Python wrapper for Docker Machine.

Project description

# docker-machine-py

[![Build Status](](

A Python library for the Docker Machine CLI. It does everything the docker-machine command does, but from within Python
– create machines, check status, get ip, run ssh commands, regenerate certificates, etc.

## Installation

The latest stable version is always available on PyPi.

pip install docker-py

## Documentation

[![Documentation Status](](

[Read the full documentation here.](

## Usage

import docker_machine
machine = Machine('my_digitalocean_machine')
if not machine.exists():
machine.create('digitalocean', access_token='my_digitalocean_access_token')

status = machine.status()

### Customizing the client

docker_machine.CLIENT = docker_machine.cli.client.Client(storage_path=None, storage_path=None, tls_ca_cert=None,
tls_ca_key=None, tls_client_cert=None, tls_client_key=None, github_api_token=None, native_ssh=False,

## Using the lower level wrapper

If you need more control or wish to interact with docker-machine exactly as you would from cli you can use the client

import docker_machine
client = Client()
