Read rpm archive files

Project description

rpmfile

Build Status Actions Status PyPI version

Tools for inspecting RPM files in python. This module is modeled after the tarfile module.

zstd also requires that you are using Python >= 3.5

$ python -m pip install -U zstandard

Example

import rpmfile

with rpmfile.open('file.rpm') as rpm:

    # Inspect the RPM headers
    print(rpm.headers.keys())
    print(rpm.headers.get('arch', 'noarch'))

    # Extract a fileobject from the archive
    fd = rpm.extractfile('./usr/bin/script')
    print(fd.read())

    for member in rpm.getmembers():
        print(member)
