A python wrapper for Akamais Nestorage API

Project description

Netstorage is a simple client library for Akamai’s Netstorage API.

To get started, you’ll need the following from your account/luna portal.

  • Key name
  • Key
  • Hostname

Example Use

First you’ll need to create a Netstorage instance.

import netstorage

token_name, token, hostname = 'TOKENABC SECRET_TOKEN whalerock-nsu.akamai-hd.net'.split()
ns = netstorage(token_name, token, hostname)

Disk Usage

The root directory is usually a CP CODE.

disk_usage = ns.du('/39650')

print disk_usage.files
print disk_usage.size

List directory contents

Retrieve directory contents

directory_contents = ns.dir('/396500')
for item in directory_contents:
    print '{item.name} | {item.path} | {item.size}'.format(item=item)

Deleting a file

ns.delete('/396500/important.txt')

Downloading a file

ns.download('/396500/very_important.txt', '/tmp/very_important.txt')

# You can also supply a directory
ns.download('/396500/very_important.txt', '/tmp/')

Supported actions

You’ll notice that the methods match Akamai’s API documentation. The methods that are currrently supported are:

  • delete
  • dir
  • download
  • du
  • mkdir
  • rename
  • upload

Development Guide

To run tests, install tox and run tox.

Integration tests

We use betamax to capture the http/https interactions. We filter out sensitive data such as hostname to the nestorage instance, as well as the KEY NAME used in the headers.
