Xero API pyXero and Anaconda Python

Personal TL;DR notes on getting this to work, not a tutorial.

Download Install Anaconda
– At the time of writing it didn’t create Windows Shortcuts, fix this with openning cmd as admin

‘c:\Anaconda2\scripts\conda.exe install menuinst’

Agree to Updates

‘c:\Anaconda2\scripts\conda.exe install -f console_shortcut ipython ipython-notebook ipython-qtconsole launcher spyder’

Agree to updates.

Now there should be shortcuts in:

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Anaconda2 (64-bit)

Now onto Xero

  • git clone https://github.com/freakboy3742/pyxero.git
  • Open up Anaconda Prompt (Anaconda2x64)
  • cd into folder with git of pyxero
  • use command: python setup.py install
  • pip uninstall oauthlib
  • pip install oauthlib==0.7.2

The last two commands fix the error: ImportError: No module named jwt.algorithms

Again these are personal notes, not a full blown tutorial.
