start working on a goeapi library, any help would be appreciated

doesn’t really support python’s ParseConfig, so using json instead, syntax maybe different,

will completing the library, the good part is, command line tool can be compiled and run on any systems.

thanks, the core part is finished, (core.go) when i post this.

Writing a, i took pyeapi as an example porting most of functions. (may go different way for interface and routing part since i think switchport should be under interface, and bgp should be under routing)

if you guys are interested, we can work on this together since i dont know all the arista command and use cases,

current part is all i need for my company to use the api though go.

the RumCmds doesnt support sync, but for go routine to work, you can write a wrapper function.
