This package is a general-purpose stand-alone index of quickstarts and cartridges for the OpenShift hosting platform.

This repository contains two major components:

  1. A basic user interface for browsing, searching, and launching open cloud compatible applications and services, built with help from Python Flask and Twitter bootstrap.
  2. Default content for the index, which is loaded from the included quickstart.json file.

Host your own index

First you must generate you Github Client ID and Secret. Access you GitHub account settings page, select "Applications" and "Register a New Application". Fill in the form with:

Press "Register Application" and take note of your credentials.

You can spin up your own hosted instance of this project on OpenShift Online in a single click, or use the rhc command line tool to help configure your local development environment and your OpenShift-hosted environment in a single step:

rhc app create index python-2.7 GITHUB_CLIENT_ID=[github-client-id] GITHUB_CLIENT_SECRET=[github-client-secret] OO_INDEX_GITHUB_REPONAME=index OO_INDEX_GITHUB_USERNAME=[your-github-username]
cd index
git remote add upstream
git pull -s recursive -X theirs upstream master
git push

You can also provide your openshift launch url so that it takes directly to the openshift origin host of your choice: rhc app create index python-2.7 GITHUB_CLIENT_ID=[github-client-id] GITHUB_CLIENT_SECRET=[github-client-secret] OO_INDEX_GITHUB_REPONAME=index OO_INDEX_GITHUB_USERNAME=[your-github-username] OPENSHIFT_LAUNCH_URL=[your-openshift-launchURL]

Local Development

Simply start a local web server with your Application credentials:
