[WIP] Deploying to Wikimedia Labs

We are in the process of moving the IFTTT channel to a standalone service on Wikimedia Labs from tool labs. The new deployment process is explained here, and might evolve.

The staging server for dev(ifttt-dev channel) is setup at ifttt-staging-01.eqiad.wmflabs, the public endpoint is hosted at The prod server will be at ifttt-01.eqiad.wmflabs(ifttt prod channel), public endpoint is at

To create your own test instance, create an instance in the ifttt labs project, and apply the role::ifttt::staging puppet role to initialize the repo, and have necessary packages installed on the server. Add your host to the STAGES config in the fabfile.
