Usage Examples

Connection and login:

require "cloudfoundry"
cf_client ={:target_url => ""})
cf_client.login("", "password")

Retrieve information from target cloud:

cloud_info = cf_client.cloud_info()
cloud_runtimes_info = cf_client.cloud_runtimes_info()
cloud_services_info = cf_client.cloud_services_info()

Actions for applications:

apps = cf_client.list_apps()
app_info = cf_client.app_info("appname")
app_instances = cf_client.app_instances("appname")
app_stats = cf_client.app_stats("appname")
app_crashes = cf_client.app_crashes("appname")
app_files = cf_client.app_files("appname", "/")
app_files = cf_client.app_files("appname", "/logs/stdout.log")
created = cf_client.create_app("appname", manifest)
updated = cf_client.update_app("appname", manifest)
update_info = cf_client.update_app_info("appname")
deleted = cf_client.delete_app("appname")
uploaded = cf_client.upload_app("appname", zipfile, manifest)
zipfile = cf_client.download_app("appname")

Actions for services:

services = cf_client.list_services()
service_info = cf_client.service_info("redis-12345")
created = cf_client.create_service("redis", "redis-12345")
deleted = cf_client.delete_service("redis-12345")
binded = cf_client.bind_service("redis-12345", "appname")
unbinded = cf_client.unbind_service("redis-12345", "appname")

Actions for users (some of them require an admin user):

users = cf_client.list_users()
user_info = cf_client.user_info("")
created = cf_client.create_user("", "password")
updated = cf_client.update_user("", "new_password")
deleted = cf_client.delete_user("")

We use the GitHub issue tracker to track bugs and features. Before submitting a bug report or feature request, check to make sure it hasn't already been submitted. You can indicate support for an existing issue by voting it up. When submitting a bug report, please include a Gist that includes a stack trace and any details that may be necessary to reproduce the bug, including your gem version, Ruby version, and operating system. Ideally, a bug report should include a pull request with failing specs.
