This project provides first-class OAuth library support for
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:
.. code-block:: pycon
>>> 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 (e.g. 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 <https://requests-oauthlib.readthedocs.io/en/latest/oauth1_workflow.html>_.
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 extremely
simple. However, before accessing resources you will need to obtain a few
credentials from your provider (e.g. Google) and authorization from the user
for whom you wish to retrieve resources for. You can read all about this in the
OAuth 2 workflow guide on RTD <https://requests-oauthlib.readthedocs.io/en/latest/oauth2_workflow.html>_.
To install requests and requests_oauthlib you can use pip:
.. code-block:: bash
$ pip install requests requests_oauthlib
