Note: The C# code described here is no longer being supported by Rackspace. The newer OpenStack .NET SDK is described on our API documentation site.
In this tutorial we will cover the installation of the C# API. This tutorial assumes you have Visual Studio installed either Express or the full version.
What we need
- Head to the Rackerlabs Github.
- Download the API I recommend downloading this in zip format.
- Unpack the Zip onto your Desktop.
- Navigate to to the newly unpacked folder and drill down one level.
- You should see a file that is called something like this com.mosso.cloudfiles.sln.
- Double Click that file. It should fire up Visual Studio and load up a couple of different Sources. Note: I did get an error that popped up for the express version of Visual Studio just click ok when it pops up its no big deal; nor does it cause any problems later.
- Once you have Visual Studio loaded Right click the com.mosso.cloudfiles package and select build.
- Once the build completes go ahead Open the API directory again and drill down to com.mosso.cloudfiles->bin->Release if all is well there should be two DLLs and a couple of other files there.
- You have successfully built the C Sharp API
