Basic usage:

When running, you need to manually input App Key and App Token:

App Key: <Your App Key>
App Secret: <Your App Secret>

Next the web browser will automatically open the redirect uri.

Copy the uri to the console and the token will be generated:

Input the url or the token: <The URL or token>

Finally the token will also be stored in ./token.json.

As for advance usages, you can specify:

API Client

Basic usage:

from pyweibo import Auth, Client

# Get the token
auth = Auth()
token = auth.token.token

# Start the client
client = Client()
data = client.statuses.home_timeline.get(access_token=token)

The APIs can be referred from Official Doc.

You can access the api via client.api_name_1.api_name_2.get(param1=value1, param2=value2), where the last method call must be get or post.

Also you can use dict index like client[api_name_1][api_name_2].get(param1=value1, param2=value2).

The return value is a TextDict, where you can access the attributes directly like:

user = data.statuses[0].user

Also you can upload the picture like this:

with open('image.png', 'rb') as f:'Image', pic=f)
