Flask vs Django

If you are not using Kable as an Authentication Provider, then it does not matter if you use the Flask or Django SDK. The only differences between these two libraries is in the way headers are read for authentication purposes in authenticate.

Install dependencies

First, install the Kable Python Flask SDK using pip.

python3 -m pip install kable-python-flask

Implement Kable

from flask import Flask, jsonify
from kable_python_flask import Kable

app = Flask(__name__)

# Initialize Kable with fields found on your Company page in the dashboard
kable = Kable({
  'kable_client_id': '<YOUR_KABLE_CLIENT_ID>',
  'kable_client_secret': '<YOUR_KABLE_CLIENT_SECRET>',
  'base_url': '',
  'debug': True,

def get_record():
    # record data from within your API
    kable.record("yourcompanyuser_1234567890", { "userId": "xyz123" })
    return jsonify({ 'message': 'Data has been recorded by Kable!' })

# for using Kable as an authentication provider
def get_authenticate():
    return jsonify({ 'message': 'This request has been authenticated and recorded by Kable!' })
