Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies skyline-apiserver-1.0.0.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).

Skyline API Server

English | 简体中文

Skyline is an OpenStack dashboard optimized by UI and UE, support OpenStack Train+. It has a modern technology stack and ecology, is easier for developers to maintain and operate by users, and has higher concurrency performance.

Skyline's mascot is the nine-color deer. The nine-color deer comes from Dunhuang mural “the nine-color king deer”, whose moral is Buddhist cause-effect and gratefulness, which is consistent with 99cloud's philosophy of embracing and feedback community since its inception. We also hope Skyline can keep light, elegant and powerful as the nine-color deer, to provide a better dashboard for the openstack community and users.


Table of contents


Quick Start


  • An OpenStack environment that runs at least core components and can access OpenStack components through Keystone endpoints
  • A Linux server with container engine (docker or podman) installed


  1. Edit the /etc/skyline/skyline.yaml file in linux server

    You can refer to the sample file, and modify the following parameters according to the actual environment

    • database_url
    • keystone_url
    • default_region
    • interface_type
    • system_project_domain
    • system_project
    • system_user_domain
    • system_user_name
    • system_user_password

Deployment with Sqlite

  1. Run the skyline_bootstrap container to bootstrap

    rm -rf /tmp/skyline && mkdir /tmp/skyline
    docker run -d --name skyline_bootstrap -e KOLLA_BOOTSTRAP="" -v /etc/skyline/skyline.yaml:/etc/skyline/skyline.yaml -v /tmp/skyline:/tmp --net=host 99cloud/skyline:latest
    # Check bootstrap is normal `exit 0`
    docker logs skyline_bootstrap
  2. Run the skyline service after bootstrap is complete

    docker rm -f skyline_bootstrap

    If you need to modify skyline port, add -e LISTEN_ADDRESS=<ip:port> in the following command

    LISTEN_ADDRESS defaults to

    docker run -d --name skyline --restart=always -v /etc/skyline/skyline.yaml:/etc/skyline/skyline.yaml -v /tmp/skyline:/tmp --net=host 99cloud/skyline:latest

Deployment with MariaDB

Test Access

You can now access the dashboard: https://<ip_address>:9999

Develop Skyline-apiserver

Support Linux & Mac OS (Recommend Linux OS) (Because uvloop & cython)

Dependent tools

Use the new feature Context Variables of python37 & uvloop(0.15.0+ requires python37). Considering that most systems do not support python37, we choose to support python38 at least.

  • make >= 3.82
  • python >= 3.8
  • node >= 10.22.0 (Optional if you only develop with apiserver)
  • yarn >= 1.22.4 (Optional if you only develop with apiserver)

Install & Run

  1. Installing dependency packages

    tox -e venv
  2. Set skyline.yaml config file

    cp etc/skyline.yaml.sample etc/skyline.yaml
    export OS_CONFIG_DIR=$(pwd)/etc

    Maybe you should change the params with your real environment as followed:

    - database_url
    - keystone_url
    - default_region
    - interface_type
    - system_project_domain
    - system_project
    - system_user_domain
    - system_user_name
    - system_user_password

    If you set such as sqlite:////tmp/skyline.db for database_url , just do as followed. If you set such as mysql://root:root@localhost:3306/skyline for database_url , you should refer to steps 1 and 2 of the chapter Deployment with MariaDB at first.

  3. Init skyline database

    source .tox/venv/bin/activate
    make db_sync
  4. Run skyline-apiserver

    $ source .tox/venv/bin/activate
    $ uvicorn --reload --reload-dir skyline_apiserver --port 28000 --log-level debug skyline_apiserver.main:app
    INFO:     Uvicorn running on (Press CTRL+C to quit)
    INFO:     Started reloader process [154033] using statreload
    INFO:     Started server process [154037]
    INFO:     Waiting for application startup.
    INFO:     Application startup complete.

    You can now access the online API documentation:

    Or, you can launch debugger with .vscode/lauch.json with vscode.
