Kite is a CLI for scaffolding and managing devops modules The main purpose is templating of various tools for devops around terraform, bosh, ansible. Currently Kite supports modular stacks(Kite modules) on both AWS and GCP.
We plan in adding community stack using a simple template repository structure.
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install kite
To start using kite for bootstraping your infrastructure
follow the steps below.
[Note] Most kite commands can be referred by their first letter(for example
kite generate environment test is the same as
kite g e test)
Create your Infrastructure as Code base repository
Create a new kite project using:
$ kite new PROJECT_NAME
Generate an environment(e.g. development/test/production)
Kite environments are separated workspaces with their own credentials, variables and modules.
Generate an environment
$ kite generate environment *env_name* --provider=aws|gcp
If you want to change the credentials for an environment, edit
config/cloud.yml and regenerate environment with the same command.
Now the environment should be generated at
Add a module to your environment
To add a Kite module to your environment, you should first initialize it. It's recommended to use specific module versions/tags(master branch would be used by default):
kite module init https://url.for/your/module --env *env_name* --version *x.y.z/x-y-stable*
This should clone module's source files into
modules/*module_name* and create a
vars.*module_name*.yml file with all variables needed by the module.
vars.*module_name*.yml with correct values and render the module:
kite module render modules/*module_name* --env *env_name*
Apply Terraform configuration from the environment
Set your default gcloud credentials using
gcloud auth application-default login
kite terraform init kite terraform apply --env *env_name*
To list all Kite commands, use
$> kite help
After checking out the repo, run
bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run
rake spec to run the tests. You can also run
bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.
To install this gem onto your local machine, run
bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in
version.rb, and then run
bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the
.gem file to rubygems.org.
To use resource scripts locally, set env variable
$ ruby -Ilib ./bin/concourse/in
