API for bigbluebutton.

Project description


The work of this project is derivated from 98f2259fa3 by Steve Challis.

It is a wrapper for accessing the API of bigbluebutton

A simple example::

import argparse
from bigbluebutton import MeetingSetup, Meeting
import bbb_settings

if __name__ == '__main__':
PARSER = argparse.ArgumentParser(description='creates and join a session')
PARSER.add_argument('--meeting_name', dest="meeting_name", type=str, required=True,
help='name of the meeting')
PARSER.add_argument('--meeting_id', dest='meeting_id', required=True,
help='id for the meeting')
PARSER.add_argument('--moderator', dest='moderator', required=True,
help='name of the meeting moderator')
PARSER.add_argument( '--moderator_password', dest='moderator_password', required=True,
help='password for moderator')
PARSER.add_argument( '--attendee_password', dest='attendee_password', required=True,
help='password for attendee')
PARSER.add_argument( '--url', dest='url', required=True,
help='pre upload url')

ARGS = PARSER.parse_args()

session = MeetingSetup(bbb_settings.BBB_API_URL, bbb_settings.SALT,
ARGS.meeting_name, ARGS.meeting_id,
ARGS.attendee_password, ARGS.moderator_password,
print "meeting expires if noone joins in"

meeting = Meeting(bbb_settings.BBB_API_URL, bbb_settings.SALT)
print "MODERATOR:"
print meeting.join_url(ARGS.meeting_id, ARGS.moderator, ARGS.moderator_password)
print '-------------------------------------------'

print "RANDOM USER:"
print meeting.join_url(ARGS.meeting_id, 'RANDOM', ARGS.attendee_password)
print '-------------------------------------------'

print meeting.get_meetings()
print '-------------------------------------------'

print "IS RUNNING (meeting is only running after someone has joined in)"
print meeting.is_running(ARGS.meeting_id)
print '-------------------------------------------'

print meeting.end_meeting_url(ARGS.meeting_id, ARGS.moderator_password)
print '-------------------------------------------'

if meeting.is_running(ARGS.meeting_id):
meeting.end_meeting(ARGS.meeting_id, ARGS.moderator_password)
print '-------------------------------------------'
