Shipper is a fabric for docker - tool for orchestrating docker containers. Supports parallel execution and can generate command line interface.
from shipper import Shipper, run, command @command def hello(): print Shipper().containers(pretty=True) run()
Now your file is a fully functional command line tool that talks to local docker!
python hello.py -h python hello.py hello -h python hello.py hello
The fun part is you can turn your tiny hello.py to a massive scale docker client in 1 change:
print Shipper(["host-a", "host-b", "host-c", "host-d"]).containers(pretty=True)
All the steps would be executed in parallel.
More complex example:
from shipper import Shipper, run, command @command def build(tag, path): s = Shipper() s.build(tag=tag, path=path) @command def ps(all=False, running=True): s = Shipper(["host-a", "host-b"]) print s.containers(pretty=True, all=all, running=running) @command def start(image, command, ports=None): if ports: ports = ports.split(",") s = Shipper() s.run(image, command, ports=ports, once=True) @command def stop(image=None): s = Shipper() s.stop(*s.containers(image=image, running=True)) run()
Now you can use the env.py file as your command line tool, shipper has generated the command line interface.
python env.py ps --all python env.py build base ~/images/base python env.py build stop --image dev/.*
git clone email@example.com:mailgun/shipper.git cd shipper python setup.py install
Undergoing development. Is already useful for building dev environments.
