I want to be able to interact with my own Google accounts from an IPython console using Python Google APIs. The main obstacle to this is the Oauth user authentication/authorization process, which requires a song and dance session with the browser every time you start a session. I want to eliminate this song and dance and be able to connect to my accounst completely from within the IPython console with some simple initialization call
I have asked general question regarding this problem on SO, which currently has a 100 pt bounty:
Since asking that question I have come to think that a headless could be the solution. However I am not familiar with headless browsers and web programing is not my strong suit to begin with. There is also a large variety of Python headless browsers. There are over a dozen libraries labeled as Python listed on https://github.com/dhamaniasad/HeadlessBrowsers .
