A tool for deploying Django Web Apps to remote servers

Project description

Yurt: A Deployment Script powered by Ansible.

Last Updated: June 1st, 2016

Supported on Mac OSX 10.11 (El Capitan)

A collection of commands for generating a new Django project (running Python 3) and
deploying using Ansible to either a Vagrant or web host instance.

.. image::

- Vagrant
- Python 2.7

.. code-block:: shell

pip install yak-yurt
vagrant plugin install vagrant-vbguest


- Get HELP for a Yurt command
.. code-block:: shell

yurt deploy --help

- Create a Django project and a Vagrant VM instance

.. code-block:: shell

cd new_proj
yurt new_project (--git_repo=<git repo link>) (--vault)

- Adds a remote server target to the Django project

.. code-block:: shell

cd new_proj
yurt remote_server (--help)

- Deploys to a remote server target (must be inside the Django project git repo)

.. code-block:: shell

cd new_proj/project_repo
yurt deploy

- Setup a Yurt-started project (git ssh link required)

.. code-block:: shell

cd new_proj
yurt existing (--git_repo=<git repo link>)

- Create a JSON file with Vault credentials (experimental)

.. code-block:: shell

cd new_proj
yurt vault (--dest=<destination directory>)

Notes on Project Structure
- After running either ``yurt existing`` or ``yurt new_project`` inside an empty directory ("new_proj") this is the structure:

.. code-block:: shell

|_ Vagrantfile
|_ project_repo
|_ requirements.txt
|_ config
| |_ settings
| | |_
| | |_
| |
| |_
| |_
|_ orchestration
|_ env_vars
| |_ base.yml
| |_ vagrant.yml
|_ inventory
| |_ vagrant
|_ roles
| |_ {{ all the Ansible roles }}
|_ appservers.yml
|_ dbservers.yml
|_ site.yml
|_ vagrant.yml

Vagrant Notes
- Use the command ``vagrant ssh`` to SSH into the Vagrant VM
- On the Vagrant VM, the application code is in ``/server/<project_name>`` and the virtualenv is in ``/server/.virtualenvs/<project_name>``
- VM is provisioned with Ansible for the first time when calling ``vagrant up``
- Re-provisioning with Ansible can be called with ``vagrant provision``
