Official Mirror
a modular interface on top of Salt that can provide a variety of entry points
into a running Salt system. It can start and manage multiple interfaces
allowing a REST API to coexist with XMLRPC or even a Websocket API.
The Salt API system is used to expose the fundamental aspects of Salt control
to external sources. salt-api acts as the bridge between Salt itself and
REST, Websockets, etc.
