## Intro This is a web interface to libvirt. It is currently in the alpha stage of development, and thus far from feature complete or stable. Currently, it is capable of: * Viewing basic info about a node, it's networks and storage pools. * Viewing a bit more info about domains and their state. * Connecting a Java-based VNC viewer to a console. The goal is to provide a simple web interface to libvirt. Quite like virt-manager now provides, but for the web. Not like oVirt, which is something you can't simply drop on top of your existing libvirt installation. The project is distributed with the GNU GPL version 2 license. A copy is included as the LICENSE file. ## Dependencies There's a bunch of dependencies. Most of these will be installable by your distribution's package manager. If problems occur, check the versions of the packages you are running. Here's a brief list of dependencies, and their version numbers, that were used during development. Sometimes, a slightly older version may work. * Python 2.6.2 ( http://python.org/ ) * lxml 2.2.1 ( http://codespeak.net/lxml/ ) * Twisted 8.2.0 ( http://twistedmatrix.com/ ) * Cheetah 2.2.1 ( http://cheetahtemplate.org/ ) * CherryPy 3.1.2 ( http://cherrypy.org/ ) * libvirt 0.6.1 ( http://libvirt.org/ ) * pyOpenSSL 0.7.2 ( http://pyopenssl.sourceforge.net/ ) * PyCrypto 2.0.1 ( http://www.amk.ca/python/code/crypto.html ) * pyasn1 0.0.8a ( http://pyasn1.sourceforge.net/ ) And for building the Java VNC viewer applet: * Sun JDK 6 ( http://java.sun.com/javase/ ) ## Quick start Build the Java VNC viewer applet. $ cd vncviewer $ make all $ cd .. $ cp vncviewer/VncViewer.jar static/ Generate an RSA keypair and certificate for the website: $ ./gencert.sh Take the sample config file and customize it: $ cp config.py.sample config.py $ nano config.py Start the server: $ ./server.py Navigate to: https://localhost:8443/ ### Additional notes When using an SSH connection, the recommended way is to set up a password-less keypair for the website. ~/.ssh/config is read to find out where the private key is stored, so even if you have a working keypair, make sure you explicitely specify where it's located in there. For example, set up your ~/.ssh/config as: Host virthost Hostname virthost.myorg.org Username virtuser IdentityFile ~/.ssh/id_rsa.virt PreferredAuthentications publickey in ./config.py set LIBVIRT_URIS to: ['qemu+ssh://virthost/system']
