Short Description
Podded webui for launching Apache Spark clusters on OpenShift
Full Description


This project provides a solution for deploying and managing Apache Spark
clusters in an OpenShift environment. The oshinko-webui is deployed into a
project within OpenShift, and then can create, update, and destroy Apache
Spark clusters in that project. Once installed, it consists of a Node.JS
application that is contained within a Pod and provides a web browser based
user interface for controlling the lifecycle of Spark clusters.


In general, there are two main audiences for a discussion of installing the
oshinko-webui: users and developers. If you are interested in running as a
user, or to test drive the application, please see the
Step-by-step quickstart
instructions. If you would like to get started hacking on oshinko-webui please
see the
Developer instructions

Step-by-step quickstart

These instructions assume that you have access to an OpenShift cluster and
the oc command line tool. Although these instructions will help you to
install the oshinko-webui into your OpenShift project, it is possible in
some circumstances that you will not have enough privileges to run the
installation. In the event that you are unable to create the necessary
components to install the application, please consult with your OpenShift

Before performing the following instructions, you must be logged in to
your account and project using the oc tool.

Step 1. Create a service account

For oshinko-webui to interact with OpenShift and control the Spark resources
you will create, it needs a service account in your project. To create this
account, run the following command:

$ oc create sa oshinko

Step 2. Add edit privileges to service account

That service account will need to have edit privilages in your project. This
command will allow the service account to make the necessary requests to

$ oc policy add-role-to-user edit -z oshinko

Step 3. Install oshinko-webui

With the service account properly configured, you can now install and run
the oshinko-webui application from within a pod in your project. The
oc new-app command is used to deploy the application from a template which
defines the necessary OpenShift objects.

There is one choice to make when deploying oshinko-webui, and it will define
how you access the browser interface. Please choose ONE of the following

Option 1. Expose a route

This option will expose a named route through the OpenShift edge router to
allow for domain name association with a Kubernetes service. Please keep in
mind that you should only do this for routes that you can limit access to as
this will create a public route to your oshinko-webui. If you want to run the
app with an exposed route, run the following:

$ oc new-app -f

To confirm that oshinko-webui is being deployed into your project, you can
check the OpenShift status to inspect the state of the pod. To check
the status run oc status and inspect the output, it should appear similar
to the following:

$ oc status
In project oshinko on server (svc/oshinko-web)
  dc/oshinko deploys
      deployment #1 deployed 16 seconds ago - 1 pod

The default route is: http://oshinko-web-<projectname>.<hostIp> and
that is where you will be able to access the oshinko-webui browser interface.

Option 2. Use a custom port-forward

Or, if you'd prefer to not expose a route, you can run the app and then set
up a port-forward to allow you to access the app. To install oshinko-webui
without an exposed route, run the following:

$ oc new-app -f

To create the port-forward, you will need to know the name of the pod where
oshinko-webui is running, this line will give you the pod name:

$ oc get pods -o jsonpath --selector='name=oshinko-web' --no-headers  --template='{.items[*]}'

Use the output from the above line as the pod name in the following line.
The listen port can be any open port on your machine. 8080 is the port
where oshinko-webui is listening in the pod.

$ oc port-forward <pod name> <listen port>:8080

You can then access the oshinko-webui browser interface at
http://localhost:<listen port>

Developer instructions

If you are interesting in developing the code for oshinko-webui or hacking on
its internals, the following instructions will help you to deploy, run, and
test the code.

Before getting started you will need to have access to an OpenShift cluster
and the oc command line application.

Running the app during development

You'll need to have a node environment installed (developed using NodeJS v6.3.1).
You might prefer to use nvm (
to manage your node environment.
Once that is set up, you can run the following:

$ npm install
$ npm install -g bower
$ bower install

Now you're ready to run the oshinko-webui server.

First, you'll need start an instance of oc proxy.
The following will start oc proxy listening on all interfaces, port 8001

`oc proxy -p 8001 --disable-filter=true --address= --api-prefix=/proxy`

Next, set the following environment variables:

export OSHINKO_PROXY_LOCATION=<host:port of proxy, localhost:8001 if you used above example>
export CURRENT_NAMESPACE=<name of your current openshift project>

Then run the following to initialize your config.local.js file

sed -i "s/<PROXY>/'$OSHINKO_PROXY_LOCATION'/" app/config.local.js

You can pick one of these options:

  • install node.js and run node server.js

Then navigate your browser to http://localhost:<port> to see the app running in
your browser.

Running unit tests

To run the unit tests:

$ npm install -g karma-cli
$ karma start test/karma.conf.js

End to end testing

You'll need protractor installed:

$ npm install -g protractor

<optional> Then run:

$ webdriver-manager update

You may need to update test/conf.js to point to your correct baseUrl [default is http://localhost:8080] Or, you can pass --baseUrl=<your baseUrl> on the protractor command line

$ webdriver-manager start

From another terminal window, you can run:

$ protractor test/conf.js
