Dealing with JSON response to Twitter API

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Long time no post - the forum has changed a lot since I was last here! Hope you are all ok.

Anyway, the reason I'm here is because I'm writing a program that needs to post a Tweet to a Twitter account. I am using the >Twitter UDF, which I have already adapted slightly so that once a user has logged in once the username and password is not need because the OAuth token and OAuth token secret is stored and used again, rather than regenerating a them each time the program is launched. However, since the UDF was last updated Twitter has updated their API and retired the use of XML so now the response is only given in JSON.

Fortunately, to get the UDF tweeting again it was simply a case of changing the URL that the data was POSTed to. However, because IE doesn't actually render/display JSON files, whenever the data is sent a File Download dialog appears asking to download the JSON file that is returned.

Does anyone know a way around this to stop the dialog appearing, other than sending a keypress when the window is detected?

Thanks in advance

Hi ,

I have verified the modified twitter udf as explained in the below mentioned posts and it works as per the Twitter API V1.1 .

If there anything else you would want in this UDF ?

Regards

      i searched in the forom but i didn't found any Google drive api UDF
      for that i liked to ask you for that
      i had read the google drive api documentation but i couldn't do it
      please help me
      here is the api doc
      note i've got the apikey and i have the file id
      what i want is to get the title of the file (the file name)
      because i want to download the files from the google drive using the autoit

      Introduction
      JSON (Javascript Object Notation) is a popular data-interchange format and supported by a lot of script languages. On AutoIt, there is already a >JSON UDF written by Gabriel Boehme. It is good but too slow, and not supports unicode and control characters very well. So I write a new one (and of course, fast one as usual).

      I use a machine code version of JSON parser called "jsmn". jsmn not only supports standard JSON, but also accepts some non-strict JSON string. See below for example.
       
      Important Update!!
      I rename the library from jsmn.au3 to json.au3. All function names are changed, too.
       
      Decoding Function
      Json_Decode($Json) $Json can be a standard or non-standard JSON string. For example, it accepts:
      { server: example.com port: 80 message: "this looks like a config file" } The most JSON data type will be decoded into corresponding AutoIt variable, including 1D array, string, number, true, false, and null. JSON object will be decoded into "Windows Scripting Dictionary Object" retuned from ObjCreate("Scripting.Dictionary"). AutoIt build-in functions like IsArray, IsBool, etc. can be used to check the returned data type. But for Object and Null, Json_IsObject() and Json_IsNull() should be used.

      If the input JSON string is invalid, @Error will be set to $JSMN_ERROR_INVAL. And if the input JSON string is not finish (maybe read from stream?), @Error will be set to $JSMN_ERROR_PART.

      Encoding Function
      Json_Encode($Data, $Option = 0, $Indent = "\t", $ArraySep = ",\r\n", $ObjectSep = ",\r\n", $ColonSep = ": ") $Data can be a string, number, bool, keyword(default or null), 1D arrry, or "Scripting.Dictionary" COM object. Ptr will be converted to number, Binary will be converted to string in UTF8 encoding. Other unsupported types like 2D array, dllstruct or object will be encoded into null.

      $Option is bitmask consisting following constant:
      $JSON_UNESCAPED_ASCII ; Don't escape ascii charcters between chr(1) ~ chr(0x1f) $JSON_UNESCAPED_UNICODE ; Encode multibyte Unicode characters literally $JSON_UNESCAPED_SLASHES ; Don't escape / $JSON_HEX_TAG ; All < and > are converted to \u003C and \u003E $JSON_HEX_AMP ; All &amp;amp;amp;amp;s are converted to \u0026 $JSON_HEX_APOS ; All ' are converted to \u0027 $JSON_HEX_QUOT ; All " are converted to \u0022 $JSON_PRETTY_PRINT ; Use whitespace in returned data to format it $JSON_STRICT_PRINT ; Make sure returned JSON string is RFC4627 compliant $JSON_UNQUOTED_STRING ; Output unquoted string if possible (conflicting with $JSMN_STRICT_PRINT) Most encoding option have the same means like PHP's json_enocde() function. When $JSON_PRETTY_PRINT is set, output format can be change by other 4 parameters ($Indent, $ArraySep, $ObjectSep, and $ColonSep). Because these 4 output format parameters will be checked inside Jsmn_Encode() function, returned string will be always accepted by Jsmn_Decode(). $JSON_UNQUOTED_STRING can be used to output unquoted string that also accetped by Jsmn_Decode().

      $JSON_STRICT_PRINT is used to check output format setting and avoid non-standard JSON output. So this option is conflicting with $JSON_UNQUOTED_STRING.

      Get and Put Functions
      Json_Put(ByRef $Var, $Notation, $Data, $CheckExists = False) Json_Get(ByRef $Var, $Notation) These functions helps user to access object or array more easily. Both dot notation and square bracket notation can be supported. Json_Put() by default will create non-exists objects and arrays. For example:
      Local $Obj Json_Put($Obj, ".foo", "foo") Json_Put($Obj, ".bar[0]", "bar") Json_Put($Obj, ".test[1].foo.bar[2].foo.bar", "Test") Local $Test = Json_Get($Obj, '["test"][1]["foo"]["bar"][2]["foo"]["bar"]') ; "Test" Object Help Functions
      Json_ObjCreate() Json_ObjPut(ByRef $Object, $Key, $Value) Json_ObjGet(ByRef $Object, $Key) Json_ObjDelete(ByRef $Object, $Key) Json_ObjExists(ByRef $Object, $Key) Json_ObjGetCount(ByRef $Object) Json_ObjGetKeys(ByRef $Object) Json_ObjClear(ByRef $Object) These functions are just warps of "Scripting.Dictionary" COM object. You can use these functions if you are not already familiar with it.
       
      == Update 2013/05/19 ==
       
      * Add Jsmn_Encode() option "$JSMN_UNESCAPED_ASCII". Now the default output of Json_Encode() is exactly the same as PHP's json_encode() function (for example, chr(1) will be encoded into u0001).
      $JSON_UNESCAPED_ASCII ; Don't escape ascii charcters between chr(1) ~ chr(0x1f)  
      == Update 2015/01/08 ==
      * Rename the library from jsmn.au3 to json.au3. All function names are changed, too.
      * Add Json_Put() and Json_Get()
      * Add Null support
      * Using BinaryCall.au3 to loading the machine code.
       
      == Update 2018/01/13==   (Jos)
      * Add JsonDump() to list all Json Keys and their values to easily figure out what they are.
      == Update 2018/10/01==  (Jos)
      * Fixed JsonDump() some fields and values were not showing as discussed here  - tnx @TheXman .
      == Update 2018/10/01b==   (Jos)
      * Added Json_ObjGetItems, Tidied source and fixed au3check warnings - tnx @TheXman .
      == Update 2018/10/28==   (Jos)
      * Added declaration for $value to avoid au3check warning - tnx @DerPensionist
      == Update 2018/12/16==   (Jos)
      * Added another declaration for $value to avoid au3check warning  and updated the version at the top - tnx @maniootek
      == Update 2018/12/29==   (Jos)
      * Changed Json_ObjGet() and Json_ObjExists() to allow for multilevel object in string.
      == Update 2019/01/17==   (Jos)
      * Added support for DOT notation in JSON functions.
      _Json(2019.01.17).zip   reverted to this version as the last version has some regression issues that is being worked on.
      == Update 2019/07/15==   (Jos)
      *  Added support for reading keys with a dot inside when using a dot as separator (updated)

      This is probably a very simple question (I hope!)
      I'm looking to use a UDF to access a SQL database, and have found ADO.au3, but I can't seem to work out how to use it.
      I've copied the files ado.au3 and ado_constants.au3 into the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Include, then opened SciTe and started a new project.
      But when I type #include<AD - I don't get offered ADO.au3.
      (I know I should be using the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\UserInclude, but when it didn't work from there, I tried the above).
      What am I doing wrong?

      So I have been reading on how to use OAuth2 Service accounts(https://developers.google.com/identity/protocols/OAuth2ServiceAccount) and ran into an issue with autoit I can not solve. To keep this short to communicate to the Google API I need to use a JSON Web signature containing
      {Base64url encoded header}.{Base64url encoded claim set}.

      The Header and claim set work fine but I do not know how to convert them to a byte array using autoit. I have looked around on the forums and website but have not found anything that seems to work. Here is my code.
      #include-once #include <Array.au3> #include <Constants.au3> #include <Debug.au3> #include <File.au3> #include "Json.au3" #include <Process.au3> #include <ProgressConstants.au3> #include <String.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include "WinHttp.au3" #include <UnixTime.au3> #include <StringConstants.au3> Global $UnixTime = _TimeGetStamp() $sJWTheader = '{"alg":"RS256","typ":"JWT"}' $sJWTclaimset = '{"iss":"Removed@forprivacy.com","scope":"https://www.googleapis.com/auth/spreadsheets","aud":"https://www.googleapis.com/oauth2/v4/token","exp":' & $UnixTime + 3600 & ',"iat":' & $UnixTime & '}' Local $taiData = DllStructCreate("BYTE[256]") Local $sText = _base64($sJWTheader)&'.'&_base64($sJWTclaimset) DllStructSetData($taiData, 1, StringToBinary($sText, 4)) Local $bvResult = DllStructGetData($taiData, 1) $sJWTSigature = $bvResult $sJWT = _base64($sJWTheader)&'.'&_base64($sJWTclaimset)&'.'&_base64($sJWTSigature) $POSTHeader = "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded" $hOpen = _WinHttpOpen() $hConnect = _WinHttpConnect($hOpen, "https://www.googleapis.com/") $sRead = _WinHttpSimpleSSLRequest($hConnect, "POST", "oauth2/v4/token", Default, "grant_type=urn%3Aietf%3Aparams%3Aoauth%3Agrant-type%3Ajwt-bearer&assertion=" & $sJWT) _WinHttpCloseHandle($hConnect) _WinHttpCloseHandle($hOpen) ConsoleWrite($sRead & @LF) The whole bytes thing is beyond with what I know about auotit. I can't tell what I need to fix.
