Tim

Summary

Tim is a Rails Engine responsible for Cloud image management. It allows clients to create, delete and upload images to a multitude of Cloud providers. Tim builds on top of Imagefactory’s cloud abstraction layer.

Adding the ability for clients to store meta-data (used for searching and sorting) as well as versioning and support for access control. Tim wraps all this up in a clean, simply RESTful API.

You can read the full presentation here.

Configuration

Securing Image Factory requests

It is possible to secure Image Factory requests using 2 Legged OAuth. To use 2 Legged OAuth you must set the OAuth consumer key, consumer secret and url in the Tim::ImageFactory::Base.config.

Example:

oauth_config = {:consumer_key => "mock-key",
                :consumer_secret => "mock-secret",
                :site => "http://localhost:8075/imagefactory/"}
Tim::ImageFactory::Base.config = oauth_config

Running Tests

Build
Status

Tests are run from the project root directory. But are run in the context of the dummy app located under test/dummy. In order to run the tests you must first setup dummy app database.

rake db:setup; rake -f test/dummy/Rakefile test:prepare

Once you have done this cd to the project root and run the following:

rake spec

Running the Dummy app

This will allow you to runn the commands below to test out the engine in isolation (if mounted in another application, the main difference will just be where the engine gets mounted, so adjust your url accordingly).

cd test/dummy; rails s

Generating State Machines Images

From test/dummy run:

rake state_machine:draw FILE=../../app/models/tim/target_image.rb CLASS=Tim::TargetImage
rake state_machine:draw FILE=../../app/models/tim/provider_image.rb CLASS=Tim::ProviderImage

Contributing

We encourage you to contribute to Tim. We are open to new ideas and features (especially if you offer to implement them!) as well as Github issues to point us at any bugs that may be encountered.

General

  • We use Github issues to track our features and bugs.

  • Want to paste some code or output? Put ``` on a line above and below your code/output. See Github documentation’s Fenced Code Blocks for details.

  • Please use pull requests to submit code, whether for implementation of a new feature or for a bug fix.

  • If you submit a pull request that doesn't have a test to go with it there is less chance we will merge it.

Features

Have an idea for a feature you want to implement (or would like us to consider implementing when time allows)? Simply submit a new issue describing the feature in sufficient detail to enable someone to consider implementing it. Ideally this would be in a format focusing on:

  • Who would be the user of this feature?

  • How would the feature be used (this could be a workflow, api example, etc)?

  • What need does it fill (in other words, why does the user want/need to do the described task)?

If you like, you may use the Connextra format, but it is not strictly required. For reference, that format is:

In order to [benefit], a [stakeholder] wants to [feature].

Bug Reporting

While we always strive to not have bug, we realize they will come up, and appreciate help in identifying them so they can be corrected. If you believe you have found such a thing, please tell us:

  • which version of Tim you're using

  • which version of Ruby you're using.

  • How to reproduce it. Bugs with a failing test in a pull request get extra points, though a description and stack trace, if appropriate, would be a minimum requirement for the issue to receive attention. (And of course, submitting a pull request with proper tests that also fixes the bug will get the fix in a release quicker yet!)
