[vk.com](https://vk.com) is the largest social network in Russia.
This library is significantly improved fork of [vk](https://github.com/dimka665/vk)

## Requirements

* python (2.7, 3.4, 3.5, 3.6)


## Install

pip install vk-requests

## Usage

#### Using user token

import vk_requests


api = vk_requests.create_api(app_id=123, login='User', password='Password')
api.users.get(user_ids=1)
[{'first_name': 'Pavel', 'last_name': 'Durov', 'id': 1}]

#### Using service token

api = vk_requests.create_api(service_token="{YOUR_APP_SERVICE_TOKEN}")
...

**NOTE:** service token is preferable way, because it does not require user
credentials and oauth requests, but **not all the methods can be called with service token** (e.g *execute* can't be)

More info about service token: [Link](https://vk.com/dev/service_token)

### Custom scope or api version requests

Just pass `scope` and/or `api_version` parameters like

api = vk_requests.create_api(..., scope=['offline', 'status'], api_version='5.00')
api.status.set(text='Hello world!')

### Custom http requests parameters

To override [requests http parameters (e.g ssl options)](http://docs.python-requests.org/en/master/user/advanced/#ssl-cert-verification), just use `http_params` as follows:

api = vk_requests.create_api(http_params={'timeout': 15, 'verify': False})



### Enable logging

To enable library logging in your project you should do as follows:

import logging

# Setup basic config
logging.basicConfig(
level=logging.INFO,
format='%(asctime)s %(levelname)s [%(name)s] %(message)s',
)

# To change log level for the library logger
logging.getLogger('vk-requests').setLevel(logging.DEBUG)


## Features

### Simple queries

# Returns list of users
api.users.get(users_ids=1)

# Returns list of user's friends with extra fields
api.friends.get(user_id=1, fields=['nickname', 'city'])

# Returns result list from your custom api method
api.execute.YourMethod(**method_params)


### Interactive session

Interactive session gives you control over login parameters during the runtime.

**Useful if**

* 2FA authentication required
* CAPTCHA required
* For testing purposes

#### Usage

api = vk_requests.create_api(..., interactive=True)

If you don't pass login, password and app_id you will be asked to prompt it, i.e having this

api = vk_requests.create_api(app_id=XXX, login='***', password='***', interactive=True)

You will be asked only for *2FA authentication* or *captcha* code if required


### Auto-resolving conflicts when you're getting access from unusual place

Just pass your phone number during API initialization. In case of security check
it will be handled automatically, otherwise console input will be asked

api = vk_requests.create_api(
app_id=123, login='User', password='Password', phone_number='+79111234567')

## Streaming API

[Streaming API](https://vk.com/dev/streaming_api_docs) allows to subscribe on the events from vk.

**NOTE:** Only for *python 3.4* and later

### Install

pip install vk-requests[streaming]


### Stream rules

from vk_requests.streaming import StreamingAPI

streaming_api = StreamingAPI(service_token="{YOUR_SERVICE_TOKEN}")

# Add new rule
streaming_api.add_rule(value='my_keyword', tag='tag1')

# Get all rules
rules = streaming_api.get_rules()

# Remove the rule by tag
streaming_api.remove_rule(tag='tag1')



### Consumer

Streaming API provides convenient coroutine-based handler interface (callback)

import asyncio
from vk_requests import StreamingAPI

api = StreamingAPI(service_token="{YOUR_SERVICE_TOKEN}")
stream = api.get_stream()

@stream.consumer
@asyncio.coroutine
def handle_event(payload):
print(payload)


if __name__ == '__main__':
stream.consume()

* https://vk.com/dev/streaming_api_docs


## Tests

Tests are mostly checking integration part, so it requires some vk authentication data.

Before running tests locally define environment variables:

export VK_USER_LOGIN=<login> VK_USER_PASSWORD=<password> VK_APP_ID=<app_id> VK_PHONE_NUMBER=<phone_number> VK_SERVICE_TOKEN=<service_token>

To run tests:

tox
