To install out advent-of-code-py run out following command which install out advent-of-code-py cli and advent_of_code_py library.

pip install advent-of-code-py


poetry add advent-of-code-py


Initially for advent-of-code-py to work out it need session value or session ID which you can obtain out by viewing out cookie while visiting advent of code server. After collecting session cookie value you need to add those value in config using advent-of-code-py CLI

advent-of-code-py config add <session-name> <session-value>

Now you can import out library by using

import advent_of_code_py

After importing a library you can now use out either two decorator solve or submit decorator for a function of puzzle

For example:-

def puzzle_2018_3_1(input):
    # do some calculation
    return final_output

Now after decorating out function now you can call out function


After calling out function final_output value will be submitted out to Advent of Code server for 2018 year day 3 problem then returns out whether submitted answer was correct or not. If session value is not provided then solution will be submitted to all session value set out.

You can also use out advent-of-code-py builtin Initializer and runner to create out appropriate CLI tool for problem so problem can be run easily To set advent-of-code-py puzzle as CLI

def main_cli():
    initializer = advent_of_code_py.Initializer()
    # for example to run above function you can write out
    # add other function
    return initializer

Now you can set out main_cli as entry points and it will create out CLI with appropriate name and function which was added. So for example to run out function puzzle_2018_3_1() you have to run out command as entry-point-name run 2018-3-1 which will run appropriate function as well as submit as desired.
