Project Atomic is pleased to announce the release of the Atomic Developer Bundle (ADB) 1.7.1, a Vagrant box that provides a ready-to-use development environment for container based applications. With the ADB, developers can dive right into producing complex, multi-container applications. The ADB is available for Microsoft Windows, Apple OS X, and Linux distributions.

The 1.7.1 release is primarily a bug fix and enhancement release.

  • The OpenShift experience in ADB has been enhanced to be more streamlined and to make version selection easier.

  • sccli openshift will download OpenShift images and setup a single-node OpenShift instance. Documentation is available online.

  • sccli defaults to OpenShift Origin version 1.1.1. This can be changed using environment variables as seen below. For details, please see the Documentation.

# Use the latest version of OpenShift Origin

The ADB provides a container development ecosystem that ensures developers are able to work with Linux containers even if their base operating system does not support it. It also offers 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 supports Nulecule and Atomic App. These projects provide a structure for packaging, distributing, and deploying multi-container applications.

The ADB is built as part of Project Atomic, which integrates the tools and patterns of container-based application and service deployment with trusted operating system platforms to deliver an end-to-end hosting architecture that’s modern, reliable, and secure.
