Command line tool for SmugMug
Command line tool for SmugMug, useful for automatically synchronizing a local folder hierarchy with a SmugMug account.
Implemented using the Smugmug V2 API.
Tested with Python 3.5, 3.6, 3.7, 3.8 and 3.9.
pip install smugcli
To use this command line tool, you will need to request your own API key by visiting https://api.smugmug.com/api/developer/apply. Using your key and secret, loging to smugcli using the following command:
$ ./smugcli.py login --key=<key> --secret=<secret>
This is a one time operation. From this point on, smugcli will be able to access
your SmugMug account. To logout, run the command:
$ ./smugcli.py logout
You can list the content of your SmugMug account by doing:
$ ./smugcli.py ls Photography Portfolio Other $ ./smugcli.py ls Photography 2014 2015 2016 $ ./smugcli.py ls Photography/2015 Photoshoot with Dave
Note that smugcli can also be used to access other public SmugMug account by
$ ./smugcli.py ls -u <username>
Folders can be created by using the
$ ./smugcli.py mkdir Photography/2017
Similarily, albums can be created by doing:
$ ./smugcli.py mkalbum 'Photography/2017/My new album'
To upload photos to an album, run:
$ ./smugcli.py upload local/folder/*.jpg 'Photography/2017/My new album'
Finally, the nicest feature of all, you can synchronize a whole local folder
hierarchy to your SmugMug account using the
$ ./smugcli.py sync local/folder remote/folder Creating Folder "remote/folder/2015". Creating Album "remote/folder/2015/2015-08-03, Mary's Wedding". Uploading "local/folder/2015/2015-08-03, Mary's Wedding/DSC_0001.JPG" Uploading "local/folder/2015/2015-08-03, Mary's Wedding/DSC_0002.JPG" Uploading "local/folder/2015/2015-08-03, Mary's Wedding/DSC_0003.JPG" ... Creating Album "remote/folder/2015/2015-09-10, Andy's Photoshoot" Uploading "local/folder/2015/2015-09-10, Andy's Photoshoot/DSC_0043.JPG" Uploading "local/folder/2015/2015-09-10, Andy's Photoshoot/DSC_0052.JPG" ...
The sync command can be re-executed to update the remote Albums in the event that the local files might have been updated. Only the files that changed will be re-uploaded.
Multiple sources can be synced in the same operation, the last argument being the destination folder and the others being the sources:
$ ./smugcli.py sync 2016 2017 2018 remote/folder Syncing: 2016 2017 2018 to SmugMug folder "remote/folder"', ... $ ./smugcli.py sync 201* remote/folder ...
Source files are synced to the destination SmugMug album and source folders are
recursively synced to the destination SmugMug folder. For source folders with a
trailing path delimitor ('/' or '\' depending on OS), only the content of the
folder is synced, skipping the folder itself (equivalent of doing
. This means that
smugcli.py sync src/album dst is equivalent to
smugcli.py sync src/album/ dst/album. If no sources or destinations are specified, smugcli
defaults to syncing the current folder to the SmugMug user's root.
The sync command uses multiple threads to speed-up the file scanning and upload. You may want to tune the number of threads used by SmugCLI depending on your machine's performance. For instance:
$ ./smugcli.py sync local/folder remote/folder --folder_threads=4 --file_threads=8 --upload_threads=2
folder_threads control the number of album folders that are processed in
file_threads specifies the number fo files that are read from disk
and compared with the server side version in parallel.
the number of parallel upload operations allowed when sending content to
SmugMug. Keep in mind that too many or too few threads can be harmful to
performance. Also keep in mind that increasing file_threads or upload_threads
means that more files will be loaded in memory at the same time. If you have
many large video files, loading too many in parallel could hog your system's
When you are happy with the performance using certain thread counts, you may save these preferences so that they'd be used as defaults next time:
$ ./smugcli.py sync --set_defaults --folder_threads=4 --file_threads=8 --upload_threads=2
To exclude paths from the sync operation, run the command:
$ ./smugcli.py ignore local/folder/export-tmp
To undo this operation, you can run:
$ ./smugcli.py include local/folder/export-tmp
Running the tests
PLEASE READ, RUN UNIT TESTS AT YOUR OWN RISKS: smugcli's unit-tests use the
logged-in user account to do run actual commands on SmugMug. All operations
should be performed in a
__smugcli_unit_tests__ subfolder in the SmugMug
account's root. This folder should be deleted automatically when/if the test
completes. If in doubt, do
smugcli.py logout && smugcli.py login and use a
tox to run tests using all supported Python interpreter versions.
Run all tests with all Python versions by running:
To run with only one specific Python version, for instance Python 3.7, do:
$ tox -e py39
Individual tests can be ran by doing:
$ tox -- tests/module[.class_name[.test_name]]
$ tox -e py39 -- tests/end_to_end_test.py # Runs all tests in tests/end_to_end_test.py. $ tox -e py39 -- tests/end_to_end_test.py::EndToEndTest # Runs all tests in class EndToEndTest. $ tox -e py39 -- tests/end_to_end_test.py::EndToEndTest::test_sync # Runs a single test.
Since the unit tests do actual operations on SmugMug, they are fairly slow. To
speed things up during development, an HTTP request cache can be enabled so that
responses from the previous run are replayed instead of re-doing the actual HTTP
requests to SmugMug. To enable this cache, set the
$ REUSE_RESPONSES=True tox -e py39
Windows users can do the equivalent by doing:
C:\smugcli> cmd /C "set REUSE_RESPONSES=True && tox -e py39"
Note that if you change the code such that different HTTP requests are done, you
will have to set
False on the next run to update the
