The simplest ssh cli agent one is able to find

Project Description


It looks like, that it is really hard to find a ssh connection managing instance that just saves ssh connection details through an alias. I am not able to remember all the hosts that I am responsible for, therefore a manager is needed. One may say … “Dude, do this shit in (ba)sh! … stupid”. But for me shell scripting is, in most of the cases, just an annoying task.

So there it is. A python script that stores ssh connection details. You can even run ssh connections with it … hell yeah! It is all based on a single small file in your home directory called hosts.pickle under the directory damnsshmanager. One host contains simply the attributes

  • alias
  • addr
  • port
  • username

At the moment this thing handles no more data! It is developed just for this simple reason.


via pip

pip install damnsshmanager

from sources

git clone

cd damnsshmanager

python3 install


With the installation comes the script dsm.

dsm -h
Action Command
add dsm add <alias> <hostname> [-u username] [-p port]
delete dsm del <alias>
connect dsm c <alias>

When run without parameters all saved instances are tested.
