RFE: 'rhc app create' should allow me to create an app directly from a quickstart URL
Last modified: 2015-05-14 21:59:37 EDT
When creating a new app on Openshift, using a quickstart is still a multistep process from the CLI. It involves creating the app, adding any additional cartridges that the app depends on, then merging the quickstart repo and deploying that merged repo up to OpenShift.
It would improve the user experience significantly if I could do the following in a single step:
$ rhc app create -a new-drupal-app --quickstart=git://github.com:openshift/drupal-example.git
The expected behavior would be for rhc to create the app, add any necessary cartridges, and then merge in the specified quickstart URL and push/deploy it to my new app.
I suspect the quickstart would need to define it's app type and cartridge dependencies in order to accomplish this.
Cool feature - but this looks like a user story rather than a bug.
We have templates which can be launched via the REST API comprised of a few of the quickstart applications. Enabling launching existing templates from the command line tools may be a good first step.
Opened a story to cover the UI aspects of this, we already have another story in the runtime backlog to track creating an app directly from a git repo that Fotios created.
