Instantiate driver based on driver string

See original GitHub issue

With a multi-vendor inventory, we would usually have the device type as a string such as ios or eos. In netmiko, this works well because we pass the driver as a string to ConnectHandler but it seems that in scrapli, the only way is to explicitly import all drivers from scrapli.driver.core (without using a workaround like __import__).

With the current code it doesn’t seem straightforward to add a driver key like in netmiko, but is there (or could there be) something like netmiko CLASS_MAPPER ( that associates driver names to their class so that we can instantiate a driver programmatically (with MAPPER[driver_name](**device) as...) ?

Hello @carlmontanari

Thanks for the detailed answer ! I’ll create the driver mapping myself for now until this next release. I think the community driver repo is a great idea, it worked well for napalm.
