Xbox-WebAPI

PyPi - latest Documentation status Build status Discord chat channel

Xbox-WebAPI is a python library to authenticate with Xbox Live via your Microsoft Account and provides Xbox related Web-API.

Authentication is supported via OAuth2.

  • Register a new application in Azure AD
    • Name your app
    • Select "Personal Microsoft accounts only" under supported account types
    • Add http://localhost/auth/callback as a Redirect URI of type "Web"
  • Copy your Application (client) ID for later use
  • On the App Page, navigate to "Certificates & secrets"
    • Generate a new client secret and save for later use

Dependencies

  • Python >= 3.7

How to use

Install

pip install xbox-webapi

Authentication

Note: You must use non child account (> 18 years old)

Token save location: If tokenfile is not provided via cmdline, fallback of <appdirs.user_data_dir>/tokens.json is used as save-location

Specifically:

Windows: C:\\Users\\<username>\\AppData\\Local\\OpenXbox\\xbox

Mac OSX: /Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/xbox/tokens.json

Linux: /home/<username>/.local/share/xbox

For more information, see: https://pypi.org/project/appdirs and module: xbox.webapi.scripts.constants

xbox-authenticate --client-id <client-id> --client-secret <client-secret>

Example: Search Xbox Live via cmdline tool

  # Search Xbox One Catalog
  xbox-searchlive "Some game title"
