users/
response = api.users.get()

# Get a single resource with primary key '1'
# GET http://localhost:8000/api/v1/users/1/
response = api.users.get(1)

# Create a resource data dictionary
user_data = dict(

# POST http://localhost:8000/api/v1/users/
response = api.users.post(user_data)
