FTP-like client for interacting with cloud storage

Project description


The cftp package provides an ftp-like interface to cloud-based storage services. It is basically a wrapper. It abstracts the user from the particulars of specific cloud storage services by exposing a common interface. Accessing the interface is simple. Instantiate a class corresponding to a desired cloud storage service (eg, Amazon S3). The class has methods corresponding to common ftp client commands.

The current version includes the four files noted below.

  1. - abstract base class for cloud ftp client
  2. - exceptions raised by
  3. - ftp-like client interface to Amazon’s S3 service
  4. - exceptions raised by

Over time, this package may be extended to include an ftp-like client interface to the DropBox storage services. That functionality would be implemented as a sub-class of, just as is a sub-class. The same is true for other cloud-based storage services that offer an API.


Install using pip or easy_install. The cftp package does require Amazon’s boto3 package, which exposes an API for controlling AWS objects using python. The boto3 package will be automatically installed (via pip or easy_install), since it is listed as a dependency in this package.


Before using this package, you will need to setup AWS authentication credentials as required by boto3. See the following URL:
