horizon-openfoam 1.0.1

OpenFOAM horizon dashboard app.

This repository provides a dashboard for the OpenStack Horizon application. To use it, you must also install the backend application.

Installing via pip to an existing OpenStack Horizon installation

You can install the horizon-openfoam dashboard via pip package manager:

pip install horizon-openfoam

Edit openstack_dashboard/local/local_settings.py and add the following parameters at the end:

OFCLOUD_API_URL         = 'your_ofcloud_api_url'
S3_ACCESS_KEY_ID        = 'your_s3_access_key_id'
S3_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY    = 'your_s3_secret_access_key'
S3_HOST                 = 's3 host'
S3_PORT                 = 443

The OFCLOUD_API_URL is the root URL of the OpenFOAM Backend.

Then enable the dashboard by copying the _6010_horizon-openfoam.py to openstack-dashboard/openstack_dashboard/local/enabled (usually under /usr/share)

After installing restart your apache2 server where horizon is running.

Ubuntu/debian:

systemctl restart apache2.service

CentOS:

systemctl restart httpd.service

Installing locally

In order to use the OpenFOAM Horizon dashboard, one must first clone the OpenStack’s Horizon project and checkout the Liberty version:

git clone https://github.com/openstack/horizon.git
git checkout stable/liberty

Install the required packages (we suggest to use virtualenv for this):

cd horizon
pip install -r requirements.txt

Then add the ofcloud dashboard submodule

cd horizon/openstack_dashboard/dashboards/
git submodule add --name ofcloud https://github.com/mikelangelo-project/openfoam-ui.git ofcloud

In order to enable the dashboard, go to horizon/openstack_dashboard/enabled. This directory contains several files configuring the dashboards and panels. File ordering is important in that it sets the structure of the Horizon dashboard.

Create a file in this directory, for example _50_ofcloud.py and copy the following content:

# The name of the dashboard to be added to HORIZON['dashboards']. Required.
DASHBOARD = 'ofcloud'

# If set to True, this dashboard will not be added to the settings.
DISABLED = False

# A list of applications to be added to INSTALLED_APPS.
ADD_INSTALLED_APPS = [
    'openstack_dashboard.dashboards.ofcloud',
    ]

Finally, edit the local settings file (horizon/openstack_dashboard/local/local_settings.py) and put the following settings (replace with values appropriate to your system setup):

OFCLOUD_API_URL         = 'ofcloud-backend-url'
S3_ACCESS_KEY_ID        = 'your-s3-key'
S3_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY    = 'your-s3-secrect-key'
S3_HOST                 = 's3-host'
S3_PORT                 = s3-port

The OFCLOUD_API_URL is the root URL of the OpenFOAM Backend.

Running

Start the OpenStack Horizon application, login and look for the OpenFOAM Cloud dashboard.

cd horizon
python manage.py runserver 0.0.0.0:8000
