This assumes you have a working familiarity with asyncio.

import asyncio
from aioipfs_api.client import Client

async def main():
    async with Client() as client:
        # print the readme
        async with"QmYwAPJzv5CZsnA625s3Xf2nemtYgPpHdWEz79ojWnPbdG/readme") as f:
            print(await f.text())

        # add a directory
        print(await client.add('/some/dir/path'))

loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()


This library uses the standard Python logging library. To see debut output printed to STDOUT, for instance, use:

import logging

log = logging.getLogger('aioipfs_api')
