This is a simple library to utilize PushBullet from Python. It doesn't try to do any magic, but tries to be simple to use.

  • Support push to your whole PushBullet account, your devices and your contacts
  • Support pushing of local and remote (urls) files
  • Read your api key from the os environment
  • Use the v2 api
  • Single file, easy to drop in a quick project

Requirements

How to install

You can just download yabpl.py from the repository, and drop it into your project.
Now on PyPI! Install with pip install yapbl

How to use it

Most methods are supported by every class, so for example you can use
.push_note('something', 'something') on a device, a contact or your whole pushbullet account

# Import it
from yapbl import PushBullet

# Create a PushBullet instance
# Obviously replace api_key with your actual Api Key
# You can get one from https://www.pushbullet.com/account
# api_key is optional
# If not present yapbl will search PUSHBULLET_API_KEY in os.environ
p = PushBullet(api_key)

# Get your devices
# It will return an array with your active devices
devices = p.devices()

# Get your contacts
# It will return an array with your active contacts
contacts = p.contacts()

# Pass in only_active=False to get every device/contact
every_devices = p.devices(only_active=False)
every_contacts = p.contacts(only_active=False)

# Send a note to every device/contact
p.push_note('title', 'body')

# Send a note to your first device
devices[0].push_note('title', 'body')

# Send a note to your first contact
contacts[0].push_note('title', 'body')

# You can send links
p.push_link('https://www.pushbullet.com', title='PushBullet', body='Testing')

# Title and body are optional
p.push_link('https://www.pushbullet.com')

# You can push an address
p.push_address('Milan, Italy')

# You can push a list
# The items of the list are an array
p.push_list('Test list', ['first', 'second', 'third', 'fourth'])

# You can send a local file
# Max size is 25MB
p.push_file(open('local.png', 'rb'))

# And you can send a remote url
# There's no size limit for that
p.push_file('https://www.pushbullet.com/img/header-logo.png')

# You can add an optional body to that
p.push_file('https://www.pushbullet.com/img/header-logo.png', body='hi!')

# yapbl will try to guess the correct mimetype based on the filename
# But you can always override that
p.push_file('https://www.pushbullet.com/img/header-logo.png', file_type='image/png')

# You can set a custom filename as well
# Otherwise the actual name will be used
p.push_file('https://www.pushbullet.com/img/header-logo.png' file_name='image.png')

# You can create a new stream device
# device_type is optional and default to 'stream'
p.create_device('nickname')

# You can delete a device or a contact
devices[0].delete()
contacts[0].delete()

# Devices have various proprieties
d = devices[0]
d.iden
d.type
d.created
d.modified
d.active
d.pushable

# Contacts too
c = contacts[0]
c.iden
c.email
c.type

# You can access the full reply with the .json propriety
d.json
c.json

If there is any problem with the connection, yapbl will raise a TypeError.
