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.
cumin CLI script allows users to execute Salt commands from computers
that are external to computers running the
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
pip install salt-cumin
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'
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
