A Django project to demonstrate features of the Horizon app and OpenStack dashboard.
JavaScript Python Shell
branch: master


Horizon Customization Demo Dashboard

This Django project demonstrates how the Horizon app can be used to construct customized dashboards (for OpenStack or anything else).

The horizon module is pulled down from GitHub during setup (see setup instructions below) and added to the virtual environment.

Setup Instructions

The following should get you started:

$ git clone
$ cd horizon_demo
$ python tools/
$ cp demo_dashboard/local/ demo_dashboard/local/

Edit the file as needed.

When you're ready to run the development server:

$ ./ --runserver

Using Fake Test Data

If you want a more interesting visualization demo, you can uncomment line 24 of dashboards/visualizations/flocking/ to load fake instance data instead of using data from a real Nova endpoint.
