RightScale API Gem

A client library for the RightScale API. Still under development, but it has enough written to be useful.

There aren't any tests yet and it doesn't fully cover all the object types RightScale's API supports.

RightScale's API Docs

Usage Examples

###Stopping a Server RightScaleAPI.login user, pass account = RightScaleAPI::Account.get id foo_server = account.servers.find {|s| s.nickname == 'foo'} foo_server.stop

Spinning up a new server with an elastic ip associated at launch

RightScaleAPI.login user, pass
account = RightScaleAPI::Account.get id

ip = account.create_ec2_elastic_ip :nickname => 'foo'

foo_template = account.server_templates.find {|s| s.nickname == 'foo template'}
foo_deployment = account.deployments.find {|d| d.nickname == 'foo deployment'}
foo_security_group = account.ec2_security_groups.find { |s| s.aws_group_name == 'foo security group' }

#since there is no index for ssh keys, you need to find their id through the UI and get them directly(ugh).
foo_ssh_key =  account.get_ec2_ssh_key("1234567890")

server = account.create_server :nickname => 'foo',
			  :server_template => foo_template,
		  :deployment => foo_deployment,
		  :ec2_ssh_key => foo_ssh_key,
		  :ec2_security_groups => foo_security_group

#we do this as an update, because rightscale's api doesn't let you set this on create (as of May 2010)
server.update :associate_eip_at_launch => true, 
              :ec2_elastic_ip => ip
server.start

Create a Deployment

account.create_deployment :nickname	   => 'foo',
			      :description => 'foo bar baz'

Show all Servers

account.servers

Show an individual server

account.servers.find {|server| server.id ==}
