Developer Quick-Start

This is a quick walkthrough to get you started developing code for Zun. This assumes you are already familiar with submitting code reviews to an OpenStack project.

Exercising the Services Using Devstack

This session has been tested on Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial) only.

Clone devstack:

# Create a root directory for devstack if needed
$ sudo mkdir -p /opt/stack
$ sudo chown $USER /opt/stack
$ git clone /opt/stack/devstack

We will run devstack with minimal local.conf settings required to enable required OpenStack services:

$ HOST_IP=<your ip>
$ git clone /opt/stack/zun
$ cat /opt/stack/zun/devstack/local.conf.sample \
    | sed "s/HOST_IP=.*/HOST_IP=$HOST_IP/" \
    > /opt/stack/devstack/local.conf

More devstack configuration information can be found at Devstack Configuration

More neutron configuration information can be found at Devstack Neutron Configuration

Run devstack:

$ cd /opt/stack/devstack
$ ./


If the developer have a previous devstack environment and they want to re-stack the environment, they need to uninstall the pip packages before restacking:

$ ./
$ ./
$ pip freeze | grep -v '^\-e' | xargs sudo pip uninstall -y
$ ./

Prepare your session to be able to use the various openstack clients including nova, neutron, and glance. Create a new shell, and source the devstack openrc script:

$ source /opt/stack/devstack/openrc admin admin

Using the service

We will create and run a container that pings the address four times:

$ zun run --name test cirros ping -c 4

Above command will use the Docker image cirros from DockerHub which is a public image repository. Alternatively, you can use Docker image from Glance which serves as a private image repository:

$ docker pull cirros
$ docker save cirros | openstack image create cirros --public --container-format docker --disk-format raw
$ zun run --image-driver glance cirros ping -c 4

You should see a similar output to:

$ zun list
  | uuid                                 | name | image  | status  | task_state | addresses  | ports |
  | 46dd001b-7474-412c-a0f4-7adc047aaedf | test | cirros | Stopped | None       | | []    |

$ zun logs test
  PING ( 56 data bytes
  64 bytes from seq=0 ttl=40 time=25.513 ms
  64 bytes from seq=1 ttl=40 time=25.348 ms
  64 bytes from seq=2 ttl=40 time=25.226 ms
  64 bytes from seq=3 ttl=40 time=25.275 ms

  --- ping statistics ---
  4 packets transmitted, 4 packets received, 0% packet loss
  round-trip min/avg/max = 25.226/25.340/25.513 ms

Delete the container:

$ zun delete test
