django-ssheepdog is a public ssh key management tool for teams of programmers

Project Description

django-ssheepdog is a public ssh key management tool for teams of programmers. Different people need different privileges to different servers. Ssheepdog allows you to specify these relationships and then sync the keys to the appropriate servers.


django-ssheepdog is distributed as a pluggable django app. The meat of the application is contained in the ssheepdog directory. The src directory contains a django project that uses the app.

When you are developing, you should install ssheepdog into your virtual environment with the following command:

$ python develop

This will create a symlink between the source and the environment’s site packages. Once the link is created, you can edit the source code in ssheepdog/ as usual.


To install the latest version, run:

$ pip install -e git+git://

Then, add ssheepdog` to your ``INSTALLED_APPS and add the ssheepdog.urls to your project’s urls.

Install from PyPI:

$ pip install django-ssheepdog


Latest documentation can be found on ReadTheDocs.

Testing vagrant VM

We have provided a vagrant VM configuration for testing the ssh syncing.

Boot it up:

$ vagrant up

Log in:

$ ssh ssheepdog@ -p 2222 -i deploy/cookbooks/ssheepdog/files/default/id_rsa
