djcloudbridge 0.2.0

A ReSTful web api backed by cloudbridge for interacting with cloud providers

Latest Version: 0.2.1

A reusable Django app that exposes a ReSTful Web API for interacting with CloudBridge providers. The structure of the API mirrors the organisation of CloudBridge’s API and allows for creating, retrieving and updating CloudBridge resources.

Documentation

The full documentation is at https://djcloudbridge.readthedocs.io.

Quickstart

Install djcloudbridge:

pip install djcloudbridge

Add it to your INSTALLED_APPS:

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    ...
    'djcloudbridge.apps.DjangoCloudbridgeConfig',
    ...
)

Add djcloudbridge’s URL patterns:

from djcloudbridge import urls as djcloudbridge_urls


urlpatterns = [
    ...
    url(r'^', include(djcloudbridge_urls)),
    ...
]

And finally, the following settings are recommended in your settings.py

REST_FRAMEWORK = {
    'PAGE_SIZE': 50,
    'DEFAULT_PAGINATION_CLASS': 'rest_framework.pagination.PageNumberPagination',
    'DEFAULT_AUTHENTICATION_CLASSES': (
        'rest_framework.authentication.SessionAuthentication',
        'rest_framework.authentication.TokenAuthentication'
    )
}

REST_AUTH_SERIALIZERS = {
    'USER_DETAILS_SERIALIZER': 'djcloudbridge.serializers.UserSerializer'
}

REST_SESSION_LOGIN = True

# **Make sure to change** the value for ``FERNET_KEYS`` variable
# because it is used to encrypt sensitive database fields.
FERNET_KEYS = [
    'new key for encrypting'
]

Running the API Locally

You can run a test server to browse the API endpoints locally. DJCloudBridge is based on Python 3.6 and although it may work on older Python versions, 3.6 is the only supported version. Use of virtualenv is also highly advised.

To get started, simply register the provider connection information under the relevant cloud model (e.g. AWS, Azure, GCE, OpenStack) in Django Admin. Then create a User Profile under the User Profile model. Finally, use the API browser at http://localhost:8000/clouds to view the cloud you registered and interact with cloud resources for that provider.

  1. Checkout djcloudbridge and create environment
$ mkdir djcloudbridge && cd djcloudbridge
$ virtualenv -p python3.6 venv --prompt "(djcloudbridge)" && source venv/bin/activate
$ git clone https://github.com/cloudve/djcloudbridge.git
$ cd djcloudbridge
$ pip install -r requirements.txt
$ python manage.py migrate
$ python manage.py createsuperuser
$ python manage.py runserver
  1. Visit http://127.0.0.1:8000/admin/ to define your cloud connection settings.
  2. Visit http://127.0.0.1:8000/clouds/ to explore the API.
