Simple API for Google Cloud Print

Project Description

A simple interface to Google Cloud Print.

Usage:

>>> from cloudprinting import *
>>> auth = OAuth2(access_token="qwertyuiopasdfghjkl", token_token="Bearer")
>>> r = list_jobs(auth=auth)
>>> r['jobs']
[{"id": ...}, ...]
>>> r = submit_job(printer="0e506d12-dbe0-54d3-7392-fd69d45ff2fc", content="test.pdf", auth=auth)
>>> r['job']
{"id": "abcdefgh", ...}
>>> delete_job("abcdefgh", auth=auth)

Supports both Python 2 and 3:

  • ≥ Python 2.6
  • ≥ Python 3.2

Install

Use pip to install the latest version from PyPI:

pip install cloudprinting

Command line interface

The module can be used from the command line via:

python -m cloudprinting ...

See --help for details.

Tests

The test suite requires three environment variables:

  • CP_CLIENT_ID – application “client id” (Google API)
  • CP_CLIENT_SECRET – application “client secret” (Google API)
  • CP_REFRESH_TOKEN – refresh token for an authorised Google Account
  • CP_PRINTER_ID – printer ID (optional, default: __google__docs)

During the tests a PDF is printed. By default the Google Docs printer is used, however it is more forgiving than typical printers, so I don’t recommend using it.

Example:

CP_CLIENT_ID=1234567890.apps.googleusercontent.com \
CP_CLIENT_SECRET=asdfghjklzxcvbnmqwertyuiop \
CP_REFESH_TOKEN=mnbvcxzlkjhgfdspoiuytr \
CP_PRINTER_ID=0e50ed12-dbe0-54d3-a4bd-fdf9d45ff2fc \
tox
