conu

PyPI PyPI - License PyPI - Status Codacy Badge Build Status

conu is a library which makes it easy to write tests for your containers and is handy when playing with containers inside your code. It defines an API to access and manipulate containers, images and provides more, very helpful functions.

example

Installation

PyPI

conu is available on PyPI, so you can easily install it with pip:

$ pip install --user conu

Fedora

If you are running Fedora, we have packaged conu in an RPM:

$ dnf install python{2,3}-conu

Please visit our documentation for more info on installation.

Docker container

You can try conu also in the container, but you have to:

  • mount docker socket
  • use --cap-add SYS_ADMIN for mounting containers/images
  • set --privileged option or turn off the SELinux to allow access to docker inside the container:
docker run -it --rm \
-v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock:z \
--cap-add SYS_ADMIN \
--privileged \
usercont/conu:0.5.0 python3
>>> from conu import DockerBackend
>>> backend = DockerBackend()
11:52:13.022 backend.py        INFO   conu has initiated, welcome to the party!
>>> image = backend.ImageClass('docker.io/library/nginx')
11:52:32.562 __init__.py       INFO   docker environment info: ...
>>> container = image.run_via_binary()
11:52:51.910 image.py          INFO   run container via binary in background

If you want to run custom source file, mount it to the container in the following way:

docker run -it --rm \
-v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock:z \
-v $PWD/my_source.py:/app/my_source.py:z \
--cap-add SYS_ADMIN \
--privileged \
usercont/conu:0.5.0 python3 /app/my_source.py

Features

Container images

  • load, pull, mount and remove container images
  • obtain low-level image metadata
  • check presence of files and directories inside a container image
  • read files inside an image
  • get selinux context of files in an image
  • extend image using s2i
  • check all packages in image are signed with a key
  • run image inside Kubernetes pod

Container

  • kill, get logs, exec a command, mount, remove, start, stop, wait, run - via api or via binary
  • get low-level container metadata
  • shortcut methods for getting:
    • IPv4 and IPv6 addresses
    • PID of root process in the container
    • port mappings
    • container status
  • HTTP requests support

  • shortcut methods for getting:
    • pod logs
    • pod IP
    • pod phase
    • pod condition
    • service IP
  • perform checks whether
    • pod is ready
    • all pods are ready for specific deployment

OpenShift

  • create new app using oc new-app command
    • support building s2i images from remote repository
    • support building s2i images from local path
    • support creating new applications using OpenShift templates
  • push images to internal OpenShift registry
  • request service
  • waiting until service is ready
  • cleanup objects of specific application in current namespace

Docker example

Let's look at a practical example:

$ cat examples/readme_webserver.py
#!/usr/bin/python3

import logging

from conu import DockerRunBuilder, DockerBackend

# our webserver will be accessible on this port
port = 8765

# we'll utilize this container image
image_name = "registry.fedoraproject.org/fedora"
image_tag = "27"

# we'll run our container using docker engine
with DockerBackend(logging_level=logging.DEBUG) as backend:
    # the image will be pulled if it's not present
    image = backend.ImageClass(image_name, tag=image_tag)

    # the command to run in a container
    command = ["python3", "-m", "http.server", "--bind", "0.0.0.0", "%d" % port]
    # let's run the container (in the background)
    container = image.run_via_binary(command=command)
    try:
        # we need to wait for the webserver to start serving
        container.wait_for_port(port)
        # GET on /
        # this is standard `requests.Response`
        http_response = container.http_request(path="/", port=port)
        assert http_response.ok
        assert '<a href="etc/">etc/</a>' in http_response.content.decode("utf-8")
        # let's access /etc/passwd
        etc_passwd = container.http_request(path="/etc/passwd", port=port).content.decode("utf-8")
        assert 'root:x:0:0:root:/root:' in etc_passwd
        # we can also access it directly on disk and compare
        with container.mount() as fs:
            assert etc_passwd == fs.read_file("/etc/passwd")
    finally:
        container.kill()
        container.delete()

Let's run it and look at the logs:

The test passed! The logs should be easy to read, so you should have pretty good overview of what happened.

Kubernetes

Use conu with minikube locally

If you want to test your images in Kubernetes locally, you will need to run kubernetes cluster on your host. We recommend to use minikube, for installation follow instructions in minikube github repository.

After that, run minikube like this:

$ minikube start

Kubernetes example

$ cat examples/k8s_deployment.py
from conu.backend.k8s.backend import K8sBackend
from conu.backend.k8s.deployment import Deployment
from conu.utils import get_oc_api_token

# obtain API key from OpenShift cluster. If you are not using OpenShift cluster for kubernetes tests
# you need to replace `get_oc_api_token()` with your Bearer token. More information here:
# https://kubernetes.io/docs/reference/access-authn-authz/authentication/
api_key = get_oc_api_token()

with K8sBackend(api_key=api_key) as k8s_backend:

    namespace = k8s_backend.create_namespace()

    template = """
    apiVersion: apps/v1
    kind: Deployment
    metadata:
      name: hello-world
      labels:
        app: hello-world
    spec:
      replicas: 3
      selector:
        matchLabels:
          app: hello-world
      template:
        metadata:
          labels:
            app: hello-world
        spec:
          containers:
          - name: hello-openshift
            image: openshift/hello-openshift
    """

    test_deployment = Deployment(namespace=namespace, from_template=template,
                                 create_in_cluster=True)

    try:
        test_deployment.wait(200)
        assert test_deployment.all_pods_ready()
    finally:
        test_deployment.delete()
        k8s_backend.delete_namespace(namespace)

Let's run it and look at the logs:

$ python3 examples/k8s_deployment.py
13:23:09.479 backend.py        INFO   conu has initiated, welcome to the party!
13:23:09.523 backend.py        INFO   Creating namespace: namespace-m4cz

13:23:28.654 backend.py        INFO   Deleting namespace: namespace-m4cz

Openshift

Use conu for testing locally

If you want to test your images in OpenShift locally, you need to run OpenShift cluster on your host. You can install it by following instructions in OpenShift origin or minishift github repositories.

After that, you may need to setup cluster, here is example setup:

oc cluster up
oc login -u system:admin
oadm policy add-role-to-user system:registry developer
oadm policy add-role-to-user admin developer
oadm policy add-role-to-user system:image-builder developer
oadm policy add-cluster-role-to-user cluster-reader developer
oadm policy add-cluster-role-to-user admin developer
oadm policy add-cluster-role-to-user cluster-admin developer
oc login -u developer -p developer

For more information, why do you need to grant all these rights to user see accessing registry

OpenShift example

$ cat examples/oepnshift/openshift_s2i_remote.py
import logging

from conu.backend.origin.backend import OpenshiftBackend
from conu.backend.docker.backend import DockerBackend
from conu.utils import get_oc_api_token

api_key = get_oc_api_token()
with OpenshiftBackend(api_key=api_key, logging_level=logging.DEBUG) as openshift_backend:
    with DockerBackend(logging_level=logging.DEBUG) as backend:
        # builder image
        python_image = backend.ImageClass("centos/python-36-centos7")

        # docker login inside OpenShift internal registry
        OpenshiftBackend.login_to_registry('developer')

        # create new app from remote source in OpenShift cluster
        app_name = openshift_backend.new_app(python_image,
                                             source="https://github.com/openshift/django-ex.git",
                                             project='myproject')

        try:
            # wait until service is ready to accept requests
            openshift_backend.wait_for_service(
                app_name=app_name,
                expected_output='Welcome to your Django application on OpenShift',
                timeout=300)
        finally:
            openshift_backend.clean_project(app_name)
