GitHub OAuth 2 Tutorial

Setup credentials following the instructions on GitHub. When you have obtained a client_id and a client_secret you can try out the command line interactive example below.

>>> # Credentials you get from registering a new application
>>> client_id = '<the id you get from github>'
>>> client_secret = '<the secret you get from github>'

>>> # OAuth endpoints given in the GitHub API documentation
>>> authorization_base_url = 'https://github.com/login/oauth/authorize'
>>> token_url = 'https://github.com/login/oauth/access_token'

>>> from requests_oauthlib import OAuth2Session
>>> github = OAuth2Session(client_id)

>>> # Redirect user to GitHub for authorization
>>> authorization_url, state = github.authorization_url(authorization_base_url)
>>> print 'Please go here and authorize,', authorization_url

>>> # Get the authorization verifier code from the callback url
>>> redirect_response = raw_input('Paste the full redirect URL here:')

>>> # Fetch the access token
>>> github.fetch_token(token_url, client_secret=client_secret,
>>>         authorization_response=redirect_response)

>>> # Fetch a protected resource, i.e. user profile
>>> r = github.get('https://api.github.com/user')
>>> print r.content
