Initially I had a more elaborate version based on the exact
code in the higher class, but this simpler version works just fine.
Incidentally, what the xen
xm commandline tool uses works identically
class UHTTPConnection(httplib.HTTPConnection): """Subclass of Python library HTTPConnection that uses a unix-domain socket. """ def __init__(self, path): httplib.HTTPConnection.__init__(self, 'localhost') self.path = path def connect(self): sock = socket.socket(socket.AF_UNIX, socket.SOCK_STREAM) sock.connect(self.path) self.sock = sock
This small hack plus the fine PHP serialization classes from Scott
Hurring are the basis of
OpenPanel.coreclient, which allows for very
easy provisioning and querying of OpenPanel/opencore data. We use it
mostly for unit testing.
