An easy to use libssh wrapper to execute commands on a remote server via SSH with Python

Project Description

pystassh

An easy to use libssh wrapper to execute commands on a remote server via SSH with Python.

Installation

Just use pip to install the package:

pip install pystassh

pystassh is working with python 3+ and pypy.

Requirements

pystassh is using libssh to work, you will have to install the library before using pystassh. Only version 0.7.3 was used during the development, but versions 0.5 and above should work fine as well with pystassh. Visit libssh’s official website for more information. libffi-dev is also required by the cffi module.

On Debian and Ubuntu:

apt-get install libssh-4 libffi-dev

On Fedora:

dnf install libssh libffi-dev

Examples

Running simple commands:

>>> from pystassh import Session
>>> with Session('remote_host.org', username='foo', password='baz') as ssh_session:
...     res = ssh_session.execute('whoami')
>>> res.stdout
'foo'

Handling errors:

>>> from pystassh import Session
>>> with Session('remote_host.org', username='foo', password='baz') as ssh_session:
...     res = ssh_session.execute('whoam')
>>> res.stderr
'bash: whoam : command not found'

Running multiple commands:

>>> from pystassh import Session
>>> with Session('remote_host.org', username='foo', password='baz') as ssh_session:
...     ssh_session.execute('echo "bar" > /tmp/foo')
...     res = ssh_session.execute('cat /tmp/foo')
>>> res.stdout
'bar'

Use a session without a with block:

>>> from pystassh import Session
>>> ssh_session = Session('remote_host.org', username='foo', password='baz')
>>> ssh_session.connect()
>>> res = ssh_session.execute('whoami')
>>> res.stdout
'foo'
>>> ssh_session.disconnect()
