OAuthlib authentication support for Requests.
This project provides first-class OAuth library support for Requests.
The OAuth 1 workflow
OAuth 1 can seem overly complicated and it sure has its quirks. Luckily, requests_oauthlib hides most of these and let you focus at the task at hand.
Accessing protected resources using requests_oauthlib is as simple as:
>>> from requests_oauthlib import OAuth1Session >>> twitter = OAuth1Session('client_key', client_secret='client_secret', resource_owner_key='resource_owner_key', resource_owner_secret='resource_owner_secret') >>> url = 'https://api.twitter.com/1/account/settings.json' >>> r = twitter.get(url)
Before accessing resources you will need to obtain a few credentials from your provider (i.e. Twitter) and authorization from the user for whom you wish to retrieve resources for. You can read all about this in the full OAuth 1 workflow guide on RTD.
The OAuth 2 workflow
OAuth 2 is generally simpler than OAuth 1 but comes in more flavours. The most common being the Authorization Code Grant, also known as the WebApplication flow.
Fetching a protected resource after obtaining an access token can be as simple as:
>>> from requests_oauthlib import OAuth2Session >>> google = OAuth2Session(r'client_id', token=r'token') >>> url = 'https://www.googleapis.com/oauth2/v1/userinfo' >>> r = google.get(url)
Before accessing resources you will need to obtain a few credentials from your provider (i.e. Google) and authorization from the user for whom you wish to retrieve resources for. You can read all about this in the full OAuth 2 workflow guide on RTD.
To install requests and requests_oauthlib you can use pip:
$ pip install requests requests_oauthlib
v0.4.0 (29 September 2013)
- OAuth1Session methods only return unicode strings. #55.
- Renamed requests_oauthlib.core to requests_oauthlib.oauth1_auth for consistency. #79.
- Added Facebook compliance fix and access_token_response hook to OAuth2Session. #63.
- Added LinkedIn compliance fix.
- Added refresh_token_response compliance hook, invoked before parsing the refresh token.
- Correctly limit compliance hooks to running only once!
- Content type guessing should only be done when no content type is given
- OAuth1 now updates r.headers instead of replacing it with non case insensitive dict
- Remove last use of Response.content (in OAuth1Session). #44.
