Abiquo API Command Line Tool

This project is a simple command line tool for the Abiquo Cloud Platform API, using Jython as a wrapper to the jclouds Abiquo provider. To understand the code and adapt it to your needs, you may want to take a look at:

Requirements

To run Kahuna you will need to install Maven >= 2.2.1 and JRE >= 1.6. Jython >= 2.5.2 is also required, but the setup script will install it for you.

Installation

You can install Kahuna with the setup script:

git clone git://github.com/nacx/kahuna.git
cd kahuna
chmod u+x setup.sh
sudo ./setup.sh

By default the setup script will install Jython 2.5.3 and virtualenv in your system. If you already have a Jython runtime and want to install Kahuna in it, you can instead execute the setup script as follows (virtualenv is required, so make sure it is already installed if you are using this option):

sudo ./setup.sh -j /your/jython/install/directory

To see a complete list of installation options you can run:

./setup.sh -h

Running

You can run now the command line as follows. If you run it without parameters, it will print the help with all the available options:

$ kahuna

Usage: kahuna <plugin> <command> [<options>]
The following plugins are available:

Interactive shell plugin. 
    shell open     Opens an interactive shell.

Template plugin. 
    template find    Find a template given its name. 
    template list    List all available templates. 

Virtual machine plugin. 
    vm create       Creates a virtual machine based on a given template. 
    vm delete       Delete a virtual machine given its name. 
    vm deploy       Deploy an existing virtual machine given its name. 
    vm find         Find a virtual machine given its name. 
    vm list         List all virtual machines. 
    vm undeploy     Undeploy an existing virtual machine given its name. 

Use it interactively

You can also perform actions against the Api in an interactive way. You just need to use the 'shell' plugin as follows:

$ kahuna shell open
Jython 2.5.2 (Release_2_5_2:7206, Mar 2 2011, 23:12:06) 
[Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (Sun Microsystems Inc.)] on java1.6.0_18

>>> from kahuna.session import ContextLoader
>>> ctx = ContextLoader().load()
Using endpoint: http://10.60.1.222/api
>>> cloud = ctx.getCloudService()         
>>> cloud.listVirtualDatacenters()
[VirtualDatacenter [id=11, type=XENSERVER, name=Kaahumanu]]
>>> vdc = cloud.listVirtualDatacenters()[0]
>>> vdc.setName("Updated VDC")
>>> vdc.update()
>>> cloud.listVirtualDatacenters()         
[VirtualDatacenter [id=11, type=XENSERVER, name=Updated VDC]]
>>> ctx.close()
>>> exit()
