Common CloudShell Packages
This article lists the basic Python packages you would need for shells and scripts. These packages were developed by Quali and are available on public PyPi.
While there are additional packages for specific needs and capabilities, the packages listed below cover most of the required functionality. For additional information, see Quali’s Shell Framework (Python 2) for python 2.7 automation and Quali’s Shell Framework (Python 3) if you’re developing in Python 3.x.
- cloudshell-orch-core is the only package you need for orchestration scripts.
- cloudshell-orch-core contains cloudshell-automation-api
- While cloudshell-automation-api includes several methods that apply to shells, it provides unnecessary access to CloudShell administrative areas and is therefore not recommended to be used in shells.
