Blueprint reverse engineers servers
- Easy configuration management.
- Detect relevant packages, files, and source installs.
- Generate reusable server configs.
- Convert blueprints to Puppet or Chef.
- No DSLs, no extra servers, no workflow changes.
Blueprint looks inside popular package managers, finds changes you made to configuration files, and archives software you built from source. It runs on Debian- and RPM-based Linux distros with Python >= 2.6 and Git >= 1.7. Move blueprints around with Blueprint I/O.
Create a blueprint
blueprint create my-first-blueprint
Blueprint inspects your server and stores the results in its local repository.
blueprint list shows all the blueprints you've created on this server.
Apply a blueprint
blueprint apply my-first-blueprint
Blueprint generates shell code from my-first-blueprint and executes it on the server.
Generate POSIX shell code from a blueprint
blueprint show -S my-first-blueprint
my-first-blueprint.sh is written to your working directory. Try out
-C to generate a Puppet module or a Chef cookbook.
Diff a blueprint
blueprint diff foo bar baz
Blueprint subtracts bar from foo. Files, packages and source that appears in foo but not bar will be carried over to baz and everything else will be dropped.
- A Debian- or RPM-based Linux distribution
- Python >= 2.6
- Git >= 1.7
From source on Debian, Ubuntu, and Fedora
git clone git://github.com/devstructure/blueprint.git cd blueprint && make && sudo make install
From source on CentOS and RHEL 5
rpm -Uvh http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/5/i386/epel-release-5-4.noarch.rpm yum install python26 git clone git://github.com/devstructure/blueprint.git cd blueprint && make && sudo make install PYTHON=/usr/bin/python26
This installs Python 2.6 from EPEL side-by-side with Python 2.4 and so won't break yum.
With a package manager
DevStructure maintains Debian packages and Python eggs for Blueprint. See Installing with a package manager on the wiki.
The Blueprint tutorial works through creating and deploying a simple web application via Blueprint.
Blueprint is BSD-licensed.
