Medium SDK for Python

This repository contains the open source SDK for integrating Medium's OAuth2 REST API with your Python app.

For full API documentation, see our developer docs.

Installing dependencies

To install dependencies using pip:

pip install -r requirements.txt

Usage

from medium import Client

# Go to http://medium.com/me/applications to get your application_id and application_secret.
client = Client(application_id="MY_APPLICATION_ID", application_secret="MY_APPLICATION_SECRET")

# Build the URL where you can send the user to obtain an authorization code.
auth_url = client.get_authorization_url("secretstate", "https://yoursite.com/callback/medium",
                                        ["basicProfile", "publishPost"])

# (Send the user to the authorization URL to obtain an authorization code.)

# Exchange the authorization code for an access token.
auth = client.exchange_authorization_code("YOUR_AUTHORIZATION_CODE",
                                          "https://yoursite.com/callback/medium")

# The access token is automatically set on the client for you after
# a successful exchange, but if you already have a token, you can set it
# directly.
client.access_token = auth["access_token"]

# Get profile details of the user identified by the access token.
user = client.get_current_user()

# Create a draft post.
post = client.create_post(user_id=user["id"], title="Title", content="<h2>Title</h2><p>Content</p>",
                          content_format="html", publish_status="draft")

# When your access token expires, use the refresh token to get a new one.
client.exchange_refresh_token(auth["refresh_token"])

# Confirm everything went ok. post["url"] has the location of the created post.
print "My new post!", post["url"]

Running tests
