[openstack-dev] Re-using Horizon bits in OpenDaylight

I've also used the core Horizon bits for dashboards other than the OpenStack dashboard. I can't speak for any current bugs you may run into, but by-and-large the ability to create arbitrary dashboards, tables, workflows, etc. to interact with RESTful APIs works perfectly without the OpenStack bits. My goal has always been to keep a clean separation between the generic (horizon) and specific (openstack_dashboard) code.

I always encouraged people to file any problems they have using the horizon module for non-OpenStack purposes as bugs on the project. Someday the modules may actually be split into two separate packages, but for nw the design goal stands, at least.

All the best,

-          Gabriel

I have used the Horizon framework for an application other than the OpenStack Dashboard and it worked really well.  There is an effort to create a separation between the Horizon framework and the OpenStack Dashboard and once that happens it will be even easier.  How hard or difficult it is will depend on exactly what you're trying to do and how well its UI metaphor matches that of the OpenStack Dashboard.

Hello everyone.

I would like to know if anyone here has knowledge on how easy it is to use Horizon for something else then OpenStack things?

I'm the starter of the "dlux" project that aims to consume the OpenDaylight SDN controller Northbound REST APIs instead of the integrated UI it has now. Though the current PoC is done using AngularJS i came into issues like how we make it easy for third part things that are not core to plugin it's things into the app which I know that can be done using panels and alike in Horizon.

So the question boils down to, can I easily re-use Horizon for ODL?
