This is a set of reusable fabric tasks. It uses the new-style task system of fabric >= 1.2


  • Add dploi-fabric to your buildout environment (preferably in development_local.cfg, the servers have no use for it).

  • Create a as normal.

  • Pick and choose the modules and import them in the, e.g.:

    from fabric.decorators import task
    from dploi_fabric.db import pg # if project uses mysql, import "mysql" instead
    from dploi_fabric import supervisor, nginx
    from dploi_fabric import git, utils, buildout, south, django_utils, project
    from dploi_fabric.conf import load_settings
    def dev():
    def stage():
    def live():
    def deploy():
  • in the project root, create a file following this template:

    project_name = 'awesome_new_website'
    settings = {
        'dev': {
            'hosts': [''],
            'autostart': True,
            'path': '/home/awesome_new_website-dev/app/',
            'user': 'awesome_new_website-dev',
            'buildout_cfg': 'server_dev.cfg',
            'repo': '',
            'branch': 'master',
            'backup_dir': '/home/awesome_new_website-dev/tmp/', # Used for mysql/psql dumps
            'db_name': 'awesome_new_website-dev',
            'db_username': 'awesome_new_website-dev',
            'domains': ['', ''],
            'domains_redirect': [
                {'domain': '', 'destination_domain': ''},
            'ssl': True,
            'ssl_key_path': '../config/ssl.key', # This must be uploaded manually, possibly by a task in the future
            'ssl_cert_path': '../config/ssl.crt', # This must be uploaded manually, possibly by a task in the future
            'basic_auth': False,
            'basic_auth_path': '../config/htpasswd', # This must be uploaded manually, possibly by a task in the future

    add settings for stage/live as needed.
