LXD Mosaic

This is an application you can use to do basic management for multiple instances of LXD

Why ?

Most of the other LXD managers I saw are only used to manage one LXD instance which is no good as I have many!

They also don't really touch on profiles or cloud config which I make heavy use of.

Install Prep

LXD Hosts

You need to enable access from the network on your LXD hosts first, you can do this by logging onto your hosts and executing the following (make sure to change the password from "some-secret_string")

lxc config set core.https_address [::]
lxc config set core.trust_password some-secret-string

When first accessing the web application it will ask you about your "trust password" which is the password you set in the last command


The preferred installation method is using a ubuntu container.

Install script

Warning this installs apache, docker, mysql-server, php, git and other dependencies its best to run in a container or an empty VM to avoid cluttering your system

In examples you will find an bash script called this will handle the installation of dependencies and setup this program.

It handles the cloning of the repository so you can just do;

# Download the script
curl >>
# Then give the script execution permissions
chmod +x
# Then run bellow to setup the program
sudo ./

Once installation is complete you need to go to into your browser and goto;

https://host_ip_address:3000 and allow the self signed certificate (for node)

Then go to the following web address to run the application



This project was started sometime around 2017 so the code is very meh, it won't win any prizes.

It will improve over time but it will do for a 0.1 (symfony request obj + symfony responses will be a good start).

If you take great offence please feel free to open a pull request that improves it other wise keep the issues related to bugs + feature requests.

I have opened a bunch of issues for things that I want to implement and need doing any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cloud Config

Cloud config is a incredibly powerful tool to provision containers on first run.

This program contains the basic functionality to create and manage cloud config files and deploy them to containers (through profiles) onto one or many hosts.

Most of the information about cloud config can be read here here

Built With

Use lots of composer libraries and an extended coreui for the frontend

You can’t perform that action at this time.
