Using the standard curl command:

curl -X GET \ -H "Accept: application/json" \ -H "Content-Type: application/json" \ -H "Authorization: Token abcdef123456890" \

We depend on the very useful requests library.

import requests import json r = requests.get('', headers={'Authorization': 'Token abcdef123456890', 'Content-Type': 'application/json'}) print(r.json()) else: print("Failed: errors = %r" % r.json()['detail'])

Assumes that Guzzle has been installed using Composer.

require 'vendor/autoload.php'; use GuzzleHttp\Client; use GuzzleHttp\Exception\ClientException; $client = new GuzzleHttp\Client(); try { $response = $client->get('', [ "headers" => [ "Accept" => "application/json", "Content-Type" => "application/json", "Authorization" => "Token abcdef123456890" ] ]); $json = $response->json(); var_dump($json); } catch (ClientException $e) { /* Failed uploads should return a "detail" dictionary describing the invalid fields: */ $errors = $json["detail"]; var_dump($errors); }

We use the Fluent API component of the Apache HttpComponents library.

Here's the Maven POM file:

4.0.0 crowdsurfer_post cspost 1.0-SNAPSHOT org.apache.httpcomponents httpclient 4.5 org.apache.httpcomponents fluent-hc 4.5

And here's the Java class:

package com.crowdsurfer.projects; import org.apache.http.client.fluent.Request; import; public class ProjectFetcher { private String token; public final static String URL = ""; public ProjectFetcher(String apitoken) { token = apitoken; } public String get(String uuid) throws IOException { return Request.Get(URL+uuid+'/') .addHeader("Authorization", "Token "+token) .execute().returnContent().asString(); } public static void main(String[] args) { ProjectFetcher getter = new ProjectFetcher(args[0]); try { String response = getter.get(args[1]); System.out.println("GET succeeded: "+response); } catch (IOException e) { System.err.println("Failed to get resource: "+e); } } }
