PyGridspot 0.0.2

Client for the Gridspot computing service.

===========
PyGridspot
===========

PyGridspot is a simple python client for the Gridspot API www.gridspot.com). It is
intended to make managing gridspot vms easier. Typical usage looks like:

import os
from pygridspot import *

g = Gridspot(api_key='<your api="" key="">',\
cache='file',\
cache_file='cache.dat')

il = g.get_instances()

for instance in il.new:
g.bootstrap(os.path.expanduser('~/.ssh/id_rsa'), instance, '/tmp/test.sh')

The above code when executed results in:

aelaguiz$ python test.py
[Instance inst_<instance_id> = Running]
[69.4.239.72:64333] put: /tmp/test.sh -> /tmp/test.sh
[69.4.239.72:64333] sudo: chmod +x /tmp/test.sh && /tmp/test.sh && exit

The key improvement over a simple REST client is the support for automatic bootstrapping
of the new VMs using the Fabric SSH API to push a setup script and run it on any new VMs.
