Welcome to Murano Documentation

Murano is an open source OpenStack project that combines an application catalog with versatile tooling to simplify and accelerate packaging and deployment. It can be used with almost any application and service in OpenStack.

Murano project consists of several source code repositories:

  • murano – the main repository. It contains code for Murano API server, Murano engine and MuranoPL.
  • murano-agent – the agent that runs on guest VMs and executes the deployment plan.
  • murano-dashboard – Murano UI implemented as a plugin for the OpenStack Dashboard.
  • python-muranoclient – Client library and CLI client for Murano.


Administrator Documentation, Contributor Documentation, and Appendix are under development at the moment.
