After you register, grab your applications Consumer Key and Consumer Secret from the application details tab.
First, you’ll want to import your desired minfier from microurl
from microurl import google_mini

its as simple as that.
qr_url = qrcode(url)
Authentication for bitly
from microurl import bitlyauthentication authentication = bitlyauthentication(client_id, client_secret, redirect_uri) auth_url=authentication.authorization_url()
open auth_url in your browser.After authorizing app, you will be redirected to redirect_url with code perameter.
access_token=authentication.get_accesstoken_from_code(code) # code that you get to redirect_url in the above step
Authentication using username and password
access_token=authentication.get_accesstoken_from_username_pwd(bitlyusername or login email,password)
Basic Usage of Bitly
Function definitions (i.e. shorturl()) can be found by reading over microurl/bitly.py
from microurl import bitlyapi bitly=bitlyapi(access_token) # access_token is getting from previous steps minified=bitly.shorturl(longurl,domain)['url'] # domain is optional here

bitly.url_info(bitlylink,expand_user='True | False',hash='one or more bitly hashes') # expand_user,hash are optional here
