ftplib --- FTP protocol client

Code source : Lib/ftplib.py


Ce module définit la classe FTP et quelques éléments associés. La classe FTP implémente le côté client du protocole FTP. Vous pouvez l'utiliser pour écrire des programmes Python qui effectuent diverses tâches automatisées telles que la synchronisation d'autres serveurs FTP. Il est aussi utilisé par le module urllib.request pour gérer les URL qui utilisent FTP. Pour plus d'informations sur FTP (File Transfer Protocol), voir la RFC 959.

L'encodage par défaut est UTF-8, voir la RFC 2640.

Availability: not WASI.

This module does not work or is not available on WebAssembly. See Plateformes WebAssembly for more information.

Reference

FTP objects

class ftplib.FTP(host='', user='', passwd='', acct='', timeout=None, source_address=None, *, encoding='utf-8')

Return a new instance of the FTP class.

Paramètres:
  • host (str) -- The hostname to connect to. If given, connect(host) is implicitly called by the constructor.

  • user (str) -- The username to log in with (default: 'anonymous'). If given, login(host, passwd, acct) is implicitly called by the constructor.

  • passwd (str) -- The password to use when logging in. If not given, and if passwd is the empty string or "-", a password will be automatically generated.

  • acct (str) -- Account information to be used for the ACCT FTP command. Few systems implement this. See RFC-959 for more details.

  • timeout (float | None) -- A timeout in seconds for blocking operations like connect() (default: the global default timeout setting).

  • source_address (tuple | None) -- A 2-tuple (host, port) for the socket to bind to as its source address before connecting.

  • encoding (str) -- The encoding for directories and filenames (default: 'utf-8').

La classe FTP peut s'utiliser avec l'instruction with, p. ex. :

>>> from ftplib import FTP
>>> with FTP("ftp1.at.proftpd.org") as ftp:
...     ftp.login()
...     ftp.dir()
... 
'230 Anonymous login ok, restrictions apply.'

Modifié dans la version 3.2: La prise en charge de l'instruction with a été ajoutée.

Modifié dans la version 3.3: source_address parameter was added.

Modifié dans la version 3.9: If the timeout parameter is set to be zero, it will raise a ValueError to prevent the creation of a non-blocking socket. The encoding parameter was added, and the default was changed from Latin-1 to UTF-8 to follow RFC 2640.

Several FTP methods are available in two flavors: one for handling text files and another for binary files. The methods are named for the command which is used followed by lines for the text version or binary for the binary version.

Les instances de la classe FTP possèdent les méthodes suivantes :

set_debuglevel(level)

Set the instance's debugging level as an int. This controls the amount of debugging output printed. The debug levels are:

  • 0 (default): No debug output.

  • 1: Produce a moderate amount of debug output, generally a single line per request.

  • 2 or higher: Produce the maximum amount of debugging output, logging each line sent and received on the control connection.

connect(host='', port=0, timeout=None, source_address=None)

Connect to the given host and port. This function should be called only once for each instance; it should not be called if a host argument was given when the FTP instance was created. All other FTP methods can only be called after a connection has successfully been made.

Paramètres:
  • host (str) -- The host to connect to.

  • port (int) -- The TCP port to connect to (default: 21, as specified by the FTP protocol specification). It is rarely needed to specify a different port number.

  • timeout (float | None) -- A timeout in seconds for the connection attempt (default: the global default timeout setting).

  • source_address (tuple | None) -- A 2-tuple (host, port) for the socket to bind to as its source address before connecting.

Raises an auditing event ftplib.connect with arguments self, host, port.

Modifié dans la version 3.3: source_address parameter was added.

getwelcome()

Return the welcome message sent by the server in reply to the initial connection. (This message sometimes contains disclaimers or help information that may be relevant to the user.)

login(user='anonymous', passwd='', acct='')

Log on to the connected FTP server. This function should be called only once for each instance, after a connection has been established; it should not be called if the host and user arguments were given when the FTP instance was created. Most FTP commands are only allowed after the client has logged in.

Paramètres:
  • user (str) -- The username to log in with (default: 'anonymous').

  • passwd (str) -- The password to use when logging in. If not given, and if passwd is the empty string or "-", a password will be automatically generated.

  • acct (str) -- Account information to be used for the ACCT FTP command. Few systems implement this. See RFC-959 for more details.

abort()

Abort a file transfer that is in progress. Using this does not always work, but it's worth a try.

sendcmd(cmd)

Send a simple command string to the server and return the response string.

Raises an auditing event ftplib.sendcmd with arguments self, cmd.

voidcmd(cmd)

Send a simple command string to the server and handle the response. Return the response string if the response code corresponds to success (codes in the range 200--299). Raise error_reply otherwise.

Raises an auditing event ftplib.sendcmd with arguments self, cmd.

retrbinary(cmd, callback, blocksize=8192, rest=None)

Retrieve a file in binary transfer mode.

Paramètres:
  • cmd (str) -- An appropriate STOR command: "STOR filename".

  • callback (callable) -- A single parameter callable that is called for each block of data received, with its single argument being the data as bytes.

  • blocksize (int) -- The maximum chunk size to read on the low-level socket object created to do the actual transfer. This also corresponds to the largest size of data that will be passed to callback. Defaults to 8192.

  • rest (int) -- A REST command to be sent to the server. See the documentation for the rest parameter of the transfercmd() method.

retrlines(cmd, callback=None)

Retrieve a file or directory listing in the encoding specified by the encoding parameter at initialization. cmd should be an appropriate RETR command (see retrbinary()) or a command such as LIST or NLST (usually just the string 'LIST'). LIST retrieves a list of files and information about those files. NLST retrieves a list of file names. The callback function is called for each line with a string argument containing the line with the trailing CRLF stripped. The default callback prints the line to sys.stdout.

set_pasv(val)

Enable "passive" mode if val is true, otherwise disable passive mode. Passive mode is on by default.

storbinary(cmd, fp, blocksize=8192, callback=None, rest=None)

Store a file in binary transfer mode.

Paramètres:
  • cmd (str) -- An appropriate STOR command: "STOR filename".

  • fp (file object) -- A file object (opened in binary mode) which is read until EOF, using its read() method in blocks of size blocksize to provide the data to be stored.

  • blocksize (int) -- The read block size. Defaults to 8192.

  • callback (callable) -- A single parameter callable that is called for each block of data sent, with its single argument being the data as bytes.

  • rest (int) -- A REST command to be sent to the server. See the documentation for the rest parameter of the transfercmd() method.

Modifié dans la version 3.2: The rest parameter was added.

storlines(cmd, fp, callback=None)

Store a file in line mode. cmd should be an appropriate STOR command (see storbinary()). Lines are read until EOF from the file object fp (opened in binary mode) using its readline() method to provide the data to be stored. callback is an optional single parameter callable that is called on each line after it is sent.

transfercmd(cmd, rest=None)

Initiate a transfer over the data connection. If the transfer is active, send an EPRT or PORT command and the transfer command specified by cmd, and accept the connection. If the server is passive, send an EPSV or PASV command, connect to it, and start the transfer command. Either way, return the socket for the connection.

If optional rest is given, a REST command is sent to the server, passing rest as an argument. rest is usually a byte offset into the requested file, telling the server to restart sending the file's bytes at the requested offset, skipping over the initial bytes. Note however that the transfercmd() method converts rest to a string with the encoding parameter specified at initialization, but no check is performed on the string's contents. If the server does not recognize the REST command, an error_reply exception will be raised. If this happens, simply call transfercmd() without a rest argument.

ntransfercmd(cmd, rest=None)

Like transfercmd(), but returns a tuple of the data connection and the expected size of the data. If the expected size could not be computed, None will be returned as the expected size. cmd and rest means the same thing as in transfercmd().

mlsd(path='', facts=[])

List a directory in a standardized format by using MLSD command (RFC 3659). If path is omitted the current directory is assumed. facts is a list of strings representing the type of information desired (e.g. ["type", "size", "perm"]). Return a generator object yielding a tuple of two elements for every file found in path. First element is the file name, the second one is a dictionary containing facts about the file name. Content of this dictionary might be limited by the facts argument but server is not guaranteed to return all requested facts.

Added in version 3.3.

nlst(argument[, ...])

Renvoie une liste de noms de fichiers comme celle que renvoie la commande NLST. Le paramètre optionnel argument est une liste de dossiers (la valeur par défaut est le répertoire courant du serveur). Plusieurs paramètres peuvent être utilisés pour passer des paramètres non standards à la commande NLST.

Note

La commande mlsd() offre une meilleure API si votre serveur sait la gérer.

dir(argument[, ...])

Produce a directory listing as returned by the LIST command, printing it to standard output. The optional argument is a directory to list (default is the current server directory). Multiple arguments can be used to pass non-standard options to the LIST command. If the last argument is a function, it is used as a callback function as for retrlines(); the default prints to sys.stdout. This method returns None.

Note

La commande mlsd() offre une meilleure API si votre serveur sait la gérer.

rename(fromname, toname)

Renomme le fichier portant le nom fromname en toname sur le serveur.

delete(filename)

Remove the file named filename from the server. If successful, returns the text of the response, otherwise raises error_perm on permission errors or error_reply on other errors.

cwd(pathname)

Set the current directory on the server.

mkd(pathname)

Crée un nouveau dossier sur le serveur.

pwd()

Renvoie le chemin d'accès au répertoire courant sur le serveur.

rmd(dirname)

Supprime le dossier portant le nom dirname sur le serveur.

size(filename)

Request the size of the file named filename on the server. On success, the size of the file is returned as an integer, otherwise None is returned. Note that the SIZE command is not standardized, but is supported by many common server implementations.

quit()

Send a QUIT command to the server and close the connection. This is the "polite" way to close a connection, but it may raise an exception if the server responds with an error to the QUIT command. This implies a call to the close() method which renders the FTP instance useless for subsequent calls (see below).

close()

Close the connection unilaterally. This should not be applied to an already closed connection such as after a successful call to quit(). After this call the FTP instance should not be used any more (after a call to close() or quit() you cannot reopen the connection by issuing another login() method).

FTP_TLS objects

class ftplib.FTP_TLS(host='', user='', passwd='', acct='', *, context=None, timeout=None, source_address=None, encoding='utf-8')

An FTP subclass which adds TLS support to FTP as described in RFC 4217. Connect to port 21 implicitly securing the FTP control connection before authenticating.

Note

The user must explicitly secure the data connection by calling the prot_p() method.

Paramètres:
  • host (str) -- The hostname to connect to. If given, connect(host) is implicitly called by the constructor.

  • user (str) -- The username to log in with (default: 'anonymous'). If given, login(host, passwd, acct) is implicitly called by the constructor.

  • passwd (str) -- The password to use when logging in. If not given, and if passwd is the empty string or "-", a password will be automatically generated.

  • acct (str) -- Account information to be used for the ACCT FTP command. Few systems implement this. See RFC-959 for more details.

  • context (ssl.SSLContext) -- An SSL context object which allows bundling SSL configuration options, certificates and private keys into a single, potentially long-lived, structure. Please read Security considerations for best practices.

  • timeout (float | None) -- A timeout in seconds for blocking operations like connect() (default: the global default timeout setting).

  • source_address (tuple | None) -- A 2-tuple (host, port) for the socket to bind to as its source address before connecting.

  • encoding (str) -- The encoding for directories and filenames (default: 'utf-8').

Added in version 3.2.

Modifié dans la version 3.3: Added the source_address parameter.

Modifié dans la version 3.4: The class now supports hostname check with ssl.SSLContext.check_hostname and Server Name Indication (see ssl.HAS_SNI).

Modifié dans la version 3.9: If the timeout parameter is set to be zero, it will raise a ValueError to prevent the creation of a non-blocking socket. The encoding parameter was added, and the default was changed from Latin-1 to UTF-8 to follow RFC 2640.

Modifié dans la version 3.12: The deprecated keyfile and certfile parameters have been removed.

Voici un exemple de session utilisant la classe FTP_TLS :

>>> ftps = FTP_TLS('ftp.pureftpd.org')
>>> ftps.login()
'230 Anonymous user logged in'
>>> ftps.prot_p()
'200 Data protection level set to "private"'
>>> ftps.nlst()

FTP_TLS class inherits from FTP, defining these additional methods and attributes:

ssl_version

The SSL version to use (defaults to ssl.PROTOCOL_SSLv23).

auth()

Set up a secure control connection by using TLS or SSL, depending on what is specified in the ssl_version attribute.

Modifié dans la version 3.4: The method now supports hostname check with ssl.SSLContext.check_hostname and Server Name Indication (see ssl.HAS_SNI).

ccc()

Revert control channel back to plaintext. This can be useful to take advantage of firewalls that know how to handle NAT with non-secure FTP without opening fixed ports.

Added in version 3.3.

prot_p()

Établit une connexion de données sécurisée.

prot_c()

Établit une connexion de données non sécurisées.
