BlackBerry OS tools, in Pythons
A Python 3.2+ package for various BlackBerry 10/BlackBerry Android-related functions and scripts.
As of version 2.3.0 (18 December 2015), a few scripts are packaged as Windows executables on GitHub.
To use, just download the bbarchivist-<version>-<system bit> archive attached to the latest release, unpack somewhere and double click an executable.
Alternatively, if you require full functionality or Linux/Mac/BSD support, keep reading.
Requires Python >=3.2, with 3.6 or later preferred.
To get the latest stable version, install with pip:
$ pip install bbarchivist
If you want the latest development version, clone from Git and install with setuptools:
$ git clone https://github.com/thurask/bbarchivist.git $ cd bbarchivist $ python setup.py install
If you have Git LFS, the data files will download automatically.
If you don’t have Git LFS, then run the
download_dats.py script in this folder.
The data files will be considered different with regards to git, so be warned.
Python 3.2 further requires shutilwhich. Installation of shutilwhich on Python 3.3+ has no effect, so it’s unnecessary.
The optional simplejson module is installed on Python 3.3+, for improved performance with dealing with JSON.
The optional defusedxml module is installed for safer XML handling. Use defusedxml 0.4.1 if you’re using Python 3.2 or 3.3.
Copies of cap.exe and cfp.exe are included.
Windows can directly access both .exe files through the
GPG support also requires some form of GPG client installed:
If you’re testing on Python 3.2, install the mock backport as well.
Coverage requires installation of pytest-cov.
Testing of GnuPG/7-Zip functions requires setting up GnuPG/7-Zip in the first place.
If you wish to contribute to this project, please do the following:
- Fork and clone source from GitHub (requires Git LFS)
- Make sure all tests run on your system (requires GPG, 7-Zip)
- Make your changes on a new branch without breaking any tests, and add tests for your new code if applicable
- Open a pull request on GitHub
