Announcing our Python SDK

Today, we’re pleased to announce the first release of our Python SDK.  This comes hot on the heels of our Android SDK, and is designed to make it much easier to get started with developing Python apps on the Mendeley API.

To get started, you can install the SDK from PyPI:

pip install mendeley

Full documentation can be found here.  We’ve also updated our two example Python apps to use the SDK, and you can find those linked from the documentation.

We’re planning to improve the SDK and introduce new functionality over the coming months.  If you want to check out the code, you can find it on GitHub, where pull requests are welcome.

We’re really keen to hear your feedback on this – send it through to
