Getting started

Scanning

Scan a file and prints its output:

import asyncio
from aioavast import Avast

@asyncio.coroutine
def scan(item):
    av = Avast()
    yield from av.connect()
    return (yield from av.scan(item))

if __name__ == '__main__':
    loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()
    results = loop.run_until_complete(scan('/bin/ls'))
    print(results)

You can check an url too:

return (yield from av.checkurl('http://python.org'))

Exclude items

There is also a possibility to exclude certain files from being scanned.

import asyncio
from aioavast import Avast

@asyncio.coroutine
def dont_scan(item):
    av = Avast()
    yield from av.connect()
    yield from av.exclude(item)
    return (yield from av.scan(item))

if __name__ == '__main__':
    loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()
    results = loop.run_until_complete(scan('/bin/ls'))
    print(results)

You can retrieve excluded items by:

excluded = yield from av.exclude()

Other methods

You could modify Flags and Packs too.

flags = yield from av.flags()
yield from av.flags("-allfiles")

packs = yield from av.pack()
yield from av.flags("-ole")
