## Status

[![Build Status](https://travis-ci.org/vgrem/Office365-REST-Python-Client.svg?branch=master)](https://travis-ci.org/vgrem/Office365-REST-Python-Client)

# Installation

Use pip:

```
pip install Office365-REST-Python-Client
```


# Usage: working with SharePoint resources

There are **two approaches** available to perform REST queries:

1) via `ClientRequest class` where you need to construct REST queries by specifying endpoint url, headers if required and payload (aka low level approach)

The first example demonstrates how to read Web resource:

```
import json

from client.office365.runtime.auth.authentication_context import AuthenticationContext
from client.office365.runtime.client_request import ClientRequest
from client.office365.runtime.utilities.request_options import RequestOptions

ctx_auth = AuthenticationContext(url)
if ctx_auth.acquire_token_for_user(username, password):
request = ClientRequest(ctx_auth)
options = RequestOptions("{0}/_api/web/".format(url))
options.set_header('Accept', 'application/json')
options.set_header('Content-Type', 'application/json')
data = request.execute_query_direct(options)
s = json.loads(data.content)
web_title = s['Title']
print "Web title: " + web_title
else:
print ctx_auth.get_last_error()
```

2) via `ClientContext class` where you target client object resources such as Web, ListItem and etc.


```
from client.office365.runtime.auth.authentication_context import AuthenticationContext
from client.office365.sharepoint.client_context import ClientContext

ctx_auth = AuthenticationContext(url)
if ctx_auth.acquire_token_for_user(username, password):
ctx = ClientContext(url, ctx_auth)
web = ctx.web
ctx.load(web)
ctx.execute_query()
print "Web title: {0}".format(web.properties['Title'])

else:
print ctx_auth.get_last_error()
```


# Python Version
