Horizon is a great UI for managing OpenStack applications, but you can also build integration into non-OpenStack components, providing your users with a single UI for multiple applications. In this talk we ll talk through the lessons learned building the HP Helion Development Platform CloudFoundry UI, and share code for a simple panel that manages a popular open source application.
Some topics we ll cover include development environment setup, authentication, using the OpenStack Dashboard code to orchestrate applications, packaging and distributing your Horizon module, utilizing existing OpenStack features as communications channels, and best practices for creating more complex UI interactions in Horizon. After attending this panel attendees will have a solid grasp of building Horizon add ons, and sample code to jumpstart building their own apps!
