A CLI front-end to a running salt-api system
Pepper contains a Python library and CLI scripts for accessing a remote salt-api instance.
pepperlib abstracts the HTTP calls to salt-api so existing Python projects can easily integrate with a remote Salt installation just by instantiating a class.
The pepper CLI script allows users to execute Salt commands from computers that are external to computers running the salt-master or salt-minion daemons as though they were running Salt locally. The long-term goal is to add additional CLI scripts maintain the same interface as Salt’s own CLI scripts (salt, salt-run, salt-key, etc).
It does not require any additional dependencies and runs on Python 2.5+ and Python 3. (Python 3 support is new, please file an issue if you encounter trouble.)
pip install salt-pepper
Basic usage is in heavy flux. You can run pepper using the script in %PYTHONHOME%/scripts/pepper (a pepper.cmd wrapper is provided for convenience to Windows users).
export SALTAPI_USER=saltdev SALTAPI_PASS=saltdev SALTAPI_EAUTH=pam pepper '*' test.ping pepper '*' test.kwarg hello=dolly
Examples leveraging the runner client.
pepper --client runner reactor.list pepper --client runner reactor.add event='test/provision/*' reactors='/srv/salt/state/reactor/test-provision.sls'
You can configure pepper through the command line, using environment variables or in a configuration file $HOME/.pepperrc with the following syntax :
[main] SALTAPI_URL=https://localhost:8000/ SALTAPI_USER=saltdev SALTAPI_PASS=saltdev SALTAPI_EAUTH=pam
Please feel free to get involved by sending pull requests or join us on the Salt mailing list or on IRC in #salt or #salt-devel.
This repo follows the same contributing guidelines as Salt and uses separate develop and master branches for in-progress additions and bug-fix changes respectively.
