Now you can use DeliciousAPI on Python already!!! Just go to Michael’s web page then copy the demo code to a txt file, say test.py. Then go to the folder containing the file and run it from the terminal by typing “python test.py”. For more detail about how to install the API on Windows7, please refer to my previous post.
