pypsh - cli for parallel ssh command execution on all known hosts that match a given regex.

Project description

To execute a command on a group of hosts matching a given regular expression:

pypsh cmd <hostregex> <cmd-to-execute>


pypsh cmd "role\d+\.customer\.your\.domain" "uptime"

Or to copy a given file to a group of hosts:

pypsh copy /tmp/here/myfile.txt "my\.domains\d+\.com" /tmp/remote/file.txt

The command or file copy operation will be executed on any host that is in the known_hosts file and matches the given regular expression.


Pypsh can be installed using pip:

pip install pypsh


To work on pypsh checkout the git repository, create a virtual environment and install the dependencies:

git clone
cd pypsh
mkvirtualenv pypsh
pip install -r requirements.txt

Sometimes it is useful to point the pypsh command to the local development branch:

pip install --upgrade --force-reinstall --editable .

But usually it is sufficient to invoke it like this:

python pypsh/ {cmd,copy} ...
