Project description

# A Factotum for Headless Factorio! A python manager to deploy and run headless factorio servers. By: Brian Ballsun-Stanton, Andrew Ardill, and James Zhao

Released under the GPL v3 License, 2016. No warranty of any kind, folks.

## Installation:

### On ubuntu 14.04/16.04:

`sudo apt update && sudo apt install python3-pip -y && echo /opt/factorio > $HOME/.factorioPath && sudo pip3 install factotum && factotum fulldeploy && source $HOME/.bashrc`

### On other systems:

`sudo pip3 install factotum`

## Usage:

  • factotum –help
    • This provides all Factory Factotum commands.
  • factotum COMMAND –help
    • This provides help for each Factory Factotum command.
  • factotum fulldeploy
    • Runs install, authenticate, newmap, setup.
  • factotum install
    • Installs factorio (default /opt/factorio, override with a new path in ~/.factorioPath)
  • factotum authenticate –username <Username>
    • Gets your authentication token from factorio servers so your password isn’t stored in plaintext.
  • factotum newmap
    • Generates a new map from a config file in FACTORIOHOME/config/mapsettings.json
  • factotum setup –servername “Server Name Here” –description “Server Description Here” –tag “Tag 1” –tag “Tag n”
    • Configures the settings.json file including setting a password of 4 diceware words.
  • factotum factorio start
    • This starts the factorio headless server in daemon mode with latest save.
  • factotum factorio stop
    • This asks the headless server to stop. Politely. It will take some time and will likely report failed.
  • factotum factorio status
    • This reports on the status of the server.
  • factotum rcon /help
    • This sends commands into an already running server started by factotum.
