A few updates from the teams:

Thor

Thor is moving along with implementation of services starting yesterday (Monday). You can view our live Huboard Kanban to see what is currently being worked on. The interface in the last few weeks has gotten a faster, cleaner appearance and stabilized even more around deploying and maintaining your Cloud Foundry based environments.

Latest Alpha Release Features & Additions for the Thor Cloud Foundry UI

Hello Thor Users. We're still in alpha with Thor, but I wanted to share some of the latest progress that has been made over the last few weeks. Here's a run down point by point of the latest pull request #109:

  • Button, styles, and related materials are in line with OS-X standards for the workflow screen of deploying an application.
  • Deployments for node.js, erlang, java, .NET and the other supported applications now works.
  • More unit tests added around new key features, especially detection of the language/framework support.
  • Easier to navigate workflow wizard for deployment with appropriate drop out points, etc.
As for the next steps, our list of stories is listed on Github. Get involved and we'll have them knocked out even faster. We'd also love any input on features that are available now or in the future or any code reviews, architecture suggestions, or similar. Just join the discussion group and let's talk. Here's a list of some of the key feature stories coming in our next push:
  • Thor User wants to be able to add a service to the available services.
  • Thor User wants to view a list of services available for use.
  • Thor user wants to be able to view multiple bound services for an application.
  • Thor User wants to be able to bind a service to an application.
  • Thor user wants to see various X parameters for their running services.
  • Thor user wants to be able to view available services for their application(s).

Alpha For Thor - Download, Try, Get Involved

Today we're releasing the alpha Thor Applications with installers for Mac OS-X and a partial Windows 7 release. We wanted to get minimally viable products out the door as soon as possible so people could check out our progress and work we've accomplished for the Thor User Interfaces with Cloud Foundry and Iron Foundry Environments! So here they are. Here's a few screen shots to how we're doing...

We'll be iterating on the code base regularly still, so if you know github well I'd suggest going to clone the code itself and running it. The installers are still however a working option to check it out.

Getting Involved

What's Being Worked On? The workflow we're using for Thor & Thor .NET is viewable via the issues section on Github and also for a good kanban visualization we're using Huboard. For each of the projects we've started or are starting a Hubaord Kanban. Getting the Code To clone/fork/download the latest code to work with, contribute, and send pull requests with follow these steps.
  1. Navigate to the main source and fork the code.
  2. Once you've forked the code, navigate to your repository and clone to your local development machine.
git clone [email protected]:YourGithubAccount/Thor.git
  1. Once the clone is complete, for the OS-X version you'll need to pull the submodules with the following command. For the Windows 7 version just do a clone and build.
git submodule update --init --recursive Your local repository should have executable code now. Open the project with XCode or Visual Studio 2010, depending on which project you're checking out and see if everything works. If it doesn't, please post a comment to our discussion list or message us via Twitter on @ironfoundryorg. Working on the Code Once you've added the feature, or completed one of the stories or items in the Thor issues list or Thor .NET issues list leave a comment on the issue and submit a pull request (or just submit the pull request). We'll then merge it back in, or if there are conflicts we'll work with you to merge it back in and add the code to master.
