Python Netlink library
Pyroute2 is a pure Python netlink and Linux network configuration library. It requires only Python stdlib, no 3rd party libraries. Later it can change, but the deps tree will remain as simple, as it is possible.
The library provides several modules:
- Netlink protocol implementations (RTNetlink, TaskStats, etc)
- Simple netlink socket object, that can be used in poll/select
- Network configuration module IPRoute provides API that in some way resembles ip/tc functionality
- IPDB is an async transactional database of Linux network settings
make install or pip install pyroute2
Python >= 2.6
The pyroute2 testing framework requires flake8, coverage, nosetests.
