Project Atomic is pleased to announce the release of the Atomic Developer Bundle (ADB) 1.5, a Vagrant box that provides a ready-to-use development environment for container applications. With ADB, developers can dive right into producing complex, multi-container applications.

The 1.5 release adds the ability to develop and test using OpenShift Origin v3. The ADB is useful on Microsoft Windows, Apple’s OS X and GNU/Linux distributions. The ADB provides a container development ecosystem that ensures that developers are able to work with Linux containers even if their base operating system does not support it.

The ADB provides a quick and easy way to setup multi-container applications that take advantage of management and/or orchestration solutions, such as OpenShift or Kubernetes. The ADB also supports Nulecule and Atomic App. These projects provide a structure for packaging, distributing, and deploying multi-container applications.

Notable features of ADB v1.5 include:

  • Docker, Kubernetes and other ecosystem packages are shipped and configured in the Vagrant box.
  • The Vagrant box has device mapper thin provisioning storage setup for docker images, similarly to production instances of RHEL/CentOS/Fedora Atomic Hosts.
  • Setup OpenShift just with the the vagrant up command and a shipped Vagrantfile.
  • Setup single node kubernetes with the vagrant up command and a shipped Vagrantfile.
  • Users can directly run Docker commands on hosts, such as Windows and OS X, that do not directly support Docker. Read More
  • The ADB is able to integrate with Eclipse docker tooling. Read More
