new ftrack_api

Hi,

 

I've read on the migration and release notes page that there's a new API in beta. It seems to change things quite a bit, with session objects? Could you please elaborate a bit about that development? Basically I just want to make sure that our custom stuff continues to work when we get upgraded to 3.1 (currently on 3.0.29.4283)

 

It's hard to keep up with the api docs because I get lost a lot in there... the new ftrack_api package seems to follow a different version numbering scheme. And links from the release notes seem to end up on pages that I have a hard time finding again using the hierarchy on the left... :-)

Hi,

 

When upgrading to 3.1.x you'll need to upgrade your ftrack API to the latest version for your custom integration to work. You'll only need to update the package, you don't need to change anything in the script itself.

 

The API that currently is in beta is out new API which is completely rewritten from the ground up and will be released soon. The old API will still function and receive updates and you can choose to move over when it suits you. To read more about the new API visit this page: http://ftrack-python-api.rtd.ftrack.com/en/latest/

 

Regards,

Carl

Was about to play with the new api but not sure it works as it should? Maybe it's so early that we shouldn't be able to use it? Trying with a simple script with my user which have api rights.

import ftrack_apisession = ftrack_api.Session(	server_url='https://youerserver.ftrackapp.com',	api_key='1337-your-key',	api_user='youruser')projects = session.query('Project')for project in projects:    print project['name']

I just get this:
