QNAP NAS - File Station (Code)
Hi, I am a complete novice when it comes to programming, but I do my best to try and pick up new things, and the reason I bought Pythonista was because I saw a github post where someone had posted some python scripts on how to work with a QNAP)
But while I have copied an pasted the content over, into a new folder called QNAP, it does not seem to work ?
I'm particularly interested in one of the python scripts here - > https://github.com/mdhorda/qnap/blob/master/get_sid.py as I want to find a way that it can be run, so it asked me for me password and encodes it for me etc.
Any help would be appreciated

Add these lines to the bottom of
get_sid.pyand run it.
if __name__ == '__main__': import console print(ezEncode(console.password_alert('Enter your password')))
Many thanks !!
Any help you could give me on making the rest of it work would be appreciated..
first you should download all py files in the same dir (site-packages or where you write your qnap program). Then you have to write your program (not in site-packages dir). Btw. I don't own a QNAP so I can't test it...
from filestation import * #and now follow the README.md sample host = 'your_host_or_ip_addr' user = 'your_user' password = 'your_password' filestation = FileStation(host, user, password) shares = filestation.list_share() #and now you should start with list or search command...
edit: First line corrected.

Thanks for the update ;)
Ok, I've copied everything I could from that GitHub post in to a folder called QNAP, and then created a new script with what you had provided above and put that outside.
So I now have a new qnaprun.py file next to the QNAP folder.
However - When I run the qnaprun.py script I get an immediate "syntaxerror : invalid syntax on the first line ? Which is
from filestation import
**** I understand you do not have a QNAP, hence your support is very much appreciated** .
I can't see a * at the end of the first line!?
And if you don't use the site-packages dir, your code have to be in the same dir (QNAP).
I tested it with my localhost and it shows an expected error.
ERROR:root:GET error: http://127.0.0.1:8080/cgi-bin/authLogin.cgi?pwd=eW91cl9wYXNzd29yZA==&user=your_user
So it should work with a Qnap at the other side.
Hi, I have put everything into the same folder now (called Qnap ) but whenever I run that file I continue to get the same syntax error on the first line - yet there is a file in the folder called filestation.py ?
Here is the qnaprun.py
from filestation import #and now follow the README.md sample host = '10.168.1.111' user = 'your_user' password = 'your_password' filestation = FileStation(host, user, password) shares = filestation.list_share() #and now you should start with list or search command...
