python-neocities - Python API for

python-neocities is a Python wrapper of the REST API. is a FLOSS service which offers 20 Megabytes of gratis and ad-free hosting inspired by GeoCities. I really liked their approach so I decided to contribute this little API.

To install it, type python install or make install.

The unit tests rely on having a account. To run them, type


But then again, I wouldn't recommend running them at all since they might make you seem suspicious to NC's admins and the API is simple enough.


First, you must initialize a NeoCities object with

import neocities

nc = neocities.NeoCities('username', 'password')

(Passing a valid username and password is not necessary if you are only going to use the info call)

After you've done that, you can query NeoCities for information about a specific site with:

response ='sitename')

If you have provided correct login credentials, you can also query NeoCities for your own site's info with

response =

You can upload files with

nc.upload(('name_on_disk', 'name_on_server'), ...)

Where name_on_server is the name you want the file to have on the NeoCities server and name_on_disk is the name (path) of the file on your disk.

You can delete a file remotely with

nc.delete('filename1', ...)

To make sure you are not doing something wrong, the InvalidRequestError exception will be fired when you do. It has a status_code attribute which contains the status code returned by your request. For a list of status codes (useful to debug your requests), check out this Wikipedia page.
