A friendly wrapper library for the Everyplay API

Project description

A friendly wrapper around the Everyplay API based on the SoundCloud python wrapper.


To install everyplay-python, simply:

pip install everyplay

Or if you’re not hip to the pip:

easy_install everyplay

Basic Use

To use everyplay-python, you must first create a Client instance, passing at a minimum the client id you obtained when you registered your app:

import everyplay

client = everyplay.Client(client_id=YOUR_CLIENT_ID)

The client instance can then be used to fetch or modify resources:

videos = client.get('/videos', order='popularity', limit=10)
for video in videos:
    print video.title
app = client.get('/games/1')
print app.permalink_url


All OAuth2 authorization flows supported by the Everyplay API are available in everyplay-python. If you only need read-only access to public resources, simply provide a client id when creating a Client instance:

import everyplay

client = everyplay.Client(client_id=YOUR_CLIENT_ID)
video = client.get('/videos/7000')
print video.title

If however, you need to access private resources or modify a resource, you will need to have a user delegate access to your application. To do this, you can use one of the following OAuth2 authorization flows.

Authorization Code Flow

The Authorization Code Flow involves redirecting the user to where they will log in and grant access to your application:

import everyplay

client = everyplay.Client(

Note that redirect_uri must match the value you provided when you registered your application. After granting access, the user will be redirected to this uri, at which point your application can exchange the returned code for an access token:

access_token, expires, scope, refresh_token = client.exchange_token(
render_text("Hi There, %s" % client.get('/me').username)

User Credentials Flow

The User Credentials Flow allows you to exchange a username and password for an access token. Be cautious about using this flow, it’s not very kind to ask your users for their password, but may be necessary in some use cases. The credentials flow is currently only allowed for gamne profile users:

import everyplay

client = everyplay.Client(
print client.get('/me').username


Resolve a video and print its id:

import everyplay

client = everyplay.Client(client_id=YOUR_CLIENT_ID)

video = client.get('/resolve', url='')


Start following a user:

import everyplay

client = everyplay.Client(access_token="a valid access token")
user_id_to_follow = 123
client.put('/me/followings/%d' % user_id_to_follow)

Proxy Support

If you’re behind a proxy, you can specify it when creating a client:

import everyplay

proxies = {
    'http': ''
client = everyplay.Client(access_token="a valid access token",

The proxies kwarg is a dictionary with protocols as keys and host:port as values.

Running Tests

To run the tests, run:

$ pip install -r requirements.txt
$ nosetests --with-doctest
