EasyWebDAV: A WebDAV Client in Python

Features

  • Basic authentication
  • Creating directories, removing directories and files
  • Uploading and downloading files
  • Directory listing
  • Support for client side SSL certificates

Installation

Install using distribute:

easy_install easywebdav

Quick Start

import easywebdav
# Start off by creating a client object. Username and
# password may be omitted if no authentication is needed.
webdav = easywebdav.connect('webdav.your-domain.com', username='myuser', password='mypass')
# Do some stuff:
webdav.mkdir('some_dir')
webdav.rmdir('another_dir')
webdav.download('remote/path/to/file', 'local/target/file')
webdav.upload('local/path/to/file', 'remote/target/file')

Client object API

The API is pretty much self-explanatory:

cd(path)
ls(path=None)
exists(remote_path)
mkdir(path, safe=False)
mkdirs(path)
rmdir(path, safe=False)
delete(file_path)
upload(local_path_or_fileobj, remote_path)
download(remote_path, local_path_or_fileobj)

Using clientside SSL certificate

webdav = easywebdav.connect('secure.example.net',
                            username='user',
                            password='pass',
                            protocol='https',
                            cert="/path/to/your/certificate.pem")
# Do some stuff:
print webdav.ls()

Please note that all options and restriction regarding the "cert" parameter from Requests API apply here as the parameter is only passed through!

Developing EasyWebDAV

Working with a virtual environment is highly recommended:

virtualenv --no-site-packages easywebdav_dev
source easywebdav_dev/bin/activate

Installing the library in development-mode:

EASYWEBDAV_DEV=1 python setup.py develop

The first part of the command causes setup.py to install development dependencies, in addition to the normal dependencies.

Running the tests:

nosetests --with-yanc --nologcapture --nocapture tests

Running the tests with WebDAV server logs:

WEBDAV_LOGS=1 nosetests --with-yanc --nologcapture --nocapture -v tests
