Language Server Protocol implementation for Salt States

a project by cbosdonnat

Language Server Protocol (LSP for friends) is used in a number of code editors these days. There are implementations for various languages, but none for Salt States. The idea is to leverage Salt state module to parse edited files to provide completion of the state ids or paths.

Suse Manager - SPA

a project by LuNeves

The experience while navigating throughout the UI of Suse Manager it's not that nice. Whenever we navigate to a new page, the whole page gets refreshed and recreated, even when half of it didn't change a thing, for instance, the menu, topbar, and the notifications WebSocket connection, which in my opinion doesn't provide a smooth experience. This project has the goal to test out an automatic way to transform the Suse Manager UI into a Single Page Application.

Bridle - Terraform remote backend in Kubernetes

a project by nroberts

Project Description

Terraform's remote backend requires a Terraform Cloud account and has an initial limited offering. While the initial offering is suitable for small resource management and teams this quickly becomes an issue as usage demands increase. In addition Terraform's remote operations (plan,apply, etc) are executed on HashiCorp's cloud resources which present issues for sensitive data such as passwords and access keys. Users are also constrained to as what tooling is available on the remote execution environment for example having kubectl as part of a local-resource. This project aims to address these shortcomings in a native Kubernetes implementation.

openQA IDE

a project by coolo

There is a running gag built into openQA called interactive mode. It goes like this: "if you need the interactive mode, it's broken". The reason: the so called interactive mode is a collection of hacks - in theory making it possible to update needles in a running test. But in fact it's a UI desaster that almost never works. So the goal of this hackweek project is to get rid of it - and instead build a real control from the webui into the backend allowing tests to be written on the fly including needle creation/updates. Easy as that.

Learn Crystal by porting part of YaST to that language

an invention by ancorgs

For a very long time, I have been planning to play with Crystal as possible substitute/complement for Ruby. With that goal, I have isolated a very small subset of the Ruby project I know the best (yast-storage-ng) and I want to migrate that subset to Crystal to get a general feeling about the language. See the repository with the experiment already in progress. There is no evil plan to migrate YaST to Crystal. This is just done in the Hack Week spirit of "what if". But if more people join maybe we could get this to an state in which some benchmarks can be executed to check what's the real gain in speed and memory consumption using Crystal instead of Ruby (note: speed and memory are not the only goals of the migration).

HelenOS: <filesystem> of a down

a project by jjindrak

During the previous Hackweek [0], I have successfully implemented, tested and merged [1] an implementation of the entire C++ standard header <future>. This time, my aim is to modernize the C++14-esque standard library [2] of HelenOS [3][4] with a C++17 feature - the <filesystem> header. The <filesystem> header is much larger than the <future> header which I barely managed to implement and test in the allocated time for the previous Hackweek, but <future> was mostly OS-independent as it relied only on previously implemented features of the standard library. The <filesystem> header, however, is limited by the filesystem API of the OS and as such implementing of the entirety of it might not be possible, limiting the scope of the project (which is a good thing due to the time constraints). The primary features of the header [5] that should be implemented:

Video presence system for distributed teams

a project by ancorgs

Those working remotely or managing a distributed team know it: face time is invaluable. The former openSUSE team has been using http://sqwiggle.com to keep in touch and Google hangout to hold a stand up meeting every morning. We like the Sqwiggle approach. Although the last updates have made it worse, the concept of having a peep to your colleagues' desks to know if they are there (even if they are working hard or just talking to someone) and the possibility of starting a video conversation just clicking on the face shot can do a lot in reducing distances (and in killing the temptation of working naked for home-officers).

virtio-serial in OpenStack

a project by e_bischoff

Currently, the usual way to communicate with VM instances in the cloud from outside is ssh. This is okay for most uses, but a) does not work when you mess up with the guest's ability to network and b) requires a free floating IP. I wonder if, for qemu/kvm instances, it would be possible to use virtio-serial possibilities : from the guest, it is seen as a serial port, and from the outside, it is seen as a UNIX socket, or as something else. It is fast, as it does not go through virtualization and device drivers.

Uyuni/SUSE Manager: build Python APE and a Salt+Python bundle to support ANY client operating system

Uyuni/SUSE Manager build client tools for each of the supported operating systems: SLES 11, SLES 12, SLES 15, RHEL 6, RHEL 7, RHEL 8, Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 18.04, Ubuntu 20.04, Debian 9, Debian 10... the list is long. This is required because each operating system has different base libraries (glibc, OpenSSL, Python version, etc). A few months ago, the SUSE Manager development team started a (yet unfinished) research task to try to build Salt and all the required dependencies (minus glibc and OpenSSL, because it would break FIPS certification) so that we can always ship the latest version of Salt on each client operating system:

With the teres-1 [1] laptop we have a first arm64 device we could use as end-users. Much work to run mainline kernel + u-boot was done already. But power consumption of the laptop is not optimal (~2 hours of battery life time). The idea is to support cpufreq for the A64 SoC upstream, which would enable the teres-1, pine64 and pinebook to run more power efficient. up to now it seems nobody is working on the driver [2].
