This statement, taken from the Nutanix Calm DSL GitHub repository, outlines in quite simple terms what the DSL actually is. Aside from that, the Nutanix Calm DSL can be easily described as the first Nutanix Calm SDK.
With that in mind, the resources on this page are selected articles and technical resources that are aimed at helping you get familiar with configuring and using the Nutanix Calm DSL.
The videos available below are previous Nutanix Calm DSL Live Streams, presented by NutanixDevLIVE! From setting up the DSL to using the DSL via our Docker container, everything you need to know is right here.
Alex and Mark take us through the first half of the Calm DSL lab, where they set up a VM to run Docker, install and run the Nutanix Calm DSL Docker, and more.
Alex and Mark take us through the second half of the Calm DSL Lab. They cover blueprint decompile and then create a blueprint from scratch using the Calm DSL and Docker.
The labs below suit those that prefer to learn by doing. From start to finish, we’ll walk you through learning the lab material.
The articles below are a curated set of content from the Nutanix.dev blog. This content relates specifically to the Nutanix Calm DSL and it is strongly recommended to consume it in the order shown.
