Python library for the API

Project description

Python library for the API.


Use the library directly:

import instapaperlib

instapaperlib.auth("username", "password")
instapaperlib.add_item("username", "password", "URL", "title")
# with selection test set
instapaperlib.add_item("username", "password", "URL", "title", "selection")

Create an instance to work with:

from instapaperlib import Instapaper

i = Instapaper("username", "password")

Catch the return codes to work with:

from instapaperlib import Instapaper

i = Instapaper("username", "password")
(statuscode, statusmessage) = i.add_item("URL", "title")

Also catch the response header:

from instapaperlib import Instapaper

i = Instapaper("username", "password")
(statuscode, statusmessage, title, location) = i.add_item("URL", "title", response_info=True)

Or use the cli client: -u user -p password -t title URL

If you have set your username:password in ~/.instapaperrc: URL


Install via pip:

pip install instapaperlib

Or, if you must:

easy_install instapaperlib
