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.
To install, check out the source, and use the included setup script, as:
> python setup.py install
You will also need to obtain the following related Stratis repos: dbus-client-gen, dbus-python-client-gen, into-dbus-python, dbus-signature-pyparsing.
Finally, ensure you have python3-pyparsing package installed.
After installing, running just 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.
There are unit and integration tests in the
python3-pytest is required in order to run the tests.
These can be run by setting the PYTHONPATH environment variable as shown above, and also setting the STRATIS environment variable to the absolute or relative path to your stratisd executable. For example (again using bash shell):
> STRATISD=../stratisd/target/debug/stratisd make dbus-tests
Note: Since the tests invoke
stratisd, it should not be running
independently when the tests are run.
tox, ensure python3-tox and dbus-glib-devel packages are
installed, and then run:
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
