SCP to remote server

I would like to use the Share sheet to send a photo to a remote server. The following script is my attempt but clearly my use of appex.get_image is wrong but it also fails with appex.get_filepath. How do I properly specify the file from the sharesheet for the sftp.put? I'd also like it to work if I select multiple photos.
import appex hostname = 'ipaddress' password = 'password' source = appex.get_image() dest = 'destfilepath' username = "username" port = 22 try: t = paramiko.Transport((hostname, port)) t.connect(username=username, password=password) sftp = paramiko.SFTPClient.from_transport(t) a = sftp.put(source, dest) finally: t.close()

@ihf try this, not tested
import paramiko import appex import os hostname = 'xxxxx' password = 'yyyyy' source = appex.get_images() dest = 'xxx' username = "zzzzz" port = 22 try: t = paramiko.Transport((hostname, port)) t.connect(username=username, password=password) sftp = paramiko.SFTPClient.from_transport(t) path = 'temp.jpg' i = 0 for im in source: im.save(path, quality=95) a = sftp.put(path, dest+str(i)+'.jpg') os.remove(path) i += 1 finally: t.close()
Edit: tested and corrected
Please, in the future, insert our code between two lines of triple back-quotes

@cvp Thanks very much! I kept thinking there must be a way to get the image using the share sheet without first saving it into Pythonista and then deleting it but I guess not.
@ihf I only save as a local file due to the sftp put command but perhaps it could be possible to send the image as binary data. To be investigated if needed.
@ihf putfo seems to allow to put a file-like object

It is possible to get a file handle to a video asset. I haven't looked, but I suspect something might exist for photos.
@ihf use this, without passing via a file:
b = io.BytesIO() im.save(b, format='JPEG', quality=95) b.seek(0) a = sftp.putfo(b, dest+str(i)+'.jpg') #im.save(path, quality=95) #a = sftp.put(path, dest+str(i)+'.jpg') #os.remove(path)
@JonB with the share sheet, you don't receive an asset but a PIL image
@ihf better...if you use
source = appex.get_images_data()
Then this is sufficient because source = array of image in bytes
b = io.BytesIO(im) a = sftp.putfo(b, dest+str(i)+'.jpg')
