This is the GitHub repository for the Nylas Python SDK and this repo is primarily for anyone who wants to make contributions to the SDK or install it from source. If you are looking to use Python to access the Nylas Email, Calendar, or Contacts API you should refer to our official Python SDK Quickstart Guide.
Here are some resources to help you get started:
- Nylas SDK Tutorials
- Get Started with the Nylas Communications Platform
- Sign up for your Nylas developer account.
- Nylas API Reference
If you have a question about the Nylas Communications Platform, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to get help.
The Nylas Python SDK is available via pip:
pip install nylas
To install the SDK from source, clone this repo and run the install script.
git clone https://github.com/nylas/nylas-python.git && cd nylas-python python setup.py install
To use this SDK, you first need to sign up for a free Nylas developer account.
Then, follow our guide to setup your first app and get your API access keys.
Next, in your python script, import the
APIClient class from the
nylas package, and create a new instance of this class, passing the variables you gathered when you got your developer API keys. In the following example, replace
ACCESS_TOKEN with your values.
from nylas import APIClient nylas = APIClient( CLIENT_ID, CLIENT_SECRET, ACCESS_TOKEN )
Now, you can use
nylas to access full email, calendar, and contacts functionality. For example, here is how you would print the subject line for the most recent email message to the console.
message = nylas.messages.first() print(message.subject)
