Fabric is an incredible tool to automate administration of remote machines. As Fabric's function are rather low-level, you'll probably quickly see a need for more high-level functions such as add/remove users and groups, install/upgrade packages, etc.
Cuisine is a small set of functions that sit on top of Fabric, to abstract common administration operations such as file/dir operations, user/group creation, package install/upgrade, making it easier to write portable administration and deployment scripts.
Cuisine's features are:
- Small, easy to read, a single file API: <object>_<operation>() e.g. dir_exists(location) tells if there is a remote directory at the given location.
- Covers file/dir operations, user/group operations, package operations
- Text processing and template functions
- All functions are lazy: they will actually only do things when the change is required.
cuisine is on PyPI so you can either use
easy_install -U cuisine
pip install cuisine to install it. Otherwise, you can download
the source from GitHub and
python setup.py install.
