Library for downloading scans from a Doxie Go Wi-Fi document scanner

Project Description

A Python library for the developer API of the Doxie Go Wi-Fi document scanner.


doxieapi is available on PyPI: Install with pip:

$ pip install doxieapi


Doxie scanners on the network can discovered automatically using SSDP:

>>> from doxieapi import DoxieScanner
>>> scanners =
>>> print(scanners)
[<DoxieScanner: Doxie model DX250 (Doxie_01AFD2) at>]

Recent and all scans can be listed:

>>> scanner = scanners[0]
>>> scanner.recent
>>> scanner.scans[:2]
[{'modified': '2010-05-01 00:17:28', 'name': '/DOXIE/JPEG/IMG_0001.JPG', 'size': 1365552},
{'modified': '2010-05-01 00:17:44', 'name': '/DOXIE/JPEG/IMG_0002.JPG', 'size': 1362595}]

Scans can be downloaded individually or all at once:

>>> scanner.download_scan("/DOXIE/JPEG/IMG_0001.JPG", "/tmp")
>>> scanner.download_scans("/tmp")
['/tmp/IMG_0001.JPG', '/tmp/IMG_0002.JPG']

Scans can be deleted too:

>>> scanner.delete_scan("/DOXIE/JPEG/IMG_0001.JPG")
>>> scanner.delete_scans([scan['name'] for scan in scanner.scans])

Other attributes from the API can be queried:

>>> scanner.firmware
>>> scanner.firmware_wifi

You can also run the module directly to download all available scans from all Doxies on the network to the current directory:

$ python -m doxieapi
Discovered Doxie model DX250 (Doxie_01AFD2) at
Saved /Users/dave/Code/doxieapi/doxieapi/IMG_0001.JPG
Saved /Users/dave/Code/doxieapi/doxieapi/IMG_0002.JPG


Connecting to password-protected Doxies is made possible by putting the password for each scanner in ~/.doxieapi.ini. Create sections named with the scanner’s MAC address, for example:
