Google cloud print proxy for linux/OSX

Project description

Share your CUPS printers with google’s cloud print. Works with linux and OS X.

This software is a python implementation of a cloud print connector. Unlike Google’s linux connector, it does not require chrome to be installed on the server.

Requires

  • python 2.6 or 2.7
  • pycups (can be tricky on OS X) wich depends on libcups2-dev

Usage

cloudprint [<option> ...]
-d              : enable daemon mode (requires the daemon module)
-l              : logout of the current google account
-p pid_file     : path to write the pid to (default cloudprint.pid)
-a account_file : path to google account ident data (optional)
-c              : establish and store login credentials, then exit
-f              : 'fast poll', if notifications aren't working
-u              : store username/password in addition to login token
                  to avoid authentication expiration
-i regexp       : include files matching regexp
-x regexp       : exclude filees matching regexp
                  regexp: a Python regexp, which is matched against the
                          start of the printer name
-h              : display this help

Google accounts with 2 step verification enabled need to use an application-specific password.

Example

cloudprint
Google username: username@gmail.com
Password:
Added Printer Brother-HL-2170W

Examples - Include/Exclude

Include only the printers “lp” and “2up”:

cloudprint -i lp -i 2up

Exclude all printers whose names start with “GCP-“:

cloudprint -x GCP-

By default, all printers are included. For the include and exclude options, the argument is a regular expression which is matched against the start of the printer name.

For example, to include all printers whose names begin “lp”:

cloudprint -i lp # includes both lp and lp2up

Install

pip install cloudprint
or with optional daemon support
pip install cloudprint[daemon]

After running cloudprint, verify that the connector successfully installed the cloud printer by visiting http://www.google.com/cloudprint/manage.html.
