I am new to the SharePoint REST API and could use some guidance.

 

The setup is as follows: I am running an externally hosted Python script that needs to be able to grab files from an On-Premise SharePoint server; however, I do not know how to do so. I do not want to have to use any Add-ins and this needs to work without any user input. I understand that this will require some level of authentication, but I do not know how that is supposed to be set up.

 

Is this possible, and if so how would I go about accomplishing this?
