OpenStack Golang Client

NOTE(dtroyer) Apr 2015: This repo is under heavy revision as it is being revived.

openstack/golang-client is an implementation of [OpenStack] (http://www.openstack.org/) API client in Go language. The code follows OpenStack licensing and uses its CI infrastructure for hosting. It currently implements [Identity Service v2] (http://docs.openstack.org/api/openstack-identity-service/2.0/content/) and [Object Storage v1] (http://docs.openstack.org/api/openstack-object-storage/1.0/content/).

The initial focus is on building a solid core REST Session and OpenStack authentication on which to build the usual API interfaces. The architecture if the Session and authentication is similar to that used in the current Python Keystone client library: The Session object contains the HTTP interface methods and an authentication object that provides access to the auth token and service catalog.

Current State

Code maturity is considered experimental.

  • The new Session object is functional and used by most of the code now.
  • The examples work.
  • The image tests work.
  • The obejct store tests do not work.
  • identity/v2/auth.go is now unused, will be kept around for a short time for easier reference.

Installation

Use go get git.openstack.org/openstack/golang-client. Or alternatively, download or clone the repository.

The lib was developed and tested on go 1.3. No external dependencies, so far.

Examples

The examples directory contains examples for using the SDK using real world working code. Each example starts with a two digit number followed by a name (e.g., 00-authentication.go). If you have a config.json file in the examples directory following the format of config.json.dist the example can be executed using go run [example name] setup.go. Or, all the examples can be executed running the script run-all.sh from the examples directory.

Testing

There are two types of test files. The *_test.go are standard golang unit test files. The examples can be run as integration tests.

The tests were written against the [OpenStack API specifications] (http://docs.openstack.org/api/api-specs.html). The integration test were successful against the following:

If you use another provider and successfully completed the tests, please email the maintainer(s) so your service can be mentioned here. Alternatively, if you are a service provider and can arrange a free (temporary) account, a quick test can be arranged.
