Task : Kubernetes Integration with Python-CGI ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป

Task Description

๐Ÿ‘‰๐ŸปIn continuation of task 7.1 you need to Integrate Kubernetes commands that can be run through web-UI.

๐Ÿ‘‰ This time create webUI page as such that using normal English conversation your all commands can run in background.
Example โ€” when we write โ€˜run deployment using httpd imageโ€™ then it run complete deployment command in backend.

For creating this application we have to use CGI programming.

What is CGI?

The Common Gateway Interface, or CGI, is a standard for external gateway programs to interface with information servers such as HTTP servers

For CGI programming with python we have to follow these steps.

  1. First go inside the /var/www/cgi-bin folder.
  2. Create a file with .py extension and write the code
  3. Make the file executable by using chmod command
  4. Then start the httpd service and disable the firewall.

We will implement the AJAX concept using JavaScript to connect it with the python CGI program.

What is AJAX?

Ajax is a set of web development techniques using many web technologies on the client-side to create asynchronous web applications. With Ajax, web applications can send and retrieve data from a server asynchronously without interfering with the display and behavior of the existing page.
