1. Install

The CLI is written in Python 3 and is distributed as package on PyPI and can be installed with pip.

pip3 install didimo-cli
2. Configure with your API Key

Create a new configuration and input your API Key. If you do not have an API Key, please refer to Register an application).

didimo init <configuration name>

After setting up the CLI, you can check your account with:

didimo account
3. Create a didimo

Now that the CLI is configured, let's create a didimo based on a photo.

didimo new photo <path to the photo>

The CLI waits for the didimo to be created and downloads the result in a zip file.

You can list your didimos with:

Your didimo will be stored on your account and available for download from the servers, which is handled automatically by the scripts in the SDK at runtime.
