Pyportal - Dropbox Get file

by grafer01 on Wed Dec 08, 2021 6:42 pm


Just got my Pyportal and I'm trying to follow the guides to download a csv file form a dropbox location so I can parse it and display on my pyportal.

I'm able to do it on my linux machine with the package requests. but I'm running into issues using adafruit_requests because there doesn't seem to be an ability to authenticate.

Does anyone know the equivalent package for the circuitpython that will do the following below? Or can I just place my requests package onto my pyportal and will it work?

Thanks in advance.

import requests as requests
from requests.auth import HTTPBasicAuth
import pandas as pd
import time
import board
from adafruit_pyportal import PyPortal

url = 'https://www.dropbox.com/s/csvfile.csv?dl=1'
db_username = 'tochange'
db_password = 'tochange'

downloaded_file = requests.get(url, auth=HTTPBasicAuth(db_username, db_password))

dest_file = open('/presently-backup.csv', 'wb+')


#df = pd.read_csv('/home/pumpkin/Documents/PyPortal/presently/presently-backup.csv', usecols= ['entryDate','entryContent'])
import csv

with open('/presently-backup.csv', newline='') as f:
    reader = csv.reader(f)
    data = list(reader)

# Using for loop
for i in data:

You can run adafruit_requests right on your pyportal. Is that what you are asking?
