Pure-Python implementation of SSH2, based on Paramiko


The ssh library is a fork of, and spiritual successor to, the Paramiko Python SSH library. It was created by the developers of the Fabric library as a way to ensure timely updates and bugfixes for critical issues.

ssh is currently in a transitional state and other than a rename and a handful of small but crucial fixes/tweaks, the code and the documentation remain unchanged from the original.

We hope to clean up the presentation and documentation in the near future, as more bugfixes and API additions are rolled out. We also plan to absorb some of the higher profile bugs/issues from the Paramiko Github repository.

Thank you for your patience!
