A convenient smbclient wrapper
Python smbclient wrapper.
This is a wrapper that works by running the “smbclient” subprocess and providing an API similar to the one provided by python os module.
It is an ugly hack, but it is here for anyone that finds it useful.
The programmer before me was using a “bash” file with lots of smbclient calls, so I think my solution is at least better.
>>> smb = smbclient.SambaClient(server="MYSERVER", share="MYSHARE", username='foo', password='bar', domain='baz') >>> print smb.listdir("/") [u'file1.txt', u'file2.txt'] >>> f = smb.open('/file1.txt') >>> data = f.read() >>> f.close() >>> smb.rename(u'/file1.txt', u'/file1.old')
