Reference documentation.

blogger_v2

Blogger v2 GData API OAuth drop-in.

Blogger API docs: https://developers.google.com/blogger/docs/2.0/developers_guide_protocol

Python GData API docs: http://gdata-python-client.googlecode.com/hg/pydocs/gdata.blogger.data.html

Uses google-api-python-client to auth via OAuth 2. This describes how to get gdata-python-client to use an OAuth 2 token from google-api-python-client: http://blog.bossylobster.com/2012/12/bridging-oauth-20-objects-between-gdata.html#comment-form

Support was added to gdata-python-client here: https://code.google.com/p/gdata-python-client/source/detail?r=ecb1d49b5fbe05c9bc6c8525e18812ccc02badc0

disqus

Disqus OAuth drop-in.

Disqus API docs: https://disqus.com/api/docs/

This drop-in is even more similar to Instagram than Instagram is to Facebook. Differences:

  • urlopen must pass the api_key with each request (in addition to the access_token)
  • Response to access_token does not give much information about the user, so we additionally fetch /user/details before saving
  • Deny appears to be broken on Disqus’s side (clicking “No Thanks” has no effect), so we ignore that possibility for now.

TODO unify Disqus, Facebook, and Instagram

Uses oauthlib directly to authenticate and sign requests with OAuth 1.0 credentials. https://www.flickr.com/services/api/auth.oauth.html

Note that when users decline Flickr’s OAuth prompt by clicking the Cancel button, Flickr redirects them to its home page, not to us.

class oauth_dropins.flickr.FlickrAuth(*args, **kwds)[source]

Bases: oauth_dropins.models.BaseAuth

An authenticated Flickr user.

flickr_auth

Utility functions for calling signed Flickr API methods.

oauth_dropins.flickr_auth.signed_urlopen(url, token_key, token_secret, **kwargs)[source]

Call urllib2.urlopen(), signing the request with Flickr credentials.

Parameters:
  • url (string) – the url to open
  • token_key (string) – user’s access token
  • token_secret (string) – the user’s access token secret
  • timeout (Optional[int]) – the request timeout, falls back to HTTP_TIMEOUT if not specified
Returns:

the file-like object that is the result of urllib2.urlopen()

oauth_dropins.flickr_auth.call_api_method(method, params, token_key, token_secret)[source]

Call a Flickr API method.

Flickr has one API endpoint, where different methods are called by name.

If the “stat” field contains “fail”, then this method creates an artificial HTTPError 400 or 401 depending on the type of failure.

Parameters:
  • method (string) – the API method name (e.g. flickr.photos.getInfo)
  • params (dict) – the parameters to send to the API method
  • token_key (string) – the user’s API access token
  • token_secret (string) – the user’s API access token secret
Returns:

json object response from the API

oauth_dropins.flickr_auth.upload(params, file, token_key, token_secret)[source]

Upload a photo or video to this user’s Flickr account.

Flickr uploads use their own API endpoint, that returns only XML. https://www.flickr.com/services/api/upload.api.html

Unlike call_api_method(), this uses the requests library because urllib2 doesn’t support multi-part POSTs on its own.

Parameters:
  • params (dict) – the parameters to send to the API method
  • file (file-like object) – the image or video to upload
  • token_key (string) – the user’s API access token
  • token_secret (string) – the user’s API access token secret
Returns:

dict containing the photo id (as ‘id’)

Raises:

googleplus

class oauth_dropins.googleplus.GooglePlusAuth(*args, **kwds)[source]

Bases: oauth_dropins.models.BaseAuth

An authenticated Google+ user or page.

Provides methods that return information about this user (or page) and make OAuth-signed requests to the Google+ API. Stores OAuth credentials in the datastore. See models.BaseAuth for usage details.

Google+-specific details: implements http() and api() but not urlopen(). api() returns a apiclient.discovery.Resource. The datastore entity key name is the Google+ user id. Uses credentials from the stored CredentialsModel since google-api-python-client stores refresh tokens there.

user_display_name()[source]

Returns the user’s name.

creds()[source]

Returns an oauth2client.OAuth2Credentials.

access_token()[source]

Returns the OAuth access token string.

http(**kwargs)[source]

Returns an httplib2.Http that adds OAuth credentials to requests.

api()[source]

Returns an apiclient.discovery.Resource for the Google+ JSON API.

To use it, first choose a resource type (e.g. People), then make a call, then execute that call with an authorized Http instance. For example:

gpa = GooglePlusAuth.get_by_id(‘123’) results_json = gpa.people().search(query=’ryan’).execute(gpa.http())

More details: https://developers.google.com/api-client-library/python/

classmethod to(to_path, scopes=None)[source]

Override this since we need to_path to instantiate the oauth decorator.

class oauth_dropins.googleplus.CallbackHandler[source]

Bases: object

OAuth callback handler factory.

__weakref__

list of weak references to the object (if defined)

handlers

Based flow request handlers. Clients should use the individual site modules.

Example usage:

application = webapp2.WSGIApplication([
(‘/oauth_start’, facebook.StartHandler.to(‘/oauth_callback’)), (‘/oauth_callback’, facebook.CallbackHandler.to(‘/done’)), (‘/done’, AuthenticatedHandler), ... ]
class oauth_dropins.handlers.BaseHandler(request=None, response=None)[source]

Bases: webapp2.RequestHandler

Base request handler class. Provides the to() factory method.

handle_exception(e, debug)

A webapp2 exception handler that propagates HTTP exceptions into the response.

Use this as a webapp2.RequestHandler.handle_exception() method by adding this line to your handler class definition:

handle_exception = handlers.handle_exception

I originally tried to put this in a webapp2.RequestHandler subclass, but it gave me this exception:

File ".../webapp2-2.5.1/webapp2_extras/local.py", line 136, in _get_current_object
  raise RuntimeError('no object bound to %s' % self.__name__) RuntimeError: no object bound to app

These are probably related:

classmethod make_scope_str(extra, separator=', ')[source]

Returns an OAuth scopes query parameter value.

Combines DEFAULT_SCOPE and extra.

Parameters:
  • extra – string, sequence of strings, or None
  • separator – string (optional), the separator between multiple scopes. defaults to ‘,’
to_url(state=None)[source]

Returns a fully qualified callback URL based on to_path.

Includes scheme, host, and optional state.

request_url_with_state()[source]

Returns the current request URL, with the state query param if provided.

class oauth_dropins.handlers.StartHandler(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Bases: oauth_dropins.handlers.BaseHandler

Base class for starting an OAuth flow.

Users should use the to() class method when using this request handler in a WSGI application. See the file docstring for details.

If the ‘state’ query parameter is provided in the request data, it will be returned to the client in the OAuth callback handler. If the ‘scope’ query parameter is provided, it will be added to the existing OAuth scopes.

Alternatively, clients may call redirect_url() and HTTP 302 redirect to it manually, which will start the same OAuth flow.

redirect_url(state=None)[source]

oauth-dropin subclasses must implement this.

class oauth_dropins.handlers.CallbackHandler(request=None, response=None)[source]

Bases: oauth_dropins.handlers.BaseHandler

Base OAuth callback request handler.

Users can use the to() class method when using this request handler in a WSGI application to make it redirect to a given URL path on completion. See the file docstring for details.

Alternatively, you can subclass it and implement finish(), which will be called in the OAuth callback request directly, after the user has been authenticated.

The auth entity and optional state parameter provided to StartHandler will be passed to finish() or as query parameters to the redirect URL.

finish(auth_entity, state=None)[source]

Called when the OAuth flow is complete. Clients may override.

Parameters:
  • auth_entity – a site-specific subclass of models.BaseAuth, or None if the user declined the site’s OAuth authorization request.
  • state – the string passed to StartHandler.redirect_url()

So authenticating as a user should give you authority over their pages.
