Python Tropo WebAPI Library Now Available in PyPI for Easy Installation

Posted on January 5, 2011 by Adam Kalsey

Python logoI’m pleased to announce that we’ve made it even easier for people to install the Tropo WebAPI library for python. (This lets you build apps that are hosted on your local system that communicate with Tropo for voice/SMS/IM/Twitter connectivity.)

Last night I uploaded the module to PyPI, the python package index, and as a result you can now simply type this command to install the latest version:

easy_install tropo-webapi-python

This assumes, of course, that you have the setuptools package installed, but that should be available in most python installations. (And if you don’t have it, you can get setuptools from PyPI and follow the instructions there.)

Alternatively, if you prefer to use the newer pip replacement for easy_install, you can type this command:

pip install tropo-webapi-python

(And pip is also available from PyPI if you want to trying using it versus easy_install.)

If you want to see the PyPI page describing the Tropo WebAPI library, it is at:

http://pypi.python.org/pypi/tropo-webapi-python/0.1.0

We’ll make sure to upload a new version after there have been any real changes to the python library. The definitive source will of course always be at the tropo-webapi-python Github page, but we’ll aim to make sure that the PyPI version tracks closely.

Many thanks to developer Randall Degges who raised an issue on Github asking if we could upload the library to PyPI. Thanks, Randall, for the suggestion!

P.S. Feel free to raise issues on Github with your suggestions (or fixes), too!

  1. Setting Up a PyPI Account – And Uploading the Tropo WebAPI Library…

    It’s funny… I’ve been writing small python programs for 10 or 15 years now (makefaq being perhaps the one most widely used), but in all that time, I had never set myself up with a PyPI account. PyPI, for those not in the python world,…
