Auth plugin for HTTPie for MediaMath's Plex.

Project description

Plex OAuth2 Plugin for HTTPie.


$ pip install httpie-plex

You should now see plex under --auth-type in $ http --help output.


If you’ve installed HTTPie using Homebrew, but it’s pointing to your system Python, there may be other hoops to jump through. Note that this doesn’t apply if you’ve also installed Python via Homebrew: essentially, if pip list lists httpie, you’re good to go with the method above. Otherwise, you’ll need to manually install it into the proper directory. First, clone the repository. You’ll then need to figure out which version of HTTPie you have installed. Then do something like:

$ PYTHONPATH="/usr/local/Cellar/httpie/0.9.8/libexec/lib/python2.7/site-packages:/usr/local/Cellar/httpie/0.9.8/libexec/vendor/lib/python2.7/site-packages" \
    python install \


$ http --auth-type=plex \
    --auth='client_id:client_secret' \

Token Storage

To cache the OAuth2 token, this package uses a folder plex inside the HTTPie config directory. This defaults to, on *nix machines, ~/.httpie/plex. You can set a different base directory by setting the HTTPIE_CONFIG_DIR environment variable.

Testing and Contributing

Tests are run with

$ python test

Contributions are welcome! For new features, tests are a requirement and should have good coverage. For bug fixes/improvements, tests must pass. Further, code must be style-checked with pycodestyle.
