A more advanced
fleet-stop command line tool that supports regular expressions. Fleet by Substack is an excellent for managing deployment. However stopping running processes can be a bit tedious. The
fleet-stopregex module provides a command-line tool to stop drone process command and commit in addition to the standard
fleet-stop pid#foo command. You can pass a regular expression as the last parameter. Any drones which match this regular expression will be stopped.
npm install -g fleet-stopregex
fleet-stopregex --field [command, commit, pid] <regex> <regex flags>
The script matches the regular expression against the specified all field for every spawned process. For any process which matches, that process is then killed. You will receive a prompt asking you to confirm killing the processes before they are killed
If field is omitted then pid will be used as the default.
Note that --field is aliased to -f, therefore
fleet-stopregex --field command =
fleet-stopregex -f command
To automatically stop all matching process without confirmation, pass the
--yes flag as a parameter
fleet-stopregex --yes --field commit fbdcfba04752fe6f42be6e49461b8d2dec63c31e
Stop PID Same as vanilla fleet-stop. However fleet-stopregex will retry the stop command until it succeeds
By Git Commit Stop all processes which have an exact commit
fleet-stopregex --field commit fbdcfba04752fe6f42be6e49461b8d2dec63c31e
Regex Flags Flags can be passed as optional last parameter. This flags are the same as you would pass to new RegExp(pattern, flags).
# stop processes with name both foo or Foo fleet-stopregex --field command foo i
Stop everything Pass a "." as the regex which will match everything
Note that * will not work as regex string unless it is quoted as "*"
# Good fleet-stopregex "*"
# Bad fleet-stopregex *
This module came out of the managing redeploy issue
