Libretto

Libretto is a Golang library to create Virtual Machines (VM) on any cloud and Virtual Machine hosting platforms such as AWS, Azure, OpenStack, vSphere, VMware Workstation/Fusion, Exoscale or VirtualBox. Different providers have different utilities and API interfaces to achieve that, but the abstractions of their interfaces are quite similar.

Supported Providers

  • AWS
  • Azure
  • DigitalOcean
  • Exoscale
  • Google Cloud Platform
  • Openstack (Mirantis)
  • Virtualbox >= 4.3.30
  • VMware Fusion >= 8.0
  • VMware Workstation >= 8.0
  • vSphere > 5.0

Getting Started

Go version 1.6+ is required.

go get github.com/apcera/libretto/...

go build ./...

FAQ

  • Why write Libretto?

We couldn't find a suitable Golang binding for this functionality, so we created this library. There are a couple of similar libraries but not in golang (fog.io in ruby, jcloud in java, libcloud in python).

Docker Machine is an effort toward that direction, but it is very Docker specific, and its providers dictate the VM images in many cases to reduce the number of parameters, but reduces the flexibility of the tool.

  • What is the scope for Libretto?

Virtual machine creation and life cycle management as well as common configuration steps during a deploy such as configuring SSH keys.

  • Why use this library over other tools?

Actively used and developed. Can be called natively from Go in a Go application instead of shelling out to other tools.

Known Issues

  • Virtualbox networking is limited to using Bridged mode.

    Host to guest OS connectivity is not possible when using NAT networking in Virtualbox. As a result, presently networking configuration for VMs provisioned using the Virtualbox provider is limited to using Bridged networking. There should be a DHCP server running on the network that the VMs are bridged to.

Supported Platforms

  • Linux x64
  • Windows 7 >= x64
  • OS X >= 10.11

Other Operating Systems might work but have not been tested.

Adding Provisioners

Create a new package inside the virtualmachine folder and implement the Libretto VirtualMachine interface. The provider should work at the minimum on the Linux, Windows and OS X platforms unless it is a platform specific provider in which case it should at least compile and return a descriptive error.

Dependencies should be versioned and stored using gvt (https://github.com/FiloSottile/gvt)

Errors should be lower case so that they can be wrapped by the calling code. If possible, types defined in the top level virtualmachine package should be reused.
