| tl;dr | A web interface for fabric deployments.

Fabric Bolt is a Python/Django project that allows you to deploy code stored in source control (a project) to a target server (host). Fabric Bolt provides convenient web interfaces to configure both the projects and the hosts. Additionally, deployment history and logs are stored so that you know who, what, where, when, and why something was deployed.

These steps are designed to get you rolling quickly, but more complete install/setup information is provided in our documentation <http://fabric-bolt.readthedocs.org/en/latest/>_.

  1. Install::

    pip install fabric-bolt

  2. Initialize settings file. (To specify file location, enter as the second argument.)::

    fabric-bolt init [~/.fabric-bolt/settings.py]

  3. Modify generated settings file to enter database settings.

  4. Migrate db::

    fabric-bolt migrate

  5. Create admin user, then follow the prompts to create an email and password::

    fabric-bolt [--config=~/.fabric-bolt/settings.py] createsuperuser

  6. Run::

    fabric-bolt runserver


If you have created a settings file at a different location than the default, you can use the --config option on any command (besides the init command) to specify the custom file path. Alternatively, you can set an env variable: FABRIC_BOLT_CONF.
