Python module and tools for communicating in the Assuan protocol.

Project description

Python module and tools for communicating in the Assuan protocol.

There are a number of GnuPG wrappers for python out there, but they mostly work via the gpg executable. This is an attempt to cut to the chase and speak directly to gpgme-tool (source) over a well-defined socket protocol.

Installation

Packages

Gentoo

I’ve packaged pyassuan for Gentoo. You need layman and my wtk overlay. Install with:

# emerge -av app-portage/layman
# layman --add wtk
# emerge -av dev-python/pyassuan

Dependencies

pyassuan is a simple package with no external dependencies outside the Python 3 standard library.

Installing by hand

pyassuan is available as a Git repository:

$ git clone git://tremily.us/pyassuan.git

See the homepage for details. To install the checkout, run the standard:

$ python setup.py install

Usage

Checkout the docstrings and the examples in bin.

Testing

Run the internal unit tests using nose:

$ nosetests --with-doctest --doctest-tests pyassuan

If a Python-3-version of nosetests is not the default on your system, you may need to try something like:

$ nosetests-3.2 --with-doctest --doctest-tests pyassuan

To test running servers by hand, you can use gpg-connect-agent. Despite the name, this program can connect to any Assuan server:

$ gpg-connect-agent --raw-socket name
