    Openshift Client

    Node.js based client for the Openshift REST API, not unlike the Fabric8 Maven Plugin, but for node clients/builds.

    Basic Usage

    npm install --save openshift-rest-client

    Code:

    const openshiftRestClient = require('openshift-rest-client').OpenshiftClient;
    
    openshiftRestClient().then((client) => {
      // Use the client object to find a list of projects, for example
      client.apis['project.openshift.io'].v1.projects.get().then((response) => {
        console.log(response.body);
      });
    });
    

    The openshift-rest-client translates Path Item Objects [[1]] (e.g., /apis/project.openshift.io/v1/projects) to object chains ending in HTTP methods (e.g., apis['project.openshift.io'].v1.projects.get).

    So, to fetch all Projects:

    const projects = await client.apis['project.openshift.io'].v1.projects.get()

    If needed, Query Parameters can be used:

    const projects = await client.apis['project.openshift.io'].v1.projects.get({qs: {labelSelector: 'someOpenShiftLabel'}})

    The openshift-rest-client translates Path Templating [[2]] (e.g., /apis/build.openshift.io/v1/namespaces/$NAMESPACE/buildconfigs) to function calls (e.g., apis['build.openshift.io'].v1.namespaces('default').buildconfigs).

    So, to create a new Build Config in the default Namespace:

    const buildConfig = require('./build-config.json')
    const create = await client.apis['build.openshift.io'].v1.namespaces('default').buildconfigs.post({ body: buildConfig })

    and then fetch your newly created Build Config:

    const deployment = await client.apis['build.openshift.io'].v1.namespaces('default').buildconfigs(buildConfig.metadata.name).get()

    and finally, remove the Build Config:

    await client.apis['build.openshift.io'].v1.namespaces('default').buildconfigs(buildConfig.metadata.name).delete()

    The openshift-rest-client supports .delete, .get, .patch, .post, and .put.

    There are also aliases defined, so instead of writing client.apis['build.openshift.io'], you can just use client.apis.build for example. The list of aliases can be seen here: https://github.com/nodeshift/openshift-rest-client/blob/HEAD/lib/openshift-rest-client.js

    Advanced Usage

    By default, the openshift-rest-client will use the kubernetes-client module to get your configuration.

    The openshift-rest-client exposes the config module from the kubernetes client for ease of use.

    For example, if you want to provide a different path to your configuration, you can do something like this:

    const openshiftRestClient = require('openshift-rest-client').OpenshiftClient;
    
    const config = '~/some/path/config';
    
    openshiftRestClient({ config }).then((client) => {
      // Use the client object to find a list of projects, for example
      client.apis['project.openshift.io'].v1.project.get().then((response) => {
        console.log(response.body);
      });
    });
    

    You can also pass a plain object or a KubeConfig object.

    An example of a plain object:

        const openshiftRestClient = require('openshift-rest-client').OpenshiftClient;
        const k8Config = require('openshift-rest-client').config;
    
        const config = {
          apiVersion: 'v1',
          kind: 'Config',
          clusters: [
              {
                name: 'cluster',
                cluster: {
                  skipTLSVerify: true,
                  server: 'server-time'
                }
              }
            ],
            users: [{ name: 'user', token: '123456' }],
            contexts: [
              {
                context: {
                  user: 'user',
                  cluster: 'cluster'
                },
                name: 'context'
              }
            ],
            'current-context': 'context'
          };
    
        openshiftRestClient({config}).then((client) => {
          console.log(client);
        });
    

    An example of a KubeConfig object:

        const openshiftRestClient = require('openshift-rest-client').OpenshiftClient;
        const k8Config = require('openshift-rest-client').config;
    
        const config = {
          apiVersion: 'v1',
          kind: 'Config',
          clusters: [
              {
                name: 'cluster',
                cluster: {
                  skipTLSVerify: true,
                  server: 'server-time'
                }
              }
            ],
            users: [{ name: 'user', token: '123456' }],
            contexts: [
              {
                context: {
                  user: 'user',
                  cluster: 'cluster'
                },
                name: 'context'
              }
            ],
            'current-context': 'context'
          };
    
          k8Config.loadFromString(JSON.stringify(config));
    
    
          openshiftRestClient({config: k8Config}).then((client) => {
            console.log(client);
          });
    

    If you want to use a username/password combo to authenticate to Openshift, you might do something like this:

    const openshiftRestClient = require('openshift-rest-client').OpenshiftClient;
    
    
    (async function () {
      const settings = {
      };
    
      settings.config = {
        url: process.env.CLUSTER_URL,
        auth: {
          username: process.env.ADMIN_USERNAME,
          password: process.env.ADMIN_PASSWORD
        },
        insecureSkipTlsVerify: true
      };
    
      const client = await openshiftRestClient(settings);
    
      const projects = await client.apis['build.openshift.io'].v1.ns('myproject').builds.get();
      console.log(projects);
    })();
    

    It is also possible to send in a valid auth token instead of a username/password. If we use the above example, the settings object might look something like this:

    const settings = {
      };
    
    settings.config = {
      url: process.env.CLUSTER_URL,
      auth: {
        token: process.env.TOKEN
      },
      insecureSkipTlsVerify: true
    };

    Load API from a Remote Cluster

    By default, the openshift-rest-client, will load a swagger spec file that is included with the module. This has all the basic API's that come with Openshift and Kubernetes. If you are using operators to extend your cluster, the openshift-rest-client, by default, won't know about them.

    To fix this, you can tell the openshift-rest-client to load the spec file from your remote cluster using the loadSpecFromCluster option. Setting this to true, will try to load the spec file from your clusters /openapi/v2 endpoint. If that doesn't exist, it will also try, /swagger.json

    If the remote spec cannot be loaded, a warning will be output to the console and the default spec will be loaded.

    In a future version of this client, this might become the default.

    Changes in 2.0

    The client has been totally rewritten for the 2.0 release. This includes a new, more fluent, API.

    The old API will live in the 1.x branch.
