Installation from PyPI

$ pip install eventbrite

If you need to, you can also use easy_install:

$ easy_install eventbrite

Usage

The Eventbrite Python SDK makes it trivial to interact with the Eventbrite API:

>>> from eventbrite import Eventbrite
>>> eventbrite = Eventbrite('my-oauth-token')
>>> user = eventbrite.get_user()  # Not passing an argument returns yourself
>>> user['id']
1234567890
>>> user['name']

You can also specify API endpoints manually:

>>> user = eventbrite.get('/users/me')
>>> user['id']
1234567890
>>> user['name']
Daniel Roy Greenfeld

Expansions can be included in a returned GET resource by simply adding the expand keyword to the calling method:

>>> event = eventbrite.get_event('my-event-id')
>>> 'ticket_classes' in evbobject
False
>>> event = eventbrite.get_event('my-event-id', expand='ticket_classes')
>>> 'ticket_classes' in evbobject
True

Usage with Frameworks

When using Flask, you can convert incoming webhook requests into Eventbrite API objects using the webhook_to_object() method:

@app.route('/webhook', methods=['POST'])
def webhook():


    # Use the API client to convert from a webhook to an API object
    api_object = eventbrite.webhook_to_object(request)

    # Process the API object
    if api_object.type == 'User':
        do_user_process(api_object)

    if api_object.type == 'Event':
        do_event_process(api_object)

    return ""

Versioning

Because this client interacts with Eventbrite's third API (a.k.a. APIv3), we are tying our release numbers against it in a modified-semantic system:

  • 3.x.x where '3' matches the API version. This will not change until Eventbrite releases a new API version.
  • x.0.x where '0' is increased any time there is a significant change to the API that possibly breaks backwards compatibility
  • x.x.1 where '1' is increased on any release that does not break backwards comptability (small, new features, enhancements, bugfixes)
