Run command in the context same as application

Project description

Run your commands in your application context. Let’s eliminate cd and source in your crontab!


  • Supports Python 2.7 only

We’ll be supporting 3.5 soon.


$ pip install --user appdo
(venv)$ pip install appdo


First, write your config file ~/.appdo.conf in TOML.

cd = "~/work/myapp"
source = ["/etc/profile", "~/.bash_profile"]
prefix = "bundle exec"

PAGER    = "cat"
RACK_ENV = "staging"

Then run appdo command. The commands will be executed in the config manner.

$ appdo rake -vT

Which is equivalent to:

$ cd ~/work/myapp
$ source /etc/profile
$ source ~/.bash_profile
$ PAGER=cat RACK_ENV=staging bundle exec rake -vT
