# Installation

Use pip:

pip install Office365-REST-Python-Client

# Usage: working with SharePoint resources

There are **two approaches** available to perform REST queries:

1) via `ClientRequest class` where you need to construct REST queries by specifying endpoint url, headers if required and payload (aka low level approach)

The first example demonstrates how to read Web resource:

import json

from office365.runtime.auth.authentication_context import AuthenticationContext
from office365.runtime.client_request import ClientRequest
from office365.runtime.utilities.request_options import RequestOptions

ctx_auth = AuthenticationContext(url)
if ctx_auth.acquire_token_for_user(username, password):
request = ClientRequest(ctx_auth)
options = RequestOptions("{0}/_api/web/".format(url))
options.set_header('Accept', 'application/json')
options.set_header('Content-Type', 'application/json')
data = request.execute_query_direct(options)
s = json.loads(data.content)
web_title = s['Title']
print "Web title: " + web_title
print ctx_auth.get_last_error()

2) via `ClientContext class` where you target client object resources such as Web, ListItem and etc.

from office365.runtime.auth.authentication_context import AuthenticationContext
from office365.sharepoint.client_context import ClientContext

ctx_auth = AuthenticationContext(url)
if ctx_auth.acquire_token_for_user(username, password):
ctx = ClientContext(url, ctx_auth)
web = ctx.web
print "Web title: {0}".format(['Title'])

print ctx_auth.get_last_error()
