paramiko to sftp without keys

Stupid server does not allow installation of ssh keys. This makes file transfers harder to automate from a cron job for example because scp and ssh have no --username --passwd options.

Python can help! I can sftp a whole dir of files to the sftp server with this script. My next task is to make paramiko accept filename extention wildcards. i.e. 'sftp *.csv'

import paramiko
import os

hostname = ''
port = 22
username = 'nucknuck'
password = '05N9289!'
dir_path = 'moo'
local_path = '/home/datasvcs/AIG/moo'

if __name__ == "__main__":
t = paramiko.Transport((hostname, port))
t.connect(username=username, password=password)
sftp = paramiko.SFTPClient.from_transport(t)
files = os.listdir(local_path)
for f in files:
print 'Uploading', f
sftp.put(os.path.join(dir_path, f), f)
