A JSONRPC-like client and server with additions to enable authenticated requests
This package provides a service based on JSONRPC with some small additions to the standard in order to enable authenticated requests. The WSGI specification is used for data communication. The package is broken down into two halves - a client and a server. For security, the server is best run over HTTPS, although this is not enforced.
This package depends on WebOb 1.2 (or above). This is automatically installed if you have an internet connection and use pip, otherwise download and install from http://pypi.python.org/pypi/WebOb
Example Usage (Server):
import hashlib from wsgiref import simple_server from AuthRPC.server import AuthRPCApp def myauth(username, password, useragent): return username == 'myuser' and \ password == hashlib.md5('secret'.encode()).hexdigest() and \ useragent == 'myprogram' class api(object): def do_something(self, myvar): """Your code placed here""" return 'Something', myvar application = AuthRPCApp(api(), auth=myauth, filepath='/home/myapp/datadir') server = simple_server.make_server('localhost', 1234, application) server.serve_forever()
Example Usage (Client):
from AuthRPC.client import ServerProxy, BatchCall client = ServerProxy('http://localhost:1234/', username='myuser', password='secret', user_agent='myprogram') retval = client.do_something('test') # get a file and save local copy file_contents_generator = client.__getfile__('myfile.pdf') with open('myfile_downloaded.pdf', 'wb') as f: for data in file_contents_generator: f.write(data) batch = BatchCall(client) batch.do_something('call 1') batch.do_something('call 2') batch()
