Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-132) Mash up marvin into an interactive auto-completing API shell for CloudStack
Date Thu, 25 Oct 2012 12:37:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLOUDSTACK-132?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13484073#comment-13484073

Rohit Yadav commented on CLOUDSTACK-132:
----------------------------------------

Some ideas; We can embed and reuse bpython; if we want to further simplify the dependencies,
we can just use readlines and cmd.
The client will have two ways to executing commands;
1. <client> <arg> which executes the command on a shell
2. <client> <no args> will start a shell where one can run multiple commands and
stitch them with loops and controls, for example this is useful if I want to stop all the
VMs or start 100 VMs etc.

> 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
