By now the api does not requre authentiation, so to use is:

api = peerreach.Api()

# lookup one user by screen name
userdata = api.lookup_user(screen_name="user")

# lookup one user by user_id
userdata = api.lookup_user(user_id=12345)

# lookup various users by screen name
usersdata = api.lookup_user(screen_names=("user1", "user2"))

# lookup various users by user_ids
usersdata = api.lookup_user(user_ids=(12345, 54321))

The data returned is a dictionary containing the data returned by the api. You can change the deserializer to get the raw api response or the response as an object:

import peerreach

# with raw data
api = peerreach.Api(parser=peerreach.RawPArser())
rawdata = api.lookup_user(screen_name="user")

# with object
api = peerreach.Api(parser=peerreach.ObjectPArser())
objectdata = api.lookup_user(screen_name="user")
