An OAuth2 client for the Coursera App Platform.
This project is a library consisting of a command line interface and a client for interacting with Coursera’s OAuth2 authorized APIs.
To install this sdk, simply execute:
sudo pip install courseraoauth2client
pip is a python package manager. If you do not have pip installed on your machine, please follow the installation instructions for your platform found at: https://pip.pypa.io/en/latest/installing.html#install-or-upgrade-pip
Before using Coursera’s OAuth2 APIs, be sure you know your client id, client secret, and scopes you want for for your application. You may create an application at https://accounts.coursera.org/console. When creating the application, set the Redirect URI to be http://localhost:9876.
Next, authorize your application by running courseraoauth2client config authorize --app APP where APP is a disambiguating identifier to be referred to later when making Coursera API calls.
The project includes a command line tool. Simply run:

Configures the Coursera OAuth2 client library.
courseraoauth2client config authorize --app APP
Configures the tool to go through the authorization secret flow for application APP.
courseraoauth2client config check-auth --app APP
Checks whether the current instance can authorize against Coursera’s API server for application APP
import requests from courseraoauth2client import oauth2 ... app = 'my_application_name' url = 'https://api.coursera.org/api/externalBasicProfiles.v1?q=me&fields=name' auth = oauth2.build_oauth2(app=app).build_authorizer() response = requests.get(url, auth=auth) print response.json()
If my_application_name was successfully configured, you will be able to successfully make a request. Otherwise, an exception will be thrown telling you to set up your application for API access.
Please us the github issue tracker to document any bugs or other issues you encounter while using this tool.
