Orange Datashare python client
This library is a python client for the orange datashare It brings:
- an api to build interact with datashare api
- a command line interface to directly interact with datashare
It is based on:
$ pip install orange-datashare
To build the library run :
$ python setup.py install
Run the OAuth Grant code process
To start using it you must create a developer account on the orange partner platform. Then create an application. But beware on one things: the redirect url must differ from any localhost or local url. Since we want to trick it, do as follow:
- pick a domain name such http://my-own-cloud.io:8080 (do not use https as it cannot be handled later)
- create the application
- map the domain my-own-cloud.io on localhost in your host file ( /etc/hosts for linux,
- %systemroot%\system32\drivers\etc\ for windows)
- run the following code
from orange_datashare.client import DatashareClient # provide the client id and client secret got on your application page client = DatashareClient(client_id, client_secret, ['read_indoor_temperature', 'read_connection']) # in this example the redirect url is http://myowncloud.io:8080 and /etc/hosts contains the line # 127.0.0.1 myowncloud.io redirect_uri = 'http://myowncloud.io:8080' url_to_open = client.init_authorize_code_process(redirect_uri=redirect_uri, state='1234') print 'Open this URL: %s' % url_to_open # this will block until an http request performs a GET locally with code as a query parameter code = client.wait_and_terminate_authorize_code_process() client.init_with_authorize_code(redirect_uri=redirect_uri, code=code) print 'refresh_token got %s' % api_manager.refresh_token
This will run a local http server listening to your domain, print an url to open. Open it in your browser, log in using your cloud account, consent the access for your application. You will be then redirected to your local http server. The code will be then extracted and exchanged for a token. You can save your refresh token. Next time you can instantiate the ApiManager as follows:
client = DatashareClient(client_id, client_secret, ['read_indoor_temperature', 'read_connection']) api_manager.init_with_token(refresh_token)
You are now fully able to use the api.
The api brings the following domains.
- connection: this API will allows you to manage connection.
- device: this API will allows you to manage devices of connection.
- subscription: this API will allows you to manage your subscriptions
- data: with this API you will be allowed to query the data of your devices
- deprecated_data: with this API you will be allowed to query the data of your devices with old format
- command: this API here to send command on light and thermostat devices
To get some example, take a look at the tests
Command Line interface
To run the client, enter the following command :
At first execution, it will ask you questions. Please note that your credentials won't be saved on your disk: only tokens will be kept for further use.
