A library for SoftLayer's API
This library provides a simple Python client to interact with SoftLayer’s XML-RPC API.
A command-line interface is also included and can be used to manage various SoftLayer products and services.
Documentation for the Python client is available at http://softlayer.github.io/softlayer-python/.
Additional API documentation can be found on the SoftLayer Development Network:
Install via pip:
$ pip install softlayer
Or you can install from source. Download source and run:
$ python setup.py install
Another (safer) method of installation is to use the published snap. Snaps are available for any Linux OS running snapd, the service that runs and manage snaps. Snaps are “auto-updating” packages and will not disrupt the current versions of libraries and software packages on your Linux-based system. To learn more, please visit: https://snapcraft.io/
To install the slcli snap:
$ sudo snap install slcli
The most up-to-date version of this library can be found on the SoftLayer GitHub public repositories at http://github.com/softlayer.

To report a bug with this library please create an Issue on github.
This library relies on the requests library to make HTTP requests. On Python versions below Python 2.7.9, requests has started emitting a security warning (InsecurePlatformWarning) due to insecurities with creating SSL connections. To resolve this, upgrade to Python 2.7.9+ or follow the instructions here: http://stackoverflow.com/a/29099439.
