Fabric is a simple pythonic remote deployment tool.
It is designed to upload files to, and run shell commands on, a number of servers in parallel or serially. These commands are grouped in tasks (regular python functions) and specified in a ‘fabfile’.
It is a bit like a dumbed down Capistrano, except it’s in Python, dosn’t expect you to be deploying Rails applications, and the ‘put’ command works.
Unlike Capistrano, Fabric want’s to stay small, light, easy to change and not bound to any specific framework.
