Requests-OAuthlib build-status coverage-status Documentation Status

This project provides first-class OAuth library support for Requests.

The OAuth 1 workflow

OAuth 1 can seem overly complicated and it sure has its quirks. Luckily, requests_oauthlib hides most of these and let you focus at the task at hand.

Accessing protected resources using requests_oauthlib is as simple as:

>>> from requests_oauthlib import OAuth1Session
>>> twitter = OAuth1Session('client_key',
                            client_secret='client_secret',
                            resource_owner_key='resource_owner_key',
                            resource_owner_secret='resource_owner_secret')
>>> url = 'https://api.twitter.com/1/account/settings.json'
>>> r = twitter.get(url)

Before accessing resources you will need to obtain a few credentials from your provider (i.e. Twitter) and authorization from the user for whom you wish to retrieve resources for. You can read all about this in the full OAuth 1 workflow guide on RTD.

The OAuth 2 workflow

OAuth 2 is generally simpler than OAuth 1 but comes in more flavours. The most common being the Authorization Code Grant, also known as the WebApplication flow.

Fetching a protected resource after obtaining an access token can be extremely simple. However, before accessing resources you will need to obtain a few credentials from your provider (i.e. Google) and authorization from the user for whom you wish to retrieve resources for. You can read all about this in the full OAuth 2 workflow guide on RTD.
