Desplega

npm version Build Status Maintainability Test Coverage

Desplega is a general purpose modularizable automatization tool, you can automate virtually any process that you would prefer not to do manually form your terminal.

Install

npm i -g desplega

yarn global add desplega

Basic usage

After installing the global package just create a .desplega.yml file in the root of your project

#.desplega.yml
pipeline:
  title: Desplega
  remotes:
    Host1:
      host: <my host ip or domain>
      username: <host username>
      password: <password> #Do not include if you authenticate via public key
  steps:
    - type: remote
      title: Update system
      command: sudo apt-get update

Then just using our desplega cammand...

$ desplega

We will see something like this:

Demo

Yo can also create an equivalent json file

//.desplega.json
{
  "pipeline": {
    "title": "Desplega",
    "remotes": {
      "Host1": {
        "host": "<my host ip or domain>",
        "username": "<host username>",
        "password": "<password>"
      },
      "steps": [
        {
          "type": 'remote,
          "title": "Update system",
          "command": "sudo apt-get update"
        }
      ]
    }
  }
}

Or using a js file exporting an object, this is particularly useful to create richer pipelines, for example lets delete the oldest file in a directory.

// .desplega.js
 
function deleteOldestFile(context) {
  const files = context.history[0].stdout // We know the files are in the first command result
  const firstFile = files.split('\n')[0]
 
  return `rm ${firstFile}`
}
 
module.exports = {
  pipeline: {
    title: 'Desplega',
    steps: [
      {
        type: 'header'
        title: 'Delet oldest file'
      },
      {
        type: 'remote',
        title: 'List files',
        workingDirectory: '~/files',
        command: 'ls -t'
      },
      {
        type: 'remote',
        title: 'Delete oldest one',
        workingDirectory: '~/files',
        command: deleteOldestFile // We create dynamic commands using funtions
      }
    ]
  }
}

You can also run common JS async functions as steps by setting the step type as virtual and setting the asyncFunxtion property to an async function.

// .desplega.js
async function calculateHash(context, emit) {
  let hash = 0
 
  for (let i = 0; i < 1000; i++) {
    emit('stdout', `Calculating hash... iteration: ${i}`) // Virtual steps pass an emit function to stream data as stdout or stderr
    hash += Math.random() * 5
  }
 
  hash = Math.floor(hash)
 
  context.globals.hash = hash
}
 
module.exports = {
  pipeline: {
    title: 'Desplega',
    steps: [
      {
        type: 'virtual'
        title: 'Calculate hash',
        asyncFunction: calculateHash
      },
      {
        type: 'local'
        title: 'Create file',
        command: 'touch :hash:.txt' // Access setted globals with :<global>:
      }
    ]
  }
}

And finally we can also create pipelines asyncronously before running them by just exporting and async function in our desplega file, or by returning a promise.

// .desplega.js
 
module.exports async function generatePipeline() {
  const pipelineName = await forSomeAsyncCalls...
 
  return {
    pipeline: {
      title: pipelineName,
      steps: [...]
    }
  }
}

Naming convetions

You can name your desplega files with some subfix so you can run them independently. For example a desplega file to set up enviroment.

#.desplega.local.yml
pipeline:
  title: Desplega
  steps:
    - type: 'local'
      title: npm packages
      command: npm install

you can run this pipeline by using the desplega command and including the desplega file subfix as a command.

$ desplega local

Desplega folder hierarchy

You can also specify a directory in where you can place more complex projects in a folder called .desplega. The following folder structure will behave exactly as if we were using a simple desplega file.

.desplega
 |__ deploy.js

and we can running just by calling the desplega command.

$ desplega

Just as the naming convention example you can specify other pipeline files in the .desplega folder hierarchy.

.desplega
 |__ local.js

will run with

$ desplega local

Pipeline configurations

Pipelines can have more than one remote to send commands, you can even set different theme colors to show in the terminal pipeline UI.

pipeline:
  title: Pipeline Name
  remotes:
    Remote1: ...
    Remote2: ...
  remoteOptions:
    timeout": 1000
  localOptions":
    timeout": 2000
  virtualOptions":
    timeout": 3000
  stages: ...

title

Title of pipeline.

remotes

Here you write the configuration of every remote you want to send command to.

remoteOptions

You can configure all the remotes to behave with this options.

  • #### timeout [0] How much time to wait for a commant to finsih until fail it, default 0 means it does not time out

localOptions

You can configure how local commands will behave.

  • #### timeout [0] How much time to wait for a commant to finsih until fail it, default 0 means it does not time out

virtualOptions

You can configure how virtual commands will behave.

  • #### timeout [0] How much time to wait for a commant to finsih until fail it, default 0 means it does not time out

steps

List of steps to run.

Remote configuration

Set where and how the ssh connection should be done.

Remote:
  host: host.com
  port: 45
  username: user
  password: somepassword
  privateKey: 'key'
  keepaliveInterval: 666
  keepaliveCountMax: 777
}

host

IP or domain to stablish the ssh connection with.

port [22]

You can change the port used for the ssh connection.

username [root]

User name to use in the ssh connection.

password

If you don't authenticate using your public key, you can specify a pasword to use when stablish the ssh connection.

privateKey [home ssh key]

Contents of a ssh private key

keepaliveInterval [12000]

How much time in ms interval wait to send the alive signal.

keepaliveCountMax [5]

How many times check for alive signal before stop connection.

  timeout: 600

workingDirectory [~/]

Where this command shoud be run in the file tree.

asyncFunction

Async funxtion to execute

virtualOptions

Virtual options to override from the pipiline ones.

Modularization

Modularization can be achieved by writing pipelines using javascript by importing sub components that export stages or steps descriptions.

// .desplega.js
const step1 = require('./update-system')
const step2 = require('./install-ruby')
 
module.exports = {
  pipeline: {
    title: 'Desplega',
    steps: [step1, step2('2.2.9')]
  }
}
