A web-based parallel SSH console for managing multiple linux servers.

Do you have too many servers to manage manually, but not big enough for puppet/chef? Want an interactive feel while still deduplicating effort across 3-10 servers? Inspired by commando.io, this is a commando.io alternative with the following features:

=FEATURES=

  • Add servers by password or keypair authentication
  • Host the control server locally to avoid trusting a third party
  • Arrange servers into groups (e.g. all web servers, all database servers, ...)
  • Supports running commands in parallel
  • Response streams back in realtime over websockets
  • Run any #! script remotely (bash, php, node, python, ...)
  • Syntax highlighting text editor (thanks Codemirror!)

=USAGE=

  • Install from npm (npm install opencommandio)
  • Configure servers.js as per inline documentation
  • Run the server (node ./core.js)
  • Browse to localhost:8081 and enjoy
  • Optional: Protect the server by nginx reverse proxy with http authentication, or similar
