What is Glance

Glance is a dashboard that displays quick snippets of information. Currently Glance supports GitHub, with features such as getting repositories from a Github Organization as well as listing all the pull request for each repository from the organization.

Glance runs in CoreOS

Glance was created to be as simple as possible and deploying Glance is as easy as running a docker container. Glance can also be installed into a CoreOS cluster using a CoreOS service file. Take a look at our CoreOS service file for an example. Glance can also be ran as an application using Node.js by using environment variables to change the default options, see Getting Started.

We have setup automated Docker Hub builds for Glance here

Getting Started

$ git clone
$ cd glance
//Edit glance.service and the GITHUB_AUTH_TOKEN and GITHUB_ORG_NAME
$ fleetctl start services/glance.service

NOTE: it is necessary to edit the fields GITHUB_AUTH_TOKEN & GITHUB_ORG_NAME with the corresponding values.

Our example service file is setup to be a Global service listening on port 3000. This can be modified in the CoreOS service file which can be found here.

$ docker run --name glance -p 3000:3000 -e GITHUB_ORG_NAME=myorg -e GITHUB_AUTH_TOKEN=mytoken yodlr/glance:latest

To change default options, see options.
Example with custom option:

$ GITHUB_AUTH_TOKEN=mytoken GITHUB_ORG_NAME=myorg npm start


Glance default options. To change the default options, simply set the value of any of the following environment variables.

PORT (Default: 3000)
LOG_LEVEL (Default: 'info')
GITHUB_CRON (Default: '0 */15 * * * *', every 15 mins)
GITHUB_AUTH_TYPE (Default: 'oauth')
GITHUB_AUTH_TOKEN (Required by default, unless 'basic' auth type is selected)
