Project description

buffer-app-python (buffpy)

Simple to use python library for Buffer App

Build Status Coverage Status

ORM`ish


Bufferapp.com details some useful entities:

  • user
  • profile
  • update
  • link
  • info

Every entity can be seen as an object that has attributes and methods. Those methods and attributes are linked to certain endpoints.

All objects are special dicts. For example, you can do something like:

user.id     => '12455678976asd'
user        => {...}

Authorization


Get access_token using buffer docs

service = AuthService(client_id, client_secret, redirect_uri)

url = service.authorize_url

# Access the url and retrieve the token
auth_code = #Paste the code from the redirected url

access_token = service.get_access_token(auth_code)

api = service.create_session(access_token)

User


A user represents a single Buffer user account.

api = API(client_id='client_id',
          client_secret='client_secret',
          access_token='access_token')

# instantiate an user object
user = User(api=api)

print(user)
print(user.id)
print(user.timezone)

Profile


A Buffer profile represents a connection to a single social media account.

profiles = Profiles(api=api)
print(profiles.all()) # get all profiles

# filter profiles using some criteria
profile = Profiles(api=api).filter(service='twitter')[0]
print(profile) # my twitter profile

# get schedules of my twitter profile
print(profile.schedules)

# update schedules times for my twitter profile
profile.schedules = {
  'days': ['tue', 'thu'],
  'times': ['13:45']
}

Update


An update represents a single post to a single social media account.

# retrieve a single update based on an id
update = Update(api=api, id='51de8d33e48c051712000019')
print(update)

# get update's interactions
print(update.interactions)

# edit
update = update.edit(text="Hey!")

# publish now
update.publish()

# move to top
update.move_to_top()

# delete
update.delete()

Updates and profiles


# get all pending updates of a social network profile
profile = Profiles(api=api).filter(service='twitter')[0]
print(profile.updates.pending)

# get all sent updates of a social network profile
print(profile.updates.sent)

# retrieve all update's interactions
print(profile.updates.sent[0].interactions)

# shuffle updates
print(profile.updates.shuffle(count=10))

# reorder updates
print(profile.updates.reorder(['51dd27629f7fdf520d00009a']))

# create an update
print(profile.updates.new("Hello there", now=True))

Links


A link represents a unique URL that has been shared through Buffer

# get a link's shares
print(Link(api=api, url='http%3A%2F%2Fbufferapp.com').shares)

Info


Returns an object with the current configuration that Buffer is using, including supported services, their icons and the varying limits of character and schedules.

# instantiate the api object
api = API(client_id='client_id',
          client_secret='client_secret',
          access_token='access_token')

# get api's info
print(api.info)
