Asynchronous client for the Tailscale API.

About

This package allows you to control and monitor Tailscale clients
programmatically. It is mainly created to allow third-party programs to
integrate with Tailscale.

Installation

pip install tailscale

Usage

import asyncio

from tailscale import Tailscale


async def main():
    """Show example on using the Tailscale API client."""
    async with Tailscale(
        tailnet="frenck",
        api_key="tskey-somethingsomething",
    ) as tailscale:

        devices = await tailscale.devices()
        print(devices)


if __name__ == "__main__":
    asyncio.run(main())

Changelog & Releases

This repository keeps a change log using GitHub’s releases

We’ve set up a separate document for our

Setting up development environment

This Python project is fully managed using the Poetry dependency
manager. But also relies on the use of NodeJS for certain checks during
development.

You need at least:

  • Python 3.8+
  • Poetry
  • NodeJS 14+ (including NPM)

To install all packages, including all development requirements:

npm install
poetry install

As this repository uses the pre-commit framework, all changes
are linted and tested with each commit. You can run all checks and tests
manually, using the following command:

poetry run pre-commit run --all-files

To run just the Python tests:

poetry run pytest
