The OpenShift command line tools allow you to manage your OpenShift applications from the command line. The Getting Started guide has additional info on installing the tool on each supported operating system.
Please stop by #openshift on irc.freenode.net if you have any questions or comments. For more information about OpenShift, visit https://openshift.redhat.com or the OpenShift support page https://openshift.redhat.com/support.
RHC from rubygems.org is built on Ruby 1.8.7. RHC does have conditional
dependencies during build time, so it can be built on multiple versions of Ruby.
If you are running into any dependency issues when using RHC, please try to build RHC locally using
gem build rhc.gemspec to use the correct dependencies.
Using RHC to create an application
- ruby (1.8.7 or later)
Step 1: Run the setup command to configure your system:
$ rhc setup
Follow the instructions in setup to set your SSH keys and create a domain. The name you choose for your domain will form part of your application's public URL.
Step 2: Create an OpenShift application:
$ rhc app create -a appname -r /path/to/new/git/repo -t <framework Ex: php-5.3>
Once that's complete, follow the directions printed at the end of running rhc app create.
Making changes to your application
Once your site is created, updating it is as simple as making changes to your git repo. Commit them, then push. For example:
$ edit index.php $ git commit -a -m "what I did" $ git push
Then just reload your web page to see the changes.
OS X Notes:
git: OS X 10.6 comes w/ ssh and ruby, but not with git, unless you have Xcode 4.0.x installed.
If you do not have Xcode, you can obtain a pre-packaged version of git from:
Installing git from MacPorts/HomeBrew/Fink/etc requires Xcode.
Now obtain the client code, either via 'git clone' as above or via the rhc gem.
Developing / Contributing
We expect code contributions to follow these standards:
- Ensure code matches the GitHub Ruby styleguide, except where the file establishes a different standard.
- We use RSpec for functional testing and Cucumber for our high level
integration tests. Specs are in 'spec/' and can be run with
bundle exec rake spec. Features are in 'features/' and can be run with
bundle exec rake features(although these tests runs against the gem installed locally so you will need to gem install first). See README.md in the features dir for more info.
- We maintain 100% line coverage of all newly added code via spec
testing. The build will fail if new code is added and it does not
have full line coverage. Some old code is currently excluded until it
can be refactored. Run
bundle exec rake specon Ruby 1.9+ to see your code coverage level.
- When writing a new Command please follow ADDING_COMMANDS.md
Once you've made your changes:
- Fork the code
- Create a topic branch -
git checkout -b my_branch
- Push to your branch -
git push origin my_branch
- Create a Pull Request from your branch
- That's it!
If you use vim, we've included a .vimrc in the root of this project. In order to use it, install https://github.com/MarcWeber/vim-addon-local-vimrc
