A python client library for the AWeber API.

Project description

AWeber API Python Library
The AWeber API Python Library allows you to quickly get up and running with
integrating access to the AWeber API into your Python applications. This
egg requires the python-oauth2 to handle the authentication.

.. image::


This egg can be installed by checking out the source::

$ sudo python install

Or can be installed using easy_install::

$ easy_install aweber_api


To connect the AWeber API Python Libray, you simply include the main class,
AWeberAPI in your application, then create an instace of it with your
application's consumer key and secret.::

from aweber_api import AWeberAPI
aweber = AWeberAPI(consumer_key, consumer_secret)
account = aweber.get_account(access_token, token_secret)

for list in account.lists:

Handling Errors

Sometimes errors happen and your application should handle them appropriately.
Whenever an API error occurs an AWeberAPIException will be raised with a
detailed error message and documentation link to explain whats wrong.

You should wrap any calls to the API in a try/except block.

Common Errors:
* Resource not found (404 error)
* Your application has been rate limited (403 error)
* Bad request (400 error)
* API Temporarily unavailable (503 error)

Refer to for the complete list::

from aweber_api import AWeberAPI, APIException
aweber = AWeberAPI(consumer_key, consumer_secret)
account = aweber.get_account(access_token, token_secret)

invalid_resource = account.load_from_url('/idontexist')
except APIException, exc:
print '404! {0}'.format(exc)

print len(account.lists)
except APIException, exc:
print 'hmm, something unexpected happened!: {0}'.format(exc)

Getting request tokens / access tokens

You can also use the AWeberAPI object to handle retrieving request tokens::

from aweber_api import AWeberAPI
aweber = AWeberAPI(consumer_key, consumer_secret)
request_token, request_token_secret = aweber.get_request_token(callback_url)
print aweber.authorize_url

As well as access tokens::

from aweber_api import AWeberAPI
aweber = AWeberAPI(consumer_key, consumer_secret)
aweber.user.verifier = verifier
aweber.user.request_token = request_token
aweber.user.token_secret = request_token_secret
access_token, access_token_secret = aweber.get_access_token()

Full Pylons example

Here is a simple Pylons example that uses the AWeber API Python Library to get
a request token, have it authorized, and then print some basic stats about the
web forms in that user's lists::

from pylons import session, request, tmpl_context as c
from pylons.controllers.util import redirect

from awebertest.lib.base import BaseController, render

from aweber_api import AWeberAPI

url = 'http://localhost:5000'
consumer_key = "vjckgsr5y4gfOa3PWnf"
consumer_secret = "u3sQ7vGGJBfds4q5dfgsTESi685c5x2wm6gZuIj"
class DemoController(BaseController):

def __before__(self):
self.aweber = AWeberAPI(consumer_key, consumer_secret)

def index(self):
token, secret = self.aweber.get_request_token(url+'/demo/get_access')
session['request_token_secret'] = secret

def get_access(self):
self.aweber.user.request_token = request.params['oauth_token']
self.aweber.user.token_secret = session['request_token_secret']
self.aweber.user.verifier = request.params['oauth_verifier']
session['token'], session['secret'] = self.aweber.get_access_token()

def show(self):
c.account = self.aweber.get_account(session['token'], session['secret'])
return render('data.mako')

In `data.mako`::

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<h1>Web Forms</h1>
% for list in c.account.lists:
<b>List Id:</b> ${}, name: ${}<br />
<b>Currently has:</b> ${len(list.web_forms)} web forms
% for form in list.web_forms:
<li>Form Id: ${}, name: ${}</li>
% endfor
% endfor
