cat = Catalog("http://localhost:8080/geoserver/")
topp = cat.get_workspace("topp")
shapefile_plus_sidecars = shapefile_and_friends("states")
# shapefile_and_friends should look on the filesystem to find a shapefile
# and related files based on the base path passed in
# shapefile_plus_sidecars == {
#    'shp': 'states.shp',
#    'shx': 'states.shx',
#    'prj': 'states.prj',
#    'dbf': 'states.dbf'

# 'data' is required (there may be a 'schema' alternative later, for creating empty featuretypes)
# 'workspace' is optional (GeoServer's default workspace is used by... default)
# 'name' is required
ft = cat.create_featurestore(name, workspace=topp, data=shapefile_plus_sidecars)
