Quick Usage

The API initializaton requires the following parameters to be present:

  • apikey: The API key assigned by for your application
  • email: The email address linked to an API key
  • password: The password linked to an API key

Example initialization:

from pygett import Gett

client = Gett(
        apikey = "apitest",
        email = "",
        password = "secret"

Getting a dict of all shares:

shares = client.get_shares()
for file in shares['4ddfds'].files
    print file.filename

Getting a list of all shares:

shares = client.get_shares_list()
for share in shares:
    for file in share.files:
        print share.sharename + "\t" + file.filename + "\t" + file.size

Getting a specific share:

share = client.get_share("4ddfds")

Getting a specific file:

file = client.get_file("4ddfds", 0)

Uploading a file:

file = client.upload_file(
        filename = "test.rst",
        data = open("test.rst", "rb").read()

    print "File '%s' is now available at %s" % (file.filename, file.getturl)

Downloading file content:

file = client.get_file("4ddfds", 0)
open("myCopy.txt", "wb").write(file.contents())
