python-cyborgclient is a python bindings to the OpenStack Cyborg API.
There's a Python API (the
cyborgclient module), and a
command-line script (
cyborg). Each implements 100% of the
OpenStack Cyborg API.
This code is a fork of Jacobian's python-cloudservers. If you need API support for the Rackspace API solely or the BSD license, you should use that repository. python-cyborgclient is licensed under the Apache License like the rest of OpenStack.

Installing this package gets you a shell command,
cyborg, that you can use to interact with any Rackspace
compatible API (including OpenStack).
You'll need to provide your OpenStack username and password. You can
do this with the
--os-tenant-name params, but it's easier to just set
them as environment variables:
export OS_USERNAME=openstack export OS_PASSWORD=yadayada export OS_TENANT_NAME=myproject
You will also need to define the authentication url with
--os-auth-url and the version of the API with
--os-accelerator-api-version. Or set them as environment
variables as well,
OS_ACCELERATOR_API_VERSION=1. If you are
using Keystone, you need to set the
OS_AUTH_URL to the
export OS_AUTH_URL=http://controller:5000/v3 export OS_ACCELERATOR_API_VERSION=1
Since Keystone can return multiple regions in the Service Catalog,
you can specify the one you want with
export OS_REGION_NAME). It defaults to the first in the
You'll find complete documentation on the shell by running
There's also a complete Python API, but it has not yet been documented.
Quick-start using keystone:
# pass auth plugin and session to Client init. # service_parameters contains servive_name, service_type, interface and # region name. >>> from cyborgclient.v1 import client >>> nt = client.Client(auth=auth,session=_SESSION,**service_parameters) >>> nt.accelerators.list() [...]
