UPDATE 03/24/16
See for details
Python API for creating Neutron Router with internal interface and external gateway RDO Mitaka (build 20160322)

You really cannot manage without this button :-

# . keystonerc_admin
# keystone tenant-list
Select <id> of yours tenant.Say xxxxxxxx
# neutron router-create  --tenant_id xxxxxxxxx  RouterViaCLI

Another option is to source your tenant credentials to shell and create file

#!/usr/bin/env python
from neutronclient.v2_0 import client
import os

def get_credentials():
    d = {}
    d['username'] = os.environ['OS_USERNAME']
    d['password'] = os.environ['OS_PASSWORD']
    d['auth_url'] = os.environ['OS_AUTH_URL']
    d['tenant_name'] = os.environ['OS_TENANT_NAME']
    return d

    credentials = get_credentials()
    neutron = client.Client(**credentials)
    neutron.format = 'json'
    request = {'router': {'name': 'RouterMitaka',
                          'admin_state_up': True}}
    router = neutron.create_router(request)
    router_id = router['router']['id']
    router = neutron.show_router(router_id)

    print("Execution completed")


python -m py_compile

Verify creation

[root@ServerCentOS01 test(keystone_boris)]# neutron router-list | grep Mitaka
| f5f49954-dbbc-4b2e-ade1-6dfe2e0755cf | RouterMitaka    | null

If you want understand Openstack you shouldn't need dashboard at all

1. Nova && Neutron CLI 
2. Python API ( keystoneclient,novaclient,neutronclient  and etc )
