Create custom objects from outside of salesforce


Is it possible to create a new object from outside of salesforce? The little bit of research i had done suggests MetaData API should be the way to go?

Any other thoughts If somebody has done something like this using python, could the code be shared

You can do this using Eclipse with the Salesforce plugin. You can copy an existing object, modify it, then upload the new object to Salesforce. Objects are defined using XML so they are human readable.

You are correct, the metadata API will allow this ( The IDE uses this this under the hood to carry out it's operations).

You will need the Metadata API enabled in your org for the user you are logging in as however.
