swift-manager aims to be a Ruby based OpenStack Swift Client with a git-like interface used to test and manage native Swift and AWS S3 APIs. This version builds on the excellent Ruby Fog gem. Furture versions may use native JSON/XML. Currently uses JSON for configuration files located under ~/.swift-manager.
swift-manager is targeted towards Developers to test Swift or S3 APIs. However, anyone wanting to use it to test a Swift Cloud or S3 semantics may find it useful.
Supported on Ruby 1.9.3-p125 and JRuby-1.6.7
- Ability to create/delete containers and objects in S3 and Swift native APIs. No CDN is supported at this time.
- Ability to list containers and objects (files)
- Batch jobs: a. create containers at scale by providing a container prefix and the number of containers to create b. upload files to a container (can be used for backups)
- Unix-like(read-only) shell to browse containers with TAB completion (very basic)
**Assumptions: The current implementation requires SSL at the Swift Proxy server due to Ruby Fog dependencies. Make sure to have the following in /etc/swift/proxy-server.conf
cert_file = /etc/swift/cert.crt
key_file = /etc/swift/cert.key
After installing Ruby or JRuby, run:
gem install swift-manager
- swift-manager help command
- Read examples.txt in the docs directory
ToDos (Patches are Welcome!)
In addition to continued improvement in documentation...
- CDN support and CDN enable existing containers
- Shell support for listing objects
- Write support for Shell. Example, implement"create or touch commands" to create containers and objects
- More granulor metrics for create and delete containers/objects in order to test large requests (millions)
- Implement port, URL, and other parameters for Authentiation Configuration JSON
