A Django interface for OpenStack.

Project description

OpenStack Django-Nova

The Django-Nova project is a Django module that is used to provide web based
interactions with the OpenStack Nova cloud controller.

There is a reference implementation that uses this module located at:

It is highly recommended that you make use of this reference implementation
so that changes you make can be visualized effectively and are consistent.
Using this reference implementation as a development environment will greatly
simplify development of the django-nova module.

Of course, if you are developing your own Django site using django-nova, then
you can disregard this advice.

Getting Started

Django-Nova uses Buildout ( to manage local
development. To configure your local Buildout environment first install the following
system-level dependencies:
* python-dev
* git
* bzr

Then instantiate buildout with

$ python
$ bin/buildout

This will install all the dependencies of django-nova and provide some useful
scripts in the bin/ directory:

bin/python provides a python shell for the current buildout.
bin/django provides django functions for the current buildout.

You should now be able to run unit tests as follows:

$ bin/django test
$ bin/test

You can run unit tests with code coverage on django_openstack by setting

$ NOSE_WITH_COVERAGE=true bin/test

Get even better coverage info by running coverage directly:

$ coverage run --branch --source django_openstack bin/django test django_openstack && coverage html
