[comment]: # Harvester does not officially come with a CLI tool, the user is supposed to interact with Harvester mostly through the UI [comment]: # Though it is theoretically possible to use kubectl to interact with Harvester, the manipulation of Kubevirt YAML objects is absolutely not user friendly. [comment]: # Inspired by tools like multipass from Canonical to easily and rapidly create one of multiple VMs, I began the development of Harvester CLI. Currently, it works but Harvester CLI needs some love to be up-to-date with Harvester v1.0.2 and needs some bug fixes and improvements as well.

Project Description

Harvester CLI is a command line interface tool written in Go, designed to simplify interfacing with a Harvester cluster as a user. It is especially useful for testing purposes as you can easily and rapidly create VMs in Harvester by providing a simple command such as: harvester vm create my-vm --count 5 to create 5 VMs named my-vm-01 to my-vm-05.

asciicast

Harvester CLI is functional but needs a number of improvements: up-to-date functionality with Harvester v1.0.2 (some minor issues right now), modifying the default behaviour to create an opensuse VM instead of an ubuntu VM, solve some bugs, etc.

Github Repo for Harvester CLI: https://github.com/belgaied2/harvester-cli

Goal for this Hackweek

The goal for this Hackweek is to bring Harvester CLI up-to-speed with latest Harvester version, and improve the code quality as well as implement some simple features and bug fixes. Some nice additions might be:

  • Create a Github actions pipeline to automatically integrate Harvester CLI to Homebrew repositories
  • Automatically package Harvester CLI for OpenSUSE / Redhat RPMs or DEBs
  • Implement some automated tests in Go
  • Improve the overall code quality
  • Test the program and create issues for it

Issue list is here: https://github.com/belgaied2/harvester-cli/issues

Resources

The project is written in Go, and using client-go the Kubernetes Go Client libraries to communicate with the Harvester API (which is Kubernetes in fact). Welcome contributions are:

  • Testing it and creating issues
  • Homebrew build scripts
  • RPM packaging
  • Documentation
  • Go code improvement

What you might learn

Harvester CLI might be interesting to you if you want to learn more about:

  • GitHub Actions
  • Harvester as a SUSE Product
  • Go programming language
  • Kubernetes API
  • Kubevirt API objects (Manipulating VMs and VM Configuration in Kubernetes using Kubevirt)
