About

fabtools includes useful functions to help you write your Fabric files.

fabtools makes it easier to manage system users, packages, databases, etc.

fabtools includes a number of low-level actions, as well as a higher level interface called fabtools.require.

Using fabtools.require allows you to use a more declarative style, similar to Chef or Puppet.

Installing

To install the latest release from PyPI

$ pip install fabtools

To install the latest development version from GitHub

$ pip install git+git://github.com/ronnix/fabtools.git

Example

Here is an example fabfile.py using fabtools

from fabric.api import *
from fabtools import require
import fabtools

@task
def setup():

    # Require some Debian/Ubuntu packages
    require.deb.packages([
        'imagemagick',
        'libxml2-dev',
    ])

    # Require a Python package
    with fabtools.python.virtualenv('/home/myuser/env'):
        require.python.package('pyramid')

    # Require an email server
    require.postfix.server('example.com')

    # Require a PostgreSQL server
    require.postgres.server()
    require.postgres.user('myuser', 's3cr3tp4ssw0rd')
    require.postgres.database('myappsdb', 'myuser')

    # Require a supervisor process for our app
    require.supervisor.process('myapp',
        command='/home/myuser/env/bin/gunicorn_paster /home/myuser/env/myapp/production.ini',
        directory='/home/myuser/env/myapp',
        user='myuser'
        )

    # Require an nginx server proxying to our app
    require.nginx.proxied_site('example.com',
        docroot='/home/myuser/env/myapp/myapp/public',
        proxy_url='http://127.0.0.1:8888'
