An incomplete SoftLayer (SL) client API written in Go language.

Getting Started


The best way to get started would be to look at the integration tests for creating a virtual guest and the test helpers. Here is a snippet of what is needed.

//Add necessary imports, e.g., os, slclient, datatypes
// "os"
// slclient "github.com/maximilien/softlayer-go/client"
// datatypes "github.com/maximilien/softlayer-go/data_types"

//Access SoftLayer username and API key from environment variable or hardcode here
username := os.Getenv("SL_USERNAME")
apiKey := os.Getenv("SL_API_KEY")

//Create a softLayer-go client
client := slclient.NewSoftLayerClient(username, apiKey)

//Create a template for the virtual guest (changing properties as needed)
virtualGuestTemplate := datatypes.SoftLayer_Virtual_Guest_Template{
  Hostname:  "some-hostname",
    Domain:    "some-domain.com",
    StartCpus: 1,
    MaxMemory: 1024,
    Datacenter: datatypes.Datacenter{
        Name: "ams01",
    },
    SshKeys:                      []SshKey{},  //or get the necessary keys and add here
    HourlyBillingFlag:            true,
    LocalDiskFlag:                true,
    OperatingSystemReferenceCode: "UBUNTU_LATEST",
}

//Get the SoftLayer virtual guest service
virtualGuestService, err := client.GetSoftLayer_Virtual_Guest_Service()
if err != nil {
  return err
}

//Create the virtual guest with the service
virtualGuest, err := virtualGuestService.CreateObject(virtualGuestTemplate)
if err != nil {
    return err
}

//Use the virtualGuest or other services...

Cloning and Building


Clone this repo and build it. Using the following commands on a Linux or Mac OS X system:

$ mkdir -p softlayer-go/src/github.com/maximilien
$ export GOPATH=$(pwd)/softlayer-go:$GOPATH
$ cd softlayer-go/src/github.com/maximilien
$ git clone https://github.com/maximilien/softlayer-go.git
$ cd softlayer-go
$ export SL_USERNAME=your-username@your-org.com
$ export SL_API_KEY=your-softlayer-api-key
$ godep restore
$ ./bin/build
$ ./bin/test-unit
$ ./bin/test-integration

NOTE: you may need to install godep on your system, if you have not already. You can with this one line command: $ go get github.com/tools/godep

NOTE2: if you get any dependency errors, then use go get path/to/dependency to get it, e.g., go get github.com/onsi/ginkgo and go get github.com/onsi/gomega. You also need to do godep save ./... in order for any new or updated depencies to be reflected into the Godeps directory.

The executable output should now be located in: out/slgo. It does not do anything currently, expect printing a version number. In time this may change. For now, this project is intended to be a set of useful and reusable Golang libraries to access SoftLayer.

Running Tests


The SoftLayer (SL) Golang client and associated tests and binary distribution depend on you having a real SL account. Get one for free for one month here. From your SL account you can get an API key. Using your account name and API key you will need to set two environment variables: SL_USERNAME and SL_API_KEY. You can do so as follows:

$ export SL_USERNAME=your-username@your-org.com
$ export SL_API_KEY=your-softlayer-api-key

You should run the tests to make sure all is well, do this with: $ ./bin/test-unit and $ ./bin/test-integration in your cloned repository. Please note that the $ ./bin/test-integration will spin up real SoftLayer virtual guests (VMs) and associated resources and will also delete them. This integration test may take up to 30 minutes (usually shorter)

The output should of $ ./bin/test-unit be similar to:

➜  softlayer-go git:(master) bin/test-unit

Developing (*)


  1. Check for existing stories on our public Tracker
  2. Select an unstarted story and work on code for it
  3. If the story you want to work on is not there then open an issue and ask for a new story to be created
  4. Run go get golang.org/x/tools/cmd/vet
  5. Run go get github.com/xxx ... to install test dependencies (as you see errors)
  6. Write a Ginkgo test
  7. Run bin/test and watch the test fail
  8. Make the test pass
  9. Submit a pull request

Managing dependencies


Short godep Guide

  • If you ever import a new package foo/bar (after you go get foo/bar, so that foo/bar is in $GOPATH), you can type godep save ./... to add it to the Godeps directory.
  • To restore dependencies from the Godeps directory, simply use godep restore. restore is the opposite of save.
  • If you ever remove a dependency or a link becomes deprecated, the easiest way is probably to remove your entire Godeps directory and run godep save ./... again, after making sure all your dependencies are in your $GOPATH. Don't manually edit Godeps.json!
  • To update an existing dependency, you can use godep update foo/bar or godep update foo/... (where ... is a wildcard)
  • The godep project readme is a pretty good resource: https://github.com/tools/godep

Current conventions


  • Basic Go conventions
  • Strict TDD for any code added or changed
  • Go fakes when needing to mock objects

(*) these items are in the works, we will remove the * once they are available

NOTE: this client is created to support the bosh-softlayer-cpi project and only implements the portion of the SL APIs needed to complete the implementation of the BOSH CPI. You are welcome to use it in your own projects and as you do if you find areas we have not yet implemented but that you need, please submit Pull Requests or engage with us in discussions.
