Subject [GitHub] libcloud pull request #822: Lazy entry
Date Fri, 24 Jun 2016 05:55:50 GMT

    Lazy entry

    ## Introduce a convenience method to the libcloud module for getting drivers
    ### Description
    I find the current mechanism for fetching drivers a little cumbersome, 2 namespaces to
import. After using the `requests` library I really like the module `__init__` accessors for
common attributes. The most common factory is `get_driver` and the most common enum is the
Provider enum.
    This code allows for this example:
    import libcloud
    cls = libcloud.get_driver(libcloud.DriverType.COMPUTE, libcloud.DriverType.COMPUTE.RACKSPACE)
    ### Status
