BMC-Toolbox projects:

  • bmcldap: A LDAP proxy to authenticate BMCs
  • bmcbutler: BMC configuration management tool
  • bmclogin: A small helper library to login to BMCs.

  • actor: Api to carry out actions to BMCs
  • gin-go-metrics: gin-gonic/gin middleware to gather and store metrics using rcrowley/go-metrics

  • redgopher: An attempt to generate a redfish 2018.3 openAPI client
  • bmcfwupd: BMC firmware management tool
