  • Python 2.7
  • PIP
  • NodeJS & NPM
  • An underlying database system:
    • SQLite
    • MySQL

Building and setting up

In order to use DemoInstance, you can:

Install backend service

In order to install DemoInstance backend service:

$ git clone git@github.com:pmsipilot/demoinstance.git
$ cd demoinstance/backend/
$ sudo python2 ./setup.py install

Prepare frontend sources

In order to prepare frontend sources:

$ cd frontend
$ npm install
$ node_modules/gulp/bin/gulp.js

Set up web server

In this example, we'll be using the nginx webserver:

  • Install nginx (according to your operating system documentation)
  • Configure nginx virtualhost
  • Restart nginx

Virtualhost example:

server {
       listen 8080;
       root /opt/demoinstance/frontend/;
       index index.html;
       location /api {
                proxy_pass http://127.0.0.1:8081;
       }
       location / {
                try_files $uri $uri/ =404;
       }
       location /instance_image/ {
                alias /etc/demoinstance/instance_image/;
                try_files $uri $uri/ =404;
       }
}
  • In this example, the webserver is listening on port 8080, frontend files are stored in /opt/demoinstance/frontend, and backend is listening on port 8081.
  • All /api requests must be passed to demoinstance backend service
  • /instance_imagerequests points to /etc/demoinstance/instance_image/ in this example.
  • Other requests are fulfilled with previously prepared frontend source code files.

Then, you must configure DemoInstance backend.

DemoInstance have a single ini config file : config.ini
In this file you have many section.

DATABASE

[DATABASE]
connection:mysql://root@localhost:3306/demo
Argument Optional Description

Only tested with MySQL and SQLite

IMAGE

[IMAGE] section is the template of any [IMAGE_].
You can define in this section variable shared with all [IMAGE_]. The [IMAGE] section do not define a runnable image, only section with [IMAGE_ImageName] format define runnable image.

Parameter in this section depends on which provider you are using. Moreover some parameters are used by DemoInstance itself

config
Argument Optional Description
name No Name of instance like "My cool app"
desc No Little descrition like "This app is so cooooooool"
info No info display after the creation like : "Login/Password are\<br />test/test""
time_default No Default instance life time in minute

img Yes url of picture. Can be in /instance_image or external link
pool yes (int) Pre start N instance, default 0
Openstack image parameter

If you use provider = openstack you must / can add this parameter to your image configuration

Argument Optional Description
image_id No Openstack image id or name
flavor_id No Openstack flavor id or name
prefix No Openstack prefix name
user_data yes nova userdata to inject in the instance
meta yes Add meta to instance

example

Example with only one instance:

[IMAGE]

[IMAGE_MYAPP]
name=MyAPP
desc=My first app
info=Login/Password are<br />test/test
img=/instance_image/example.png
image_id=MonImage1
flavor_id=m1.tiny
time_default=20
prefix=myapp_
check_url=http://%ip%/ok
soft_url=http://%ip%/
max_instance=10
pool=2
meta=disk=ssd,ram=ECC

Example with three instances

[IMAGE]
flavor_id=1

[IMAGE_MYAPP1]
name=MyAPP
desc=My first app
...

[IMAGE_MYAPP2]
name=MyNewAPP
desc=My second app
...


[IMAGE_MYAPP3]
name=MyLastAPP
desc=My last app
flavor_id=2
...

In this example just [IMAGE_MYAPP3] run with flavor_id=2 and other image run with flavor_id=1 defined in [IMAGE]

Ini format Tips

Sometimes, you need a value to be on multi-line. To do that you can write your key:parameter like this:

user_data:#cloud-config
    password: mypassword
    chpasswd: { expire: False }
    ssh_pwauth: True

This is defined here : http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc822.html on LONG HEADER FIELDS section

Run Backend

/usr/local/bin/demoinstance -c /etc/demoinstance/config.ini

Run w/ Docker

There is also a Docker Production-ready image: https://hub.docker.com/r/pmsipilot/demoinstance/

docker run -v /path/to/config/and/instance_image:/etc/demoinstance/ -i pmsipilot/demoinstance
  • /etc/demoinstance/ must contain:
    • config.ini file
    • instance_image folder with instance images

Init script

Redhat/Centos

Template for Centos is avaible in ressources/rhel-init-demoinstance.
Just link file to /etc/init.d.

ln -s /where/is/your/project /etc/init.d/demoinstance

Don't forget to add config file in /etc/sysconfig/demoinstance

cat <EOF /etc/sysconfig/demoinstance
# PID file
PIDFILE=/tmp/test.pid
# Log file
LOGFILE=/tmp/log.log
# Process's user
USER=demoinstance
# Demoinstance folder
DEMO_DIR=/opt/demoinstance
EOF

Debian/Ubuntu

If you want this you can do it and make me a PR

Contribute

If you want to contribute you're welcome. Just create issues or make some PR.

Dev env

The development environment is built w/ Docker on top of the production-ready image, with docker-compose

docker-compose up

A supervisord process will listen for changes in frontend files, and changes to backend source code will be directly applied.

Run test

To run test just run this command on with an URL od demoinstance run with test/samples/config/config-fake.ini

python test.py -u -f -U http://127.0.0.1:8080

Add auth system

To add a new auth system is really simple, just add a class in Demo/auth directory which is son of DemoAuth
and just add 2 functions with this prototype :

    def __init__(self, config):
        pass

    #Must return email if ok or False
    def check_auth(self, user, password):
        pass

init parameter is just "config" which is a dictionnary of your config section.

Config section name must be your filename (without '.py') uppercase and your class name must be a transformation
of your filename like this :
'auth_ldap.py => AuthLdap'

Add a new provider

To add a new provider, write a class in Demo/provider which herit from DemoProv.
