Cumin

Cumin contains a Python library and CLI scripts for accessing a remote salt-api instance.

cumin abstracts the HTTP calls to salt-api so existing Python projects can easily integrate with a remote Salt installation just by instantiating a class.

The cumin CLI script allows users to execute Salt commands from computers that are external to computers running the salt-master or salt-minion daemons as though they were running Salt locally. The long-term goal is to add additional CLI scripts maintain the same interface as Salt's own CLI scripts (salt, salt-run, salt-key, etc).

Installation

pip install salt-cumin

Usage

export SALTAPI_USER=saltdev SALTAPI_PASS=saltdev SALTAPI_EAUTH=pam
cumin '*' test.ping
cumin '*' test.kwarg hello=dolly

Examples leveraging the runner client.

cumin-run reactor.list
cumin-run reactor.add event='test/provision/*' reactors='/srv/salt/state/reactor/test-provision.sls'

Configuration

You can configure cumin through the command line, using environment variables or in a configuration file $HOME/.pepperrc with the following syntax :

[main]
SALTAPI_URL=https://localhost:8000/
SALTAPI_USER=saltdev
SALTAPI_PASS=saltdev
SALTAPI_EAUTH=pam
