CLI for managing system configs and dot-profiles can be used for initializations, deployments and updates on remotes or localhost


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'homeseed'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install homeseed


homeseed commands

$ homeseed
  homeseed exec [-e <command> or -f <files>] [-u <user>] [-p <has_password>] -s, --servers=SERVERS              # executes bash login session(s) on remote servers to run inline bash commands or bash ...
  homeseed help [COMMAND]                                                                                       # Describe available commands or one specific command
  homeseed plant [-u <user>] [-p <has_password>] [-c <clean>] [--url <url>] -s, --servers=SERVERS               # installs homeshick and then dot profile based on localhost $HOME/.homeseed.yml or url...
  homeseed update [-u <user>] [-p <has_password>] [--url <url>] -s, --servers=SERVERS                           # updates dot profile based on localhost $HOME/.homeseed.yml or url with yml commands
  homeseed upload [-f <upload_files>] [-r <remote_path>] [-u <user>] [-p <has_password>] -s, --servers=SERVERS  # scp uploads file(s) to remote servers

to distribute and install your dot profile(s) on multiple of servers run

$ homeseed plant -s blackberry,blueberry,raspberry

this uses your user's local $HOME/.homeseed.yml by default; a url can be given instead to override this

$ homeseed plant -s pom --url 'i_am_a_homeseed.yml_file'

localhost can be specified as the target for system initialization

$ homeseed exec -s localhost --url 'setup_bluez_mupen_and_such.yml'

to update run; uses $HOME/.homeseed.yml by default (same url based overrides apply here as well)

$ homeseed update -s soho

localhost can be specified here as well

$ homeseed update -s localhost

ex user config ($HOME/.homeseed.yml)
