Command Line Interface to Speakeasy
Bootlegger is the command line interface for speakeasy, the paranoid file storage solution.
pip install bootlegger
or clone the repo and run
python setup.py install
Create a folder in your home directory called .bootlegger. In this folder, generate private and public RSA keys called user_private.pem and user_public.pem, respectively. This can be accomplished using openssl.
cd ~/.bootlegger openssl genrsa -out user_private.pem 2048 # add -des3 if you want a passphrase openssl rsa -pubout -in user_private.pem -out user_public.pem
Create a file in the .bootlegger folder called bootlegger.conf. Add the following information
[speakeasy] host = www.example.com username = testuser
Replace the values with your desired host and username.
To add your public key to the server, run
To upload a file, run
bl upload file.txt
You can give this subcommand multiple arguments
bl upload file1.txt file2.txt …
Giving the prefix option prefixes each filename on the server
bl upload file.txt -p xyz # uploads to xyz_file.txt
To list all the files you have stored on the server, run
You can optionally give the list command a Unix typeglob as a parameter to list only files that match the pattern. Make sure to properly escape to the glob so that your shell doesn’t expand it.
bl list *.txt
To download a file run
bl download file.txt
If the file is prefixed, run
bl download file.txt -p xyz # downloads xyz_file.txt to file.txt
To download into a directory other than the current working directory run
bl download file.txt -d some/other/directory
To get detailed information about a file, run
bl info file.txt
To share a file with another user, run
bl share otheruser file.txt
To see the dates of previous versions of the file, run
bl versions file.txt
You can override the username and host in the configuration file by passing arguments to the –username and –host options on the command line.
