or, with easy_install:

$ easy_install otpauth


Generate and validate an otp code is very simple:

>>> from otpauth import OtpAuth
>>> auth = OtpAuth('secret')  # a secret string
>>> auth.hotp()  # generate a count based code, default count is 4
>>> auth.valid_hotp(330810)
>>> auth.hotp(2)  # generate a count based code, count is 2
>>> auth.valid_hotp(720111)
>>> auth.totp()  # generate a time based code
>>> auth.valid_totp(828657)


You can create a QR code for Google Authenticator to scan:

>>> from otpauth import OtpAuth
>>> auth = OtpAuth('secret')  # a secret string
>>> s = auth.to_uri('totp', 'Example:foo@bar.baz', 'Foo')
>>> import qrcode
>>> img = qrcode.make(s)
