PyPKPass

A series of Python objects for the construction, management, and serialization of iOS PassKit passes.

Coming Soon

Builtin support for transporting PKPasses. Pre-rolled Flask-based support for PassKit webServices.

A Certified Mess

Like all Apple endeavors, the amount of signature hoops one must jump through to create a .pkpass is immense. However, PyPKPass attempts to reduce the amount of strife on you by requiring only 1 file for certification.

The private key of your pass type, in .p12 format. This can be gotten by opening Keychain Access.app, finding your Pass Type ID certificate (which you made here, right?), and exporting the PRIVATE KEY as a .p12 file.

You'll need this files for signing passes. Optionally, you can provide your own WWDR certificate. If you have any problems, Google around (there's plenty of tutorials out there) or feel free to email me.

PKPass

  • passTypeIdentifier: Pass type identifier, as issued by Apple. The value must correspond with your signing certificate.

  • serialNumber: Serial number that uniquely identifies the pass. No two passes with the same pass type identifier may have the same serial number.

  • organizationName: Display name of the organization that originated and signed the pass.

  • teamIdentifier: Team identifier of the organization that originated and signed the pass, as issued by Apple.

  • iconLocation: The Unix path of the pass' icon. Standard @2x scaling name schemes apply.

  • logoLocation: The Unix path of the pass' logo. Standard @2x scaling name schemes apply.

  • thumbnailLocation: The Unix path of the pass' thumbnail. Standard @2x scaling name schemes apply.

  • stripLocation: The Unix path of the pass' strip image. Standard @2x scaling name schemes apply.

  • footerLocation: The Unix path of the pass' footer. Standard @2x scaling name schemes apply.

  • authenticationToken: The authentication token to use with the web service.

  • webServiceURL: The URL of a web service that conforms to the API described in Pass Kit Web Service Reference. The web service must use the HTTPS protocol and includes the leading https://.

  • locations: Locations where the pass is relevant. For example, the location of your store.

  • relevantDate: Date and time when the pass becomes relevant. For example, the start time of a movie.

  • barcode: A PKPassBarcode object.

  • backgroundColor: Background color of the pass, specified as an CSS-style RGB triple. For example, rgb(23, 187, 82).

  • foregroundColor: Foreground color of the pass, specified as a CSS-style RGB triple. For example, rgb(100, 10, 110).

  • labelColor: Color of the label text, specified as a CSS-style RGB triple. For example, rgb(255, 255, 255). If omitted, the label color is determined automatically.

  • logoText: Text displayed next to the logo on the pass.

  • passType: The key which identifies the type of pass. This is automatically set by PKPass and its subclasses.

  • headerFields: Fields to be displayed prominently on the front of the pass.

  • primaryFields: Fields to be displayed prominently on the front of the pass.

  • secondaryFields: Fields to be displayed on the front of the pass.

  • auxiliaryFields: Additional fields to be displayed on the front of the pass.

  • backFields: Fields to be on the back of the pass.

init

__init__(self, passTypeIdentifier, serialNumber)

Initializes a new PKPass object with the given passTypeIdentifier and serialNumber.

addRelevantLocation

addRelevantLocation(self, latitude, longitude, altitude = 0, relevantText = None)

Creates a new PKPassLocation and adds it to this PKPass's locations list.

  • latitude: Latitude, in degrees, of the location.
  • longitude: Longitude, in degrees, of the location.
  • altitude: Altitude, in meters, of the location. Ignored if 0.
  • relevantText: Text displayed on the lock screen when the pass is currently relevant. For example, a description of the nearby location such as “Store nearby on 1st and Main.”

setBarcode

setBarcode(self, message, format = "PKBarcodeFormatQR", messageEncoding = "iso-8859-1", altText = None)

Creates a new PKPassBarcode and sets it to this PKPass's barcode variable.

  • message: Message or payload to be displayed as a barcode.
  • format: Barcode format.
  • messageEncoding: Text encoding that is used to convert the message from the string representation to a data representation to render the barcode. The value is typically iso-8859-1, but you may use another encoding that is supported by your barcode scanner and software.
  • altText: Text displayed near the barcode. For example, a human-readable version of the barcode data in case the barcode doesn’t scan.

addField

addField(self, destination, key, value, label, changeMessage, textAlignment)

Creates a new PKPassField and adds it to destination.

  • destination: The list to which the new PKPassField should be added
  • key: The key must be unique within the scope of the entire pass. For example, “departure-gate”.
  • value: Value of the field. For example, 42.
  • label: Label text for the field.
  • changeMessage: Format string for the alert text that is displayed when the pass is updated. The format string may contain the escape %@, which is replaced with the field’s new value. For example, “Gate changed to %@.” If you don’t specify a change message, the user isn’t notified when the field changes.
  • textAlignment: Alignment for the field’s contents.

addHeaderField

addHeaderField(self, key, value, label = None, changeMessage = None, textAlignment = "PKTextAlignmentNatural")

Calls addField with this PKPass's headerFields variable as destination.

addPrimaryField

addPrimaryField(self, key, value, label = None, changeMessage = None, textAlignment = "PKTextAlignmentNatural")

Calls addField with this PKPass's primaryFields variable as destination.

addSecondaryField

addSecondaryField(self, key, value, label = None, changeMessage = None, textAlignment = "PKTextAlignmentNatural")

Calls addField with this PKPass's secondaryFields variable as destination.

addAuxiliaryField

addAuxiliaryField(self, key, value, label = None, changeMessage = None, textAlignment = "PKTextAlignmentNatural")

Calls addField with this PKPass's auxiliaryFields variable as destination.

addBackField

addBackField(self, key, value, label = None, changeMessage = None, textAlignment = "PKTextAlignmentNatural")

Calls addField with this PKPass's backFields variable as destination.

serialized

serialized(self)

Returns a JSON-valid dict object representing this PKPass. None values will not be serialized.

pack

pack(self, outputLocation)

Creates a package-style directory containing this pass, serialized into pass.json, its icon files, and its logo files.

sign

sign(self, certLocation, certPassword, outputLocation, wwdrCertLocation = 'WWDR.pem')

Creates a signed, compressed .pkpass file containing this pass' package.
