CLI for Stratis Project
A CLI for the Stratis Project.
stratis-cli is stateless and contains a minimum of storage-related
logic. Its code mainly consists of parsing arguments from the command
line, calling methods that are part of the Stratis D-Bus API, and then
processing and displaying the results.
You can install
stratis-cli directly from the
stratis-cli has a number of dependencies that may not already be
installed. You may choose to allow the setup script to install any missing
dependencies from PyPi, or you may prefer to install the dependencies using
your distribution's package manager. All
dependencies are listed in
stratis-cli's setup.py file, in the
install_requires field. If you choose to install the dependencies
using your installation's package manager, you should do so before you
run the setup.py script.
Finally, run the setup.py script as:
> python setup.py install
After installing, running requires invoking the script, as:
> stratis --help
> stratis --version
To run without installing, check out the source, change to the top
directory and set the
PYTHONPATH environment variable to include
library dependencies. For example (if using bash shell):
> export PYTHONPATH="src:../dbus-client-gen/src:../dbus-python-client-gen/src:../into-dbus-python/src:../dbus-signature-pyparsing/src" > ./bin/stratis --help
stratis uses stratisd's API, most operations will fail
unless you are also running the Stratis daemon.
Various testing modalities are used to verify various properties of
stratis. Please consult the README files in the
for further information.
The project has, and will continue to maintain, 100% code coverage.
Internal Software Architecture
stratis is implemented in two parts:
- The parser package handles configuring the command line parser, which uses the Python argparse package.
- The actions package receives valid commands from the parser package
and executes them, invoking the D-Bus API as needed. The parser
passes command-line arguments given by the user to methods in the
actions package using a
Python Coding Style
stratis conforms to PEP-8 style guidelines as enforced by the
