Tool to translate non-heat templates to Heat Orchestration Template.

Team and repository tags



Heat-Translator is an Openstack project and licensed under Apache 2. It is a command line tool which takes non-Heat templates as an input and produces a Heat Orchestration Template (HOT) which can be deployed by Heat. Currently the development and testing is done with an aim to translate OASIS Topology and Orchestration Specification for Cloud Applications (TOSCA) templates to HOT. However, the tool is designed to be easily extended to use with any format other than TOSCA.


Heat-Translator project takes a non-Heat template (e.g. TOSCA flat YAML template or template embedded in TOSCA Cloud Service Archive (CSAR) format) as an input, calls an appropriate Parser (e.g. TOSCA Parser) per the type of input template to parse it and create an in-memory graph, maps it to Heat resources and then produces a Heat Orchestration Template (HOT) as an output.
