A Python client for [Moss](http://theory.stanford.edu/~aiken/moss/): A System for Detecting Software Similarity

## Introduction

It is a Python interface for [Moss](http://theory.stanford.edu/~aiken/moss/) client. It was written for [AutoGrader](https://github.com/BilalZaib/AutoGrader) for handling similarity in Python assignment submission.

It was written using the [original bash script/documentation](http://moss.stanford.edu/general/scripts.html) and its [PHP](https://github.com/Phhere/MOSS-PHP) dialect.

### Installation

```shell
pip install mosspy
```

### Usage

```python
import mosspy

userid = 987654321

m = mosspy.Moss(userid, "python")

m.addBaseFile("submission/a01.py")
m.addBaseFile("submission/test_student.py")

# Submission Files
m.addFile("submission/a01-sample.py")
m.addFilesByWildcard("submission/a01-*.py")

url = m.send() # Submission Report URL

print ("Report Url: " + url)

# Save report file
m.saveWebPage(url, "submission/report.html")

# Download whole report locally including code diff links
mosspy.download_report(url, "submission/report/", connections=8)
```
