Python Oauth client for Twitter
---------

I built this so that i didn't have to keep looking for an oauth client for twitter to use in python. 

It is based off of the PHP work from abrah.am (http://github.com/poseurtech/twitteroauth/tree/master). 
It was very helpful. 

I am using the OAuth lib that is from google gdata. I figure it is a working client and is in production use - so it should be solid. You can find it at:
http://gdata-python-client.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/src/gdata/oauth

With a bit of modification this client should work with other publishers. 

btw, i am a python n00b. so feel free to help out. 

Thanks,

The example client is included in the client.py. It is:

if __name__ == '__main__':
    consumer_key = ''
    consumer_secret = ''
    while not consumer_key:
        consumer_key = raw_input('Please enter consumer key: ')
    while not consumer_secret:
        consumer_secret = raw_input('Please enter consumer secret: ')
    auth_client = TwitterOAuthClient(consumer_key,consumer_secret)
    tok = auth_client.get_request_token()
    token = tok['oauth_token']
    token_secret = tok['oauth_token_secret']
    url = auth_client.get_authorize_url(token) 
    webbrowser.open(url)
    print "Visit this URL to authorize your app: " + url
    response_token = raw_input('What is the oauth_token from twitter: ')
    response_client = TwitterOAuthClient(consumer_key, consumer_secret,token, token_secret) 
    tok = response_client.get_access_token()
    print "Making signed request"
    #verify user access
    content = response_client.oauth_request('https://twitter.com/account/verify_credentials.json', method='POST')
    #make an update
    #content = response_client.oauth_request('https://twitter.com/statuses/update.xml', {'status':'Updated from a python oauth client. awesome.'}, method='POST')
    print content
   
    print 'Done.'
