Proper usage of constants.py


(Jon Renaut) #1

I have a Python/Django application using python-dwolla 2.2 and I’m confused on constants.access_token. Is the expected workflow to set this with the current user’s token each time I hit the Dwolla API? Or should I always pass the alternate_token kwarg? Neither of these seems like a great solution, so I think maybe I’m missing something.

@jrenaut, I’d recommend passing the token on a per API request basis by using the alternate_token as shown here. If your app deals with many expiring access tokens that you’re probably storing then this may be the better solution.

Ok, thanks.

Just noting that it’s alternate_token, not alternative_token, for anyone who looks to this for reference.

Whoops, apparently can’t type today. Good catch! Just made the edit :slight_smile:
