Deprecated - A client implementation for Rackspace Openstack in node.js


A client implementation for the Rackspace Openstack API (v2)

All functionality in this package is either implemented in pkgcloud or is in the process of being migrated to pkgcloud. Please only use this package for prototyping at this point as the next published version will remove functionality entirely.

The rackspace-openstack module is compliant with the Rackspace Openstack API. rackspace-openstack is a nearly feature complete wrapper for the Rackspace Openstack APIs and should work in most scenarios.

Currently, the following feature areas are supported:

  • Open Stack CloudServers
  • CloudDNS
  • CloudLoadBalancers

Creating and authenticating your client against the Rackspace API is simple:

var rackspace = require('rackspace-openstack'),
    config = {
        auth : {
            username: 'your-username',
            apiKey: 'your-api-key'
var client = rackspace.createClient(config);
client.authorize(function(err) {
    if (err) {
    // Do stuff here
    image: '5cebb13a-f783-4f8c-8058-c4182c724ccd',
    flavor: 2,
    name: 'My Server'
}, function(err, server) {
    // Do stuff with your new server
var myDomainId = 1234567;
client.getDomain(myDomainId, function(err, domain) {
            name: 'foo.' +,
            type: 'A',
            data: ''
    ], function(err, records) {
        // use your new records here
    name: 'My Load Balancer',
    nodes: [ {
        address: '',
        port: '80',
        condition: rackspace.NodeConditions.ENABLED
    } ],
    protocol: rackspace.Protocols.HTTP,
    virtualIps: [{
        type: rackspace.VirtualIpTypes.PUBLIC
}, function(err, loadBalancer) {
    // Use your new Load Balancer here
client.getServer(serverId, function(err, server) {
        display_name: 'my new volume ' + serverId,
        size: 100,
        volume_type: rackspace.VolumeType.SATA
    }, function(err, volume) {
            device: '/dev/xvdb'
        }, function(err, result) {
            // Use your Volume Here

All rackspace-openstack tests are available by running make test
