Development : Build Status


This python application provide an interface to manage Scaleway servers in a general manner via the HTTP API.

  • Pre setting of Token and Datacenter via ENVVARS
  • Switch datacenter
  • Set token
  • Test API access from choosen datacenter
  • List organizations
  • List images, servers, volumes and IPs from the current datacenter
  • Test Image vs Server Type
  • Create a new server
  • Send actions to a server
  • Catch the server availability

Why ?

The provided SDK in python does not allow to fully manage the creation of a server. So I decided to write my own SDK as an interactive interface.

The achievement is to make Scaleway IasS scriptable


ckd-scaleway uses a limited number of well-known python libraries to work:

  • [colorama] - set some colors in the interface!
  • [requests] - allow HTTP management of Scaleway API
  • [json] - basic library to treat json data.
  • [pprint] - allow the PrettyPrinting


ckd-scaleway requires [python] and [pip] to run.

Install the dependencies and start the application:

$ pip install -r requirements.txt


  • Interactive mode
$ python
ckd-scaleway# status
  • Pre set interactive mode Optionnaly you can preset the datacenter and your token:
$ export SCWTOKEN=xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx
$ export SCWDATACENTER=ams1
$ python
ckd-scaleway# status
  • Non interactive (just to create a server)
$ export SCWTOKEN=xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx
$ export SCWDATACENTER=ams1
$ python -t s -c "<Organization ID> <Server Name> <Image ID> <Server Type>"


python -h


ckd-scaleway# help
ckd-scaleway# help <Command>


  • Some tests are shipped to tests your modifications
pytest -v


  • Servers type listing
  • Tokens listing
  • Delete a server
  • Credentials management
  • Integrate envvars to travis
  • Increase the code coverage
