Using Oauth library in python

I am running a twitter api in python using oauth library. I have included the code below. When I run the code "twtest.py", I get the error `'module' object has no attribute 'OAuthConsumer'.

1.twtest.py

import urllib
from twurl import augment

print '* Calling Twitter...'
url = augment('https://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/user_timeline.json',
{'screen_name': 'saurabhpathak20', 'count': '2'} )
print url
connection = urllib.urlopen(url)
data = connection.read()
print data
headers = connection.info().dict
print headers


2.twurl.py

import urllib
import oauth
import hidden

def augment(url, parameters) :
secrets = hidden.oauth()
consumer = oauth.OAuthConsumer(secrets['consumer_key'], secrets['consumer_secret'])
token = oauth.OAuthToken(secrets['token_key'],secrets['token_secret'])

oauth_request = oauth.OAuthRequest.from_consumer_and_token(consumer,
token=token, http_method='GET', http_url=url, parameters=parameters)
oauth_request.sign_request(oauth.OAuthSignatureMethod_HMAC_SHA1(), consumer, token)
return oauth_request.to_url()


def test_me() :
print '* Calling Twitter...'
url = augment('https://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/user_timeline.json',
{'screen_name': 'saurabhpathak20', 'count': '2'} )
print url
connection = urllib.urlopen(url)
data = connection.read()
print data
headers = connection.info().dict
print headers


3.hidden.py

def oauth() :
return { "consumer_key" : "pj......U8fFRyjV",
"consumer_secret" : "zty3njhO4IRl........ELh1YC1j1rX",
"token_key" : "515167047-xaRfSm7.......wBBOrjNd61anI55D",
"token_secret" : " y7ZCBDf6d..........x1eJV8mHRnL8hh" }


Kindly help me to understand what is wrong in the code.
Thanks.

Answer

You need to import oauth from oauth instead of import oauth

>>> from oauth import oauth
>>> oauth.OAuthConsumer
<class 'oauth.oauth.OAuthConsumer'>
