DWLOAD server implemented in Python

Project description


DWLOAD server implemented in Python (OpenSource, GPL v3 or above).

It’s in unuseable, experimental state and currently nothing more then some tests scripts.

current state

Currently the server can only send files to the DWLOAD client.


The is a virtualenv bootstrap file, created with bootstrap_env, for easy installation.

Get the bootstrap file:

/home/FooBar$ wget

There are tree types of installation:

option desciption
pypi use Python Package Index (for all normal user!)
git_readonly use git to get the sourcecode (for developer without write access)
dev use git with write access


/home/FooBar$ python3 ~/dwload_server_env --install_type pypi

This creates a virtualenv in ``~/dwload_server_env`` and used the packages from the Python Package Index.


Setup server root directory. This is the directory for the files that are interchange with the client.

/home/FooBar$ cd ~/dwload_server_env/
/home/FooBar/dwload_server_env$ mkdir root

You have to put the DWEEB files into the root dir. e.g. dwload-demo-files from:

To start the server:

/home/FooBar$ cd ~/dwload_server_env/
/home/FooBar/dwload_server_env$ ./bin/python -m dwload_server.dwload_server --port /dev/ttyUSB0 --root_dir ./root

Display CLI help:

/home/FooBar/dwload_server_env$ ./bin/python -m dwload_server.dwload_server --help


  • compare checksum
  • maybe use a config.ini file?!?
