[![Swagger API Reference](https://img.shields.io/badge/swagger-docs-blue.svg)](Documentation/cnr-api-swagger.yaml)

CNR implements a registry for storing Kubernetes application manifests that attempts to reuse as much knowledge from the rest of the Linux container ecosystem as possible.

Differentiating features include:

- A protocol and data model that can more easily be implemented by pre-existing container registries
- This includes a common API for uploading, downloading, and searching for applications
- The reuse and integration with many elements from [OCI](https://www.opencontainers.org)
- Content addressable manifest scheme for security, signing, and non-trusted mirroring
- Reuse of common data structures such as Descriptors
- Unification of Manifest Lists as the means of content negoitation for both Images and Applications

## Getting started

1. git clone https://github.com/cn-app-registry/cnr-server.git && cd cnr-server
2. pip install -e . && pip install gunicorn
3. Run the cnr-server on port 5000 `gunicorn cnr.api.wsgi:app -b :5000`
or "./run-server"
4. See the [curl-based examples](Documentation/test.sh)

## Architecture at a glance

There are two top-level objects:

- Package: metadata describing an application
- Blob: a gzipped tarball of the package encoded in base64

Packages are primarily indexed by 3 notable fields:

- package-name: it follows container-image format: `namespace/name`.
- release: it's the version of the package, immutable it can be viewed as an alias to a digest
- mediaType: the format of the package formats (eg: docker-compose, dab, helm, kpm)

Data storage is specified by the `STORAGE` environment variable. The following are supported:

- `filesystem` (default)
- [`etcd`](https://github.com/coreos/etcd)
- [`redis`](https://github.com/antirez/redis)

## Demo using using [Helm](https://github.com/kubernetes/helm) charts

### Publish a chart

Create and encode the chart tarball

```
~/charts/elasticsearch $
tar czvf ../elastichart.tar.gz Chart.yaml manifests README.md
cat ../elastichart.tar.gz | base64 -w 0

```

POST the chart to CNR

```
curl -XPOST http://localhost:5000/api/v1/packages/myname/elasticsearch -d '
{
"blob": "H4sIAP3mAFgAA....",
"release": "2.2.1",
"media_type": "helm"
}'
```

### Pull the chart

Find the digest from the package-name/release/media-type

```
curl -XGET http://localhost:5000/api/v1/packages/myname/elasticsearch/2.2.1/helm
{
"channels": [],
"content": {
"digest": "72ed15c9a65961ecd034cca098ec18eb99002cd402824aae8a674a8ae41bd0ef",
"mediaType": "application/vnd.cnr.package.helm.v1.tar+gzip",
"size": 583,
"urls": []
},
"created_at": "2016-11-16T17:13:07.806579",
"mediaType": "application/vnd.cnr.package-manifest.helm.v1.json",
"package": "myname/elasticsearch",
"release": "2.2.1"
}

```

Fetch the blob

```
curl -XGET \
http://localhost:5000/api/v1/packages/myname/elasticsearch/blobs/sha256/72ed15c9a65961ecd034cca098ec18eb99002cd402824aae8a674a8ae41bd0ef \
-o elasticsearch-chart.tar.gz
```
