stargate

Remote deployment over Redis pubsub

install

npm install -g stargate

how it works

The stargate CLI allows your to push deployments and execute commands on remote servers. It reads from a file in your current working directory, .stargate, which contains configuation to connect to a Redis server and information about the git repository.

On each remote server, a drone must be running - listening to the Redis server for commands. On your local machine, running stargate will connect to this Redis server and issue said commands.

CLI usage

After installing globalling or running npm link from a cloned stargate repo, you have access to the stargate executable, aliased to sg.

$ sg -h
Usage: sg command options

Commands:
  init        Initialize a .stargate file
  drone       Start a new drone
  ls          List running drones
  push        Deploy the current project
  exec        Execute a command on remote servers

Options:
  -v, --verbose  Print debug information
  -h, --help     Display this message

On your remote machines, inside a directory with a .stargate configuation file:

sg drone

In your working directory:

sg push

will execute the script path in your .stargate file

.stargate should have this structure:

exports.myProject = {
  redis: {
    host: 'myproject.com'
    port: 6379,
    auth: 'superSecretPassword'
  },
  script: 'executableFile.sh'
}

...which is autmatically generated by

sg init

future

  • .stargaterc for use anywhere on the file system
  • specific SHA deployment
  • git branch specification
