# Aligning empty object with Bezier curve point using Python

I'm using a Bezier curve to generate a shape. Once I'm happy with the shape I process it with a script I wrote. Among other things it adds 2 empty objects: one at the start of the curve, one at the end of the curve.

I can't figure out how to rotate the empty objects so that they point in the same way the curve is pointing. Or how to align the empty's Y axis to the end point normal?

I access the end point data via curve.data.splines.active.bezier_points[pointId] but I couldn't find a way to get rotation or normal information.

Orientation that I'm trying to copy from curve end point to empty axis orientation.

End result I'm trying to achieve: the empty's Y axis is aligned with the direction of the last curve point.

Use the follow path constraint

When it comes to putting an object at either end of a curve, the follow path constraint, with fixed location, follow curve. An offset factor of 0 is one end, 1 the other.

context = bpy.context
bez = context.object
