This short demo shows some of the capabilities of the new transactional CLI:
ConfD + NETCONF + Cisco YDK
This is a very simple demo of ripd being configured by a python script. The script uses NETCONF to communicate with ripd, which has the ConfD plugin loaded. The most interesting part, however, is the fact that the python script is not using handcrafted XML payloads to configure ripd. Instead, the script is using python bindings generated using Cisco’s YANG Development Kit (YDK).
