PrintNode API Client Python Library

This is a Python library to interact with PrintNode's remote printing API. This client allows you to access the API's functions for quick use in Python scripts.

Requirements

  • Python 2.x or 3.x
  • python-requests
  • python-future

Installation

This is installed as a module by executing python3 setup.py install with root permissions.

Getting Started

The default constructor for the Library is a Gateway, which is constructed with at minimum of one key-word argument, that being an api-key.

from printnodeapi.Gateway import Gateway
my_account_gateway = Gateway(apikey='my_api_key')

After creating a Gateway, you can access any requests as such:

my_account_id = my_account_gateway.account.id
new_tag = my_account_gateway.ModifyTag("Likes","PrintNode")

Initial Gateway Configuration

You can authenticate in 2 ways other than using an api-key:

Gateway(email='email',password='password')
Gateway(clientkey='ckey')

The three below will authenticate with access to child accounts of a specific user:

Gateway(apikey='api-key',child_email='c_email')
Gateway(apikey='api-key',child_ref='c_creator_ref')
Gateway(apikey='api-key',child_id='c_id')

Gateway Methods

All of these will have the associated API doc next to them. Any of the argument types will be exactly the same as the attributes used in a normal request. Any "Objects" under type are represented as a dict, which will have the same representation as the JSON objects.

Computers Library

This handles anything that is associated with a computer, such as Printers, PrintJobs, States (of PrintJobs) and Scales.

Account lookup

https://www.printnode.com/docs/api/curl/#whoami

account(self)

Returns an Account object of the currently authenticated account.

from printnodeapi import Gateway

gateway=Gateway(url='https://api.printnode.com',apikey='secretAPIKey')
print(gateway.account.firstname)

'''
Results:
Mr
'''

Computer lookup

https://www.printnode.com/docs/api/curl/#computers

computers(self, computer)

Given a set of computers, returns these computers. Given only one id, returns that computer.

from printnodeapi import Gateway

gateway=Gateway(url='https://api.printnode.com',apikey='secretAPIKey')
print(gateway.computers(computer=10027).name)

'''

Printer lookup

https://www.printnode.com/docs/api/curl/#printers

printers(self, computer=None, printer=None)

There are four ways this can be run:

  • printer & computer argument both None: Gives all printers attached to the account.
  • printer str/int, computer None: Gives a printer found from either an id or the name of a printer, taken from all possible printers.
  • printer None, computer int: Gives all printers attached to the computer given by an id.
  • printer str/int, computer int: Gives a printer found from either an id or the name of a printer, taken only from printers attached to the computer specified by the computer's id.
from printnodeapi import Gateway

gateway=Gateway(url='https://api.printnode.com',apikey='secretAPIKey')
print(gateway.printers(printer=50120).name)
for printer in gateway.printers(computer=10027):
    print(printer.name)

'''
Results:

10027.5.TEST-PRINTER
'''

PrintJob lookup

https://www.printnode.com/docs/api/curl/#printjob-viewing

printjobs(self, computer=None, printer=None, printjob=None

There are five ways this can be run:

  • No arguments : Returns all printjobs associated with the account.
  • computer int : Returns all printjobs relative to printers associated with the computer specified by the argument computer.
  • printer int : Returns all printjobs relative to the printer specificed by the argument printer.
  • computer int, printer int : Returns all printjobs relative to the printer specified by the argument printer from printers with access to computer.
  • printjob int : Returns specific printjob.
from printnodeapi import Gateway

gateway=Gateway(url='https://api.printnode.com',apikey='secretAPIKey')
printjob_id = gateway.printjobs(computer=10027)[0].id
print(gateway.printjobs(printer=50120)[0].id)
print(gateway.printjobs(printjob=printjob_id))
