Tumblr OAuth1 Tutorial

Register a new application on the tumblr application page. Enter a call back url (can just be http://www.tumblr.com/dashboard) and get the OAuth Consumer Key and Secret Key.

>>> # Credentials from the application page
>>> key = '<the app key>'
>>> secret = '<the app secret>'

>>> # OAuth URLs given on the application page
>>> request_token_url = 'http://www.tumblr.com/oauth/request_token'
>>> authorization_base_url = 'http://www.tumblr.com/oauth/authorize'
>>> access_token_url = 'http://www.tumblr.com/oauth/access_token'

>>> # Fetch a request token
>>> from requests_oauthlib import OAuth1Session
>>> tumblr = OAuth1Session(key, client_secret=secret, callback_uri='http://www.tumblr.com/dashboard')
>>> tumblr.fetch_request_token(request_token_url)

>>> # Link user to authorization page
>>> authorization_url = tumblr.authorization_url(authorization_base_url)
>>> print 'Please go here and authorize,', authorization_url

>>> # Get the verifier code from the URL
>>> redirect_response = raw_input('Paste the full redirect URL here: ')
>>> tumblr.parse_authorization_response(redirect_response)

>>> # Fetch the access token
>>> tumblr.fetch_access_token(access_token_url)

>>> # Fetch a protected resource
>>> print tumblr.get('http://api.tumblr.com/v2/user/dashboard')
