⚡️ Usage

To use this SDK, you first need to sign up for a free Nylas developer account.

Then, follow our guide to setup your first app and get your API access keys.

Next, in your python script, import the APIClient class from the nylas package, and create a new instance of this class, passing the variables you gathered when you got your developer API keys. In the following example, replace CLIENT_ID, CLIENT_SECRET, and ACCESS_TOKEN with your values.

from nylas import APIClient

nylas = APIClient(

Now, you can use nylas to access full email, calendar, and contacts functionality. For example, here is how you would print the subject line for the most recent email message to the console.

message = nylas.messages.first()
