Micro Service Scaffold Generator and Toolkit

Project description

Youtiao is a project for Micro-Service scaffold generation and provides a set of related tools.


Youtiao requires python version >= 3.6.0. If you don’t have appropriate python version installed on your computer, we recommand use pyenv to prepare one.


From pypi:

pip install -U Youtiao

From source code:

git clone && cd Youtiao && python install


When you successfully installed youtiao in your python environment, type youtiao or youtiao —help in your console, you will see following outputs:

Usage: youtiao [OPTIONS] COMMAND [ARGS]...

  Micro Service Toolkit

  --help  Show this message and exit.

  build_image     Build docker image
  init            Generate Python service boilerplate
  protoc          Shortcut of grpc_tools.protoc to compile...
  rancher_deploy  Deploy using rancher (v1.6) API (v2.0 beta)

You can get detailed guide for each command if you type:

youtiao [command] --help

Project init

Create a new project by command:

youtiao init --language=python [directory]

A dialog will be launched for service name and service mode confirmation. If everything goes well, a project skeleton will be generated. The command will not generate any file under given directory path if the process is abort or any exception is raised.

Now available language and service templates:
