Python API for bigbluebutton.

Project description

The work of this project is derivated from https://github.com/schallis/django-bigbluebutton 98f2259fa3 by Steve Challis.

It is a wrapper for accessing the API of bigbluebutton http://code.google.com/p/bigbluebutton/wiki/API

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,
                           pre_upload_slide=ARGS.url)
    session.create_meeting()
    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("ALL MEETINGS")
    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("END MEETING URL")
    print(meeting.end_meeting_url(ARGS.meeting_id, ARGS.moderator_password))
    print('-------------------------------------------')


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