A simple wrapper for the Brandfolder API

Project description

The Official Python Brandfolder SDK

!!! Deprecation Warning
Functionality to list assets and attachments by organization (org.assets.fetch(...) and org.attachments.fetch(...)) will soon be deprecated. This will be a breaking change for all versions.

Clients wishing to fetch these resources for an entire organization should instead list all Brandfolders for that organization, and then iteratively fetch assets or attachments from each section within a Brandfolder.

See the API documention for listing assets and listing attachments for more information.

Install latest official build:

pip install brandfolder

Install from source:

git clone
cd sdk-python
python install


Interaction with the Brandfolder API via the Python SDK is client based. The first thing you need to do is create a client:

client = Client(api_key=API_KEY)

A valid Brandfolder API key is required for all actions. Find yours at

Methods for interacting with resource containers from Brandfolder:

container.fetch(): Returns a list from the first page of available objects of the provided type. (e.g. client.brandfolders.fetch())

container.fetch_by_id(<resource_id>): Returns the object associated with the provided type and id. (e.g. client.brandfolders.fetch_by_id(<bf_id>))

Methods for interacting with resource objects from Brandfolder:

obj.get(<attribute>): Returns the provided attribute value of the associated object. (e.g. asset.get('name'))

obj.refresh(): Updates local object attributes with what currently exists in Brandfolder.

obj.set(<updates>): Prepares to apply provided updates to the associated object. (e.g. asset.set(name='New Name'))

obj.update(): Pushes updates to the associated object to Brandfolder.

obj.delete(): Deletes the associated object in Brandfolder.

brandfolder_obj.create_section(): Creates section in the associated Brandfolder.

brandfolder_obj.create_collection(): Creates collection in the associated Brandfolder.

brandfolder_obj.create_asset(attachments_data, section_key, **attributes): Creates asset in the associated Brandfolder. This is also available for a Collection. Returns assets in the associated Brandfolder that match the query parameters provided.

Fields on resource objects: The id of the associated object.

obj.attributes: The attributes of the provided object.

obj.relationships: Information about the resources related to the provided object, if explicitly included in the API call.

obj.included: The included resources that are related to the provided object, if explicitly included in the API call.

obj.updates: A dict of staged updates to the associated object that are ready to apply.


See the complete API documentation at for more examples.

Get all available organizations:

orgs = client.organizations.fetch()

Get a specific Brandfolder:

bf = client.brandfolders.fetch_by_id(<brandfolder_id>)

Updating an asset:

asset = bf.assets.fetch_by_id(<asset_id>)  # Grab an asset
asset.set(name='New Name')
asset.update()  # Pushes new attributes to Brandfolder

Search for assets within a Brandfolder:

# Will return results with a name containing "Sample" of filetype ".png"

bf = client.brandfolders.fetch_by_id(<brandfolder_id>)
search_parameters = ['name:sample', 'extension:png']
results =
