Python Redmine

Python Redmine is a library for communicating with a Redmine project management application. Redmine exposes some of it’s data via REST API for which Python Redmine provides a simple but powerful Pythonic API inspired by a well-known Django ORM:

>>> from redmine import Redmine

>>> redmine = Redmine('', username='foo', password='bar')
>>> project = redmine.project.get('vacation')


>>> project.identifier

>>> project.created_on
datetime.datetime(2013, 12, 31, 13, 27, 47)

>>> project.issues
<redmine.resultsets.ResourceSet object with Issue resources>

>>> project.issues[0]
<redmine.resources.Issue #34441 "Vacation">

>>> dir(project.issues[0])
['assigned_to', 'author', 'created_on', 'description', 'done_ratio',
'due_date', 'estimated_hours', 'id', 'priority', 'project', 'relations',
'start_date', 'status', 'subject', 'time_entries', 'tracker', 'updated_on']

>>> project.issues[0].subject

>>> project.issues[0].time_entries
<redmine.resultsets.ResourceSet object with TimeEntry resources>
