0.1.0

  • Complete rewrite from original hard contract binding specifics to variable/kwargs driven principle enable client to specify data specifics for call structure.

  • Design principle follows using encoding.com defaults, and enabling callers to override should details be stated.

  • Enforce key JSON data needs for success of a call to minimize poorly constructed or missing data components during call

  • Exception handling for all responses... as encoding.com embeds all errors within a HTTP status 200 call. Not restful or complies with https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7231

  • Errors parsed are thrown as exceptions enabling caller to catch and process accordingly

  • Many more Actions supported using PEP8

  • Unit tests initial set for positive and negative Core and needs to grow more to accomodate different scenarios. Need more data (image vs. movies)

  • Helpers to parse and retrieve key content from the encoding.com response

  • Poorly documented thumbnail data specifics now reflect email from devops at encoding.com

  • HTTP(S) support

  • Request package adoption, move away from URLLib

0.0.5

  • PEP8 Compliant
  • Pythonic handling of imports
  • Fix all warnings
  • Pythonic practice of auto-initialzer when invoking Encoding class objects
  • zip_safe flag is false as we want source code to be installed in site_packages. This package is so small, zip is not warranted

0.0.4

  • Original distribution to PyPi
