# Introduction

Citellus is a framework to help with system configuration validation on either live system or any sort of snapshot of the filesystem.

Via execution of 'plugins' it reports status on each one execution against the system that gives you an idea on health status, actual problems or problems that will reveal themselves if no preventive action is taken.

Please if you have any idea on any improvements please do not hesitate to open an issue.

## Highlights
- Plugins written in your language of choice.
- Allows to dump output to json file to be processed by other tools.
- Allow to visualize html from json output.
- Check our sample at: [Citellus-www](
- Ansible playbook support.
- Save / restore default settings

## Installation

Check `README` above for detailed instructions outside os simple ones:
- Just clone the git repository and execute it from there 'or'
- use 'pipsi' or create a python virtual env to install package 'citellus'

- Give it a try running as 'root' on your system with: `./ -l -F"` so it will show `live execution` and only `Failed` tests.
