Read and write .netrc files.

Project description

pypi badge travis-ci status

Read and write .netrc files in Python.

tinynetrc uses the netrc module from the standard library under the hood and adds a few improvements:

  • Adds write functionality.
  • Fixes a std lib bug with formatting a .netrc file.*
  • Parses .netrc into dictionary values rather than tuples.

*This bug is fixed in newer versions of Python.

Get it now

pip install tinynetrc

tinynetrc supports Python >= 2.7 or >= 3.5.

Usage

from tinynetrc import Netrc

netrc = Netrc()  # parse ~/.netrc
# Get credentials
netrc['api.heroku.com']['login']
netrc['api.heroku.com']['password']

# Modify an existing entry
netrc['api.heroku.com']['password'] = 'newpassword'
netrc.save()  # writes to ~/.netrc

# Add a new entry
netrc['surge.surge.sh'] = {
    'login': 'sloria1@gmail.com',
    'password': 'secret'
}
netrc.save()

# Removing an new entry
del netrc['surge.surge.sh']
netrc.save()

You can also use Netrc as a context manager, which will automatically save ~/.netrc.

from tinynetrc import Netrc
with Netrc() as netrc:
    netrc['api.heroku.com']['password'] = 'newpassword'
    assert netrc.is_dirty is True
# saved!
