README.md

Note:

  • This is a quick copy and paste job(weekend hacking), you should not consider it anything but experimental right now
  • But I wanted to share the idea already with others

DISCLAIMER:

this is alpha sofware . Don't trust it:) And don't complain if it removes all your EC instances at once....

Kudos to great stuff

  • Vagrant is great for testing machines on your local machines
  • Fog is a great fog library for managing cloud systems

Without those two, this project would not be possible. Kudos to the authors!

This project tries to combine both:

  • Because your local machine might outgrow your complexity your local machine can handle
  • use the same vagrantfile for local dev, and cloud devel

Some notes before you dive in

  • I could probably have integrated with vagrant code but this would have taken me longer to understand vagrant code
  • I didn't want the dependency on virtualbox
  • The machines it creates will have the prefix as defined in the Mccloudfile, so this should not pollute your stuff

Todo:

  • provision to other providers than ec2
  • try to stay fully compatible with Vagrantfile

How it will work/works

Create a config file for fog. Note that these are spaces in front and no tabs

$ cat $HOME/.fog

:default:
  :aws_access_key_id: 
  :aws_secret_access_key: 

Create a Mccloud project

$ mccloud init

This will create a Mccloudfile

Edit your Mccloud appropriate

    Mccloud::Config.run do |config|
      # All Mccloud configuration is done here. For a detailed explanation
      # and listing of configuration options, please view the documentation
      # online.

      config.mccloud.prefix="mccloud"

      config.vm.define :web do |web_config|
        web_config.vm.ami = "ami-cef405a7"
        web_config.vm.provider="AWS"

        #web_config.vm.provisioner=:chef_solo
        #web_config.vm.provisioner=:puppet

        web_config.vm.provider_options={ 
          # ID = "ami-cef405a7" = x64 Ubuntu 10.10
          :image_id => 'ami-cef405a7', 
          # Flavors
          :flavor_id => 't1.micro',
          #:flavor_id => 'm1.large',
          :groups => %w(ec2securitygroup), :key_name => "ec2-keyname",
          :availability_zone => "us-east-1b" 
        }
        web_config.vm.forward_port("http", 80, 8080)
        web_config.vm.user="ubuntu"
        web_config.vm.bootstrap="ruby-bootstrap.sh"
        web_config.vm.key="my-ec2-key.pem"
      end

      ### Provisioners
      config.vm.provision :puppet do |puppet|
        puppet.pp_path = "/tmp/vagrant-puppet"
        #puppet.manifests_path = "puppet/manifests"
        #puppet.module_path = "puppet/modules"
        puppet.manifest_file = "newbox.pp"
      end

      config.vm.provision :chef_solo do |chef|
         chef.cookbooks_path = [""]
         chef.add_recipe("")
         # You may also specify custom JSON attributes:
         chef.json.merge!({})
      end
    end

Start your machines

If the machine does not yet exist, it will also run bootstrap

$ mccloud up web

Check the status

$ mccloud status

Bootstrap the machine

$ mccloud bootstrap web

(interactive) Login into the machine

$ mccloud ssh web

run a command on a machine

$ mccloud command web "who am i"

Halt the machine

$ mccloud halt web

Start the machine again

$ mccloud up web

Provision the machine

$ mccloud provision web

Port forwarding server

$ mccloud server

Destroy the machine again

$ mccloud destroy web
