I am getting a little bit confused. There are a lot of python api binding projects out there: ( --> is a fork of: ( --> points me now to: (

I don't know which one to use anymore. The things I would like to do using the API:

As an admin:

  • Manage users
  • Manage projects
  • Manage networks

As an user:

  • Manage instances
  • Manage keypairs

So pretty much all functionality in Openstack. It seems python-novaclient is the most active at the moment?

The last one is dead, the second one is Rackspace API (OS 1.0-ish).

But, for the operations your considering, there is a separate admin api (don't know the details on it, or if it's supported in novaclient) ... there may be another client for that.

Perhaps someone from the API teams can comment?
