This is my foundations deployment tool and receipes. I use it to bootstrap any new project or machine. It's written in Python. Features at a glance:

  • a lot of Fabric receipes for Python/Django deployment in LXC/docker enviroments.
  • a lot of tasks dedicated to system management (eg. cherry-picked workers restart)
  • some receipes for personal machine deployment (eg. my laptop), that you should be able to customize/override/extend with your own. Especially, the 1nstall script will bootstrap a machine from scratch once the OS is installed.
  • a more flexible execution model tha Fabric.
  • includes some utility scripts (like a global package search tool, which handles brew, APT, PIP 2&3, Gem and NPM).

See the wiki for deeper explanations, design concepts, etc.
