txtorcon
========

- **docs**: https://txtorcon.readthedocs.org or http://timaq4ygg2iegci7.onion
- **code**: https://github.com/meejah/txtorcon
- ``torsocks git clone git://timaq4ygg2iegci7.onion/txtorcon.git``
- MIT-licensed;
- Python 2.7, PyPy 5.0.0+, Python 3.4+;
- depends on
`Twisted`_,
`Automat <https://github.com/glyph/automat>`_,
(and the `ipaddress <https://pypi.python.org/pypi/ipaddress>`_ backport for non Python 3)

.. caution::

Several large, new features have landed on master. If you're working
directly from master, note that some of these APIs may change before
the next release.


Ten Thousand Feet
-----------------

txtorcon is an implementation of the `control-spec
<https://gitweb.torproject.org/torspec.git/blob/HEAD:/control-spec.txt>`_
for `Tor <https://www.torproject.org/>`_ using the `Twisted`_
networking library for `Python <http://python.org/>`_.

This is useful for writing utilities to control or make use of Tor in
event-based Python programs. If your Twisted program supports
endpoints (like ``twistd`` does) your server or client can make use of
Tor immediately, with no code changes. Start your own Tor or connect
to one and get live stream, circuit, relay updates; read and change
config; monitor events; build circuits; create onion services;
etcetera (`ReadTheDocs <https://txtorcon.readthedocs.org>`_).


Some Possibly Motivational Example Code
---------------------------------------

`download <examples/readme.py>`_
(also `python3 style <examples/readme3.py>`_)

.. code:: python

from twisted.internet.task import react
from twisted.internet.defer import inlineCallbacks
from twisted.internet.endpoints import UNIXClientEndpoint
import treq
import txtorcon

@react
@inlineCallbacks
def main(reactor):
tor = yield txtorcon.connect(
reactor,
UNIXClientEndpoint(reactor, "/var/run/tor/control")
)

print("Connected to Tor version {}".format(tor.version))

url = 'https://www.torproject.org:443'
print("Downloading {}".format(url))
resp = yield treq.get(url, agent=tor.web_agent())

print(" {} bytes".format(resp.length))
data = yield resp.text()
print("Got {} bytes:\n{}\n[...]{}".format(
len(data),
data[:120],
data[-120:],
))

print("Creating a circuit")
state = yield tor.create_state()
circ = yield state.build_circuit()
yield circ.when_built()
print(" path: {}".format(" -> ".join([r.ip for r in circ.path])))

print("Downloading meejah's public key via above circuit...")
resp = yield treq.get(
'https://meejah.ca/meejah.asc',
agent=circ.web_agent(reactor, tor.config.socks_endpoint(reactor)),
)
data = yield resp.text()
print(data)



Try It Now On Debian/Ubuntu
---------------------------

For example, serve some files via an onion service (*aka* hidden
service):

.. code-block:: shell-session

$ sudo apt-get install --install-suggests python-txtorcon
$ twistd -n web --port "onion:80" --path ~/public_html
