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

dir(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.
