SlipStream is a multi-cloud application management platform. The core of SlipStream and many of the cloud connectors are open-source and released under the Apache 2 License. Collectively this version is called the SlipStream Community Edition.

This guide focuses on the Community Edition, providing information on how to:

  • Obtain the source code from GitHub,
  • Build and package the software, and
  • Run SlipStream locally for development.

It also references the complete SlipStream API for those developers who want to integrate SlipStream in their own application DevOps processes.

The procedures (and API) are identical for the Enterprise Edition, which includes a number of additional cloud connectors for public cloud services. You only need to change the URLs to those for this edition.

SlipStream is written primarily in Java, Clojure, Python, ClojureScript and JavaScript. It uses Maven to build the software and various frameworks for unit testing.
