A client library for Orange Datashare

Project description

Orange Datashare python client

.. image::
.. image::

This library is a python client for the `orange datashare <>`_
It brings:

- an `api <#api>`_ to build interact with datashare api
- a `command line interface <#cli>`_ to directly interact with datashare


It is based on:

- `oauth2 client library <>`_, itself based on `requests <>`_.


From pip

.. code-block:: bash

$ pip install orange-datashare

From sources

To build the library run :

.. code-block:: bash

$ python install

Run the OAuth Grant code process

To start using it you must create a **developer** account on the
`orange partner platform <>`_.
Then create an application. But beware on one things: the **redirect url** must differ from any `localhost` or local url.
Since we want to trick it, do as follow:

- pick a domain name such `` (**do not use https as it cannot be handled later**)
- create the application
- map the **domain** `` on `localhost` in your **host file** ( `/etc/hosts` for linux,
`%systemroot%\\system32\\drivers\\etc\\` for windows)
- run the following code

.. code-block:: python

from orange_datashare.client import DatashareClient
# provide the client id and client secret got on your application page
client = DatashareClient(client_id, client_secret, ['read_indoor_temperature', 'read_connection'])
# in this example the redirect url is and /etc/hosts contains the line
redirect_uri = ''
url_to_open = client.init_authorize_code_process(redirect_uri=redirect_uri, state='1234')
print 'Open this URL: %s' % url_to_open
# this will block until an http request performs a GET locally with code as a query parameter
code = client.wait_and_terminate_authorize_code_process()
client.init_with_authorize_code(redirect_uri=redirect_uri, code=code)
print 'refresh_token got %s' % api_manager.refresh_token

This will run a **local http server listening to your domain**, print an url to open. **Open it in your browser**,
log in using your cloud account, consent the access for your application.
You will be then redirected to your **local http server**. The code will be then extracted and exchanged for a token.
You can save your `refresh token`. Next time you can instantiate the `ApiManager` as follows:

.. code-block:: python

client = DatashareClient(client_id, client_secret, ['read_indoor_temperature', 'read_connection'])

You are now fully able to use the api.


The api brings the following *domains*.

- `connection`: this API will allows you to manage connection.
- `device`: this API will allows you to manage devices of connection.
- `subscription`: this API will allows you to manage your subscriptions
- `data`: with this API you will be allowed to query the data of your devices
- `deprecated_data`: with this API you will be allowed to query the data of your devices with old format
- `command`: this API here to send command on light and thermostat devices

To get some example, take a look at the tests

Command Line interface

To run the client, enter the following command :

.. code-block:: bash

$ orange_datashare

At first execution, it will ask you questions.
Please note that your credentials won't be saved on your disk: only tokens will be kept for further use.
