iFormBuilder API Wrapper

Project description


The IFB-Wrapper is an open-source project to simplify and standardize integrations with the iFormBuilder software. Written in Python, IFB-Wrapper allows you to rapidly begin creating integrations without the headache of learning the ins and outs of API authentication and structure.


To install the ifb-wrapper ensure you have Python3+ installed. Download using pip install ifb-wrapper.

Getting Started

To start a new project, begin by importing the library:

from ifb import IFB

To create an API object, pass the server name, client id, and client secret to IFB()

from ifb import IFB

api = IFB("","**********","**********")

That's it! The IFB object requires the credentials necessary to request an access token. For more information on creating an iFormBuilder API App please visit:
