Phish.net API Wrappers

Phish.net API Wrappers: Python 2.x

The following Python 2 wrapper can communicate with the Phish.net API. It was submitted by Terry Moore. You can download the phish.net API python 2 wrapper for use.

#Query Phish.net API via Python 2.71.

import urllib, json, sys

url='https://api.phish.net/'
endpoint='api.js'

apikey = ''
format = 'json'
apiver = '2.0'
method = 'pnet.shows.setlists.latest'

#Build parameters to send via GET to api.js
params = urllib.urlencode({
  'api':apiver,
  'method':method,
  'format':format,
  'apikey':apikey
  })

#Attempt to open a connection and get the JSON formatted data
try:
  f = urllib.urlopen(url + endpoint + "?%s" % params)

#Do this for invalid URL
except IOError:
  print 'Error: Unable to connect. Invalid URL. '
  sys.exit(1)

#Get the response code
rsp = f.getcode()

#If the HTTP response is 200 (OK) then proceed
if rsp == 200:

  #Read the data
  data =  f.read()

  #Decode the data as JSON
  decoded = json.loads(data)

  #Print the Decoded JSON
  print 'DECODED: ', decoded

  #Print an individual JSON Record
  print 'GET INDIVIDUAL RECORD: ', decoded[0]['showdate']

else:
  #Do this if the not an HTTP response of 200
  print 'Error - HTTP Response Code: ',  rsp

#close the connection
f.close()

This should provide you the infrastructure to communicate with the phish.net API using any method.
