Airship Python Library
Python library for using Airship’s messaging platform and related features.
For prior versions, see our Release history .
$ pip install urbanairship
Using the library
The library is intended to be used with the small footprint of a single
import. To get started, import the package, and create an
Airship object representing a single Airship application.
import urbanairship as ua airship = ua.Airship('<app key>', '<master secret>') push = airship.create_push() push.audience = ua.ios_channel('074e84a2-9ed9-4eee-9ca4-cc597bfdbef3') push.notification = ua.notification(ios=ua.ios(alert='Hello from Python', badge=1)) push.device_types = ua.device_types('ios') push.send()
The library uses Requests for communication with the Airship API,
providing connection pooling and strict SSL checking. The
object is threadsafe, and can be instantiated once and reused in multiple threads.
urbanairship uses the standard logging module for integration into
an application’s existing logging. If you do not have logging
configured otherwise, your application can set it up like so:
import logging logging.basicConfig()
If you’re having trouble with the Airship API, you can turn on verbose debug logging.
As of Python 2.7,
DeprecationWarning warnings are silenced by
default. To enable them, use the
import warnings warnings.simplefilter('default')
