Podman: A tool for Managing OCI Containers and Pods

Podman: A tool for managing OCI containers and pods

Podman (the POD MANager) is a tool for managing containers and images, volumes mounted into those containers, and pods made from groups of containers. Podman runs containers on Linux, but can also be used on Mac and Windows systems using a Podman-managed virtual machine. Podman is based on libpod, a library for container lifecycle management that is also contained in this repository. The libpod library provides APIs for managing containers, pods, container images, and volumes.

Latest Version: 4.2.0

Overview and scope

At a high level, the scope of Podman and libpod is the following:

  • Support for multiple container image formats, including OCI and Docker images.
  • Full management of those images, including pulling from various sources (including trust and verification), creating (built via Containerfile or Dockerfile or committed from a container), and pushing to registries and other storage backends.
  • Full management of container lifecycle, including creation (both from an image and from an exploded root filesystem), running, checkpointing and restoring (via CRIU), and removal.
  • Full management of container networking, using CNI, Netavark, and slirp4netns
  • Support for pods, groups of containers that share resources and are managed together.
  • Support for running containers and pods without root or other elevated privileges.
  • Resource isolation of containers and pods.
  • Support for a Docker-compatible CLI interface, which can both run containers locally and on remote systems.
  • No manager daemon, for improved security and lower resource utilization at idle.
  • Support for a REST API providing both a Docker-compatible interface and an improved interface exposing advanced Podman functionality.
  • Support for running on Windows and Mac via virtual machines run by podman machine.

Roadmap

  1. A fully-featured GUI frontend for podman machine
  2. Further improvements to podman generate kube and podman play kube
  3. Improvements to Pods, including the addition of pod-level resource limits

Communications

If you think you've identified a security issue in the project, please DO NOT report the issue publicly via the GitHub issue tracker, mailing list, or IRC. Instead, send an email with as many details as possible to security@lists.podman.io. This is a private mailing list for the core maintainers.

For general questions and discussion, please use Podman's channels.

For discussions around issues/bugs and features, you can use the GitHub issues and PRs tracking system.

There is also a mailing list at lists.podman.io. You can subscribe by sending a message to podman-join@lists.podman.io with the subject subscribe.

Rootless

Podman can be easily run as a normal user, without requiring a setuid binary. When run without root, Podman containers use user namespaces to set root in the container to the user running Podman. Rootless Podman runs locked-down containers with no privileges that the user running the container does not have. Some of these restrictions can be lifted (via --privileged, for example), but rootless containers will never have more privileges than the user that launched them. If you run Podman as your user and mount in /etc/passwd from the host, you still won't be able to change it, since your user doesn't have permission to do so.

Almost all normal Podman functionality is available, though there are some shortcomings. Any recent Podman release should be able to run rootless without any additional configuration, though your operating system may require some additional configuration detailed in the install guide.

A little configuration by an administrator is required before rootless Podman can be used, the necessary setup is documented here.

Podman Desktop

Podman Desktop is a new project under the container organization built to help the developers working with containers from their local environment with a desktop UI. Podman Desktop is still in its early days, but already provides capabilities to list your images, interact with containers (access logs, get a terminal), connect to registries (pull private images, push your images) and configure podman settings (proxies). The project develops on Github and contributors are welcome.

Out of scope

  • Specialized signing and pushing of images to various storage backends. See Skopeo for those tasks.
  • Support for the Kubernetes CRI interface for container management. The CRI-O daemon specializes in that.

OCI Projects Plans

Podman uses OCI projects and best of breed libraries for different aspects:

  • Runtime: We use the OCI runtime tools to generate OCI runtime configurations that can be used with any OCI-compliant runtime, like crun and runc.
  • Images: Image management uses the containers/image library.
  • Storage: Container and image storage is managed by containers/storage.
  • Networking: Networking support through use of Netavark and Aardvark. Support for CNI is also available. Rootless networking is handled via slirp4netns.
  • Builds: Builds are supported via Buildah.
  • Conmon: Conmon is a tool for monitoring OCI runtimes, used by both Podman and CRI-O.
  • Seccomp: A unified Seccomp policy for Podman, Buildah, and CRI-O.

Buildah and Podman relationship

Buildah and Podman are two complementary open-source projects that are available on most Linux platforms and both projects reside at GitHub.com with Buildah here and Podman here. Both, Buildah and Podman are command line tools that work on Open Container Initiative (OCI) images and containers. The two projects differentiate in their specialization.

Buildah specializes in building OCI images. Buildah's commands replicate all of the commands that are found in a Dockerfile. This allows building images with and without Dockerfiles while not requiring any root privileges. Buildah’s ultimate goal is to provide a lower-level coreutils interface to build images. The flexibility of building images without Dockerfiles allows for the integration of other scripting languages into the build process. Buildah follows a simple fork-exec model and does not run as a daemon but it is based on a comprehensive API in golang, which can be vendored into other tools.

Podman specializes in all of the commands and functions that help you to maintain and modify OCI images, such as pulling and tagging. It also allows you to create, run, and maintain those containers created from those images. For building container images via Dockerfiles, Podman uses Buildah's golang API and can be installed independently from Buildah.

A major difference between Podman and Buildah is their concept of a container. Podman allows users to create "traditional containers" where the intent of these containers is to be long lived. While Buildah containers are really just created to allow content to be added back to the container image. An easy way to think of it is the buildah run command emulates the RUN command in a Dockerfile while the podman run command emulates the docker run command in functionality. Because of this and their underlying storage differences, you can not see Podman containers from within Buildah or vice versa.

In short, Buildah is an efficient way to create OCI images while Podman allows you to manage and maintain those images and containers in a production environment using familiar container cli commands. For more details, see the Container Tools Guide.

50+ Useful Kubernetes Tools for 2020 - Part 2

Introduction

Last year, we provided a list of Kubernetes tools that proved so popular we have decided to curate another list of some useful additions for working with the platform—among which are many tools that we personally use here at Caylent. Check out the original tools list here in case you missed it.

According to a recent survey done by Stackrox, the dominance Kubernetes enjoys in the market continues to be reinforced, with 86% of respondents using it for container orchestration.

(State of Kubernetes and Container Security, 2020)

And as you can see below, more and more companies are jumping into containerization for their apps. If you’re among them, here are some tools to aid you going forward as Kubernetes continues its rapid growth.

Fully Customizable & Extensible Action Sheet Controller

XLActionController

By XMARTLABS.

XLActionController is an extensible library to quickly create any custom action sheet controller.

Examples

demo_spotify.gifdemo_twitter.gifdemo_tweetbot.gif
demo_periscope.gifdemo_youtube.gifdemo_skype.gif

The action sheet controllers shown above were entirely created using XLActionController and are included in the Examples. To run the Example project: clone XLActionController repository, open XLActionController workspace and run the Example project.

The code snippet below shows how to present the Tweetbot action sheet controller:

let actionController = TweetbotActionController()

actionController.addAction(Action("View Details", style: .default, handler: { action in
  // do something useful
}))
actionController.addAction(Action("View Retweets", style: .default, handler: { action in
  // do something useful
}))
actionController.addAction(Action("View in Favstar", style: .default, handler: { action in
  // do something useful
}))
actionController.addAction(Action("Translate", style: .default, executeImmediatelyOnTouch: true, handler: { action in
  // do something useful
}))

actionController.addSection(Section())
actionController.addAction(Action("Cancel", style: .cancel, handler:nil))

present(actionController, animated: true, completion: nil)

As you may have noticed, the library usage looks pretty similar to UIAlertController.

Actions' handlers are executed after the alert controller is dismissed from screen. If you want, you can change this passing true to the action's constructor to the argument executeImmediatelyOnTouch.

Behind the scenes XLActionController uses a UICollectionView to display the action sheet.

Usage

First create a custom action sheet view controller by extending from the ActionController generic class. For details on how to create a custom action sheet controller look at the Extensibility section.

For instance, let's suppose we've already created TwitterActionController.

// Instantiate custom action sheet controller
let actionSheet = TwitterActionController()
// set up a header title
actionSheet.headerData = "Accounts"
// Add some actions, note that the first parameter of `Action` initializer is `ActionData`.
actionSheet.addAction(Action(ActionData(title: "Xmartlabs", subtitle: "@xmartlabs", image: UIImage(named: "tw-xmartlabs")!), style: .default, handler: { action in
   // do something useful
}))
actionSheet.addAction(Action(ActionData(title: "Miguel", subtitle: "@remer88", image: UIImage(named: "tw-remer")!), style: .default, handler: { action in
   // do something useful
}))
// present actionSheet like any other view controller
present(actionSheet, animated: true, completion: nil)

As the code above illustrates, there are no relevant differences compared to the UIAlertController API.

The main difference is that XLActionController works with any header data type and not only the standard UIAlertController title and message properties. Similarly XLActionController's Action works with any data Type and not only the title string.

// XLActionController:
xlActionController.headerData = SpotifyHeaderData(title: "The Fast And The Furious Soundtrack Collection", subtitle: "Various Artists", image: UIImage(named: "sp-header-icon")!)

// vs UIAlertController:
uiActionController.title = "The Fast And The Furious Soundtrack Collection" // no way to pass an image
uiActionController.message = "Various Artists"
// XLActionController:
let xlAction = Action(ActionData(title: "Save Full Album", image: UIImage(named: "sp-add-icon")!), style: .default, handler: { action in })
// notice that we are able to pass an image in addition to the title
xlActionController.addAction(xlAction)

// vs UIAlertController:
let uiAction = UIAlertAction(title: "Xmartlabs", style: .default, handler: { action in }))
uiActionController.addAction(uiAction)

This can be accomplished because XLActionController is a generic type.

Another important difference is that XLActionController provides a way to add action sections as illustrated in the code below:

  actionController.addSection(Section())

and also each section has a data property. This property is generic, so that it can hold any type. This data will be used to create this section's header view.

let section = actionController.addSection(Section())
section.data = "String" // assuming section data Type is String

Each section contains a set of actions. We typically use sections to show a header view above a set of actions.

Extensibility

ActionController uses a UICollectionView to show actions and headers on screen. Actions will be rendered as instances of UICollectionViewCell. You can use your own subclass of UICollectionViewCell by specifying it in the action controller declaration. Additionally, ActionController allows you to specify a global header and a section header. Headers are shown as collection view's supplementary views.

The ActionController class is a generic type that works with any cell, header, section header type and its associated data types.

Create your custom action sheet controller

XLActionController provides extension points to specify a whole new look and feel to our custom sheet controller and to tweak present and dismiss animations. Let's see an example:

// As first step we should extend the ActionController generic type
public class PeriscopeActionController: ActionController<PeriscopeCell, String, PeriscopeHeader, String, UICollectionReusableView, Void> {

    // override init in order to customize behavior and animations
    public override init(nibName nibNameOrNil: String? = nil, bundle nibBundleOrNil: Bundle? = nil) {
        super.init(nibName: nibNameOrNil, bundle: nibBundleOrNil)
        // customizing behavior and present/dismiss animations
        settings.behavior.hideOnScrollDown = false
        settings.animation.scale = nil
        settings.animation.present.duration = 0.6
        settings.animation.dismiss.duration = 0.5
        settings.animation.dismiss.options = .curveEaseIn
        settings.animation.dismiss.offset = 30

        // providing a specific collection view cell which will be used to display each action, height parameter expects a block that returns the cell height for a particular action.
        cellSpec = .nibFile(nibName: "PeriscopeCell", bundle: Bundle(for: PeriscopeCell.self), height: { _ in 60})
        // providing a specific view that will render each section header.
        sectionHeaderSpec = .cellClass(height: { _ in 5 })
        // providing a specific view that will render the action sheet header. We calculate its height according the text that should be displayed.
        headerSpec = .cellClass(height: { [weak self] (headerData: String) in
            guard let me = self else { return 0 }
            let label = UILabel(frame: CGRect(x: 0, y: 0, width: me.view.frame.width - 40, height: CGFloat.greatestFiniteMagnitude))
            label.numberOfLines = 0
            label.font = .systemFontOfSize(17.0)
            label.text = headerData
            label.sizeToFit()
            return label.frame.size.height + 20
        })

        // once we specify the views, we have to provide three blocks that will be used to set up these views.
        // block used to setup the header. Header view and the header are passed as block parameters
        onConfigureHeader = { [weak self] header, headerData in
            guard let me = self else { return }
            header.label.frame = CGRect(x: 0, y: 0, width: me.view.frame.size.width - 40, height: CGFloat.greatestFiniteMagnitude)
            header.label.text = headerData
            header.label.sizeToFit()
            header.label.center = CGPoint(x: header.frame.size.width  / 2, y: header.frame.size.height / 2)
        }
        // block used to setup the section header
        onConfigureSectionHeader = { sectionHeader, sectionHeaderData in
            sectionHeader.backgroundColor = UIColor(white: 0.95, alpha: 1.0)
        }
        // block used to setup the collection view cell
        onConfigureCellForAction = { [weak self] cell, action, indexPath in
            cell.setup(action.data, detail: nil, image: nil)
            cell.separatorView?.isHidden = indexPath.item == self!.collectionView.numberOfItems(inSection: indexPath.section) - 1
            cell.alpha = action.enabled ? 1.0 : 0.5
            cell.actionTitleLabel?.textColor = action.style == .destructive ? UIColor(red: 210/255.0, green: 77/255.0, blue: 56/255.0, alpha: 1.0) : UIColor(red: 0.28, green: 0.64, blue: 0.76, alpha: 1.0)
        }
    }
}

ActionController type declaration:

public class ActionController<ActionViewType: UICollectionViewCell, ActionDataType, HeaderViewType: UICollectionReusableView, HeaderDataType, SectionHeaderViewType: UICollectionReusableView, SectionHeaderDataType>

When extending ActionController we must specify the following view types ActionViewType, HeaderViewType, SectionHeaderViewType. These types are the cell type used to render an action, the view used to render the action sheet header and the view used to render the section header.

Each view type has its associated data: ActionDataType, HeaderDataType, SectionHeaderDataType respectively.

If your custom action sheet doesn't have a header view we can use UICollectionReusableView as HeaderViewType and Void as HeaderDataType. If it doesn't have a section header view you can use UICollectionReusableView as SectionHeaderViewType and Void as SectionHeaderDataType.

The code below shows how we specify these types for the action controllers provided in the example project:

class PeriscopeActionController: ActionController<PeriscopeCell, String, PeriscopeHeader, String, UICollectionReusableView, Void> { ... } // doesn't need to show a section header
class SpotifyActionController: ActionController<SpotifyCell, ActionData, SpotifyHeaderView, SpotifyHeaderData, UICollectionReusableView, Void> { ... } // doesn't need to show a section header
class TwitterActionController: ActionController<TwitterCell, ActionData, TwitterActionControllerHeader, String, UICollectionReusableView, Void> { ... } // doesn't need to show a section header
class YoutubeActionController: ActionController<YoutubeCell, ActionData, UICollectionReusableView, Void, UICollectionReusableView, Void>

Tweaking default style and animation parameters

By following the previous section steps you should already be able to play with your custom action controller. It happens quite often that we need some other customization such as zooming out the presenting view, changing the status bar color or customizing the default present and dismiss animation.

ActionController class defines the settings property of type ActionSheetControllerSettings to tweak all these.

UICollectionView's behavior

// Indicates if the action controller must be dismissed when the user taps the background view. `true` by default.
settings.behavior.hideOnTap: Bool
// Indicates if the action controller must be dismissed when the user scrolls down the collection view. `true` by default.
settings.behavior.hideOnScrollDown: Bool
// Indicates if the collectionView's scroll is enabled. `false` by default.
settings.behavior.scrollEnabled: Bool
// Controls whether the collection view scroll bounces past the edge of content and back again. `false` by default.
settings.behavior.bounces: Bool
// Indicates if the collection view layout will use UIDynamics to animate its items. `false` by default.
settings.behavior.useDynamics: Bool
// Determines whether the navigation bar is hidden when action controller is being presented. `true` by default
settings.hideCollectionViewBehindCancelView: Bool

UICollectionView Style

// Margins between the collection view and the container view's margins. `0` by default
settings.collectionView.lateralMargin: CGFloat
// Cells height when UIDynamics is used to animate items. `50` by default.
settings.collectionView.cellHeightWhenDynamicsIsUsed: CGFloat

Animation settings

Struct that contains all properties related to presentation & dismissal animations

// Used to scale the presenting view controller when the action controller is being presented. If `nil` is set, then the presenting view controller won't be scaled. `(0.9, 0.9)` by default.
settings.animation.scale: CGSize? = CGSize(width: 0.9, height: 0.9)

Present animation settings

// damping value for the animation block. `1.0` by default.
settings.animation.present.damping: CGFloat
// delay for the animation block. `0.0` by default.
settings.animation.present.delay: TimeInterval
// Indicates the animation duration. `0.7` by default.
settings.animation.present.duration: TimeInterval
// Used as `springVelocity` for the animation block. `0.0` by default.
settings.animation.present.springVelocity: CGFloat
// Present animation options. `UIViewAnimationOptions.curveEaseOut` by default.
settings.animation.present.options: UIViewAnimationOptions

Dismiss animation settings

// damping value for the animation block. `1.0` by default.
settings.animation.dismiss.damping: CGFloat
// Used as delay for the animation block. `0.0` by default.
settings.animation.dismiss.delay: TimeInterval
// animation duration. `0.7` by default.
settings.animation.dismiss.duration: TimeInterval
// springVelocity for the animation block. `0.0` by default
settings.animation.dismiss.springVelocity: CGFloat
// dismiss animation options. `UIViewAnimationOptions.curveEaseIn` by default
settings.animation.dismiss.options: UIViewAnimationOptions

StatusBar Style

// Indicates if the status bar should be visible or hidden when the action controller is visible. Its default value is `true`
settings.statusBar.showStatusBar: Bool
// Determines the style of the device’s status bar when the action controller is visible. `UIStatusBarStyle.LightContent` by default.
settings.statusBar.style: UIStatusBarStyle
// Determines whether the action controller takes over control of status bar appearance from the presenting view controller. `true` by default.
settings.statusBar.modalPresentationCapturesStatusBarAppearance: Bool

Cancel view style

Sometimes we need to show a cancel view below the collection view. This is the case of the SpotifyActionController. These properties have nothing to do with the actions added to an action Controller nor with the actions with .Cancel as style value.

 // Indicates if the cancel view is shown. `false` by default.
settings.cancelView.showCancel: Bool
 // Cancel view's title. "Cancel" by default.
settings.cancelView.title: String?
 // Cancel view's height. `60` by default.
settings.cancelView.height: CGFloat
 // Cancel view's background color. `UIColor.black.withAlphaComponent(0.8)` by default.
settings.cancelView.backgroundColor: UIColor
// Indicates if the collection view is partially hidden by the cancelView when it is pulled down.
settings.cancelView.hideCollectionViewBehindCancelView: Bool

Advanced animations

If tweaking previous settings is not enough to make the animations work like you want, XLActionController allows you to change the present/dismiss animation by overriding some functions.

Presentation

open func presentView(_ presentedView: UIView, presentingView: UIView, animationDuration: Double, completion: ((_ completed: Bool) -> Void)?)

The function above is responsible for making the present animation. It encapsulates how the presentation is performed and invokes onWillPresentView, performCustomPresentationAnimation and onDidPresentView to allow you to change a specific point of the animation.

Typically we don't need to override presentView function because overriding either onWillPresentView, performCustomPresentationAnimation or onDidPresentView is enough.

open func onWillPresentView()

onWillPresentView is called before the animation block starts. Any change here won't be animated. It's intended to set the initial animated properties values.

open func performCustomPresentationAnimation(_ presentedView: UIView, presentingView: UIView)

performCustomPresentationAnimation is called from within the main animation block.

open func onDidPresentView()

After the present animation is completed, presentView calls onDidPresentView from within completion callback.

onWillPresentView, performCustomPresentationAnimation, onDidPresentView won't be invoked if you override presentView implementation.

Dismissal

Dismissal animation can be customized in the same way as presentation animation.

open func dismissView(_ presentedView: UIView, presentingView: UIView, animationDuration: Double, completion: ((_ completed: Bool) -> Void)?)

The function above is responsible for making the dismissal animation. It encapsulates how the dismissal animation is performed and invokes onWillDismissView, performCustomDismissingAnimation and onDidDismissView to allow you to change an specific point of the animation.

Typically we don't need to override dismissView method because overriding either onWillDismissView, performCustomDismissingAnimationoronDidDismissView` is enough.

open func onWillDismissView()

Overrides onWillDismissView to perform any set up before the animation begins.

open func performCustomDismissingAnimation(_ presentedView: UIView, presentingView: UIView)

performCustomDismissingAnimation function is invoked from within the main animation block.

open func onDidDismissView()

After the dismissal animation completes, dismissView calls onDidDismissView from within completion callback.

onWillDismissView, performCustomDismissingAnimation, onDidDismissView won't be invoked if you override dismissView implementation.
