Dreadnot was heavily inspired by Etsy's Deployinator.

In the configuration used by Rackspace Cloud Monitoring, a deployment looks something like:
Imporantly, Dreadnot knows nothing about the hosts to which it is deploying - if it did, we would have to modify our Dreadnot configuration every time we added or removed a machine from our environment. Instead, we rely on chef (although anything that knows about your servers will work) to give us an up-to-date list of all hosts in a given region. In smaller deployments it might be suitable to hardcode a list of hosts.
Does Dreanot support SVN?
Dreanot supports Node.js - you can use any technology or topology that suits you, as long as you can find a library for it.
npm install dreadnot -g
Dreadnot takes a number of options on the command line. The defaults are:
dreadnot -c ./local_settings.js -s ./stacks -p 8000
This will start dreadnot with the specified config file and stack directories, listening on port 8000.
