Applince WebVirtMgr for personal use

1. Introduction

WebVirtMgr is a libvirt-based Web interface for managing virtual machines. It allows you to create and configure new domains, and adjust a domain's resource allocation. A VNC viewer over a SSH tunnel presents a full graphical console to the guest domain. KVM is currently the only hypervisor supported.

Technology:

The application logic is written in Python & Django. The LIBVIRT Python bindings are used to interacting with the underlying hypervisor.
