Friendly Python SSH2 interface allowing easy file and directory transfer. This is based on the excellent script from:

I’ve made this an easy installable with one or two additions and some basic testing. This is a really handy script and I wanted to use it elsewhere in a more controlled fashion. The original code was released under LGPL which I’m using for my additions and extension.


This project depends on paramiko which will be installed along with this project via easy_install. For completeness paramiko’s home is here

From the command line you can install this project as follows:

easy_install zoink-sftp

This assumes you’ve installed setuptools first. Alternatively you could download the source code and then do:

cd zoink-sftp
python install

The source code is currently hosted on launchpad under bazaar revision control. If your interested head to the project’s page here

Example Usage

Have a look at zoinksftp/example/ for a basic example of how to drive sftp.
