Arista eAPI Python Library

Build Status Coverage Status Documentation Status

The Python library for Arista's eAPI command API implementation provides a client API work using eAPI and communicating with EOS nodes. The Python library can be used to communicate with EOS either locally (on-box) or remotely (off-box). It uses a standard INI-style configuration file to specify one or more nodes and connection properties.

The pyeapi library also provides an API layer for building native Python objects to interact with the destination nodes. The API layer is a convenient implementation for working with the EOS configuration and is extensible for developing custom implementations.

This library is freely provided to the open source community for building robust applications using Arista EOS. Support is provided as best effort through Github issues.
