:alt: Maintainability

Bexio API Python Client. It works as a standalone lib in python, but needs
additional work to get it started. There is a Django integration, that works
out of the box, once you set it up properly as described later. If you wish to
use it with Python alone, you can take a look at the Django integration. It
shows how you can use it with python alone.


* API connection to your Bexio instance
* Django integration
* Creation & Auto-renewal of access token


The full documentation is at


Install Bexio API Python Client::

pip install bexio-api-python-client

If you are using anything other than Django with this module, you need to
write some more code to authenticate and use the API. Check out the Django
parts of the module to see how it can be done.

Django Integration

You can use the API directly with Django. There are URLs, Views and other
helpers to integrate the API into your Django project.

Add it to your :code:`INSTALLED_APPS`:

.. code-block:: python


Add Bexio API Python Client's URL patterns to your main :code:``:

.. code-block:: python

from bexiopy import urls as bexiopy_urls

urlpatterns = [
url(r'bexiopy/', include('bexiopy.urls', namespace='bexiopy')),

Start your server and visit the homepage (e.g. :code:`localhost:8000`).
You should see a navigation bar at the top where you can click on "Authenticate"
to create your token. Afterwards, you should see some data on the front page,
if you have any data in your Bexio instance.


If you use docker, you can configure a volume to store the token:


.. code-block:: yaml

# docker-compose.yml
bexio_token: {}

- bexio_token:/app/secrets

# app/Dockerfile
RUN mkdir /app/secrets

Basic Usage

See docs for basic usage:

You can also use helper functions, so you don't need to create the :code:`call` every time (see docs).
These helper functions are added over time, but you can use the API fully, with the
`call` function. The helper methods only offer nicer ways to query the API (e.g. :code:`Bexiopy().contacts.get(2)`).
The progress of the helper functions are documented below under "Progress".


Configure the minimum :code:`` (check docs for all options):

.. code-block:: python

BEXIO_APPLICATION_SCOPES = ['my_scope_1', 'my_scope_2']

Start the server and go to :code:`/bexiopy/auth/` and authenticate with Bexio.

**i18n URLs**

If you have internationalized URLs, then make sure you place the Bexiopy
url outside the internationalized ones, so it can be called without any
language code (:code:`/bexiopy/auth/` instead of :code:`/en/bexiopy/auth/`).

Running Tests

Does the code actually work?


source <YOURVIRTUALENV>/bin/activate
(myenv) $ pip install tox
