Project description

# todoist-python - The official Todoist Python API library

## How to get started


Clone the repo and enter it:

$ git clone ; cd todoist-python

Create an environment:

$ virtualenv –system-site-packages -p /usr/bin/python2.7 Env

Activate the environment:

$ source Env/bin/activate

Install the library along with all the dependencies (so far we depend on awesome requests only):

$ pip install -e .

If you want to build the documentation as well, install some extra packages:

$ pip install -r doc/requirements.txt

Build the documentation:

$ (cd doc ; make html)

Read the built documentation by opening:


Import the library and try some commands:

`python $ python >>> import todoist >>> api = todoist.TodoistAPI('0123456789abcdef0123456789abcdef01234567') >>> api.sync() >>> full_name = api.state['user']['full_name'] >>> print(full_name) John Doe >>> for project in api.state['projects']: ...     print(project['name']) ...

## Testing the library

We have a set of tests to ensure we support Python both 2.x and 3.x. To test it out, please make sure you have python 2.7 and python 3.4 installed in you system. Then install “tox” either globally (preferred way) or in your local environment.

# apt-get install python-tox


$ pip install tox

Then just type

$ tox
