This is a module for handling LDAP operations in Python. Uses libldap2 on Unix platforms and WinLDAP on Microsoft Windows. LDAP entries are mapped to a special Python case-insensitive dictionary, tracking the changes of the dictionary to modify the entry on the server easily.

Supports only Python 3.6 or newer, and LDAPv3.

Features

  • Uses LDAP libraries (OpenLDAP and WinLDAP) written in C for faster processing.
  • Simple pythonic design.
  • Implements an own dictionary-like object for mapping LDAP entries that makes easier to add and modify them.
  • Works with various asynchronous library (like asyncio, gevent).

Requirements for building

  • python3.6-dev or newer
  • libldap2-dev
  • libsasl2-dev
  • libkrb5-dev or heimdal-dev (optional)

Documentation

Documentation is available online_ with a simple tutorial.

Example

Simple search and modify:

.. code:: python

    import bonsai

    client = bonsai.LDAPClient("ldap://localhost")
    client.set_credentials("SIMPLE", user="cn=admin,dc=bonsai,dc=test", password="secret")
    with client.connect() as conn:
        res = conn.search("ou=nerdherd,dc=bonsai,dc=test", 2, "(cn=chuck)")
        res[0]['givenname'] = "Charles"
        res[0]['sn'] = "Carmichael"
        res[0].modify()

Using with asyncio:

.. code:: python3

    import asyncio
    import bonsai

    async def do():
        client = bonsai.LDAPClient("ldap://localhost")
        client.set_credentials("DIGEST-MD5", user="admin", password="secret")
        async with client.connect(is_async=True) as conn:
            res = await conn.search("ou=nerdherd,dc=bonsai,dc=test", 2)
            print(res)
            who = await conn.whoami()
            print(who)

    loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()
    loop.run_until_complete(do())
