Bahub API client

Bahub is an automation tool for uploading and restoring backups. Works in shell, can work as a docker container in the same network with scheduled automatic backups of other containers, or can work as an UNIX daemon on the server without containerization.

Setup

Bahub can be running as a separate container attached to docker containers network or manually as a regular process. The recommended way is to use a docker container, which provides a working job scheduling, installed dependencies and a warranty that it will work.

Using docker container

There exists a repository quay.io/riotkit/bahub, for testing purposes you can pick “latest-build” tag, for production it is recommended to pick a fixed version. Example installation on the simplest construction - docker-compose is placed in “examples/client” directory in the repository.

Running a demo

We prepared a demo environment that has a Bahub client, a Redis container and the File Repository server in one network. It’s recommended to have client and server separated on different servers.

Take a look around, and create your own docker-compose, kubernetes or plain docker setup basing on our demo configuration.

git clone https://github.com/riotkit-org/file-repository
cd file-repository/examples/client
make start
make sh

Without docker

Use Python’s PIP to install the package, and run it.

pip install bahub
bahub --help
