Python client library for EteSync
EteSync - Secure Data Sync
This is a python client library for EteSync
This module provides a python API to interact with an EteSync server. It currently implements AddressBook and Calendar access, and supports two-way sync (both push and pull) to the server. It doesn't currently implement pushing raw journal entries which are needed for people implementing new EteSync journal types which will be implemented soon.
To install, please run:
pip install etesync
The module works and the API is tested (see tests/), however there still may be some oddities, so please report if you encounter any.
There is one Authenticator endpoint, and one endpoint for the rest of the API interactions.
The way it works is that you run "sync", which syncs local cache with server. Afterwards you can either access the journal directly, or if you prefer, you can access a collection, for example a Calendar, and interact with the entries themselves, which are already in sync with the journal.
Check out example.py for a basic usage example, or the tests for a more complete example.
While this is stable enough for usage, it still may be subject to change, so please watch out for the changelog when updating version. Docs are currently missing but are planned.
Running the example script
You may also need to make sure you have the OpenSSL development package
Check out this repository:
git clone email@example.com:etesync/pyetesync.git cd pyetesync
Setup the environment:
python3 -m venv venv source venv/bin/activate pip install -r requirements.in/requirements-dev.txt
example.py to export your data:
python3 example.py <email> <auth password> <encryption password> https://api.etesync.com
You may need to surround your passwords in quotes and you may need to escape special characters with a
Please note, that depending on your setup, passing your passwords as command line parameters may not be completely secure,
so it would be better if you manually edit the file.
And all of your data will be copied to a local database located at
Running the tests
Some to the tests are unit tests, but some are integration tests who need an actual EteSync service with a few user names set up in order for them to work.
You'd need to run your local server: https://github.com/etesync/server-skeleton/
And then add two users:
Password for both: SomePassword
