Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-132) Mash up marvin into an interactive auto-completing API shell for CloudStack
Date Thu, 18 Oct 2012 04:06:02 GMT

Prasanna Santhanam commented on CLOUDSTACK-132:
-----------------------------------------------

Sebastien, While ipython is its own binary and does auto-complete as  a quick library reference
for a developer. It is not very handy to use for someone just playing with CloudStack. Think
of the ec2 API tools that are provided to users to  control their instances. This is something
that CLoudStack lacks right now.

> The marvin libraries contain the capability to convert marvin into an interactive shell
for CloudStack. Every cloud provider has an auto-completing shell and cloudstack lacks options
for this now. This should involve refactoring all the marvin libraries to allow for auto-completion
of APIs.
> Furthermore the ability to autocomplete the entities like templates, images, virtualmachines
need to exist as a part of such a shell to make it useful at cloudscale
