OpenStack Dashboard (Horizon)

The OpenStack Dashboard is a Django based reference implementation of a web
based management interface for OpenStack.

It is based on the ``horizon`` module, which is designed to be a generic Django
app that can be re-used in other projects.

For more information about how to get started with the OpenStack Dashboard,
view the README file in the openstack-dashboard folder.

For more information about working directly with ``horizon``, see the
README file in the ``horizon`` folder.

Project Structure and Testing:

This project is a bit different from other OpenStack projects in that it has
two very distinct components underneath it: ``horizon``, and

The ``horizon`` directory holds the generic libraries and components that can
be used in any Django project. In testing, this component is set up with
buildout (see ``run_tests.sh``), and any dependencies that get added need to
be added to the ``horizon/buildout.cfg`` file.

The ``openstack-dashboard`` directory contains a reference Django project that
uses ``horizon`` and is built with a virtualenv and tested through that
environment. If dependencies are added that ``openstack-dashboard`` requires
they should be added to ``openstack-dashboard/tools/pip-requires``.

The ``run_tests.sh`` script invokes tests and analyses on both of these
components in its process, and is what Jenkins uses to verify the
stability of the project.

To run the tests::

    $ ./run_tests.sh

Building Contributor Documentation

* Building Automatically::

    $ ./run_tests.sh --docs

* Building Manually::

    $ export DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE=local.local_settings
    $ python doc/generate_autodoc_index.py
    $ sphinx-build -b html doc/source build/sphinx/html
