Prerequisites: CloudBridge runs on Python 2.7 and higher. Python 3 is recommended.
We highly recommend installing CloudBridge in a virtualenv. Creating a new virtualenv is simple:
pip install virtualenv virtualenv .venv source .venv/bin/activate
Latest stable release¶
The latest release of CloudBridge can be installed from PyPI:
pip install cloudbridge
Latest unreleased dev version¶
The development version of the library can be installed directly from the GitHub repo:
$ pip install --upgrade git+https://github.com/CloudVE/cloudbridge.git
Single Provider Installation¶
If you only require to integrate with one to two providers, you can install the particular providers only as the following.
$ pip install cloudbridge[aws,gcp]
The available options are aws, azure, gcp and openstack.
To install additional libraries required by CloudBridge contributors, such as tox, clone the source code repository and run the following command from the repository root directory:
$ git clone https://github.com/CloudVE/cloudbridge.git $ cd cloudbridge $ pip install --upgrade --editable .[dev]
To check what version of the library you have installed, do the following:
import cloudbridge cloudbridge.get_version()
