Orchestrates AWS cloud resources using boto and pychef
WARNING! This plugin is in alpha.
I recommend you not use this plugin yet on production instances. Although you likely won't lose ec2 instances or chef data, it's still quite immature. It would be best to try out on dev instances to help test the plugin and generate ideas for new features.
- robguttman, 2011 Jan 28
This plugin is meant to fill the coordination gap between AWS and Chef, especially:
- Launch an ec2 instance and apply one or more chef roles
- Terminate ec2 instances and delete its chef node
There are additional features and quite possibly more to come, but my intention is to keep the scope down to what's needed to orchestrate between AWS and Chef (and not re-implement either the AWS Management Console or the Chef Server webui).
- Install the plugin (after downloading and unzipping):
cd cloudplugin/0.12 sudo python setup.py bdist_egg sudo cp dist/TracCloud*.egg /your/trac/location/plugins/
See TracPlugins for more installation details and options. You'll likely need to restart Trac's web server after installation.
- Enable the plugin in trac.ini:
[components] cloud.* = enabled
You can alternatively use the Trac Web Admin GUI to enable any or all rules.
- Configure the main trac.ini section:
[cloud] label = Cloud aws_key = xxxxxxxxxxxxx aws_secret = xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx aws_keypair = xxxxxxxxxxxx chef_instancedata_file = /path/to/instance-data.json chef_base_path = /home/me boto_field_node_name = id default_droplet = instance
See the examples section below for how to specify rules.
