DeusEx

GitHub DDOSings getting you down and stopping your deploys? GIT IS DISTRIBUTED, SUCKA. The deus_ex gem allows you to easily fire up cloud instance, push your repo to it, and use that for your deploy until GitHub is back on its feet.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'deus_ex'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install deus_ex

The gem uses fog to manage the connection to various cloud providers, so you'll need to put your credentials into .machina.yml, like so:

---
:authentication:
  :provider: 'aws'
  :aws_access_key_id: my_access_key
  :aws_secret_access_key: my_secret_access_key
:server_create:
  :flavor_ref: 't1.micro'
  :image_ref: 'ami-a9184ac0'
  :key_name: 'bover'
:username: ubuntu
:private_key_path: /home/terry/.ssh/bover.pem

Here is an OpenStack example to get a better idea of all the options available:

---
:authentication:
  :provider: 'openstack'
  :openstack_username: '***********'
  :openstack_api_key: '*************'
  :openstack_auth_url: 'https://cloud.example.com:35357/v2.0/tokens'
  :openstack_tenant: 'tenant_name'
  :openstack_region: 'region-b.geo-1'
:server_create:
  :flavor_ref: '103'
  :image_ref: '8c096c29-a666-4b82-99c4-c77dc70cfb40'
  :key_name: 'bover'
  :nics: [ 'net_id': '76abe0b1-581a-4698-b200-a2e890f4eb8d' ]
:floating_ip_create:
  :floating_network_id: '7da74520-9d5e-427b-a508-213c84e69616'
:public_key_path: /home/terry/.ssh/bover.pub
:private_key_path: /home/terry/.ssh/bover.pem
:username: ubuntu

Usage

Once the gem's bundled, run the following to create your temporary instance:

$ bundle exec deus_ex

The gem will tell you what it's doing, and will give you the git URL for your new deploy-fromable repo. Use that for your deploy, then tear down your instance with

$ bundle exec deus_ex cleanup

You can check to see if you have any active deus_ex instances running, as well:

$ bundle exec deus_ex status

Warning!

This may not work if your app has dependencies on GitHub beyond the deployment repository -- if you're using git URLs for gems, for instance.
