Readme

Python-Netflix

Python-Netflix is a Python Library to interface with Netflix REST API <http://developer.netflix.com/docs/REST_API_Reference>_ & OAuth

Features

  • Retrieve user information
  • Retrieve queue information
  • Add items to queue
  • And many more, supports all REST endpoints

Installation

Installing Python-Netflix is simple: ::

$ pip install python-netflix

Usage

Authorization URL

::

    n = NetflixAPI(api_key='*your app key*',
                    api_secret='*your app secret*',
                    callback_url='http://www.example.com/callback/')

    auth_props = n.get_authentication_tokens()
    auth_url = auth_props['auth_url']

    #Store this token in a session or something for later use in the next step.
    oauth_token_secret = auth_props['oauth_token_secret']

    print 'Connect with Netflix via %s' % auth_url

Once you click "Allow" be sure that there is a URL set up to handle getting finalized tokens and possibly adding them to your database to use their information at a later date.

Handling the callback

::

# In Django, you'd do something like
# oauth_token = request.GET.get('oauth_verifier')
# oauth_verifier = request.GET.get('oauth_verifier')

oauth_token = *Grab oauth token from URL*
oauth_verifier = *Grab oauth verifier from URL*

#Initiate the NetflixAPI class in your callback.
n = NetflixAPI(api_key='*your app key*',
               api_secret='*your app secret*',
               oauth_token=oauth_token,
               oauth_token_secret=session['netflix_session_keys'][  'oauth_token_secret'])

authorized_tokens = n.get_auth_tokens(oauth_verifier)

final_oauth_token = authorized_tokens['oauth_token']
final_oauth_token_secret = authorized_tokens['oauth_token_secret']
final_user_id = authorized_tokens['user_id']

Save those tokens and user_id to the database for a later use?

Return a list of the users Instant Queue

::

    n = NetflixAPI(api_key = '*your app key*',
                    api_secret = '*your app secret*',
                    oauth_token=final_tokens['oauth_token'],
                    oauth_token_secret=final_tokens['oauth_token_secret'])

    instant_queue = n.get('users/*final_user_id*/queues/instant')
    print instant_queue

Add Gabriel Iglesias: Hot and Fluffy to Instant Queue

::

# Assume you are using the same NetflixAPI instance as above
try:
    add_to_queue = n.post('users/*final_user_id*/queues/instant', params={'title_ref': 'http://api.netflix.com/catalog/titles/movies/70072945'})

    print add_to_queue

    # You can also added "position" to the params to set where this media will be positioned on the users queue.
except NetflixAPIError:
    # This returns the added item if successful.
    # If it's already in the queue, it will return a NetflixAPIError, code 412 

Remove Gabriel Iglesias: Hot and Fluffy to Instant Queue

::

    # Assume you are using the same NetflixAPI instance as above
    # When querying for the users Queue, when iterating over the Queue items
    # you can use the 'id' for the next call. Where it says *final_user_id*
    # that is automatically returned from the Netflix Instant Queue response.

    del_from_queue = n.delete('http://api-public.netflix.com/users/*final_user_id*/queues/instant/available/2/70072945')

    print del_from_queue

Rate Gabriel Iglesias: Hot and Fluffy
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
::

    try:
        # Create a new rating
        create_rating = n.post('users/*final_user_id*/ratings/title/actual/70072945', params={'rating': '5'})

        print create_rating
    except NetflixAPIError:
        # This returns a status message if successful.
        # If it's already been rated, it will return a NetflixAPIError, code 422
        pass


    # Update/Clear rating
    update_rating = n.put('users/*final_user_id*/ratings/title/actual/70072945', params={'rating': 'no_opinion'})

    print update_rating
