Python SDK for SecureDrop
This SDK provides a convenient Python interface to the SecureDrop Journalist Interface API. The development of the SDK was primarily motivated by the creation of the SecureDrop Workstation based on Qubes OS.
The SDK is currently used by the SecureDrop Client that is a component of the SecureDrop Workstation. When used in Qubes OS, the SDK uses the securedrop-proxy service, as the VM which runs the client does not have network access by design.
IMPORTANT: This project is still under active development. We do not recommend using it in any production context.
This project uses pipenv to manage all dependencies. This is a Python 3 project.
We are using mypy for type annotation checks.
We cover all the API calls supported by the SecureDrop Journalist Interface API.
Additional tests will be added in future.
To test the code, you will need to run the SecureDrop
make dev command on the same system. The test suite for
this project will test against that development container.
