OpenShift: Create an Instance Based on an Existing Project

Are you joining the containers revolution? Start leveraging container management using Platform9's ultimate guide to Kubernetes deployment.

The latest release of the OpenShift Origin project command line tooling gives us a powerful feature to shorten the steps it takes to setup, for example, the various projects demoed in my OpenShift Primer book. 

Below you will find a single example to demonstrate how much easier it is now to setup existing demo projects. You can update your install on osX with:

$ sudo gem update rhc
If you have not yet installed the client tooling, you can do that as follows on osX:

$ sudo gem install rhc

We used to need various steps to setup a project, like this mobile JBoss project DevDayUK:

Running on OpenShift

Create an account at  http://openshift.redhat.com/
Create a jbosseap-6.0 application
rhc app create -a devdayuk -t jbosseap-6.0
Add this upstream cloudtour repo
cd devdayuk
git remote add upstream -m master git://github.com/eschabell/openshift-devdayuk.git
git pull -s recursive -X theirs upstream master
Then push the repo upstream
git push
That's it, you can now checkout your application at:
http://devdayuk-$namespace.rhcloud.com

We can now shorten this list of tasks dramatically as follows:

Running on OpenShift

Create an account at  http://openshift.redhat.com/
Create a jbosseap-6.0 application
rhc app create -a devdayuk -t jbosseap-6.0 --from-code git://github.com/eschabell/openshift-devdayuk.git
That's it, you can now checkout your application at:
http://devdayuk-$namespace.rhcloud.com
I will be updating all my README.md files for all my projects over the coming days to reflect this improvement.
