How to Install

You can install napalm-huawei-vrp with pip:

pip install napalm-huawei-vrp

That will install napalm and huawei_vrp driver currently available.

How to upgrade

You can upgrade napalm-huawei-vrp with pip once the new version released:

pip install --upgrade napalm-huawei-vrp

check the package version.

pip list | grep napalm-huawei-vrp

Quick start

from napalm import get_network_driver
driver = get_network_driver('huawei_vrp')
device = driver(hostname='', username='admin', password='this_is_not_a_secure_password')

# Send Any CLI command
send_command = device.cli(['dis version'])

#  Return general device information
get_facts = device.get_facts()

# other API
