Python wrapper for Digital Ocean API v2

Latest Version: 0.3.1

Python library for managing your Digital Ocean account API v2

The DigitalOcean API allows you to manage Droplets and resources within the DigitalOcean cloud in a simple, programmatic way using conventional HTTP requests. The endpoints are intuitive and powerful, allowing you to easily make calls to retrieve information or to execute actions.

All of the functionality that you are familiar with in the DigitalOcean control panel is also available through the API, allowing you to script the complex actions that your situation requires.

This library starts with a python wrapper for the API and aims to build tools to make it easier to manage, provision, and deploy to Digital Ocean.

Setup

pip install -U poseidon

To run the unit tests make sure you have the ‘pytest’ module. If not, run

pip install -U pytest

Examples

Setup authentication by generating an API key and exporting it as the value of the “DIGITALOCEAN_API_KEY” environment variable:

export DIGITALOCEAN_API_KEY=<value>

Connect to API

import poseidon.api as po
client = po.connect() # or po.connect(api_key=<KEY>) for custom api key

Create a droplet

image_id = 135123 # replace with your own
droplet = client.droplets.create(name='test', region='sfo1', size='512mb',
                                 image=image_id)

Programmatically create a snapshot

droplet.power_off() # snapshots are only allowed while powered off
droplet.take_snapshot('test-snapshot')

Check that it worked

snapshots = droplet.snapshots() # one of these should be named 'test-snapshot'

Other simple droplet commands

droplet.reboot()
droplet.shutdown()
droplet.power_on()
droplet.power_cycle()
droplet.password_reset()
droplet.enable_ipv6()
droplet.disable_backups()
droplet.enable_private_networking()

Droplet commands that take a parameter

droplet.resize('1024mb')
droplet.restore(image_id) # integer
droplet.rebuild(image_id)
droplet.rename('new-name')
droplet.change_kernel(12534)

Delete droplet

droplet.delete()

Keys

# list keys
client.keys.list() # it works

# create a new key
public_key = ("ssh-rsa AAAAB3NzaC1yc2EAAAADAQABAAAAQQDWF7SdoK0JvdjGR/8MHjj"
              "b7qtKVSdqoVZ2bCX0SXdn2pxZitnFjUx+lQ4osMGjOOTE/Hi86qQnFGE8Ym"
              "Sur/LT example")
key = client.keys.create('test-key', public_key)
print rs['public_key']
print rs['name']

# rename the key
client.keys.update(key['id'], 'test-key2')

# delete the key
client.keys.delete(new_id)

Domains

# list domains
client.domains.list() # it works

# create new domain
ip_address = '127.0.0.1'
test = 'b7qtKVSdqoVZ2bCX0SXdn2pxZitnFjUx.com' # must be unique
domain = client.domains.create(test, ip_address)
print domain['name']

# retrieve a domain by name
new_domain = client.domains.get(domain['name'])

# delete a domain by name
client.domains.delete(new_domain['name'])

Regions

client.regions.list()

Sizes

client.sizes.list()

Testing

pip install -U pytest
py.test

Because the test for droplets goes through the exercise of creating a new droplet, modifying it, then finally destroying it, the test takes a long time to run. To only run the other tests, use the “not slow” marker from “pytest”:

~$ py.test -v -m "not slow"

  1. Refactor the result format to allow for easy multipage resultset paging
  2. Additional unit tests
  3. Tools for scaling, provisioning, deployment
