Python lvm bindings

Project Description


lvm2py is a ctypes based binding for lvm’s liblvm2app api. There are some limitations to what it can do compared to the command line options available. For example, the resize of Physical and Logical volumes is not implemented in the api yet. Still, contributions are planned in the near future. This is the first release, tested using LVM 2.2, please report any bugs or suggestions to my github repo in the links below or by e-mail:

You can get reparted using pip to install it from PyPI:
