Hullo!

I'm a very big fan of Meraki, I've made implementations of MX, MR and MS.

I'm here to learn from all of you and specialize in API dev

Kind of a big deal

Re: Hullo!

Welcome to the community!

 

My advice to learn the API would be:

  • Start out with postman so you get a feel for how to use the endpoints, what information you can get and what information you need to provide. This should help you out: https://developer.cisco.com/meraki/build/meraki-postman-collection-getting-started/
  • After that, I'd recommend to look into pycharm and start doing the same things you've been doing in postman with Python. Here's a few of the steps to get going:
    Create a new projectCreate a new projectGive it a nameGive it a namePyCharm will prepare everything for youPyCharm will prepare everything for youGo to the project settings to add the Meraki libraryGo to the project settings to add the Meraki libraryClick the little plusClick the little plusFind the Meraki module and install itFind the Meraki module and install itAfter installing it it'll look like thisAfter installing it it'll look like thisCreate a python fileCreate a python fileTo get started with the code have a look at http://meraki.io/api.
