Multi-server automation and deployment toolkit

Project Description

Bolt lets you easily automate sysadmin tasks like deployment. You can use it to manage multi-server setups over SSH or even as a build tool. To use, simply create a boltfile.py with your tasks, e.g.

from bolt.api import *

@task
def deploy():
    """publish the latest version of the app"""

    with cd('/var/www/mysite.com'):
        run('git remote update')
        run('git checkout origin/master')

    sudo("/etc/init.d/apache2 graceful")

And then, run the tasks from the command line, e.g.

$ bolt deploy

Bolt was initially developed as a fork of Fabric, but has since been extracted as a standalone tool without any of the historic baggage of the Fabric APIs.

Documentation

Bolt doesn’t currently have any docs, but you can look at the introduction to the Fabric fork for details of how to use most of its features. Simply replace the references to fab and fabric with bolt:
