Documentation

Airtable Python

Python interface to the Airtable's REST API - https://airtable.com - Build Status

Installation

Airtable Python uses the requests: make sure you have it installed by running

$ pip install requests

Getting started

Once you have created a new base and a new table through the Web interface, you're ready to start using Airtable Python.

import airtable
at = airtable.Airtable('BASE_ID', 'API_KEY')
at.get('TABLE_NAME')

Here's an example of response from the Restaurant's example base

API Reference

The available methods closely mimick the REST API:

Get

Given a table name, fetched one or multiple records.

at.get(table_name, [record_id], [limit], [offset])

where

table_name (required) is a string representing the table name
record_id (optional) is a string, which fetches a specific item by id. If not specified, all items are fetched
limit (optional) is an integer, and it can only be specified if record_id is not present, and limits the number of items fetched
offset is a string representing the record id from which we start the offset

Create

Creates a new entry in a table, and returns the newly created entry with its new ID.

at.create(table_name, data)

where

table_name (required) is a string representing the table name
data (required) is a dictionary containing the fields and the resepective values

Update

Updates some fields in a specific entry in the table. Fields which are not explicitely included will not get updated

at.update(table_name, record_id, data)

where

table_name (required) is a string representing the table name
record_id (required) is a string representing the item to update
data (required) is a dictionary containing the fields (and the resepective values) to be updated

Update All

Like the previous method, but updates all fields, clearing the ones that are not included in the request.

at.update_all(table_name, record_id, data)

Delete

Delete a specific record from the table

at.delete(table_name, record_id)

where

table_name (required) is a string representing the table name
record_id (required) is a string representing the item to update
