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.
Command Line Interface
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.
