Python script to query the Canvas LMS API to see if your friends are in class with you.

Limitation: This script will generate a number of false positives because it will only check by last names. This is to prevent you from having to know the full, legal spelling of your friend's first name that is on file with the university. This was a significant issue during testing.

Installation

  1. Get an API key from Canvas
    1. Navigate to Account > Settings > Approved Integrations
    2. Click + Create New Access Token
    3. Be sure to leave the expiration date blank
    4. Copy the token into the api_key variable
  2. Populate the friends array with the last name of all your friends
  3. Run the Python script
You can’t perform that action at this time.
