SDK for talking to OpenStack Clouds

pyos
====

Python SDK for OpenStack Clouds

See the COPYING file for license and copyright information.

**pyos** is a should work with most OpenStack-based cloud deployments.
If your cloud provider has features that are not OpenStack features that
you want to use, then pyos is not for you. You should instead use an
SDK specific to that cloud provider ... just beware that you may be locking
yourself into their proprietary choices without meaning to.

pyos will go out of its way to hide the differences between legit deployment
choices that your cloud provider may have made. For instance, your cloud
provider may not use the floating-ip extension, but instead will just give
every instance you boot an IP. Awesome! It turns out that all you probably
wanted was an instance that could talk to the internet and you didn't care
one whit about floating-ips in the first place. We'll try to help with that.`
