A Python 3 wrapper to use WeTransfer API V2 transfer and board

Project description

WeTransfer V2 Upload wrapper

This module allows you to use WeTransfer services directly, from python 3.x.

It is based on current WeTransfer API V2: https://developers.wetransfer.com/documentation

Project team:

  • Francois Liot (Author)
  • Sander Huijsen (Heavy Contributor)

Installation

Install through Pypi:

pip install py3wetransfer

Functional features

Usage

Before starting, make sure you have an API key acquired from Developers Portal.

To initialize the client, you need to use your own api key.

Transfer

upload_file

Simply send your file

from wetransfer import TransferApi

x = TransferApi("<my-very-personal-api-key>")

print(x.upload_file("Test upload file", "test.zip"))
# "https://we.tl/t-ajQpdqGxco"

upload_files

Send several files

from wetransfer import TransferApi

x = TransferApi("<my-very-personal-api-key>")

print(x.upload_files("Test upload files", ["file1.zip", "file2.zip"]))
# "https://we.tl/t-ajQpdqGxco"

Board

Manage board

from wetransfer import BoardApi

x = BoardApi("<my-very-personal-api-key>")

board_id, board_url = x.create_new_board("test board")

print(board_url)
# "https://we.tl/t-ajQpdqGxco"

# add links
x.add_links_to_board(board_id, [{"url": "https://wetransfer.com/", "title": "WeTransfer"}])

# add files
x.add_files_to_board(board_id, ["test1.png", "test2.jpg"])

# retrieve the board object 
# https://wetransfer.github.io/wt-api-docs/index.html#retrieve-boards-information
board_object = x.get_board(board_id)

Debug

import logging
from wetransfer import TransferApi

logging.basicConfig()
logging.getLogger().setLevel(logging.DEBUG)
py3wetransfer_log = logging.getLogger('wetransfer')
py3wetransfer_log.setLevel(logging.DEBUG)
py3wetransfer_log.propagate = True

x = TransferApi("<my-very-personal-api-key>")

print(x.upload_file("test upload", "test.zip"))
# "https://we.tl/t-ajQpdqGxco"

If you want to see complete http traffic:

import logging
from wetransfer import TransferApi

import http.client as http_client
http_client.HTTPConnection.debuglevel = 1

logging.basicConfig()
logging.getLogger().setLevel(logging.DEBUG)
py3wetransfer_log = logging.getLogger('wetransfer')
py3wetransfer_log.setLevel(logging.DEBUG)
py3wetransfer_log.propagate = True

x = TransferApi("<my-very-personal-api-key>")

print(x.upload_file("test upload", "test.zip"))
# "https://we.tl/t-ajQpdqGxco"

Testing authentication

If you need to test authentication validity

from wetransfer import TransferApi

x = TransferApi("<my-very-personal-api-key>")

if x.is_authenticated():
    print("we are authenticated")

Additional authentication parameters

WeTransfer asks officially for a valid "domain_user_id"/"user_identifier" in their API documentation, but in practise, it works perfectly without providing it.

from wetransfer import TransferApi

x = TransferApi("<my-very-personal-api-key>", 
                user_identifier="81940232-9857-4cf7-b685-7a404faf5205")

print(x.upload_file("test upload", "test.zip"))
# "https://we.tl/t-ajQpdqGxco"

Unit tests

The package has a number of tests. You can run the tests by running the command python setup.py test. Please make sure you have defined the environment variable WE_API_KEY, otherwise all tests will fail. See 'Usage' above to see how you can obtain a key. You can set the key in a shell like so:

export WE_API_KEY=WvMlogNaWLubua6S5iuA5tRk6ZZDqwh6yaxOpGNa

This is an invalid key, so make sure to use your own key.

Please note that the tests actually upload files, and this may take a while (depending on your internet connection). Also, running the tests counts toward your API key usage, so bear this in mind.
