BaseCRM Official API V2 library client for Python

Installation
------------

BaseCRM package can be installed either via pip or easy\_install:

.. code:: bash

$ pip install --upgrade basecrm

or

.. code:: bash

$ easy_install --upgrade basecrm

You can install from the source code as well. First clone the repo and
then execute:

.. code:: bash

$ python setup.py install

After installing, import ``basecrm`` package:

.. code:: python

import basecrm

Usage
-----

.. code:: python

import basecrm

# Then we instantiate a client (as shown below)

Build a client
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

**Using this api without authentication gives an error**

.. code:: python

client = basecrm.Client(access_token='<your_personal_access_token>')

Client Options
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The following options are available while instantiating a client:

- **access\_token**: Personal access token
- **base\_url**: Base url for the api
- **user\_agent**: Default user-agent for all requests
- **timeout**: Request timeout
- **verbose**: Verbose/debug mode

Architecture
~~~~~~~~~~~~

The library follows few architectural principles you should understand
before digging deeper. 1. Interactions with resources are done via
service objects. 2. Service objects are exposed as properties on client
instances. 3. Service objects expose resource-oriented actions. 4.
Actions return dictionaries that support attribute-style access, a la
JavaScript (thanks to Bunch and it's form Munch).

For example, to interact with deals API you will use
``basecrm.DealsService``, which you can get if you call:

.. code:: python

client = basecrm.Client(access_token='<your_personal_access_token>')
client.deals # basecrm.DealsService

To retrieve list of resources and use filtering you will call ``#list``
method:

.. code:: python

client = basecrm.Client(access_token='<your_personal_access_token>')
client.deals.list(organization_id=google.id, hot=True) # list(dict|Munch)

To find custom field by name and its value pass kwargs as an argument:

.. code:: python

client = basecrm.Client(access_token='<your_personal_access_token>')
client.deals.list(**{'custom_fields[name]': 1})

To find a resource by its unique identifier use ``#retrieve`` method:

.. code:: python

client = basecrm.Client(access_token='<your_personal_access_token>')
client.deals.retrieve(id=google.id)

When you'd like to create a resource, or update it's attributes you want
to use either ``#create`` or ``#update`` methods. For example if you
want to create a new deal you will call:

.. code:: python

client = basecrm.Client(access_token='<your_personal_access_token>')
deal = client.deals.create(name='Website redesign', contact_id=coffeeshop.id)

deal.value = Decimal("1000.99")
deal.currency = 'USD'

client.deals.update(deal.id, deal)

To destroy a resource use ``#destroy`` method:

.. code:: python

client = basecrm.Client(access_token='<your_personal_access_token>')
client.deals.destroy(coffeshopdeal.id)

There other non-CRUD operations supported as well. Please contact
corresponding service files for in-depth documentation.

Full example
~~~~~~~~~~~~

Create a new organization and after that change it's attributes
(website).

.. code:: python

client = basecrm.Client(access_token='<your_personal_access_token>')
lead = client.leads.create(organization_name='Design service company')

lead.website = 'http://www.designservices.com'
client.leads.update(lead.id, lead)

Error handling
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When you instantiate a client or make any request via service objects,
exceptions can be raised for multiple of reasons e.g. a network error,
an authentication error, an invalid param error etc.

Sample below shows how to properly handle exceptions:

.. code:: python

try:
# Instantiate a client.
client = basecrm.Client(access_token='<your_personal_access_token>')
lead = client.leads.create(organization_name='Design service company')
print lead
except basecrm.ConfigurationError as e:
# Invalid client configuration option
pass
except basecrm.ResourceError as e:
# Resource related error
print 'Http status = ' + e.http_status
print 'Request ID = ' + e.logref
for error in e.errors:
print 'field = ' + error.field
print 'code = ' + error.code
print 'message = ' + error.message
print 'details = ' + error.details
except basecrm.RequestError as e:
# Invalid query parameters, authentication error etc.
pass
except Exception as e:
# Other kind of exceptioni, probably connectivity related
pass

Sync API
---------------------

The following sample code shows how to perform a full synchronization flow using high-level wrapper.

First of all you need an instance of ``basecrm.Client``. High-level ``basecrm.Sync`` wrapper uses ``basecrm.SyncService`` to interact with the Sync API.
In addition to the client instance, you must provide a device’s UUID within ``device_uuid`` parameter. The device’s UUID must not change between synchronization sessions, otherwise the sync service will not recognize the device and will send all the data again.

.. code:: python

client = basecrmClient(access_token='<your_personal_access_token>')
sync = basecrm.Sync(client=client, device_uuid='<your_devices_uuid')<br>
Now all you have to do is to call ``fetch`` method and pass a lambda or function that you might use to store fetched data to a database.

.. code:: python

def synchronize(meta, data):
result = DAO.execute(table=meta.type,
statement=meta.sync.event_type,
properties=data)
return basecrm.Sync.ACK if result else basecrm.sync.NACK

sync.fetch(synchronize)

Notice that you must return either ``basecrm.Sync.ACK`` or ``basecrm.Sync.NACK``.

Resources and actions
---------------------

Documentation for every action can be found in ``basecrm/services.py``
file.

Account
~~~~~~~

.. code:: python

client = basecrm.Client(access_token='<your_personal_access_token>')
client.accounts # => basecrm.AccountsService

Actions:

* Retrieve account details - ``client.accounts.self``

AssociatedContact
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

.. code:: python

client = basecrm.Client(access_token='<your_personal_access_token>')
client.associated_contacts # => basecrm.AssociatedContactsService

Actions:

* Retrieve deal's associated contacts - ``client.associated_contacts.list``
* Create an associated contact - ``client.associated_contacts.create``
* Remove an associated contact - ``client.associated_contacts.destroy``

Contact
~~~~~~~

.. code:: python

client = basecrm.Client(access_token='<your_personal_access_token>')
client.contacts # => basecrm.ContactsService

Actions:

* Retrieve all contacts - ``client.contacts.list``
* Create a contact - ``client.contacts.create``
* Retrieve a single contact - ``client.contacts.retrieve``

**A note about deal value**

It is prefered to use decimal from string or directly string for deal values when creating or modifying a deal. This guarantees correct precision

.. code:: python

deal.value = Decimal("1000.99")
deal.value = "1000.00"

You should not be using floats or decimal constructed from floats as it may result in precision loss.

.. code:: python

deal.value = 1000.99
deal.value = decimal(1000.99)
