Python brctl wrapper
Pybrctl is a pure Python library for managing bridges. It is a lightwight wrapper for the linux brctl command, included in the bridge-utils package. It requires Python, Linux, and the bridge-utils package.
It was written by Ido Nahshon at Jan 2015, and it was released under the GPL license.
This example shows how to set up a new bridge and remove it:
from pybrctl import BridgeController brctl = BridgeController() b = brctl.addbr("br0") b.addif("eth0") b.addif("eth1") b.setmaxageing(0) brctl.delbr("br0")
