A Horizon plugin for Heat project

Registered by xinni on 2017-09-14

To make sure the further developed & user friendly UI for Heat users, it’s better to decouple Heat Dashboard from Horizon & make it as a pluggable module.

The goal of this idea is to reproduce all functions what users can take in the current Horizon&Heat Dashboard.
In addition to that, we should resolve the following paint point of Heat users.
--
Horizon only accepts heat orchestration templates as plain texts/files.
Complaints are coming for the troubles of writing the templates.
This is a proposal of a horizon plugin to create Heat Orchestration Templates in drag & drop operation.

The plugin should support the following functions.
* add/remove OpenStack resources to/from the canvas in drag-and-drop manner.
* add/remove the relations/dependencies among the resources.
* edit and save parameters of the resources and relations.
* (optional) support basic validation for the input parameters.
* generate Heat Orchestration Template from all of what you added to the canvas.
* save/load your created template
