Python libraries for the Ceph librados library with use cython instead of ctypes

This a standalone library initially comes from this Ceph PR

But can be built against older version of Ceph from 0.94.X (hammer) to 11.0.X (perhaps more not tested)

(For firefly support use branch stable/1.x or version < 2.0)

This is designed for application that want to use a recent python-rados API without upgrading the whole ceph cluster.

Rados C handles provided by this library can’t be used with the ceph or librbdpy.

The API of this python lib will be keep in sync with the upstream Ceph API.



$ sudo apt-get install cython librados2 librados-dev

Then, at the command line:

$ pip install cradox

Or, if you have virtualenvwrapper installed:

$ mkvirtualenv cradox
$ pip install cradox


import cradox as rados

Functionnal Tests

Ceph packages must be installed, the suite create a temporary Ceph cluster run the tests and destroy it.
