Simple access to LDAP Directory Information Tree.

Project description


LDAP-Hopper is a simplistic Python binding for accessing an LDAP Directory
Information Tree(DIT).

#!/usr/bin/env python
from ldap_hopper import Cursor

# access the root-node
server = 'localhost'
base_dn = 'dc=example,dc=org'
bind_dn = 'cn=admin,dc=example,dc=org'
bind_pw = 'secret'
root = Cursor(server, base_dn, bind_dn, bind_pw)

# show attributes of root-node
print root.attrs

# get childs of root
print root.childs

# get subtree of root
print root.subs

# Filter uid objects from all subs
print filter(lambda x: x['uid'], root.subs)

# add child node
new_child = {
'objectClass': ['organizationalUnit'],
'ou': ['padawans'],
new_node = root.add_child('ou=node_1,dc=example,dc=org', new_child)
new_node = root.add_child('ou=node_2', new_child) # will auto-expand self.dn
print new_node

# search for an object'ou', new_node['ou']) # no scope defaults to onelevel'ou', new_node['ou'], ldap.SCOPE_SUBTREE) # default can be overwritten

# delete child node
