Client for the Gridspot computing service.

Project Description

PyGridspot is a simple python client for the Gridspot API ( It is
intended to make managing gridspot vms easier. Typical usage looks like:

import os
from pygridspot import *

g = Gridspot(api_key='<YOUR API KEY>',\

il = g.get_instances()

for instance in
g.bootstrap(os.path.expanduser('~/.ssh/id_rsa'), instance, '/tmp/')

The above code when executed results in:

aelaguiz$ python
[Instance inst_<INSTANCE_ID> = Running]
[] put: /tmp/ -> /tmp/
[] sudo: chmod +x /tmp/ && /tmp/ && exit
[] out: Ign oneiric-security InRelease
[] out: Ign oneiric InRelease
[] out: Ign oneiric-updates InRelease

The key improvement over a simple REST client is the support for automatic bootstrapping
of the new VMs using the Fabric SSH API to push a setup script and run it on any new VMs.
