Can someone point me to examples that show how a quickbase/db can be accessed from the command line/using python -?  We would like to access, add, delete, change records and create reports - and in addition to the GUI provided, do such using CLI tools and python (saw pybase on github, am having some difficulty with it - unless someone can provide a complete example -?)

Use the API --> https://help.quickbase.com/api-guide/index.html

I use node.js so I'm not familiar with Python, but it all essentially works the same.

See this library:

http://docs.python-requests.org/en/master/

This should allow you to do whatever your heart desires.

Hope this helps,

I'm all set on getting Python to work with the API, but if you have any suggestions or resources I'd love to hear about them and/or share what I've done

Hi,

Been using pyqb (https://github.com/sjmh/pyqb) for all of my python work w/the Quickbase API. It's not complete, but easy to fork and add to.
