## Fastly Python Client
fastly-py is available through `pip` as the [fastly](https://pypi.python.org/pypi/fastly) package
There are three simple scripts provided in `/bin` that can be used for various stand-alone purge operations.
api = fastly.API()
### Running Tests
$ python -m test.api_test
#### Set up environment configuration
We use Python's [os](https://docs.python.org/2/library/os.html) and a `.env` file to manage environment variables in development and test environments. See the list of required environment variables in the `.env.example` file in the root directory.
To optionally set values for testing, make a copy of `.env.example` and name it `.env`.
cp .env.example .env
# If using direnv, you can just use it as a `.envrc` file and not have to `source` it manually.
# Using your favorite editor, update the values of the environment variables in `.env` and then
