The Python Asterisk package (codenamed py-Asterisk) is an attempt to produce
high quality, well documented Python bindings for the Asterisk Manager API.
The eventual goal of the package is to allow rich specification of the
Asterisk configuration in Python rather than in the quirky, unstructured,
undocumented mess called the Asterisk configuration files.
Working Functionality
Python package implementing a manager client and event dispatcher
User-oriented command line interface to manager API
Work In Progress
Introductary documentation for developers
Asterisk module allowing dialplan configuration via the manager API
Objects to represent the standard applications
