Integrate with third party app

Asked by Lisa B on 2013-02-26

I am very new to OpenStack. I am trying to figure out how to integrate a third party application with the horizon dashboard.

I am not able to find any specific documentation on what exactly is required and the steps needed.

Does the third party component need to be written in python?

Any details or links to helpful documentation would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

LB

Hi Lisa,

You can start by reading those tutorials to help you create a custom Horizon dashboard:

http://docs.openstack.org/developer/horizon/quickstart.html
http://docs.openstack.org/developer/horizon/topics/tutorial.html

Horizon dashboards work as Django applications, so they should be written in Python. You could also get away with writing a minimum of Python and e.g. loading a Javascript app into your page.

Thanks Julie Pichon, that solved my question.

Hi Julie, Lisa,

I am also facing the same problem. I have to integrate a ruby based application with horizon. I got the procedure to integrate python based application with horizon. But I did not understand how to integrate horizon with ruby based application. Could you please help me in getting the procedure.

Thanks,
