vCD-CLI is a command line interface for VMware vCloud Director. It utilises the vCD API.
vCD-CLI requires Python 3. See the sections below for installation on major OS distributions.
Pre-release and source installations are covered at the end of the page, so keep reading to experience life on the bleeding edge.
Note: The examples use pip3 for installing Python 3 modules to ensure correct results in environments with mixed Python versions. There are a couple of confusing exceptions related to installing pip itself. In these cases you must use the name pip.
$ sudo apt-get install python3-pip gcc -y
$ pip3 install --user vcd-cli
Follow these steps:
1. Start by installing Python 3 using the latest Windows installer available from https://www.python.org/downloads/windows/ . Ensure that 'python.exe' is in the path.
2. Install vcd-cli and add to the PATH (needed for local installs):
- C:UsersAdministrator>pip3 install --user vcd-cli
- C:UsersAdministrator>set PATH=%PATH%;C:UsersAdministratorAppDataRoamingPythonPython36Scripts
