pfurl 1.3.7

(Python) Path-File URL comms

Latest Version: 1.3.15.dev0

Overview

This repository provides a curl-like client tool that is also able to perform simple file/directory functions (such as zip/unzip) suitable for remote http transmission:

  • pfurl: a tool to transfer data using HTTP (similar to curl);

pfurl

A client application called pfurl is provided that can be used to speak to both pman and pfioh.

Installation

Installation is relatively straightforward, and we recommend using either python virtual environments or docker.

Python Virtual Environment

On Ubuntu, install the Python virtual environment creator

sudo apt install virtualenv

Then, create a directory for your virtual environments e.g.:

mkdir ~/python-envs

You might want to add to your .bashrc file these two lines:

export WORKON_HOME=~/python-envs
source /usr/local/bin/virtualenvwrapper.sh

Then you can source your .bashrc and create a new Python3 virtual environment:

source .bashrc
mkvirtualenv --python=python3 python_env

To activate or “enter” the virtual env:

workon python_env

To deactivate virtual env:

deactivate

Using the fnndsc/ubuntu-python3 dock

We provide a slim docker image with python3 based off Ubuntu. If you want to play inside this dock and install pman manually, do

docker pull fnndsc/ubuntu-python3

This docker has an entry point python3. To enter the dock at a different entry and install your own stuff:

docker run -ti --entrypoint /bin/bash fnndsc/ubuntu-python3

Now, install pman and friends using pip

apt update && \
apt install -y libssl-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev librtmp-dev && \
pip install pfurl

If you do the above, remember to commit your changes to the docker image otherwise they’ll be lost when you remove the dock instance!

 docker commit <container-ID> local/ubuntu-python3-pman

where ``<container-ID>`` is the ID of the above container.

Using the fnndsc/pman dock

The easiest option however, is to just use the fnndsc/pman dock.

docker pull fnndsc/pfurl

and then run

docker run --name pfurl fnndsc/pfurl --VERB POST --raw --http localhost:5055/api/v1/cmd --httpResponseBodyParse --msg '{}'

where the msg contains JSON syntax instructions of what to perform.
