Webdav API

Webdav API is a set of webdav methods of work with cloud storage. This set includes the following methods: check, free, info, list, mkdir, clean, copy, move, download, upload, publish and unpublish.

Configuring the client

Required keys for configuring client connection with WevDAV-server are webdav_hostname and webdav_login, webdav,_password.

import webdav.client as wc
options = {
 'webdav_hostname': "https://webdav.server.ru",
 'webdav_login':    "login",
 'webdav_password': "password"
}
client = wc.Client(options)

When a proxy server you need to specify settings to connect through it.

import webdav.client as wc
options = {
 'webdav_hostname': "https://webdav.server.ru",
 'webdav_login':    "w_login",
 'webdav_password': "w_password",
 'proxy_hostname':  "http://127.0.0.1:8080",
 'proxy_login':     "p_login",
 'proxy_password':  "p_password"
}
client = wc.Client(options)

If you want to use the certificate path to certificate and private key is defined as follows:

import webdav.client as wc
options = {
 'webdav_hostname': "https://webdav.server.ru",
 'webdav_login':    "w_login",
 'webdav_password': "w_password",
 'cert_path':       "/etc/ssl/certs/certificate.crt",
 'key_path':        "/etc/ssl/private/certificate.key"
}
client = wc.Client(options)

Or you want to limit the speed or turn on verbose mode:

options = {
 ...
 'recv_speed' : 3000000,
 'send_speed' : 3000000,
 'verbose'    : True
}
client = wc.Client(options)
recv_speed: rate limit data download speed in Bytes per second. Defaults to unlimited speed.
send_speed: rate limit data upload speed in Bytes per second. Defaults to unlimited speed.
verbose: set verbose mode on/off. By default verbose mode is off.

Synchronous methods

// Checking existence of the resource

client.check("dir1/file1")
client.check("dir1")
// Get information about the resource

client.info("dir1/file1")
client.info("dir1/")
// Check free space

free_size = client.free()
// Get a list of resources

files1 = client.list()
files2 = client.list("dir1")
// Create directory

client.mkdir("dir1/dir2")
// Delete resource

client.clean("dir1/dir2")
// Copy resource

client.copy(remote_path_from="dir1/file1", remote_path_to="dir2/file1")
client.copy(remote_path_from="dir2", remote_path_to="dir3")
// Move resource

client.move(remote_path_from="dir1/file1", remote_path_to="dir2/file1")
client.move(remote_path_from="dir2", remote_path_to="dir3")
// Move resource

client.download_sync(remote_path="dir1/file1", local_path="~/Downloads/file1")
client.download_sync(remote_path="dir1/dir2/", local_path="~/Downloads/dir2/")
// Unload resource

client.upload_sync(remote_path="dir1/file1", local_path="~/Documents/file1")
client.upload_sync(remote_path="dir1/dir2/", local_path="~/Documents/dir2/")
// Publish the resource

link = client.publish("dir1/file1")
link = client.publish("dir2")
// Unpublish resource

client.unpublish("dir1/file1")
client.unpublish("dir2")
// Exception handling

from webdav.client import WebDavException
try:
...
except WebDavException as exception:
...
// Get the missing files

client.pull(remote_directory='dir1', local_directory='~/Documents/dir1')
// Send missing files

client.push(remote_directory='dir1', local_directory='~/Documents/dir1')

Asynchronous methods

// Load resource

kwargs = {
 'remote_path': "dir1/file1",
 'local_path':  "~/Downloads/file1",
 'callback':    callback
}
client.download_async(**kwargs)

kwargs = {
 'remote_path': "dir1/dir2/",
 'local_path':  "~/Downloads/dir2/",
 'callback':    callback
}
client.download_async(**kwargs)
// Unload resource

kwargs = {
 'remote_path': "dir1/file1",
 'local_path':  "~/Downloads/file1",
 'callback':    callback
}
client.upload_async(**kwargs)

kwargs = {
 'remote_path': "dir1/dir2/",
 'local_path':  "~/Downloads/dir2/",
 'callback':    callback
}
client.upload_async(**kwargs)

Resource API

Resource API using the concept of OOP that enables cloud-level resources.

// Get a resource

res1 = client.resource("dir1/file1")
// Work with the resource

res1.rename("file2")
res1.move("dir1/file2")
res1.copy("dir2/file1")
info = res1.info()
res1.read_from(buffer)
res1.read(local_path="~/Documents/file1")
res1.read_async(local_path="~/Documents/file1", callback)
res1.write_to(buffer)
res1.write(local_path="~/Downloads/file1")
res1.write_async(local_path="~/Downloads/file1", callback)

wdc

wdc -a cross-platform utility that provides convenient work with WebDAV-servers right from your console. In addition to full implementations of methods from webdav API, also added methods content sync local and remote directories.

Authentication

  • Basic authentication
$ wdc login https://wedbav.server.ru -p http://127.0.0.1:8080
webdav_login: w_login
webdav_password: w_password
proxy_login: p_login
proxy_password: p_password
success
  • Authorize the application using OAuth token*
$ wdc login https://wedbav.server.ru -p http://127.0.0.1:8080 --token xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
proxy_login: p_login
proxy_password: p_password
success

There are also additional keys --root[-r], --cert-path[-c] and --key-path[-k].

WebDAV-server

The most popular cloud-based repositories that support the Protocol WebDAV can be attributed Yandex.Drive, Dropbox, Google Drive, Box and 4shared. Access to data repositories, operating with access to the Internet. If necessary local locations and cloud storage, you can deploy your own WebDAV-server.

Local WebDAV-server

To deploy a local WebDAV server, using Docker containers quite easily and quickly. To see an example of a local deploymentWebDAV servers can be on the project webdav-server-docker.

Supported methods

Servers free info list mkdir clean copy move download upload
Yandex.Disk + + + + + + + + +
Dropbox - + + + + + + + +
Google Drive - + + + + - - + +
Box + + + + + + + + +
4shared - + + + + - - + +
Webdavserver - + + + + - - + +

Publish and unpublish methods supports only Yandex.Disk.

Configuring connections

To work with cloud storage Dropbox and Google Drive via the WebDAV Protocol, you must use a WebDAV-server DropDAV and DAV-pocket, respectively.

A list of settings for WebDAV servers:

webdav-servers:
 - yandex
     hostname:  https://webdav.yandex.ru
     login:     #login_for_yandex
     password:  #pass_for_yandex
 - dropbox
     hostname:  https://dav.dropdav.com
     login:     #login_for dropdav
     password:  #pass_for_dropdav
 - google
     hostname:  https://dav-pocket.appspot.com
     root:      docso
     login:     #login_for_dav-pocket
     password:  #pass_for_dav-pocket
 - box
     hostname:  https://dav.box.com
     root:      dav
     login:     #login_for_box
     password:  #pass_for_box
 - 4shared
     hostname:  https://webdav.4shared.com
     login:     #login_for_4shared
     password:  #pass_for_4shared

Autocompletion

For macOS, or older Unix systems you need to update bash.

brew install bash
chsh
brew install bash-completion

Autocompletion can be enabled globally

sudo activate-global-python-argcomplete

or locally

#.bashrc
eval "$(register-python-argcomplete wdc)"
