Packer for python

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 submodule contains objects that map to packer config blocks in the
.pkr.json file that gets generated.
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
