I'm new to the python api and wanted to do some exploring to see if it would be useful for me.  I downloaded everything through conda and just started playing around with the samples ESRI provided.  However I cannot even get the samples to work.  Is there a simple issue i am missing? #python api for arcgis

You were following the instructions etcetera in the documentation link?

From your python ide you should be able to import ArcGIS at least

import arcgis

Out[3]: ['GIS', 'SpatialDataFrame', '__all__', '__builtins__', '__cached__', '__doc__',
'__file__', '__loader__', '__name__', '__package__', '__path__', '__spec__',
,...SNIP...'plan_routes', 'raster', 'realtime', 'schematics', 'summarize_nearby',
 'summarize_within', 'trace_downstream']

Thank you Dan. That seems to have solved the problem. I didn’t have the archive open in my terminal application.
