Parameters
  • backup_name (str) – The name of the backup to be downloaded.

  • ofile_obj (python file object) – The python file object of the file to which the downloaded data is written to.

  • dest_path (str or pathlib.Path) – The path of the file to which the downloaded data is written to.

Raises
  • TypeError – backup_name must be of str type

  • TypeError – ofile_obj must be a file object

  • TypeError – ofile_obj must be writable

  • TypeError – dest_path must be an instance of str or pathlib.Path

  • TypeError – One of ofile_obj, dest_path must be provided

  • TypeError – Either one of ofile_obj, dest_path must be provided but not both

  • TypeError – ofile_obj must be opened in binary mode to download text/binary files.

The file object ofile_obj must be opened in binary writable mode to download text/binary files.

>>> b = conn.backup()
>>> b.download('20210622-04.48.plb', dest_path='/home/user/downloaded_backups/newbackup')
>>> b = conn.backup()
>>> with open('testfile', 'wb+') as testfile:
...    b.download('20210622-04.48.plb', ofile_obj=testfile)
>>> b.download('20210622-04.48.plb', dest_path='temp_file')

BytesIO objects could also be used to download files.

>>> f = io.BytesIO()
>>> b.download('20210622-04.48.plb', ofile_obj=f)
>>> f.close()
async Backup.upload(backup_name, *, ifile_obj=None, in_path=None)

Upload a specific file. The file from which data to be uploaded is read from can be specified with either a file object opened in binary mode or path of the input file.

Parameters
  • backup_name (str) – The name of the the backup to be uploaded.

  • ifile_obj (python file object) – The file object of the input file to be to be uploaded.

  • in_path (str or pathlib.Path) – The path of the file from which data is to be read for upload.

Raises
  • TypeError – backup_name must be of str type

  • TypeError – in_path must an instance of type str or pathlib.Path

  • TypeError – One of ifile_obj, in_path must be provided

  • TypeError – Either one of ifile_obj, in_path must be provided but not both

  • TypeError – ifile_obj must be a non-None python file object

  • TypeError – ifile_obj must be a readable file

  • TypeError – ifile_obj must be opened in binary mode

  • TypeError – Input file must be a non-empty file

The input file object must be opened in binary mode before calling this method so as to be to upload both text and binary files.

>>> b = conn.backup()
>>> with open('testfile', 'rb') as testfile:
...     b.upload('uploaded_backup.plb', ifile_obj=testfile)
>>> b.upload('uploaded_backup.plb', in_path='test_path')
