A Parallelized file/url syncing package

pip install parallel-sync==1.14



parallel_sync is a python package for uploading or downloading files using multiprocessing and md5 checks on Linux. The files can be transferred from a remote linux host or a url.

How to install: pip install parallel_sync

Requirement: - Python >=2.6 Linux Only! - ssh service must be installed and running. - To use the rsync features, you need to have rsync installed. - to use the url module, you need to install wget on the target machine - To untar/unzip files you need tar/zip packages installed

Benefits: - Very fast file transfer (parallelized) - If the file exists and is not changed, it will not waste time copying it - You can specify retries in case you have a bad connection - It can handle large files

In most of the examples below, you can specify parallelism and tries which allow you to parallelize tasks and retry upon failure. By default parallelism is set to 10 workers.

Upstream Example:

` from parallel_sync import rsync creds = {'user': 'myusername', 'key':'~/.ssh/id_rsa', 'host':''} rsync.upload('/tmp/x', '/tmp/y', creds=creds, exclude=['*.pyc', '*.sh']) `

Downstream Example:

` from parallel_sync import rsync creds = {'user': 'myusername', 'key':'~/.ssh/id_rsa', 'host':''} rsync.download('/tmp/y', '/tmp/z', creds=creds) `

File Download Example:


from parallel_sync import wget urls = ['http://something.png', 'http://somthing.tar.gz', 'http://somthing.zip'] wget.download('/tmp', urls=urls, extract=True)

# download locally with a specified filename:

wget.download(LOCAL_TARGET, 'http://something/else/file.zip',
filenames='x.zip', extract=True)

# download on a remote machine:

creds = {'user': 'myusername', 'key':'~/.ssh/id_rsa', 'host':''} wget.download('/tmp', urls=urls, creds=creds)

# To untar or unzip compressed files after download: wget.download('/tmp', urls=urls, creds=creds, extract=True) ```

Example extracting a file on a remote host:

` creds = {'user': 'myusername', 'key':'~/.ssh/id_rsa', 'host':''} from parallel_sync import compression compression.extract('/tmp/x.tar.gz', creds=creds) `

Example checking that a files exists:

``` from parallel_sync import executor if executor.path_exists(path, creds):

print "yes"


Example finding files or directories:

``` from parallel_sync import executor

files = executor.find_files(dir_path, creds, include=['.png', '.jpg'])

dirs = executor.find_dirs(dir_path, creds, include=['test'])

# Note that if creds is None, then it will search on localhost ```

Example Running commands:

``` from parallel_sync import executor

cmds = ['mv /tmp/x /tmp/y', 'touch /tmp/z']

executor.run(cmds, creds=creds, parallelism=len(cmds))

print executor.run('pwd', creds=creds, curr_dir='/tmp') ```

Example using parallel_sync within fabric:

``` from fabric.api import env

from parallel_sync import rsync

rsync.upload('/tmp/x', '/tmp/y', creds=env)

rsync.download('/tmp/y', '/tmp/z', creds=env) ```

To transfer files locally:


from parallel_sync import rsync

rsync.copy('/tmp/x', '/tmp/y', exclude=['*.pyc'], parallelism=10, extract=False, validate=False) ```

where /tmp/x is a directory.
