A simple system configuration framework

Project Description

Alnair

Alnair is a simple system configuration framework. And also are intended to be used in conjunction with the Fabric (https://github.com/fabric/fabric).

Requirement

  • Python 2.6 and later (but does not work in 3.x)

Installation

from pypi:

# using pip
% pip install -U alnair

# or using easy_install
% easy_install -U alnair

from source:

% python setup.py install

Basic usage

First, generate the recipes template set by following command:

% alnair generate template archlinux

In this example, distribution name using archlinux. recipes/archlinux/common.py directories and file are created to current directory by this command. Also “g” as an alias for the generate command has been defined. The following command is same meaning as above:

% alnair g template archlinux

Next, edit install_command variable in common.py for the target distribution:

# common.py
install_command = 'pacman -Sy'

Next, generate recipe template for package setup by following command:

% alnair g recipe python

python.py file is created on recipes/archlinux/ directory by this command. In fact, directories where you want to create the files are recipes/*/.

Finally, edit python.py for more settings if necessary and setup to the server by following command:

% alnair setup archlinux python

Using as a library

You can use the following code instead of “alnair setup archlinux python” command:

from alnair import Distribution

distname = 'archlinux'
with Distribution(distname) as dist:
    dist.setup('python')
