A pythonic LDAP to Python object mapper

ldap, object, mapper
pip install ldapom==0.12.1



LDAPom is a pythonic LDAP to Python object mapper. It should work with Python 2.7 and all versions of Python 3.


Because LDAPom uses a real LDAP server for testing, OpenLDAP is required to be installed (i.e. slapd and slapadd have to be in $PATH).

# Install development dependencies
pip install -r dev-requirements.txt
# Run the tests
python tests.py

A note about Unicode strings in Python 2

LDAPom is source-code compatible with both Python 2 and Python 3. However, LDAPom expects unicode strings to be passed to it whenever a string is required.

For Python 2, this means that you should use the unicode type for str-type arguments and the str/bytes type for bytes-type arguments.

In Python 3, everything is exactly as you would expect. str for strings, bytes for binary data. Simple, really.
