Installing Glusto

There is more than one way to install Glusto.

  • Installing the package directly from the github repo via the pip command.
  • Installing a docker image from Docker Hub.
  • Cloning from github and installing via setuptools.

Installing Glusto Directly from Git via Pip

The pip command can install directly from the Glusto project repo on

# pip install --upgrade git+git://


What?! But, why?!

To uninstall glusto, use the pip command.

# pip uninstall glusto

Using Glusto via Docker

A minimal Docker image is available to download and experiment with Glusto.


The image has currently been tested on Fedora 23 and Mac OS X (El Capitan) running Docker for Mac without issues.

To use the Glusto Docker image, pull the image from Docker Hub and go.

docker pull loadtheaccumulator/glusto
docker run -it --rm loadtheaccumulator/glusto /bin/bash

This takes you into the running container as root. Please reference the documentation on (or available all over the web now) for more information on using Docker.


You will need to pay particular attention to keys and configs when using the docker image. It might be useful to create a Dockerfile to build a new image, based on the Glusto image, that makes your own custom config, keys, and tests available. The Dockerfile used to create the Glusto image is available in the GitHub repo, so you can also just roll your own on the distro image of your choice. More on Docker later, but for now… experiment.
