There are two ways to access Google Cloud Storage. The old S3 API and the new JSON API.
Fog::Storage::Google will automatically direct you to the appropriate API based on the credentials you provide it.
- The XML API is almost identical to S3. Use Google's interoperability keys to access it.
- The new JSON API is faster and uses auth similarly to the rest of the Google Cloud APIs using a service account private key.
Google Compute Engine is a Virtual Machine hosting service. Currently it is built on version v1 of the GCE API.
As of 2015-12-07, we believe Fog for Google Compute engine (
Fog::Compute::Google) is feature complete.
If you are using Fog to interact with GCE, please keep Fog up to date and file issues for any anomalies you see or features you would like.
Fog implements v1beta3 of the Google Cloud SQL Admin API. This is a currently deprecated API. Pull Requests for updates would be greatly appreciated.
Fog implements v2beta2 of the Google Cloud Monitoring API. As of 2016-03-15, we believe Fog for Google Cloud Monitoring is feature complete. We are always looking for people to improve our code and test coverage, so please file issues for any anomalies you see or features you would like.
Note: You must have a version of google-api-client > 0.8.5 to use the Pub/Sub API; previous versions will not work.
Fog mostly implements v1 of the Google Cloud Pub/Sub API; however some less common API methods are missing. Pull requests for additions would be greatly appreciated.
Add the following two lines to your application's
gem 'fog-google' gem 'google-api-client', '~> 0.8.6'
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install fog-google
Follow the instructions to generate a private key. You can then create a fog credentials file at
~/.fog, which will look something like this:
my_credential: google_project: my-project google_client_email: firstname.lastname@example.org google_json_key_location: /path/to/my-project-xxxxxxxxxxxx.json
You can also provide service account credentials with
google_json_key_string or with
google_key_string for P12 private keys.
HMAC credentials follow a similar format:
my_credentials: google_storage_access_key_id: GOOGXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX google_storage_secret_access_key: XXXX+XXX/XXXXXXXX+XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
SSH-ing into instances
If you want to be able to bootstrap SSH-able instances, (using
servers.bootstrap,) be sure you have a key in
Once you've specified your credentials, you should be good to go!
