A straight-forward WebDAV client, ported from easywebdav to use aiohttp.

Project description

This project started as a port of the requests-based EasyWebDAV ( ) to asyncio on Python 3.5. It has since been extended with additional features.


  • Basic authentication
  • Creating directories, removing directories and files
  • Uploading and downloading files
  • Directory listing
  • Support for client side SSL certificates
  • Fragmented download (multiple chunks in simultaneous streams)
  • MD5 checksum validation when used with OwnCloud/Nextcloud webdav
  • Progress tracking/reporting via callback system


Install using distribute:

pip install aioeasywebdav

Quick Start

import aioeasywebdav
loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()

# Start off by creating a client object. Username and
# password may be omitted if no authentication is needed.
webdav = aioeasywebdav.connect('', username='myuser', password='mypass')

# Do some stuff:

async def fn():
    await'/remote/path/to/file', '/local/target/file')
    await webdav.upload('/local/path/to/file', '/remote/target/file')

Client object API

The API is pretty much self-explanatory:

mkdir(path, safe=False)
rmdir(path, safe=False)
upload(local_path_or_fileobj, remote_path)
download(remote_path, local_path)

Using clientside SSL certificate

webdav = aioeasywebdav.connect('',
# Do some stuff:

Please note that all options and restriction regarding the “cert” parameter from Requests API apply here as the parameter is only passed through!

Developing aioEasyWebDAV

Working with a virtual environment is highly recommended:

virtualenv --no-site-packages aioeasywebdav_dev
source aioeasywebdav_dev/bin/activate

Installing the library in development-mode:

EASYWEBDAV_DEV=1 python develop

The first part of the command causes to install development dependencies, in addition to the normal dependencies.

Running the tests:

nosetests --with-yanc --nologcapture --nocapture tests

Running the tests with WebDAV server logs:

WEBDAV_LOGS=1 nosetests --with-yanc --nologcapture --nocapture -v tests
