Project description


A python module that makes file transfer slightly easier


FileTransfer.send(filepath="", socket=s)
FileTransfer.receive(destination_folder_path="", socket=s)



import socket
import FileTransfer as ft

# Setup socket for use in file transfer
s = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_STREAM)
s.connect("ip.address", port)

ft.send(filepath, s) # Specify filepath as str and use client socket object


import socket
import FileTransfer as ft

# Setup simple socket receive
s = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_STREAM)
s.bind(("", port))
conn, addr = s.accept()

result = ft.receive("C:\\destination\\folder\\path\\", conn) # Invoke receive function
# Result is a tuple with the file contents being index 0 and filename being index 1
print("Filename: ", result[1], "File Contents: ", result[0])
