A library and stand-alone CLI tools to access a salt-api instance
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.)
