httplib2==0.9 oauth2==1.5.211 urllib3==1.10 httplib2.system-ca-certs-locater==0.1.1
pip install python-odesk
All the dependencies will be automatically installed as well.
SSL Certificates Note
We recomend to install a package
httplib2.system_ca_certs_locater (it is installed by default during
pip install pbr httplib2.system_ca_certs_locater
It will force
httplib2 to use the OS's certificates file.
If you want to use your own certificates, put the following code during initialization:
os.environ['HTTPLIB_CA_CERTS_PATH'] = '/path/to/my/ca_certs.txt'
First, you need to create API key for authorization here: https://www.odesk.com/services/api/keys
Installing Ipython interactive shell is very useful for playing
with the API, it has autocomplete, history, displays docstring help if you add '?'
to the end of variable/function/class/method and many other nice things.
So we greatly encourage you to install it:
pip install ipython
To get started, look at the docs http://odesk.github.io/python-odesk/how_to.html
and also look at the
examples/ folder to see examples how to
obtain oauth access tokens for web application and desktop application.
