Read and write .netrc files.

Project description

Latest version Travis-CI

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 >= 3.4.


from tinynetrc import Netrc

netrc = Netrc()  # parse ~/.netrc
# Get credentials

# Modify an existing entry
netrc['']['password'] = 'newpassword'  # writes to ~/.netrc

# Add a new entry
netrc[''] = {
    'login': '',
    'password': 'secret'

# Removing an new entry
del netrc['']
