Hey everyone,

I did a quick hack in go about a month ago and gluster-rest was the
outcome. You can find it at https://github.com/kshlm/gluster-rest

The program is basically a wrapper around the gluster cli. It translates
incoming requests to the correct gluster cli command, executes the cli
command with the '--xml' parameter to get xml output and returns the xml

For eg,
For getting volume info, do a GET request on
For getting volume status, do a GET request on

You just replace all the spaces in a gluster command by '/'s and prepend
server information to get the URI for the request. This doesn't work with
commands which take bricks as args (no way to escape the '/'s in brick
paths), so they don't work for now. Also, proper errors are not returned.

There is still a lot to do, to make this acceptable for normal usage.

Have a look at this, run it, and if you have any comments, ideas etc., just
let me know.
