Assetic Integration API

Project description


assetic is an SDK wrapper for the Assetic REST APIs

Installation (recommended)

To install assetic run:

pip install assetic

Manual Installation

Can be manually but dependencies will also require installing Can optionally use a zip file available from Assetic if pip cannot be used

Quick Start

Once you have installed everything, include the following in your python script:

import assetic

#create an instance and authenticate

asseticsdk = assetic.asseticSDK()

From there you can use the APIs:

assetapi = assetic.AssetApi()


Also refer to the Assetic Knowledge Base if you have a login:
