Note: This is a fork of the original project hosted on launchpad: https://launchpad.net/pygpgme
The goal here is mainly to add docstrings to methods and generate some actual documentation of the Python library (w/o making users guess arguments by reading documentation of the C library..)
A Python binding for the gpgme library, used to drive the gpg command line program.
More information about gpgme can be found here: http://www.gnupg.org/related_software/gpgme/index.html
This binding stays fairly close to the C API with the following exceptions:
Memory management is not exposed to the user
Functions like gpgme_get_foo()/gpgme_set_foo() are converted to attribute access on gpgme.Context objects.
Functions that take gpgme_data_t arguments take arbitrary Python file-like objects. The read(), write(), seek() and tell() methods may be used on the object.
Non-zero gpgme_error_t return values are converted to gpgme.error exceptions.
Only the synchronous versions of functions have been wrapped. However, the Python global interpreter lock is dropped, so should play nicely in multi-threaded Python programs.
Function pairs like gpgme_op_import()/gpgme_op_import_result() are combined into single method calls.
The Python version of gpgme_op_keylist() returns an iterator over the matched keys, rather than requiring the user to use a special iteration function.
This library is licensed under the LGPL, the same license as the gpgme library.
