Python package to enables DevOps tasks in Jupyter Notebooks

Project description

[![PyPI version](](

### What is Rubix?
Python library that makes it easy to perform common DevOps tasks inside Jupyter Notebooks. E.g. plot Cloudwatch metrics, rollback your ECS/kubernetes app etc.

### When to use it?
While Rubix can be used in many contexts, it's most useful for writing incident runbooks/playbooks. On-call can read instructions & execute steps right from the Jupyter Notebook. I wrote more about the use case [here](

### Why Jupyter Notebook?
- Jupyter allows interleaving instructions and executable code. Ideal for quick incident response.
- Rich HTML output makes it easy to plot graphs, show deployment status etc.
- Low friction way to edit/view/execute notebooks in a browser.

# Documentation
Currently following integrations are supported in Rubix, would love to add more. Note that Jupyter Notebook supports executing [shell commands]( & [SQL queries]( out of the box.
* [Rubix](
* [Cloudwatch](
* [Elastic Container Service (ECS)](
* [Kubernetes](

# Installation
Rubix exclusively works with Jupyter notebooks. You can [install Jupyter]( locally or use [JupyterHub]( multi user setup. I also built built [nurtch]( (commercial) for easy multi user Jupyter setup.
* For your Jupyter/JupyterHub setup, just execute the following at the top of any notebook. Bang operator tells Jupyter to execute this as a terminal command.
!pip install rubix
* Rubix is pre-installed with [nurtch]( multi-user Jupyter setup.

# Usage
Complete documentation is linked above. Here are some usage examples.

### Plot Cloudwatch Metrics

### Rollback Service in ECS

# Contribute
If you see any problem, open an issue or send a pull request. For additional integrations open an issue with `Feature Request` tag & clearly describe the operations you want to perform. You can write to me at []( or DM me on [twitter](
