CI/CD network automation using Eve-NG

Dear Team,

CI/CD Network simulation using Eve-ng.

I am thinking of simulating our real network using eve-ng( Like vagrant is used ) .
So there will be Sandbox and Production environment. Sandbox will replicate the real one.
Real network nodes comprise of Mikrotik, Cisco, Huawei routers. Mainly I am focused in L3 (routing and mpls configuration)
I am trying to draw a topology in Eve by collecting info and writing topology.unl file using scripts( python).
Right now I am drawing manually the portion of our network for testing.

Is there any tool there where I can give some sort of info about the diagram and it will generate a topology for
you(like for cumulus). If there is none, I will be trying to devise a script that will populate and produce
topology XML file. ( I do not want to reinvent whole wheel).
I want to use eve-ng as a Testbed for the CI/CD network config automation.

I have some success and proceeding forward. If somebody already done it than I need help.
I choose Eve-ng because of the web interface and easy device access which will be helpful for network people. (Please advise if it wrong choice)

Dear Team,

I have stumbled upon the following link of eve-ng API support.
" ... eve-ng-api"

For Creating, deleting, starting each node, stopping nodes , wiping configuration of nodes the link has info.
Previously I was updating unl file programmitically, and I feel the link is right way to do things.

I will be following the documentation, and may be I need to move this thread to General Discussion Section now.
