Ldaptor

https://travis-ci.org/twisted/ldaptor.svg?branch=master

Ldaptor is a pure-Python library that implements:

  • LDAP client logic
  • separately-accessible LDAP and BER protocol message generation/parsing
  • ASCII-format LDAP filter generation and parsing
  • LDIF format data generation
  • Samba password changing logic

Also included is a set of LDAP utilities for use from the command line.

Verbose documentation can be found on ReadTheDocs.

Quick Usage Example

from twisted.internet import reactor, defer
from ldaptor.protocols.ldap import ldapclient, ldapsyntax, ldapconnector

@defer.inlineCallbacks
def example():
    # The following arguments may be also specified as unicode strings
    # but it is recommended to use byte strings for ldaptor objects
    serverip = b'192.168.128.21'
    basedn = b'dc=example,dc=com'
    binddn = b'bjensen@example.com'
    bindpw = b'secret'
    query = b'(cn=Babs*)'
    c = ldapconnector.LDAPClientCreator(reactor, ldapclient.LDAPClient)
    overrides = {basedn: (serverip, 389)}
    client = yield c.connect(basedn, overrides=overrides)
    yield client.bind(binddn, bindpw)
    o = ldapsyntax.LDAPEntry(client, basedn)
    results = yield o.search(filterText=query)
    for entry in results:
        print(entry.getLDIF())

if __name__ == '__main__':
    df = example()
    df.addErrback(lambda err: err.printTraceback())
    df.addCallback(lambda _: reactor.stop())
    reactor.run()

Installation

Ldaptor can be installed using the standard command line method:

python setup.py install

or using pip from PyPI:

pip install ldaptor

Linux distributions may also have ready packaged versions of Ldaptor and Twisted. Debian and Ubuntu have quality Ldaptor packages that can be installed e.g., by:

apt-get install python-ldaptor

To run the LDAP server (bind port 38942) from a repo checkout with the project installed:

twistd -n --pidfile=ldapserver.pid --logfile=ldapserver.log \
    -y test-ldapserver.tac
