HackForums API v2 Integration

Project description


Other public Python implementations of the HackForums API have shown to be immature or varying levels of incomplete. The goal of this project is to provide a fully usable Python API for Hackforums available through pip. hfapi features include: - Read/Write profile user profile information - Easy and intuitive integration with Python network applications - Synchronous (requests) and Asynchronous (aiohttp) implementations - All API objects are defined with Pydantic

How-To: Install

Installation is easy!

python3 -m pip install -U hfapi

How-To Use

The synchronous and asynchronous API implementations are identical in functionality and usage with the addition of await syntax in the asynchronous version.

# use "HFApp" and "HFClient" for synchronous
from hfapi import HFAppAsync, HFClientAsync


hf = HFAppAsync(

# Hackforums will submit a GET request with "code" as a parameter
async def authorize(code: str):
    # use the `hf.authorize` method to create a client session
    client = await hf.authorize(code)
    me = await  # collect all (possible) data from current user
    return me.dict()
