Lightweight configuration management.

Getting Started

Performing simple administrative tasks with wright is easy.

#!/usr/bin/env wright

package 'sudo'

file '/etc/sudoers.d/env_keep-editor',
     content: "Defaults env_keep += EDITOR\n",
     owner:   'root:root',
     mode:    '440'

Scripts can also be run directly from the shell.

wright -e "package 'tmux'"

If you would rather see the effects of running a wright script first, use the dry-run option:

wright --dry-run -e "package 'tmux'"

For a list of command-line parameters, see the manpage. For a more in-depth list of tasks you can perform using wright, check the resource list.
