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[full]

Latest unreleased dev version

The development version of the library can be installed directly from the GitHub repo:

$ pip install --upgrade 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.

Developer installation

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
$ cd cloudbridge
$ pip install --upgrade --editable .[dev]

Checking installation

To check what version of the library you have installed, do the following:

import cloudbridge
