OpenStack Command-line Client

Project description

Latest Version Downloads

OpenStackClient (aka OSC) is a command-line client for OpenStack that brings the command set for Compute, Identity, Image, Network, Object Store and Block Storage APIs together in a single shell with a uniform command structure.

The openstackclient package is a metapackage that installs python-openstackclient and a number of optional plugins all at the same time to simplify the installation of OSC. The major version of openstackclient will always correspond to the major version of python-openstackclient that will be installed.
