A PythonAnywhere API wrapper.


from pythonanywhere_wrapper.client import PythonAnywhere

# If running on a PythonAnywhere terminal, your token and username will
# be discovered automatically. Be sure to setup your API_TOKEN first.

# For information on setting up your API_TOKEN visit
API_TOKEN = "test-token"

# Your PythonAnywhere Username
USER = "test-user"

client = PythonAnywhere(api_key=API_TOKEN, user=USER)



# List all your consoles
response = client.consoles()

# View consoles shared with you
response = client.consoles.shared_with_you()

# Get console by id
response = client.consoles(console_id=123456)

# Kill a console by id
response = client.consoles.delete(console_id=123456)


# Start sharing a file
response = client.files.sharing.create(data={"path": "/path/to/file"})

# Get sharing status by path
response = client.files.sharing(path="/path/to/file")

# Stop sharing a file
response = client.files.sharing.delete(path="/path/to/file")

# List contents of a directory and subdirectories
response = client.files.tree(path="/path/to/directory")


# List all webapps
response = client.webapps()

# Create a new webapp

        "domain_name": "",
        "python_version": "python27",

# Get webapp by domain name
response = client.webapps(domain_name="")

# Modify config of a webapp. Follow with reloading webapp.
response = client.webapps.update(

# Delete webapp by domain name
response = client.webapps.delete(domain_name="")

# Reload webapp
response = client.webapps.reload(domain_name="")

Static Files:

# List all static files mappings for a domain
response = client.webapps.static_files(

# Create a new static file mapping for a domain. Reload webapp required.
response = client.webapps.static_files.create(
    domain_name="", data={
        "url": "/static/", "path": "/path/to/static/dir"

# Get static file mapping by id
response = client.webapps.static_files(
    domain_name="", static_id=123

# Modify a static file mapping. Reload webapp required.
response = client.webapps.static_files.update(
    domain_name="", static_id=123, data={
        "url": "/static/", "path": "/path/to/static/dir"
