Glusto is a framework designed to provide features commonly used in a
remote/distributed environment via a single and easy-to-access object.
It started out as a port of some shell ssh functions I had written
and was meant for use in PyUnit* tests for Gluster.
Some of the key concepts and features of Glusto:
Glusto inherits from multiple classes providing configuration (yaml, json, ini), remote connection (SSH, SCP, RPyC), ANSI color output, logging, and unit test functionality (PyUnit, PyTest, Nose)--presenting them in a single global Class object.
Glusto also acts as a global class for maintaining state and configuration data across multiple modules and classes.
Glusto provides a wrapper utility (
/usr/bin/glusto) to help make configuration files available to test cases from the command-line.
How to Use Glusto
Import at the top of each module leveraging the glusto tools.
To use Glusto in a module::
>>> from glusto.core import Glusto as g
Glusto inherits from multiple classes providing configuration,
remote connection, ANSI color output, and logging functionality,
presenting them in a single global Class object.
Glusto also acts a global class for maintaining state across
multiple modules and classes.
It is no longer necessary to say "Glusto Importo!" out loud
before executing scripts using the Glusto module. The import statement is
more than sufficient.
