arohacs fabfile.py Documentation
Anatomy of the project name
This is my fabfile.py script which leverages fab - the fabric binary - and so the name should be self-explanatory.
This is a python 2.7.x script and may not work correctly or at all when invoked by python 3. Please check your version by typing: python -V
OS Platform support and Testing
This program has been tested with Python 2.7 under virtualenvs and with python2 on Arch Linux. It might or might not work on a non-Linux/Unix platform. Use at your own risk, and modify at your leisure according to the GNU license.
Clone the repository to a directory of your choice: $ git clone git://github.com/arohacs/fabfile.git
Run the program with python version 2.7, for example:
$ fab --options
With this software, you can:
- Start and stop headless virtualbox machines
- Start and stop remote services
- Push and pull to dev machines and production machines
- Start VirtualBox hosts in headless mode
- Deploy via Push and Pull with rsync
I needed some automation to help me with Django development and deployment. Through trial and error, I developed this script. For security, all host names and user names are redacted, but it shouldn't be hard for you to figure out where to change variables.
