Powerful iPXE Generation Service

Project description

Steel PIGS is a python flask app that is middleware which can be configured to talk to remote inventory systems to pull data from them to build custom ipxe scripts. This code is based on work done by Major Hayden, and Antony Messerli on a project called miniplop.


To install steel_pigs simply use pip like so

pip install steel_pigs

Getting Started

Once steel_pigs is installed you need to create your own custom plugins. For help doing that see the wiki. Once you have your plugins built, installed, and have steel_pigs configured to use them simply use your favorite wsgi server to server the app. Using gunicorn you might do something like this

gunicorn steel_pigs.webapp:app

Next you would configure something like nginx to proxy the content. You could also use mod_wsgi in Apache HTTPD.


To contribute to steel-pigs please follow the fork, branch, pull request work flow. Tests are required where applicable. All code should follow pep8 standards, and must support python 2.7 When opening a pull request please do so against the development branch.

If you wish to contribute a plugin please use the steel_pigs_plugins project on GitHub.
