A Trivial Demo
This code is explained thoroughly in the documentation. It fetches jacks first tweet.
import brittle_wit as bw from brittle_wit.executors import debug_blocking_request from brittle_wit import rest_api APP_CRED = bw.AppCredentials.load_from_env() CLIENT_CRED = bw.ClientCredentials.load_from_env() req = rest_api.statuses.lookup(id=20) resp = debug_blocking_request(APP_CRED, CLIENT_CRED, req) jacks_first_tweet = resp.json() print(jacks_first_tweet)
