Packer for python

Project description


I built this module to help automate packer builds in python code. I found it to be nearly impossible to scale packer builds for a pipeline or automated environment without forking the code from packer's golang implementation.



pip install PackerBuilder (PyPi)


PackerBuilder: This class is extendable (as shown in packerpy.examples.ami_builder) in order to allow for a custom implementation of any packer builder plugin. The PackerBuilder will generate a json packer configuration file that can be executed by the packer cli.

PackerClient: This is a utility class built to interact with the packer cli.

models: The models submodule contains objects that map to packer config blocks in the .pkr.json file that gets generated.
