Simple wrapper client for the Vilfo router API
This is the initial version of a python module and API client for the Vilfo router. The module is targeted towards compatibility with Python3.
Currently, the client is quite limited but will be extended with support for additional endpoints over time.
vilfo/client.py for additional information about available methods. A short usage example is available in this README as well.
Please note that this software is not affiliated with Vilfo AB, is not an official client for the Vilfo router API and the developers take no legal responsibility for the functionality or security of your Vilfo router. Support is only offered on a community basis.
Information about the Vilfo router and API
You can find more information about the Vilfo router on www.vilfo.com.
From there you can also find information about the API in the form of the official API documentation: https://www.vilfo.com/apidocs/
The preferred installation method is by using
pip install vilfo-api-client
The API client is available through the class
vilfo.Client. To establish a connection and make the API calls, you will need the hostname or IP of your router (
admin.vilfo.com is the default one) as well as an API access token.
Obtaining an access token
Information about how to get an access token is described in the official API documentation: https://www.vilfo.com/apidocs/#header-authorization
Note: In version 1.0.13 of the Vilfo firmware, access tokens are invalidated when a new login to the web UI is made. To prevent web UI logins from interfering with the API calls, you can create a separate user solely for API purposes and use its access token.
Creating the client and making calls
This is a basic sample of how you can use the
import vilfo client = vilfo.Client( host='admin.vilfo.com', token='YOUR_ACCESS_TOKEN' ) # Ping to check if router is online result = client.ping() print(result) try: # Get the last reported load result = client.get_load() print(result) # Get a list of all devices result = client.get_devices() print(result) # Get a boolean indicating if a device is online or not result = client.is_device_online( mac_address='08:00:27:8e:ac:31' ) print(result) # Get detailed information about a specific device result = client.get_device( mac_address='08:00:27:8e:ac:31' ) print(result) except vilfo.exceptions.AuthenticationException: print("Authentication Exception")
Exceptions and error handling
vilfo-api-client library defines a set of exceptions that can be used to handle errors. These exception classes are located under
Additional information about the exceptions will be added and exception and error handling will be improved further.
Minor adjustment in Client constructor to allow for better mocking during testing.
