Why pyinfra? Design features include:
🚀Super fast execution over thousands of hosts with predictable performance. 🚨Instant debugging with realtime stdin/stdout/stderr output (
🔄Idempotent operations that enable diffs and
--dryruns before executing any changes.
📦Extendable with any Python package as configured & written in standard Python. 💻Agentless execution against SSH/Docker/subprocess/WinRM hosts. 🔌Integrated with Docker, Terraform, Vagrant/Mech & Ansible out of the box.
When you run pyinfra you'll see something like (non animated version):
Install pyinfra with
pipx (recommended) or
pipx install pyinfra
Now you can execute commands on hosts via SSH:
pyinfra my-server.net exec -- echo "hello world"
Or execute in Docker, on the local machine, and other connectors:
pyinfra @docker/ubuntu exec -- echo "Hello world" pyinfra @local exec -- echo "Hello world"
As well as executing commands you can define state using operations:
# Install iftop apt package if not present pyinfra @docker/ubuntu apt.packages iftop update=true _sudo=true
Which can then be saved as a Python file like
from pyinfra.operations import apt apt.packages( name="Ensure iftop is installed", packages=['iftop'], update=True, _sudo=True, )
The hosts can also be saved in a file, for example
targets = ["@docker/ubuntu", "my-test-server.net"]
And executed together:
pyinfra inventory.py deploy.py
Now you know the building blocks of pyinfra! By combining inventory, operations and Python code you can deploy anything.
