The library is higher level and easier to use than the API, though for limited functionality of the API. It can be used to easily do basic access of Wikipedia pages, which could be useful for many educational, reference and other purposes. This recipe shows the basic use of the wikipedia library, by using it to search for information about oranges.</p> Add function to Python's __builtin__ module through C API - makefile (Text) 2015-10-16T12:11:36-07:00airween <p style="color: grey"> Text recipe 579111 by <a href="/recipes/users/4192997/">airween</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/api/">api</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/c/">c</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/makefile/">makefile</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/python/">python</a>). </p> <p>Makefile for add function to __builtin__ module through C API.</p> <p>C source is here:</p> <p><a href="" rel="nofollow"></a></p> <p>Python script is here:</p> <p><a href="" rel="nofollow"></a></p> Add function to Python's __builtin__ module through C API (C) 2015-10-16T12:11:58-07:00airween <p style="color: grey"> C recipe 579110 by <a href="/recipes/users/4192997/">airween</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/api/">api</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/builtins/">builtins</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/c/">c</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/exten/">exten</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/python/">python</a>). </p> <p>Add function to __builtin__ module through C API</p> <p>Sometimes it need to embedding a Python script to a C code, and it references to a function, which also provided by the same C code. Then you have to import the module, as you defined in your C code.</p> <p>But this import would be skipped, if you add your function to your __builtin__ module. In Python3 (3.5), there is the PyModule_AddFunctions() function, but in the previous versions, you can make it like this snippet.</p> <p>See these recipes:</p> <p>Makefile: <a href="" rel="nofollow"></a></p> <p>Python script: <a href="" rel="nofollow"></a></p> Fluent API method decorator (Python) 2015-07-08T13:20:58-07:00Oscar Byrne <p style="color: grey"> Python recipe 579078 by <a href="/recipes/users/4192487/">Oscar Byrne</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/api/">api</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/decorator/">decorator</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/decorators/">decorators</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/fluent/">fluent</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/interface/">interface</a>). </p> <p>A decorator for producing robust fluent API interfaces by returning a copy of self</p> Convert HTML to PDF with the PDFcrowd API (Python) 2015-03-07T20:22:54-08:00Vasudev Ram <p style="color: grey"> Python recipe 579032 by <a href="/recipes/users/4173351/">Vasudev Ram</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/api/">api</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/html/">html</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/pdf/">pdf</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/pdfcrowd/">pdfcrowd</a>). </p> <p>This recipe shows how to use Python and the PDFcrowd API to convert HTML content to PDF.

At the end I gave up and did it by myself, so the function fb_api, based on net/http, is able to make GET or POST requests (depending if the request is for retrieving information of the graph or is for changing the graph such as post feed etc.). It returns a dict from a JSON data structure.</p> <p>This might be useful for your facebook app ;)</p> Check PC Power (Python) 2011-08-28T12:25:49-07:00Frank Larkin <p style="color: grey"> Python recipe 577861 by <a href="/recipes/users/4179117/">Frank Larkin</a> (<a href="/recipes/tags/api/">api</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/computer/">computer</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/passing/">passing</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/pointers/">pointers</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/power/">power</a>, <a href="/recipes/tags/widows/">widows</a>). </p> <p>Call windows API GetSystemPowerStatus to determine if the AC power is on or off.
