Python client library to quickly get started with the various [Watson Developer Cloud][wdc] services.

## Installation

To install, use `pip` or `easy_install`:

```bash
$ pip install --upgrade watson-developer-cloud
```
or
```bash
$ easy_install --upgrade watson-developer-cloud
```

## Examples
The [examples][examples] folder has basic and advanced examples.

## Getting the Service Credentials
Service credentials are required to access the APIs.

If you run your app in Bluemix, you don't need to specify the username and password. In that case, the SDK uses the `VCAP_SERVICES` environment variable to load the credentials.

To run locally or outside of Bluemix you need the `username` and `password` credentials for each service. (Service credentials are different from your Bluemix account email and password.)

To create an instance of the service:

1. Log in to [Bluemix][bluemix].
1. Create an instance of the service:
1. In the Bluemix **Catalog**, select the Watson service you want to use. For example, select the Conversation service.
1. Type a unique name for the service instance in the **Service name** field. For example, type `my-service-name`. Leave the default values for the other options.
1. Click **Create**.

To get your service credentials:

Copy your credentials from the **Service details** page. To find the the Service details page for an existing service, navigate to your Bluemix dashboard and click the service name.

1. On the **Service Details** page, click **Service Credentials**, and then **View credentials**.
1. Copy `username` and `password`.

## Python Version
Tested on: Python from 2.7 to 3.6.
Python 2.6 is partially supported but generates InsecurePlatformWarnings (and other warnings), which can be ignored.
