This project provides a solution for deploying and managing Apache Spark clusters in an OpenShift environment. The oshinko-webui is deployed into a project within OpenShift, and then can create, update, and destroy Apache Spark clusters in that project. Once installed, it consists of a Node.JS application that is contained within a Pod and provides a web browser based user interface for controlling the lifecycle of Spark clusters.


In general, there are two main audiences for a discussion of installing the oshinko-webui: users and developers. If you are interested in running as a user, or to test drive the application, please see the Step-by-step quickstart instructions. If you would like to get started hacking on oshinko-webui please see the Developer instructions section.

Step-by-step quickstart

These instructions assume that you have access to an OpenShift cluster and the oc command line tool. Although these instructions will help you to install the oshinko-webui into your OpenShift project, it is possible in some circumstances that you will not have enough privileges to run the installation. In the event that you are unable to create the necessary components to install the application, please consult with your OpenShift administrator.

Before performing the following instructions, you must be logged in to your account and project using the oc tool.

Step 1. Create the service account and template

For oshinko-webui to interact with OpenShift and control the Spark resources you will create, it needs a service account in your project. The service account is created with edit permissions along with the oshinko-webui template by issuing the following command:

oc create -f

Step 2. Run oshinko-webui

oc new-app --template=oshinko-webui

Developer instructions

If you are interested in developing the code for oshinko-webui or hacking on its internals, the following instructions will help you to deploy, run, and test the code.

Before getting started you will need to have access to an OpenShift cluster, the oc command line application, and the oshinko-cli command line application.

Running the app during development

You'll need to have a node environment installed (developed using NodeJS v6.3.1). You might prefer to use nvm ( to manage your node environment. Once that is set up, you can run the following:

$ npm install
$ npm install -g bower
$ bower install

Now you're ready to run the oshinko-webui server.

Note, a working local "oc" binary is expected. To run locally, you'll need a proxy to the api server running. The following will run a basic proxy, see oc proxy --help if you require something more specific.

$ oc proxy --disable-filter=true --api-prefix=/proxy &

Edit the exports in scripts/ to match your environment.

Change to the scripts directory and run

$ ./

You can pick one of these options:

  • install node.js and run node server.js

Then navigate your browser to http://localhost:<port> to see the app running in your browser.

Running unit tests

To run the unit tests:

$ npm install -g karma-cli
$ karma start test/karma.conf.js

End to end testing

The end to end tests can be run using the test/ script. This script assumes a current login to an OpenShift instance and it runs the test in the current project (it's recommended to create a fresh project for the test run). It also assumes that the local oshinko-webui repository has been setup (ie all the dependencies have been installed and the webui components have been installed with npm and bower as noted above).

The test/ script will create a serviceaccount, templates, a configmap, etc in the current project as part of the test.

As a convenience, the test-e2e and test-e2e-secure make targets can be used to run the test. These targets will first create a new OpenShift project with prefix webui-, build a local image and then run the test with defaults. For example:

$ make test-e2e
$ make test-e2e-secure

The environment variables below can be set for the call to make, for example:

$ WEBUI_START_XVFB=false make test-e2e

Environment variables for test configuration

There are several enviroment variables that you can set to configure the tests:

WEBUI_START_XVFB (default is true)

This causes the test to start an Xvfb server running for display 99 if it's not already running (required).

WEBUI_TEST_IMAGE (default is oshinko-webui:latest if WEBUI_TEST_LOCAL_IMAGE is true or otherwise)

The image to use for testing. The defaults are set up to reference an image from the local docker host (ie, one that has just been built) but this setting can be used to reference an image from an arbitrary docker registry.

WEBUI_TEST_LOCAL_IMAGE (default is true)

This indicates that the s2i images to be tested are local, that is they are available from the local docker daemon but not in an external registry like docker hub.

If this is set to "false", the test image is assumed to be in an external registy. WEBUI_TEST_INTEGRATED_REGISTRY and WEBUI_TEST_EXTERNAL_REGISTRY will be ignored because there will be no need to push local images to a registry.


This is the IP address of the integrated registry. Use this setting when:

  • running the test using local images
  • running the test on a host where the integrated registry is reachable (like the OpenShift master)
  • using an OpenShift instance that was not created with oc cluster up
$ WEBUI_TEST_INTEGRATED_REGISTRY=172.123.456.89:5000 test/


This is the IP address of a docker registry. If this is set then WEBUI_TEST_EXTERNAL_USER and WEBUI_TEST_EXTERNAL_PASSWORD must also be set so that the tests can log in to the registry. Use this setting when:

  • running the test using local images
  • running the test from a host where the integrated registry is not reachable
  • using an OpenShift instance that was not created with oc cluster up

WEBUI_TEST_SECURE (default is false)

Use the template for a secure webui. If this is set to true and the OpenShift instance was not created with oc cluster up, then WEBUI_TEST_SECURE_USER and WEBUI_TEST_SECURE_PASSWORD should be used to set login credentials for the webui.

WEBUI_TEST_SECURE_USER (default is "developer")

Username to use for a secure webui test

WEBUI_TEST_SECURE_PASSWORD (default is "deverloperpass")

Password to use for a secure webui test

WEBUI_TEST_RESOURCES (default is local tools/resources.yaml)

The resources.yaml file used to set up test resources. The value may be a file path, or it may be a url such as

Dependencies for end to end tests

The end to end tests require a number of dependencies. The test/ script has been provided to install the dependencies and setup an oshinko-webui repository for testing. This is especially helpful when setting up a clean machine.

Note, test/ assumes passwordless sudo.

You can look through the script and see what it installs and make sure those things are installed yourself or you can do this:

$ test/  # from the oshinko-webui main directory

The script should be idempotent.
