Customer.io Python bindings

This module has been tested with Python 2.6, 2.7 and 3.4

Installing

pip install customerio

Usage

from customerio import CustomerIO
cio = CustomerIO(site_id, api_key)
cio.identify(id=5, email='customer@example.com', name='Bob', plan='premium')
cio.track(customer_id=5, name='purchased')
cio.track(customer_id=5, name='purchased', price=23.45)

Instantiating customer.io object

from customerio import CustomerIO
cio = CustomerIO(site_id, api_key)

Create or update a Customer.io customer profile

cio.identify(id=5, email='customer@example.com', name='Bob', plan='premium')

Only the id field is used to identify the customer here. Using an existing id with a different email (or any other attribute) will update/overwrite any pre-existing values for that field.

You can pass any keyword arguments to the identify and track methods. These kwargs will be converted to custom attributes.

See original REST documentation here

Track a custom event

cio.track(customer_id=5, name='purchased')

Track a custom event with custom data values

cio.track(customer_id=5, name='purchased', price=23.45, product="widget")

You can pass any keyword arguments to the identify and track methods. These kwargs will be converted to custom attributes.

See original REST documentation here

Backfill a custom event

from datetime import datetime, timedelta

customer_id = 5
event_type = "purchase"

# Backfill an event one hour in the past
event_date = datetime.utcnow() - timedelta(hours=1)
cio.backfill(customer_id, event_type, event_date, price=23.45, coupon=True)

event_timestamp = 1408482633
cio.backfill(customer_id, event_type, event_timestamp, price=34.56)

event_timestamp = "1408482680"
cio.backfill(customer_id, event_type, event_timestamp, price=45.67)

Event timestamp may be passed as a datetime.datetime object, an integer or a string UNIX timestamp

Keyword arguments to backfill work the same as a call to cio.track.

See original REST documentation here

Delete a customer profile

cio.delete(customer_id=5)

Deletes the customer profile for a specified customer.

This method returns nothing. Attempts to delete non-existent customers will not raise any errors.

See original REST documentation here

You can pass any keyword arguments to the identify and track methods. These kwargs will be converted to custom attributes.

Add a device

cio.add_device(customer_id=1, device_id='device_hash', platform='ios')

Adds the device device_hash with the platform ios for a specified customer.

Supported platforms are ios and android.

Optionally, last_used can be passed in to specify the last touch of the device. Otherwise, this attribute is set by the API.

cio.add_device(customer_id=1, device_id='device_hash', platform='ios', last_used=1514764800})

This method returns nothing.

Delete a device

cio.delete_device(customer_id=1, device_id='device_hash')

Deletes the specified device for a specified customer.

This method returns nothing. Attempts to delete non-existent devices will not raise any errors.

Suppress a customer

cio.suppress(customer_id=1)

Suppresses the specified customer. They will be deleted from Customer.io, and we will ignore all further attempts to identify or track activity for the suppressed customer ID

See REST documentation here

Unsuppress a customer

cio.unsuppress(customer_id=1)

Unsuppresses the specified customer. We will remove the supplied id from our suppression list and start accepting new identify and track calls for the customer as normal

See REST documentation here

Running tests

Changes to the library can be tested by running make test from the parent directory.
