Files.com Python Client

The Files.com Python client library provides convenient access to the Files.com API from applications written in the Python language.

Installation

To install the package:

pip3 install Files.com

Requirements

  • Python 3.5+
  • requests

Usage

import files_sdk

Authentication

There are multiple ways to authenticate to the API.

Global API Key

You can set an API key globally, like this:

files_sdk.set_api_key("my-key")

Per-Request API Key

Or, you can pass an API key per-request, in the Options dictionary at the end of every method. Like this:

files_sdk.group.list({}, {"api_key": "my-key"})

That key will automatically be used for any followup actions that occur on models returned from the API.

User Session

Or, you can open a user session by calling files_sdk.session.create

session = files_sdk.session.create({"username": "uname", "password": "pwd"})

Then use it as follows:

files_sdk.group.list({}, {"session": session})

Or use if for all subsequent API calls globally like this:

session = files_sdk.session.create({"username": "uname", "password": "pwd"})
files_sdk.set_session(session)

Setting Global Options

You can set the following global options directly on the files_sdk module:

  • files_sdk.open_timeout - open timeout in seconds (default: 30)
  • files_sdk.read_timeout - read timeout in seconds (default: 80)
  • files_sdk.initial_network_retry_delay - initial retry delay in seconds (default: 0.5)
  • files_sdk.max_network_retries - max retries (default: 3)
  • files_sdk.max_network_retry_delay - max retry delay in seconds (default: 2)
  • files_sdk.base_url - to point this client at an on-premise installation of Files.com, set its URL here.
  • files_sdk.console_log_level - set to None, info, or debug, this enables printing of messages to stderr in addition to normal logging

Log Level

This SDK utilizes the standard Python logging framework. It will respect the global log level and you can set the module specific log level and other logging settings by getting the logger object in the standard manner as shown below:

import logging

logging.getLogger("files_sdk")

File Operations

This SDK allows both file based transfer and data based transfer. Please see the examples below.

File Download

The second parameter is optional and will simply use the remote filename by default.

files_sdk.file.download_file("/remote.txt", "local.txt")

File Upload

The second parameter is optional and will simply use the local filename by default.

files_sdk.file.upload_file("local.txt", "/remote.txt")

List root folder

for f in files_sdk.folder.list_for("/").auto_paging_iter():
    print(f.type, f.path)

Writing a file example (string)

with files_sdk.file.open("foo.txt", 'wb') as f:
    f.write("contents")

Writing a file example (binary)

with files_sdk.file.open("foo.txt", 'wb') as f:
    f.write(b"contents")

Reading a file example (string)

with files_sdk.open("foo.txt", 'r') as f:
    print(f.read())

Reading a file example (binary)

with files_sdk.open("foo.txt", 'rb') as f:
    print(f.read())

List Responses and Cursor Paging

List responses for APIs with cursor support will return an iterable object which contains a single page of records. It has a built-in auto_paging_iter method to iterate through the pages, making the additional API calls as needed.

Iterating with with auto_paging_iter

list_obj = files_sdk.folder.list_for('/')

for f in list_obj.auto_paging_iter():
    print(f.type, f.path)

Iterating manually

list_obj = files_sdk.folder.list_for('/')

for f in list_obj:
    print(f.type, f.path)

while list_obj.has_next_page:
    list_obj.load_next_page()
    for f in list_obj:
        print(f.type, f.path)

Additional Object Documentation

Additional docs are available at https://developers.files.com/ and also in the docs/ subdirectory of this directory.

Pydoc Generated Documentation coming in the future

We hope to add Pydoc documentation to a future release.
