I apologise for what must be a very noob question but I'm brand new to WP and not a pro developer so a lot of this stuff is difficult for me.
I simply want to get API access to my user's data.
I have browsed through https://developer.wordpress.org/rest-api/reference/users/#retrieve-a-user-2 but I don't speak that language. I do not know what to do with the info they are giving me.
I have tried https://github.com/derwentx/wp-api-python but I am failing at the first hurdle. I tried using the "Wordpress API with Basic authentication' method and I get the error: "missing 2 required positional arguments: 'consumer_key' and 'consumer_secret' " even though I have Basic authentication plugin installed so (I understand) I should not need this data.
But I tried to see how to get my consumer key and consumer secret, and I CAN'T figure it out. How do I get this data?
Or is there some other approach?
