> Hello OpenStack folks,
> As part of my dev work I recently put together a cool little tool which
> lets me have much easier access to the various OpenStack python clients
> in the scope of a python interpreter session. The first version was a
> little rough and without os-client-config support. The current version
> is now a plugin for the openstackclient and introduces a command that
> simply authenticates you, sets up the environment and helper tools, and
> then drops you into an ipython interactive session. The helper stuff is
> fairly simple, but combined with the features of ipython it really lets
> you start playing with the tools quickly, and by piggybacking onto
> openstackclient I get access to a lot of the niceties and inbuilt auth
> mechanisms.
> It is useful for learning, testing, or development against the various
> openstack client libraries, and even as an ops tool to quickly run some
> basic actions without having to resort to weird or silly bash command
> combinations.
> I personally use it to test out commands or libraries I'm not familiar
> with, or if I just need to work out what the output from something is.
> Often even doing once off admin actions that require parsing through and
> comparing different values and resources, but isn't worth writing a
> script for.
> My goal was to make something easy to use, and help almost anyone pick
> up and start using the various python clients without needing to dig
> through too much docs.
