Welcome to Neutron Lib documentation!

Neutron-lib is an OpenStack library project used by Neutron, Advanced Services, and third-party projects that aims to provide common functionality across all such consumers. The library is developed with the following goals in mind:

  • Decouple sub-projects from Neutron (i.e. no direct neutron imports in sub-projects).

  • Pay down Neutron technical debt via refactoring/re-architecting of sub-optimal patterns in their respective neutron-lib implementation.

This document describes the library for contributors of the project, and assumes that you are already familiar with Neutron from an end-user perspective. If not, hop over to the OpenStack doc site

This documentation is generated by the Sphinx toolkit and lives in the source tree. Additional documentation on Neutron and other components of OpenStack can be found on the OpenStack wiki and the Neutron section of the wiki. The Neutron Development wiki is also a good resource for new contributors.
