Juju Quickstart is a Juju plugin which allows for easily setting up a Juju environment in very few steps. The environment is bootstrapped and set up so that it can be managed using a Web interface (the Juju GUI).
Juju Quickstart is an opinionated command-line tool that quickly starts Juju and the GUI, whether you’ve never installed Juju or you have an existing Juju environment running.
Features include the following:
- New users are guided, as needed, to install Juju, set up SSH keys, and configure it for first use.
- Juju environments can be created and managed from a command line interactive session.
- The Juju GUI is automatically installed, adding no additional machines (installing on an existing state server when possible).
- Bundles can be deployed, from local files, HTTP(S) URLs, or the charm store, so that a complete topology of services can be set up in one simple command.
- Quickstart ends by opening the browser and automatically logging the user into the GUI, to observe and manage the environment visually.
- Users with a running Juju environment can run the quickstart command again to simply re-open the GUI without having to find the proper URL and password.
To start Juju Quickstart, run the following:
Run juju-quickstart -h for a list of all the available options.
Once Juju has been installed, the command can also be run as a juju plugin, without the hyphen (juju quickstart).
Juju Quickstart is available on Ubuntu releases 12.04 LTS (precise), 13.10 (saucy), and 14.04 LTS (trusty).
For installation on precise and saucy, you’ll need to enable the Juju PPA by first executing:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:juju/stable sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install juju-quickstart
For trusty the PPA is not required and you simply need to install it with:
sudo apt-get install juju-quickstart
Alternatively you may install Juju Quickstart via pip with:
pip install juju-quickstart
