Low-level library to interact with keepass databases (supports the v.4 format)

Project Description

This library allows you to write entries to a KeePass database

Simple Example

from pykeepass import PyKeePass

# load database
>>> kp = PyKeePass('db.kdbx', password='somePassw0rd')

# find any group by its name
>>> group = kp.find_groups_by_name('social', first=True)

# get the entries in a group
>>> group.entries
[Entry: "social/facebook", Entry: "social/twitter"]

# find any entry by its title
>>> entry = kp.find_entries_by_title('facebook', first=True)

# retrieve the associated password
>>> entry.password
's3cure_p455w0rd'

# update an entry
>>> entry.notes = 'primary facebook account'

# create a new group
>>> group = kp.add_group('email')

# create a new entry
>>> kp.add_entry(group, 'gmail', 'myusername', 'myPassw0rdXX')
Entry: "email/gmail"

# save database
>>> kp.save()

Finding Entries

The supported find commands are listed below

find_entries_by_title (title, regex=False, tree=None, history=False, first=False)

find_entries_by_username (username, regex=False, tree=None, history=False, first=False)

find_entries_by_password (password, regex=False, tree=None, history=False, first=False)

find_entries_by_url (url, regex=False, tree=None, history=False, first=False)

find_entries_by_notes (notes, regex=False, tree=None, history=False, first=False)

find_entries_by_path (path, regex=False, tree=None, history=False, first=False)

where title, username, password, url, notes and path are strings. These functions have an optional regex boolean argument which means to interpret the string as an XSLT style regular expression.

The history (default False) boolean controls whether history entries should be included in the search results.

The first (default False) boolean controls whether to return the first matched item, or a list of matched items.

  • if first=False, the function returns a list of Entry s or [] if there are no matches
  • if first=True, the function returns the first Entry match, or None if there are no matches

entries

a flattened list of all entries in the database

>>> kp.entries
[Entry: "foo_entry", Entry: "foobar_entry", Entry: "social/gmail", Entry: "social/facebook"]

>>> kp.find_entries_by_name('gmail', first=True)
Entry: "social/gmail"

>>> kp.find_entries_by_name('foo.*', regex=True)
[Entry: "foo_entry", Entry: "foobar_entry"]

>>> entry = kp.find_entries_by_url('.*facebook.*', regex=True, first=True)
>>> entry.url
'facebook.com'

>>> kp.find_groups_by_name('social', first=True).entries
[Entry: "social/gmail", Entry: "social/facebook"]

Finding Groups

find_groups_by_name (name, tree=None, regex=False, first=False)

find_groups_by_path (path, tree=None, regex=False, first=False)

where name and path are strings. These functions have an optional regex boolean argument which means to interpret the string as an XSLT style regular expression.

The first (default False) boolean controls whether to return the first matched item, or a list of matched items.

  • if first=False, the function returns a list of Group s or [] if there are no matches
  • if first=True, the function returns the first Group match, or None if there are no matches

root_group

the Root group to the database

groups

a flattened list of all groups in the database

>>> kp.groups
[Group: "foo", Group "foobar", Group: "social", Group: "social/foo_subgroup"]

>>> kp.find_groups_by_name('foo', first=True)
Group: "foo"

>>> kp.find_groups_by_name('foo.*', regex=True)
[Group: "foo", Group "foobar"]

>>> kp.find_groups_by_path('social/.*', regex=True)
[Group: "social/foo_subgroup"]

>>> kp.find_groups_by_name('social', first=True).subgroups
[Group: "social/foo_subgroup"]

>>> kp.root_group
Group: "/"

Adding Entries

add_entry (destination_group, title, username, password, url=None, notes=None, tags=None, icon=None, force_creation=False)

delete_entry (entry) destination_group is a Group instance. entry is an Entry instance. title, username, password, url, notes, tags, icon are strings.

# add a new entry to the Root group
>>> kp.add_entry(kp.root_group, 'testing', 'foo_user', 'passw0rd')
Entry: "testing"

# add a new entry to the social group
>>> group = find_groups_by_name('social', first=True)
>>> entry = kp.add_entry(group, 'testing', 'foo_user', 'passw0rd')
Entry: "testing"

# save the database
>>> kp.save()

# delete an entry
>>> kp.delete_entry(entry)

# save the database
>>> kp.save()

Adding Groups

add_group (destination_group, group_name)

delete_group (group)

destination_group and group are instances of Group. group_name is a string

# add a new group to the Root group
>>> group = kp.add_group(kp.root_group, 'social')

# add a new group to the social group
>>> kp.add_group(group, 'gmail')
Group: "social/gmail"

# save the database
>>> kp.save()

# delete a group
>>> kp.delete_group(group)

# save the database
>>> kp.save()

Miscellaneous

read (filename, password=None, keyfile=None)

where filename, password, and keyfile are strings. filename is the path to the database, password is the master password string, and keyfile is the path to the database keyfile. At least one of password and keyfile is required.

save (filename=None)

where filename is the path of the file to save to. If filename is not given, the path given in read will be used.

set_password (password)

set a master password on the database. password is a string.
