Pyfilesystem2 over SSH using paramiko
Install directly from PyPI, using pip
pip install fs.sshfs
Use fs.open_fs to open a filesystem with an SSH FS URL:
import fs my_fs = fs.open_fs("ssh://[user[:password]@]host[:port]/[directory]")
The following URL parameters are supported: timeout, keepalive.
For a more granular way of connecting to an SSH server, use the fs.sshfs.SSHFS constructor, which signature is:
from fs.sshfs import SSHFS my_fs = SSHFS( host, user=None, paswd=None, pkey=None, timeout=10, port=22, keepalive=10, compress=False, config_path='~/.ssh/config' )
with each argument explained below:
- the name or IP address of the SSH server
- the username to connect with, defaults to the current user.
- an optional password, used to connect directly to the server or to decrypt the public key, if any given.
- a paramiko.PKey object, a path, or a list of paths to an SSH key.
- the timeout, in seconds, for networking operations.
- the port the SSH server is listening on.
- the interval of time between keepalive packets, in seconds. Set to 0 to disable.
- set to True to compress the communications with the server
- the path to an OpenSSH configuration file.
Once created, the SSHFS filesystem behaves like any other filesystem (see the Pyfilesystem2 documentation).
SSHFS are aware of SSH config files and as such, one of the hosts in the configuration file can be provided as the host argument for the filesystem to connect to the server with the proper configuration values.
