salt-api 0.5.0

salt-api is gearing up for the initial public release with 0.5.0. Although this release ships with working basic functionality it is awaiting the authentication backend that will be introduced in Salt 0.10.4 before it can be considered ready for testing at large.


This release presents the flagship netapi module which provides a RESTful interface to a running Salt system. It allows for viewing minions, runners, and jobs as well as running execution modules and runners of a running Salt system through a REST API that returns JSON.


salt-api is just getting off the ground so feedback, questions, and ideas are critical as we solidify how this project fits into the overall Salt infrastructure management stack. Please get involved by filing issues on GitHub, discussing on the mailing list, and chatting in #salt on Freenode.
