Great script. Took me some hours to get that PIN is the variable "oauth_verifier" in the url encoding callback after accept permission in the tumblr account.

As a suggestion to safe time in future to people, maybe a print explaining what is PIN will be useful.

Is this still working...? I am getitng 404. I've gone through the auth process, received my access tokens, and configured the following:

CONSUMER_KEY = ''
CONSUMER_SECRET = ''
OAUTH_TOKEN = ''
OAUTH_TOKEN_SECRET = ''
DIR = ''
BLOG = ''

On execution, I receive the following:
('Received error code: ', 404)
Done!

Any help?

Thanks

Doh! I figured it out... I had everything configured correctly, except the BLOG variable. Tumblr expects the full base-hostname, and I was just using the blog's name. Simple oversight. Script works beautifully. Thank you!!

Script doesn't work. I get a 404 error code while posting to tumblr. Have checked all the necessary credentials multiple times.

I too am getting that 404 error code.

Are these the correct format:

DIR = 'C:/Users/MyUserName/scripts/Python-Tumblr-Tests'
FILE_MASK = '*.jpg'
BLOG = 'http://myblog.tumblr.com'

awesome! Thanks for this. Took my newb mind a couple of hours to figure it out.

  1. python auth.py
  2. go to url
  3. allow in tumblr
  4. y (yes authenticated)
  5. copy url you are returned to: ex google.com/?oauth_token=927839871293871928hikjb copy this long key
  6. PIN = number copied from step 5
  7. you get your oath token and secret

now fill it all up in photo2tumblr.py and your goodie good to go

I've had the same problems as you (404). It's fully functional now !

The problems is with BLOG variable.

It's just the blog host name not the URL !

WRONG: http://josenaves.tumblr.com/
RIGHT: josenaves.tumblr.com

Here's my 2 cents. (Ubuntu)

  1. Register application with tumblr. Get Consumer Key and Secret Key. http://www.tumblr.com/oauth/apps
  2. Edit consumer_key and consumer_secret in auth.py
  3. Install python, python-oauth2, python-poster
  4. python auth.py
  5. go to url
  6. 'allow' in tumblr web page
  7. y (yes authenticated)
  8. copy url you are returned to: ex google.com/?oauth_token=927839871293871928hikjb copy this long key (as PIN)
  9. PIN = number copied from step 8
  10. Edit photo2tumblr.py
    CONSUMER_KEY = ''
    CONSUMER_SECRET = ''
    OAUTH_TOKEN = ''
    OAUTH_TOKEN_SECRET = ''
    DIR = 'dir/with/pictures'
    FILE_MASK = '*.jpg'
    BLOG = 'blog here'
  11. Careful about BLOG
    WRONG: http://josenaves.tumblr.com/
    RIGHT: josenaves.tumblr.com
  12. python photo2tumblr.py

Thanks for this great script! Following gosharplite's steps, I got it working for single images. But how do you extend it so it posts multiple images in a single post? I've tried a few things which haven't worked :p

@windmillium

Step number 8 above should use the oauth_verifier param not the oauth_token, other than that it works.

I have some problem with this script.
i copied two pictures to a folder and starting script:

python photo2tumblr.py
106408893386
106408894521
Done!

So, both pictures are deleted at the picturefolder, but there is no posting at my tumblr blog.
Any idea?

Here's what I did to make this work for photosets (multiple photos for one post):

What is 'PIN' supposed to be?

$ python auth.py
Request Token:
    - oauth_token        = HNeepB644EtQcUTWGsSlhYZgQ0Z8Hg8kkI0XNqDR4x8Qyjl0Qa
    - oauth_token_secret = <secret key>

Go to the following link in your browser:
http://www.tumblr.com/oauth/authorize?oauth_token=HNeepB644EtQcUTWGsSlhYZgQ0Z8Hg8kkI0XNqDR4x8Qyjl0Qa

Have you authorized me? (y/n) y
What is the PIN?

My callback URL is just tumblr.com as I don't have a site for a test like this.
