Pure python implementation of the adb client

Project description

This is pure-python implementation of the ADB client.

You can use it to communicate with adb server (not the adb daemon on the device/emulator).

When you use adb command

https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Swind/pure-python-adb/master/docs/adb_cli.png

Now you can use pure-python-adb to connect to adb server as adb command line

https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Swind/pure-python-adb/master/docs/adb_pure_python_adb.png

This package supports most of the adb command line tool’s functionality.

  1. adb devices
  2. adb shell
  3. adb forward
  4. adb pull/push
  5. adb install/uninstall

Requirements

Python 2.7+ / Python 3.6+

Installation

$pip install -U pure-python-adb

Examples

Connect to adb server and get the version

from adb.client import Client as AdbClient
# Default is "127.0.0.1" and 5037
client = AdbClient(host="127.0.0.1", port=5037)
print(client.version())

>>> 39

Connect to a device

from adb.client import Client as AdbClient
# Default is "127.0.0.1" and 5037
client = AdbClient(host="127.0.0.1", port=5037)
device = client.device("emulator-5554")

List all devices ( adb devices ) and install/uninstall an APK on all devices

from adb.client import Client as AdbClient

apk_path = "example.apk"

# Default is "127.0.0.1" and 5037
client = AdbClient(host="127.0.0.1", port=5037)
devices = client.devices()

for device in devices:
    device.install(apk_path)

# Check apk is installed
for device in devices:
    print(device.is_installed("example.package"))

# Uninstall
for device in devices:
    device.uninstall("example.package)

adb shell

from adb.client import Client as AdbClient
# Default is "127.0.0.1" and 5037
client = AdbClient(host="127.0.0.1", port=5037)
device = client.device("emulator-5554")
device.shell("echo hello world !")
def dump_logcat(connection):
    while True:
        data = connection.read(1024)
        if not data:
            break
        print(data.decode('utf-8')))

    connection.close()

from adb.client import Client as AdbClient
# Default is "127.0.0.1" and 5037
client = AdbClient(host="127.0.0.1", port=5037)
device = client.device("emulator-5554")
device.shell("logcat", handler=dump_logcat)

Screenshot

from adb.client import Client as AdbClient
client = AdbClient(host="127.0.0.1", port=5037)
device = client.device("emulator-5554")
result = device.screencap()
with open("screen.png", "wb") as fp:
    fp.write(result)

Push

from adb.client import Client as AdbClient
client = AdbClient(host="127.0.0.1", port=5037)
device = client.device("emulator-5554")

device.push("example.apk", "/sdcard/example.apk")

Pull

from adb.client import Client as AdbClient
client = AdbClient(host="127.0.0.1", port=5037)
device = client.device("emulator-5554")

device.shell("screencap -p /sdcard/screen.png")
device.pull("/sdcard/screen.png", "screen.png")

How to run test cases

Prepare

  1. Install Docker
  2. Install Docker Compose
pip install docker-compose
  1. Modify test/conftest.py

Change the value of adb_host to the “emulator”

adb_host="emulator"
  1. Run testcases
docker-compose up
