I am trying to make a console based client, that consumes the stackexchange api. I have done the registration of my app, in order to enjoy higher quotas and received the necessary keys.
My problem is, that I cannot find a page that describes how the app is supposed to pass those credentials. I am using python, if it matters. Could you please shed some light?
