Write host public ip to Google Drive.

Project description

PyPI-Status PyPI-Versions LICENCE

A service that writes the public ip address of the host computer to a file on Google Drive.

# after setting up ~/.config/ipgdrive/cfg.json
# setup a cronjob to write the public ip address to
# Google doc every 5 minutes
ipgdrive setupjob -m 5

1   Installation

pip install ipgdrive

2   Setup

To enable Google Drive access, follow the instructions here to create a service account with Google Drive access, and create a json key file for it.

Don’t forget to follow all the above instructions, including sharing your spreadsheet with an email you have in your json_key['client_email'] (Otherwise you’ll get a SpreadsheetNotFound or an APIError with "PERMISSION_DENIED" exception when trying to open it).

Place this file in the ~/.config/ipgdrive/ folder, and rename it to google_drive_service_account_key.json.

Additionally, create a cfg.json file inside the ~/.config/ipgdrive/ folder, and populate it with the following values:

    "spreadsheet_name": "my_server_public_ip",
    "username": "momo",
    "freq_minutes": 5

The username is for the user running the process on the server, NOT the Google account username.

3   Use

# after setting up ~/.config/ipgdrive/cfg.json
# setup a cronjob to write the public ip address to
# Google doc every 5 minutes
ipgdrive setupjob -m 5

4.1   Installing for development


git clone

Install in development mode, including test dependencies:

cd ipgdrive
pip install -e '.[test]'

4.2   Running the tests

To run the tests use:

cd ipgdrive

4.3   Adding documentation

The project is documented using the numpy docstring conventions, which were chosen as they are perhaps the most widely-spread conventions that are both supported by common tools such as Sphinx and result in human-readable docstrings. When documenting code you add to this project, follow these conventions.

Additionally, if you update this README.rst file, use python checkdocs to validate it compiles.
