        @argument --sth, help=dowhat
        print('do %s' % args.sth)
  • Document generator:

    stack doc
  • ad-hoc git baseed deployment:

    on remote production server:

    stack serve

    on local dev environment:

    git add remote production git://<your remote ip>:30976/.git
    git checkout release/<your release branch>
    git push production HEAD

Work with stackfile

  • stackfile

    stackfile is a local config file like makefile/gruntfile/glupfile/etc., the stack-cli will automacily load in the stackfile when boot.

  • decorators

    For the newest version of stack-cli, there is two useful decorators: @as_command and @wsh_command, the first decorator allows function be called as stack command, and the wsh_command decorator can map a local command function to a remote callable function. Which means that you can call the command via stack wsh or restful api of stack cli
