I have registered for an experimental app and i have the
client_secret and other keys. I have figured out the following -
- There is Implicit and Explicit authentication
- I am able to construct this uri https://stackoverflow.com/oauth/dialog?client_id=13502&scope=read_inbox,no_expiry&redirect_uri=https://stackexchange.com/oauth/login_success
- This leads me to an Authentication Page where I can either Approve it or Reject it.
However that is where I get stuck. Since I would like to do all these from inside a python script, how do I automatically Approve my app?
Can I use the client_secret token to automatically make authenticated calls to the stackoverflow api?
