As a student in South Asian languages, culture and history, specialising in comparative cultures and cognitive science, I take special interest in the influence of cultural paradigms in the perception and interaction with the world in terms of development. I am also a polyglot with a strong passion for learning languages, including programming languages such as Python. Also I am firm supporter of unix and free software.

Thanks. You probably have access to my email address as an administrator, could you please make sure it is not readable in the screenshot? Thanks.

comment API Implicit Authentication with Python
@Jonathan: I understand your suggestion and it makes sense. On the other hand, Firefox is also an application with an interface like any other. What matters here is the handling the HTTP requests, not so much the rendering of HTML (take for instance the w3m text-browser). So although I consider your advice, my point is to understand these processes and reproduce them programmatically, so embedding a ready-made browser wouldn't make much sense to me in this context.

@Jonathan: OK. It doesn't solve the initial problem though. Besides, if i'd proceed through the web-browser, I'd not be able to retrieve the access token at all, would I?

comment API Implicit Authentication with Python
@Jonathan: you got me really confused here. In order to authorise an application, one needs to be logged in. What the script does is log in the user first--doing through the application's interface what one would do through the browser. Once one is logged in, the OAuth requests is made with the URL quoted above. I am also aware the user can register using different openID providers, the above is a draft using SE login only, but the final script would allow other IDs too.

comment How to register application for API implicit authentication?
Which value should I use in the OAuth Domain? From what I understand--since I am making a desktop application--I should use https://stackexchange.com/oauth/login_success.
