Brightbox Cloud module for fog (The Ruby cloud services library)

This gem is a module for the fog gem that allows you to manage resources in the Brightbox Cloud.

It is included by the main fog metagem but can used as an independent library in other applications.

This includes support for the following services:

  • Compute
    • Images
    • Load Balancers
    • SQL Cloud instances

Currently all services are grouped within compute but will be moved to their own sections when standardisation of fog progresses.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem "fog-brightbox"

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install fog-brightbox


Please see the following references for instructions using the main fog gem and its modules:
