rackspace-openstack

A client implementation for the Rackspace Openstack API (v2)

THIS PACKAGE IS NOW DEPRECATED

All functionality in this package is either implemented in pkgcloud or is in the process of being migrated to pkgcloud. Please only use this package for prototyping at this point as the next published version will remove functionality entirely.

Usage

The rackspace-openstack module is compliant with the Rackspace Openstack API. rackspace-openstack is a nearly feature complete wrapper for the Rackspace Openstack APIs and should work in most scenarios.

Supported APIs

Currently, the following feature areas are supported:

  • Open Stack CloudServers
  • CloudDNS
  • CloudLoadBalancers

Getting Started

Creating and authenticating your client against the Rackspace API is simple:

var rackspace = require('rackspace-openstack'),
    config = {
        auth : {
            username: 'your-username',
            apiKey: 'your-api-key'
    }
};

var client = rackspace.createClient(config);

client.authorize(function(err) {
    if (err) {
        process.exit(1);
        return;
    }

    // Do stuff here
}

Creating a Server

client.createServer({
    image: '5cebb13a-f783-4f8c-8058-c4182c724ccd',
    flavor: 2,
    name: 'My Server'
}, function(err, server) {

    // Do stuff with your new server

});

Getting a domain and creating a record

var myDomainId = 1234567;

client.getDomain(myDomainId, function(err, domain) {
    domain.addRecordsWithWait([
        {
            name: 'foo.' + domain.name,
            type: 'A',
            data: '1.2.3.4'
        }
    ], function(err, records) {

        // use your new records here
    });
});

Create a cloud load balancer

client.createLoadBalancer({
    name: 'My Load Balancer',
    nodes: [ {
        address: '192.168.1.1',
        port: '80',
        condition: rackspace.NodeConditions.ENABLED
    } ],
    protocol: rackspace.Protocols.HTTP,
    virtualIps: [{
        type: rackspace.VirtualIpTypes.PUBLIC
    }]
}, function(err, loadBalancer) {
    // Use your new Load Balancer here
});

Create and attach a Cloud BlockStorage Volume

client.getServer(serverId, function(err, server) {
    client.createVolume({
        display_name: 'my new volume ' + serverId,
        size: 100,
        volume_type: rackspace.VolumeType.SATA
    }, function(err, volume) {
        server.attachVolume({
            volumeId: volume.id,
            device: '/dev/xvdb'
        }, function(err, result) {
            // Use your Volume Here
        });
    });
});

All rackspace-openstack tests are available by running make test
