Cloud Foundry CLI Build Status

This is the official command line client for Cloud Foundry.

You can follow our development progress on Pivotal Tracker.

Getting Started

Download and run the installer for your platform from the Downloads Section.

Once installed, you can log in and push an app.

$ cd [my-app-directory]
$ cf api api.[my-cloudfoundry].com
Setting api endpoint to https://api.[my-cloudfoundry].com...
OK

$ cf login
API endpoint: https://api.[my-cloudfoundry].com

Email> [my-email]

Password> [my-password]
Authenticating...
OK

$ cf push

#Further Reading and Getting Help

  • You can find further documentation at the docs page for the CLI here.
  • There is also help available in the CLI itself; type cf help for more information.
  • Each command also has help output available via cf [command] --help or cf [command] -h.
  • For development guide on writing a cli plugin, see here.
  • Finally, if you are still stuck or have any questions or issues, feel free to open a GitHub issue.

Troubleshooting / FAQs

Known Issues

  • .cfignore used in cf push must be in UTF8 encoding for CLI to interpret correctly.

Linux

Filing Bugs

For simple bugs (eg: text formatting, help messages, etc), please provide
  • the command you ran
  • what occurred
  • what you expected to occur
For bugs related to HTTP requests or strange behavior, please run the command with env var CF_TRACE=true and provide
  • the command you ran
  • the trace output
  • a high-level description of the bug
For panics and other crashes, please provide
  • the command you ran
  • the stack trace generated (if any)
  • any other relevant information

Forking the repository for development

  1. Install Go
  2. Ensure your $GOPATH is set correctly
  3. Install godep
  4. Get the cli source code: go get github.com/cloudfoundry/cli
  • (Ignore any warnings about "no buildable Go source files")
  1. Run godep restore (note: this will modify the dependencies in your $GOPATH)
  2. Fork the repository
  3. Add your fork as a remote: cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/cloudfoundry/cli && git remote add your_name https://github.com/your_name/cli

Building

To prepare your build environment, run go get github.com/jteeuwen/go-bindata/...

  1. Run ./bin/build
  2. The binary will be built into the ./out directory.

Optionally, you can use bin/run to compile and run the executable in one step.

Developing

  1. Install Mercurial
  2. Run go get golang.org/x/tools/cmd/vet
  3. Write a Ginkgo test.
  4. Run bin/test and watch the test fail.
  5. Make the test pass.
  6. Submit a pull request to the master branch.

* For development guide on writing a cli plugin, see here

Contributing

Major new feature proposals are given as a publically viewable google document with commenting allowed and discussed on the vcap-dev mailing list.

Pull Requests

Pull Requests should be made against the master branch.

Architecture overview

A command is a struct that implements this interface:

type Command interface {
	MetaData() CommandMetadata
	SetDependency(deps Dependency, pluginCall bool) Command
	Requirements(requirementsFactory requirements.Factory, context flags.FlagContext) (reqs []requirements.Requirement, err error)
	Execute(context flags.FlagContext)
}

Source code

Metadata() is just a description of the command name, usage and flags:

type CommandMetadata struct {
	Name            string
	ShortName       string
	Usage           string
	Description     string
	Flags           map[string]flags.FlagSet
	SkipFlagParsing bool
	TotalArgs       int
}

Source code

Requirements() returns a list of requirements that need to be met before a command can be invoked.

Execute() is the method that your command implements to do whatever it's supposed to do. The context object provides flags and arguments.

When the command is run, it communicates with api using repositories (they are in cf/api).

SetDependency() is where a command obtains it's dependencies. Dependencies are typically declared as an interface type, and not a concrete type, so tests can inject a fake. The bool argument pluginCall indicates whether the command is invoked by one of the CLI's plugin API methods.

Dependencies are injected into each command, so tests can inject a fake. This means that dependencies are typically declared as an interface type, and not a concrete type. (see cf/command_registry/dependency.go)

Some dependencies are managed by a repository locator in cf/api/repository_locator.go.

Repositories communicate with the api endpoints through a Gateway (see cf/net).

Models are data structures related to Cloud Foundry (see cf/models). For example, some models are apps, buildpacks, domains, etc.

Managing dependencies

Command dependencies are managed by the command registry package. The app uses the package (in cf/command_registry/dependency.go)to instantiate them, this allows not sharing the knowledge of their dependencies with the app itself.

For commands that use another command as dependency, command_registry is used for retrieving the command dependency. For example, the command restart has a dependency on command start and stop, and this is how the command dependency is retrieved: restart.go

As for repositories, we use the repository locator to handle their dependencies. You can find it in cf/api/repository_locator.go.

Example command

Create Space is a good example of a command. Its tests include checking arguments, requiring the user to be logged in, and the actual behavior of the command itself. You can find it in cf/commands/space/create_space.go.

i18n

All pull requests which include user-facing strings should include updated translation files. These files are generated/ maintained using i18n4go.

To add/ update translation strings run the command i18n4go -c fixup. For each change or update, you will be presented with the choices new or upd. Type in the appropriate choice. If upd is chosen, you will be asked to confirm which string is being updated using a numbered list.

Current conventions

Creating Commands

Resources that include several commands have been broken out into their own sub-package using the Resource name. An example of this convention is the Space resource and package (see cf/commands/space)

In addition, command file and methods naming follows a CRUD like convention. For example, the Space resource includes commands such a CreateSpace, ListSpaces, DeleteSpace, etc.

Creating Repositories

Although not ideal, we use the name "Repository" for API related operations as opposed to "Service". Repository was chosen to avoid confusion with Service model objects (i.e. creating Services and Service Instances within Cloud Foundry).

By convention, Repository methods return a model object and an error. Models are used in both Commands and Repositories to model Cloud Foundry data. This convention provides a consistent method signature across repositories.
