Python API

Rambo’s CLI and Python API are compatible. In other words, what you can do in the CLI, you can do in the Python API. To accomplish this the CLI is largely dependant on the Python API. You can access the Python API by importing the various functions in, such as with from import up

Through the Python API you can call up and destroy to create and destroy VMs. ssh is also available and presents an interactive shell to the VM, as if you ran rambo ssh with the CLI.

CLI options are available to be set as either functions in, or as parameters to those functions, depending on whether the CLI option was on rambo or a command (e.g. up). For instance, the following are equivalent:

rambo --vagrant-cwd /sample/path up -p virtualbox
from import up
up(vagrant_cwd,"/sample/path", provider="virtualbox")
