Fujitsu KEAN Stack Development

KEAN – K5, Express, Angular(2), NodeJS

I’m kean (yes it’s deliberate) to demonstrate how to use Fujitsu’s K5 IaaS or OpenStack Keystone authentication API. I’m trying a new medium of video rather than just a boring blog post, hopefully it’ll be easier to consume.

I’ve chosen Angular 2 as the development framework as it’s very popular today – you don’t need to know Angular to be able to follow the video. It’s my first foray into web front-end development and I’d be lying if I said it was easy – however it’s a heck of a lot easier now with frameworks like Angular from Google, +1.

The application simply takes your K5 credentials and makes a request to Keystone, the backend K5 authentication (identity) endpoint, and if these credentials are valid it presents your token back to you.

As K5’s endpoints don’t support Cross-Origin-Resource-Sharing (CORS) I’ve provided a workaround detailed in this blog .

Following the video you’ll find all the source code.

Happy Stacking!
