    Elixir client for the OVH API.



  • ExOvh Build Status Hex Version Hex docs Deps Status

    ExOvh is an helper library for the elixir language for the Ovh Api. To use the Openstack components of the OVH API, see Openstex

    Project Features

    • A Supervised agent running in the background which stores frequently accessed authentication information.
    • Helper modules for making building requests to the Ovh Api.
    • Request functions to send requests to the Ovh Api.

    Getting started - Step 1: Generating the OVH application key, application secret and consumer key.

    • This may be done manually by going to and following the directions outlined by OVH at their first steps guide.

    • Alternatively, this may be achieved by running a mix task. This saves me a lot of time when generating a new application.

    • Documentation here

    Getting Started - Step 2: Generating the OVH client module for your elixir application

    • The client module (eg AwesomeApp.OvhClient) is the interface for accessing the functions of the ex_ovh API.

    • Documentation here


    Examples - Method 1 - Building the queries manually and send the request (my preferred way)

    • GET /me/api/application/#{app_id}

      app_id = "0"
      req = %HTTPipe.Request{
      method: :get,
      url: "/me/api/application/#{app_id}"
    • GET /cloud/project/{serviceName}/storage

      service_name = "service_name"
      req = %HTTPipe.Request{
      method: :get,
      url: "/cloud/project/#{service_name}/storage"
      |> MyApp.OvhClient.request!()

    Examples - Method 2 - Build the request using provided helper functions and send the request

    Note: Helper functions are only available currently for the /Cloud portion of the OVH API. Eventually, I would like to write a macro to create the queries.

    • GET /cloud/project/{serviceName}/storage

      ExOvh.V1.Cloud.get_containers(service_name) |> ExOvh.request!()
