NAME

bundlewrap - Decentralized configuration management system with Python

SYNOPSIS

bundlewrap [-h] [-a] [-A] [-d] [-r DIRECTORY] [--version] {apply, debug, groups, hash, items, lock, metadata, nodes, plot, repo, run, stats, test, verify, zen} ...
 

DESCRIPTION

BundleWrap fills the gap between complex deployments using Chef or Puppet and old school system administration over SSH. You do not need to know any Python in order to use Bundlewrap, but you can easily extend your bundles using Python.
 
While most other config management systems rely on a client-server architecture, BundleWrap works off a repository cloned to your local machine.
 
It then automates the process of SSHing into your servers and making sure everything is configured the way it's supposed to be. You won't have to install anything on managed servers.
 

OPTIONAL ARGUMENTS

-h, --help show this help message and exit
-a, --add-host-keys
set StrictHostKeyChecking=no instead of yes for SSH
-A, --adhoc-nodes
treat unknown node names as adhoc 'virtual' nodes that receive configuration only through groups whose member_patterns match the node name given on the command line (which also has to be a resolvable hostname)
-d, --debug
print debugging info (implies -v)
-r DIRECTORY, --repo-path DIRECTORY
Look for repository at this path (defaults to current working directory)
--version
show program's version number and exit
 

SUBCOMMANDS:

use 'bw <subcommand> --help' for more info
apply
Applies the configuration defined in your repository to your nodes
debug
Start an interactive Python shell for this repository
groups
Lists groups in this repository (deprecated, use `bw nodes -a`)
hash
Shows a SHA1 hash that summarizes the entire configuration for this repo, node, group, or item.
items
List and preview items for a specific node
lock
Manage locks on nodes used to prevent collisions between BundleWrap users
metadata
View a JSON representation of a node's metadata
nodes
List all nodes in this repository
plot
Generates DOT output that can be piped into `dot -Tsvg -ooutput.svg`. The resulting output.svg can be viewed using most browsers.
repo
Various subcommands to manipulate your repository
run
Run a one-off command on a number of nodes
stats
Show some statistics about your repository
test
Test your repository for consistency (you can use this with a CI tool like Jenkins)
verify
Inspect the health or 'correctness' of a node without changing it
