Does Python work with QuickBooks SDK?

My guess is that it would, but I can find no mention of python in the
intuit developers site. I can find some references to PHP and Perl,
but no Python.

I looks to me like Intuit develops have a strong preference for visual-
basic, then c/c++, then delphi.

I find it just a little bit surprising, since Python does work
with .Net and all.

I'm not seeing a Python wrapper for the SDK, but it looks like you can
access it with COM. This thread talks a little about doing just that:

To learn more about Python and how to work with COM, check this site

I hope that helps you out.

I've been using the QuickBooks SDK with Python for years. There was
an example somewhere on Intuit's site to get you started. I just
built off of that. But now I can't locate that sample anywhere!

Basically you just access it via the COM interface. Use the Python
win32 extentions. Email me and I can probably help you more.

Thanks to Greg and Mike.

I am not looking for specifics right now. I was just wondering if
there was a practical way to do use python to integrate with intuit
apps.

Apparently, there is.
