Stacktician - CloudFormation web front-end for stackmate

stackmate reads existing CloudFormation templates and executes them on a CloudStack deployment Unlike CloudFormation, it does not (yet) run as a web application. Instead it runs everything on the client side.

Stacktician embeds stackmate to provide the web front-end using a Rails application

Follow:

Dependencies

Stacktician uses Bundler to setup and maintain its environment. Before running stackmate for the first time you need to install Bundler (gem install bundler) and then run:

$ bundle install

Getting started quickly

Using the source

  • Get the source files using git
$ git clone http://github.com/chiradeep/stacktician.git
$ cd stacktician
  • Make sure every dependency is resolved
$ bundle install
  • Create a seed of templates in the database
$ rake db:migrate
$ rake db:seed
  • You can run Stacktician in NOOP mode: in this case it will not try to create resources on CloudStack, but just update the database with success. Before you run the Rails server:
$ export DEMO_MODE=NOOP

Otherwise, the following environment variables need to be set (change to your environment's specifics)

CS_URL=http://localhost:8080/client/api
CS_ADMIN_APIKEY=6b4IAqDFqSfpBqap1GEhKS4U8PIOpxnoS0tuAX46jXAiE7hCBO-l2zKvWm-FuyTQUFddfR59oNqMSUbSCZgoQw
CS_ADMIN_SECKEY=WM9HIBLc59XYhr2kCAS94eCrGp789cSYwSys1pgEUuV2_rhFxej8vds-sd9eMu6RtxM7Kk0K0k9G8Rtl1oxl-A

CS_LOCAL is a YAML string that provides the mappings from AWS entities to your CloudStack entities.

  • Heroku

There should be a demo app (NOOP mode) running at http://stacktician.herokuapp.com/ If you want to deploy to Heroku, you can use heroku config:set to set the environment variables.

  • Stacktician lets you self-create a login. Sign in and create a Cloudformation stack!
