oauth1.0_token or oauth2.0_token for vimeo? #491

In the vimeo exampl, oauth1.0_token is used but I have read elsewhere that we should be using oauth2.0_token. Should we use 2.0, not 1.0? If so, could you update the vimeo example to ensure I have it right? Thank you!!!

The oauth 1.0 access point no longer works, so oauth2.0 is much needed! -- Please!

Could this this attempt (#485) be a hint?

With a few caveats, here is a work-around, using the reticulate package and examples here:


# load python modules previously installed with pim:
os <- import("os")
sys <- import("sys")
vimeo <- import("vimeo")
json <- import("json")

v <- vimeo$VimeoClient(
  token = Sys.getenv("vimeo_api_access_token"),
  key = Sys.getenv("vimeo_api_key"),
  secret = Sys.getenv("vimeo_api_secret")

album <- v$get("/me/albums?per_page=100&fields=modified_time,name,duration,link,created_time")
album_json <- album$json()


  • download Python modules vimeo and json
  • obtain token, key, and secret from vimeo
  • album_json is an R list that you can parse using R's various JSON methods.
