LXD demo server
This repository contains the backend code of the LXD online demo service.
What is it
Those containers come with a bunch of resource limitations and an expiry, when the container expires, it's automatically deleted.
The main client can be found at the URL above, with its source available here:
Installing on Ubuntu
The easiest way to get the demo server running on Ubuntu is by using the snap package.
First install and configure LXD itself:
sudo snap install lxd sudo lxd init
Then install and configure the LXD demo server:
sudo snap install lxd-demo-server sudo snap connect lxd-demo-server:lxd lxd:lxd sudo lxd-demo-server.configure
You can then access the server at: http://IP-ADDRESS:8080/
The server needs to be able to talk to a LXD daemon over the local unix socket, so you need to have a LXD daemon installed and functional before using this server.
Other than that, you can pull all the other necessary dependencies with:
go get github.com/lxc/lxd-demo-server
A very simple:
Should do the trick.
To run your own, you should start by copying the example configuration file "lxd-demo.yaml.example" to "lxd-demo.yaml", then update its content according to your environment.
You will either need a container to copy for every request or a container image to use, set that up and set the appropriate configuration key.
Once done, simply run the daemon with:
The daemon isn't verbose at all, in fact it will only log critical LXD errors.
You can test things with:
curl http://localhost:8080/1.0 curl http://localhost:8080/1.0/terms
The server monitors the current directory for changes to its configuration file. It will automatically reload the configuration after it's changed.
