Authentication

There is a file called prevedere_api.ini.example that can be used to store your API key. To use it, make a copy of the file, remove .example from the filename, and replace the API key in the file with your own. If you cannot find the file, initializing prevedere.Api() will produce the expected location of the .ini file. Once completed, you will no longer have to enter in your API key when creating a connection to the Prevedere API.

from prevedere import Api
p = Api()
