Exist API Python Client Implementation

Requirements

Installing

Once you have satisfied the requirements listed above, install by running the following command from them terminal:

pip install exist

Quick Start

Install with pip install exist

python-exist can be used with one of three authorization types; basic, oauth, or an api_token

To use basic authorization and store the returned token, add your “username” and “password” in the following command:

exist authorize –username=<username> –password=<password>

If you already have a token, add it to the following command:

exist authorize –api_token=<token>

To use OAuth authorizations and store the returned token add your “App key”, “App secret” and “Redirect URL” (optional) in the following command (Note: this requires app to registered directly with Exist):

exist authorize –client_id=<app_key> –client_secret=<app_secret> –redirect_uri=<redirect_uri>

That will save the necessary credentials for making further API calls to a file called “exist.cfg”. These credentials should be kept private. You can use same the command-line client to access everything in the Exist API (http://developer.exist.io). You can also access the same resources using the Python API:

>>> from exist import Exist
>>> exist = Exist(<client_id>, <client_secret>, <access_token>)
>>> print(exist.user())

                }
            ]
        }
    ]
}

More commands are available as per the help section of the exist command from exist --help
