You are looking at the documentation for the pre-release 3.x with breaking changes.
The current stable version is 2.x.
|Version:||3.0, Date: Mar 04, 2019|
- Comes bundled with a server and a file system provider, so we can share a directory right away from the command line.
- Designed to run behind any WSGI compliant server.
- Tested with different clients on different platforms (Windows, Linux, Mac).
- Supports online editing of MS Office documents.
- Contains a simple web browser interface.
- SSL support
- Support for authentication using Basic or Digest scheme.
- Passes the litmus test suite.
- Open architecture allows to Writing Custom Providers (i.e. storage, locking, authentication, virtual file systems, …).
- WsgiDAV is a refactored version of PyFileServer written by Ho Chun Wei.
Release 3.0 is pretty new and introduces some refactorings and breaking changes.
Wimps may prefer using 2.x for a more stable release ;-)
Releases are hosted on PyPI. Install WsgiDAV (and a server) like:
$ pip install cheroot wsgidav
MS Windows users that only need the command line interface may prefer the MSI installer.
To serve the
/tmp folder as WebDAV
/ share with anonyoums read-write
access, simply run:
$ wsgidav --host=0.0.0.0 --port=80 --root=/tmp --auth=anonymous
Then open http://HOST/ in your browser or pass this URL to another WebDAV-aware client, such as MS Word, macOS Finder, Windows File Explorer, …
On Linux we can enforce authentication against known users (e.g.
/etc/shadow) like so:
$ wsgidav --host=0.0.0.0 --port=80 --root=/tmp --auth=pam-login
On Windows we can enforce authentication against known users (e.g. Windows NT Domain Controller) like so:
> wsgidav --host=0.0.0.0 --port=80 --root=/tmp --auth=nt
There is much more to configure. Read this docs to find out.
WsgiDAV comes with a web interface and was tested with different clients (Windows File Explorer and drive mapping, MS Office, Ubuntu, Mac OS X, …).
