Pepper contains a Python library and CLI scripts for accessing a remote

salt-api
__ instance.

pepperlib
abstracts the HTTP calls to
salt-api
so existing Python projects can easily integrate with a remote Salt installation just by instantiating a class.

The

pepper
CLI script allows users to execute Salt commands from computers that are external to computers running the
salt-master
or
salt-minion
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 (
salt
,
salt-run
,
salt-key
, etc).

It does not require any additional dependencies and runs on Python 2.5+ and Python 3. (Python 3 support is new, please file an issue if you encounter trouble.)

Installation

.. code-block:: bash

pip install salt-pepper

Usage

Basic usage is in heavy flux. You can run pepper using the script in %PYTHONHOME%/scripts/pepper (a pepper.cmd wrapper is provided for convenience to Windows users).

.. code-block:: bash

export SALTAPI_USER=saltdev SALTAPI_PASS=saltdev SALTAPI_EAUTH=pam
pepper '*' test.ping
pepper '*' test.kwarg hello=dolly

Examples leveraging the runner client.

.. code-block:: bash

pepper --client runner reactor.list
pepper --client runner reactor.add event='test/provision/*' reactors='/srv/salt/state/reactor/test-provision.sls'

Configuration

You can configure pepper through the command line, using environment variables or in a configuration file

$HOME/.pepperrc
with the following syntax :

.. code-block::

[main] SALTAPIURL=https://localhost:8000/ SALTAPIUSER=saltdev SALTAPIPASS=saltdev SALTAPIEAUTH=pam
