Google OAuth 2 Tutorial raises MissingCodeError #103

The code provided in the Google OAuth 2 tutorial ( gives an exception:

raise MissingCodeError("Missing code parameter in response.")
oauthlib.oauth2.rfc6749.errors.MissingCodeError: Missing code parameter in response.

The problem is not in the web application client that I created with the Google API console, because I wrote another piece of code doing the same thing but using the Python library google-api-python-client and it works.

Any idea?

My mistake!

I got confused because using:
google.fetch_token(token_url, client_secret=client_secret,
... authorization_response=redirect_response)
it is required that redirect_response is a full url.
While using:
google.fetch_token(token_url, client_secret=client_secret,
... code=redirect_response)
it is required that redirect_response is only the code replied by Google.

Glad you found it! You can pass the code directly as well using the "code" keyword argument instead of "authorization_response" if you prefer.
