Egnyte Public API SDK

Project description

Egnyte SDK

This is the official Python client library for Egnyte’s Public APIs. For overview of the HTTP API, go to https://developers.egnyte.com

Getting an API key

Register on https://developers.egnyte.com/member/register to get API key for your Egnyte account. This key is required to generate an Egnyte OAuth token.

Examples

  • Include this library
  • Generate an access token
  • Create a client object
client = egnyte.EgnyteClient({"domain": "apidemo.egnyte.com",
    "access_token": "68zc95e3xv954u6k3hbnma3q"})
  • Create a folder
folder = client.folder("/Shared/new").create(ignore_if_exists=True)
  • Delete a folder
client.folder("/Shared/time to say goodbye").delete()
  • Get a list of files in a folder, download a file, replace it’s contents, add a note
folder = client.folder("/Shared/foo that need to be bar")
folder.list()
for file_obj in folder.files:
    with file_obj.download() as download:
        data = download.read()
    # replace file contents
    file_obj.upload(data.replace(b"foo", b"bar"))
    file_obj.add_note("all occurrences of 'foo' replaced by 'bar'!")
  • Get a list of files in a subfolders
folder = client.folder("/Shared")
folder.list()
for folder_obj in folder.folders:
    do_something(folder_obj)
  • Upload a new file from local file
file_obj = client.file("/Private/smeagol/my precious")
with open("local path", "rb") as fp:
    file_obj.upload(fp)
  • Delete a file
file_obj.delete()
  • Do a recursive download
client.bulk_download(['/Shared/a dir', '/Shared/another dir'],
    '/home/smeagol/', overwrite=True)
  • Do a recursive upload
client.bulk_upload(['/tmp/some directory', '/tmp/some file'], '/Shared/Marketing')
  • Search for files
import datetime
results = api.search.files('"some text" OR "other text"', folder='/Shared', modified_after=datetime.date(2015, 1, 15))
  • Get and process events from server
events = api.events.filter(folder='/Shared', suppress='user')
old_events = events.list(events.latest_event_id - 10, count = 10) # get events in batches
future_events = iter(events)
for event in future_events: # polls server continously, iterator over single events, iterator will never end
    do_something(event)
    if condition(event):
        break

Full documentation

The docs subdirectory contains just the source for the documentation. You can read the documentation at http://egnyte.github.io/python-egnyte-docs/

Command line

If you’re using implicit flow, you’ll need to provide access token directly. If you’re using API token with resource flow, you can generate API access token using command line options. See the full documentation or install, then use:

python -m egnyte -h

Dependencies

This library depends on:

  • requests 2.2.1 or later - for HTTPS calls
  • six 1.8.0 or later - for Python 2 and 3 compatibility using same source

Thread safety

Each client object should be used from one thread at a time. This library does no locking of it’s own - it is responsibility of the caller to do so if necessary.

Running tests

Tests can be run with nose or trial directly on the egnyte package, or from setup.py:

python setup.py test

or

python setup.py nosetests

Integration tests will be skipped unless you create ~/.egnyte/test_config.json You can create this file manually or with following command:

python -m egnyte -c test_config.json config create -k -d -l [-p ]

Helping with development

First, report any problems you find to https://developers.egnyte.com/forum/ or api-support@egnyte.com

If you’d like to fix something yourself, please fork this repository, commit the fixes and updates to tests, then set up a pull request with information what you’re fixing.

Please remember to assign copyright of your fixes to Egnyte or make them public domain so we can legally merge them.
