NetBox is an infrastructure resource modeling (IRM) tool designed to empower
network automation. Initially conceived by the network engineering team at
DigitalOcean, NetBox was developed specifically
to address the needs of network and infrastructure engineers. It is intended to
function as a domain-specific source of truth for network operations.
NetBox runs as a web application atop the Django
Python framework with a PostgreSQL database. For a
complete list of requirements, see
requirements.txt. The code is available on GitHub.
The complete documentation for NetBox can be found at Read the Docs. A public demo instance is available at https://demo.netbox.dev.
