#sendypy nlshield

Simple module to interface with the Sendy API (

Version: 5.2.5

Project Links: Issues - Mailing List - Contributing

Author: Peter Sanchez ( - (


  • It was written for Python 3.6+
  • Depends on the requests module


  • Version 4.0.5 we're changing the version to match the version of Sendy that this is most recently updated for. When Sendy introduces changes that require a lib update, we will update the version to match the Sendy version.
  • Version 0.2 now requires api_key varaible for all API calls. This is a required change to the functionality of Sendy as of version 4.0.4. This is a potentially breaking code change. Please update your code to always provide the API key before upgrading to sendypy v0.2.
  • Version 0.1.3b adds the new "title" variable to the create_campaign API call. It effects the default ordering of variables in the call. If you're upgrading from a previous version please ensure that you account for the new ordering of variables. This new variable was added in Sendy v2.1.2.6
