Python client for Reincubate's ricloud API
This is the sample Python client for Reincubate’s iCloud API.
Refer to the comprehensive iCloud API documentation for a fuller picture of the API’s capabilities, specifications, and benefits.
The library can be installed with a single command:
$ pip install ricloud
The API relies on a set of security credentials, which are stored in an ricloud.ini file. This package ships with a default configuration file which enables limited access to the API for demonstration purposes.
The default credentials can be overridden by creating an override file named .ricloud.ini in the user’s HOME directory. Alternately, a RICLOUD_CONF environment variable can be set, specifying the full path and filename of the configuration file.
[hosts] api_host = https://asapi.reincubate.com stream_host = https://aschannel.reincubate.com [endpoints] account_information = /account/ register_account = /register-account/ task_status = /task-status/ [stream] # Required and supplied by Reincubate stream_endpoint = your-aschannel-stream-name-here [auth] # Required and supplied by Reincubate token = your-ricloud-api-access-token-here [output] output_directory = output [logging] logs_directory = logs time_profile = False [performance] object_store_greenlets = 50
The default ricloud.ini can be found in this repository.
A sample script is included which provides an example of how the API can be used to access a range of datatypes in a way that is compatible with Apple’s 2FA mechanism.
To run the sample script, execute the following command:
$ python -m ricloud firstname.lastname@example.org --password=joshua
