On Ubuntu (GNU/Linux), you will need to install httplib2 and openssl binding. Then you can download the compressed file, unzip it and use:
sudo apt-get install python-httplib2 python-m2crypto wget https://github.com/reingart/pyafipws/archive/master.zip unzip master.zip cd pyafipws-master sudo pip install -r requirements.txt
Note: M2Crypto is optional, the library will use OpenSSL directly (using subprocess)
You’ll need a digital certificate (.crt) and private key (.key) to authenticate (see certificate generation for more information and instructions). Provisionally, you can use author’s testing certificate/key:
wget https://www.sistemasagiles.com.ar/soft/pyafipws/reingart.zip unzip reingart.zip
You should configure rece.ini to set up paths and URLs if using other values than defaults.
Then, you could execute WSAA script to authenticate (getting Token and Sign) and WSFEv1 to process an electronic invoice:
python wsaa.py python wsfev1.py --prueba
With the last command, you should get the Electronic Autorization Code (CAE) for testing purposes (sample invoice data, do not use in production!).
Virtual environment (testing):
The following commands clone the repository, creates a virtualenv and install the packages there (including the latest versions of the dependencies) to avoid conflicts with other libraries:
sudo apt-get install python-dev swig python-virtualenv mercurial python-pip libssl-dev python-dulwich hg clone git+https://github.com/reingart/pyafipws.git --config extensions.hggit= cd pyafipws virtualenv venv source venv/bin/activate pip install -r requirements.txt
Note: For convenience, development is done using mercurial; You could use hg-git or git directly.
Dependency installation (development):
For SOAP webservices PySimpleSOAP is needed (spin-off of this library, inspired by the PHP SOAP extension):
hg clone git+https://github.com/pysimplesoap/pysimplesoap.git --config extensions.hggit= cd pysimplesoap hg up reingart python setup.py install
Use “stable” branch reingart (see requirements.txt for more information)
For PDF generation, you will need the PyFPDF (PHP’s FPDF library, python port):
hg clone git+https://github.com/reingart/pyfpdf.git --config extensions.hggit= cd pyfpdf python setup.py install
For the GUI app, you will need wxPython:
sudo apt-get install wxpython
PythonCard is being replaced by gui2py:
pip install gui2py
For the WEB app, you will need web2py.
On Windows, you can see available installers released for evaluation purposes on Download Releases
