The deployer is a Python framework for automatic application deployment on Posix systems, usually through SSH. When set up, it can be called as a library, but usually, people use it through an interactive command line.

Some key features are:

  • Interactive execution of remote commands, locally, they will appear in a pseudo terminal (created with openpty), so that even editors like Vim or Emacs works fine when you run them on the remote end.
  • Reusability of all deployment code is a key point. It's as declarative as possible, but without loosing Python's power to express everything as dynamic as you'd like to. Deployment code is hierarchically structured, with inheritance where possible.
  • Parallel execution is easy when enabled, while keeping interaction with these remote processes possible through pseudoterminals. Every process gets his own terminal, either a new xterm or gnome-terminal window, a tmux pane, or whatever you'd like to.
  • Logging of your deployments. New loggers are easily pluggable into the system.
