Projects are homeless - give them a chance with a housing project...

Build Status

var council = require('housingproject');

// make a new housing project pointing to a JSON DB file
var project = council.openProject({
    file:'/tmp/towerblocks.json'
});

// get a list of the servers in our current project
var servers = project.listHomes();

// we are going to build some homes - get a contractor for the contract
var rackspace = council.contractor('rackspace', {
    username:'...',
    apiKey:'...'
});

// make a new home (with the default flavour)
project.buildHome({
    name:'Nice home with lots of Memory',
    contractor:rackspace
}, function(error, server){

    // we have built a new server and the housingproject has given us the keys
    var ipAddress = server.ip;
    var privateKey = server.privateKey;

    // the home is saved into the project and we are done!
});

Installation

$ npm install housingproject

Features

  • Creates an inventory of all your servers and manages it in a tree
  • Plug-and-play contractor library means you are not locked into one hosting provider
  • Automatically builds new servers and handles the security of SSH key access

Philosophy

Housing project exists to give orphan code the chance it deserves in life and to run
in a nice new home build just for it.

The project looks after what code is living in what home and can very quickly build
new homes.

It exists to make the job of cloud server provisioning simples.
