    Installing

    $ npm install --save node-lxd

    Getting Started

    The following example connects to the local LXC instance and launches a new container.

    var lxd = require("node-lxd");
     
    var client = lxd();
     
    client.create("myContainer", "ubuntu", function(err, container) {
        container.start(function(err) {
            if (!err)
                console.log("Started " + container.name());
        });
    });

    Example

    The following example uses an express application to allow users to create containers and execute commands.

    // requires
    var express = require("express");
    var lxd = require("node-lxd");
    var client = lxd();
    var app = express();
     
    var containers = {};
     
    app.post("/create", function(req, res) {
        client.launch(req.query.name, function(err, container) {
            if (err) res.json({success: false, message: err.getMessage()});
            else {
                containers[req.query.name] = container;
                res.json({success: true, message: "Container launched"});
            }
        });
    });
     
    app.post("/run", function(req, res) {
        if (!containers.hasOwnProperty(req.query.name)) {
            res.json({success: false, message: "Container does not exist"});
            return;
        }
     
        containers[req.query.name].run(req.query.cmd.split(" "), function(err, stdOut, stdErr) {
            if (err) res.json({success: false, message: err.getMessage()});
            else if (stdErr.length > 0) res.json({success: false, message: stdErr});
            else {
                res.json({success: true, message: stdOut});
            }
        });
    });
     
    app.listen(3000, function(err) {
        if (!err)
            console.log("listening on port 3000");
    });
