Package Usage

This package very closely mirrors the functionality of pysftp, except it automatically recovers a connection in the event that network connectivity is intermittent.

It also introduces a mirroring functionality, where you can copy a local directory to a remote server, or copy a remote directory to the local. It will ignore files that already exist on the destination, if the file size and modification time are identical.

Basic Usage

The DurableSFTPConnection class is intended to be a drop-in replacement for the pysftp.Connection class. With a stable network connection, it should be identical in every way.

from durasftp import DurableSFTPConnection

conn = DurableSFTPConnection(host="", port=22, username="your_username", password="ULTRASECUREPASSWORD")

Mirror from remote server to local

from durasftp import Mirrorer

mirrorer = Mirrorer(
