A wrapper for the mod.io API in Python.
import modio client = modio.Client(api_key="your api key here", access_token="your o auth 2 token here") game = client.get_game(345) #gets the game with id 345 print(game.name) #prints the name of the game mod = game.get_mod(231) #gets the mod for that game with id 231
How to install
pip install mod.io
Getting an OAuth 2 Access Token
To perform writes, you will need to authenticate your users via OAuth 2. To make this easy this library provides you with two functions to use in order to obtain your Access Token. You will need an API Key and an email adress to which you have access in order for this to work. Once you have both, follow the example below, you can either run this in a REPL or as a Python script. Don't forget to edit the script to add your own api key and email adress.
import modio client = modio.Client(api_key="your api key here") #request a security code be sent at this email adress client.email_request("email@example.com") #check your email for the security code code = input("Code: ") oauth2 = client.email_exchange(code) #your oauth2 token is now stored in the variable #to save into a file simply with open("oauth2.txt", "w") as file: file.write(oauth2) #and now the token is stored in oauth2.txt
/external/ endpoints are unsupported as they are intended to be integrated directly into games which isn't
the scope of this wrapper. This wrapper is mainly for reading the site although it does have some support for
editing and adding new stuff.
This also means that the Platform and Portal endpoints/headers are unsupported.
