We downloaded as script from this location: https://survey123.maps.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=c8411764ea614f208ba2e5a933a068b8 ; it's a data download utility.  At any rate it uses a module I'm not familiar with called 'ago':

import ago
import urllib
import zipfile
import json

I tried to use the ArcGIS Pro package installer and it acts like it installs, but when I try to import I'm told it dosen't exist.  So I tried an anaconda install from the command line and it can't find the package in the in the typical channels.

When I look for it on the Anaconda cloud, it sends me to: Bitbucket   where it is described as 'human readable time deltas' which I can't see how that's going to generate  a token as the script itself has it doing: 

agol_helper = ago.AGOLHelper(portal_url)
print ("...Authenticating against your Portal ")
# login
agol_helper.login(credentials['userName'], credentials['passWord'])

Anybody know what this script is and how to make it work?  Where do I find the ago  we really need?

That should just about do it....

ago · PyPI 

You can always try a pip install

Look at line 52-54 in the script and you will see this note:

# initialize the portal helper class
# ago.py is part of the 10.3 python install
agol_helper = ago.AGOLHelper(portal_url)
‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍

I was able to import it using desktop 10.5.  So the script is a desktop thing using Python 2.7, apparently.

Well if it agol then there is ago.

But if it about time, then there is ago and other options.

Just figure out which 'ago' you need  but keep the other one handy

It's the ago as in AGO  L ...  One of my office mates was confronted with this; I'm strictly ArcGIS Pro, Python 3.x; he's got an install of ArcMap 10.5 (maybe 10.6).  We'll take a look at it together later today.

That should just about do it....

Randy Burton‌ - I see.  My office mate was using Spyder with python 3.x to review the script.  I'll have him spark up a 2.7 - idle on a screen share session and go from there.  Thanks!

I am curious if you were able to successfully import ago and run that script on a PC that didn't have ArcGIS for Desktop installed? I am trying to do that now. Any insight is appreciated. Thanks!
