Subject [jira] [Commented] (LIBCLOUD-160) Command Line Interface (GSoC task)
Date Sun, 02 Mar 2014 19:52:31 GMT


sai krishna commented on LIBCLOUD-160:

	I have found this interesting text from Roman:
	"I think we can use Tomaz's suggestion as a starting point:
	libcloud <api> <resource> <action>"
	Basing on the above quote from Roman's mail and the python-raxcli's look and feel
		(raxcli) help registry
		Command "registry" matches:
		- registry services list
		- registry services get
	Can I expect the same output format?
	One more doubt:
	api here can be one of the supported compute, storage, dns, load-balancers
	what are the <resources> ?
	I have identified possible <actions> to be:
		list, get , set, remove,
	Please help me with <resource> and <action> so that I will frame the proposal
draft of the feature and post on Jira page for the same.

Following your earlier suggestions:
1. Getting familiar with the library
I followed this link and am able to successfully interact.

2. Getting familiar with the code base
I have Checked some already fixed bugs and I am currently working on Libcloud-230

3.To Start Drafting a proposal:
Working on the same and got the above doubts regarding the command framming.

Best Regards,
-- saikrishna.
