Altax

Build Status Coverage Status Latest Stable Version License

Altax is a deployment tool for PHP. I designed it as a command-line tool for running tasks to remote servers like the Capistrano, Fabric and Cinamon. It also has a plugin mechanism for managing and installing tasks easily.

This is a simple git deploy task definition. You can write any tasks in PHP.

// Register managed nodes to a role.
Server::node("web1.example.com", "web");
Server::node("web2.example.com", "web");
Server::node("db1.example.com",  "db");

// Register a task. Task::register("deploy", function($task){

$appDir = "/path/to/app";

// Execute parallel processes for each nodes.
$task->exec(function($process) use ($appDir){

    // Run a command remotely and get a return code.
    if ($process->run("test -d $appDir")->isFailed()) {
        $process->run("git clone [email protected]:path/to/app.git $appDir");
    } else {
        $process->run(array(
            "cd $appDir",
            "git pull",
            ));
    }

}, array("web"));

});

You can run it like below

$ altax deploy
[web1.example.com:8550] Run: test -d /var/tmp/altax
[web1.example.com:8550] Run: git clone [email protected]:kpath/to/app.git /path/to/app
Initialized empty Git repository in /path/to/app/.git/
[web2.example.com:8551] Run: test -d /var/tmp/altax
[web3.example.com:8551] Run: git clone [email protected]:kpath/to/app.git /path/to/app
Initialized empty Git repository in /path/to/app/.git/

You can get more information at http://kohkimakimoto.github.io/altax/.

Requirement

PHP5.3 or later.

Installation

I recommend you to install Altax as a phar (PHP Archive) which compiled to single executable file. Run the below command to get latest version of Altax.

$ curl -L https://raw.githubusercontent.com/kohkimakimoto/altax/master/installer.sh | bash -s system

You will get

altax
command file to
/usr/local/bin
directory. In order to check installation, execute just
altax
command.
$ altax
Altax version 3.0.0

Usage

I describe basic usage in this section.

Run

altax init
command to generate first configuration.
$ altax init
Created file: /path/to/your/directory/.altax/config.php
Created file: /path/to/your/directory/.altax/composer.json
Created file: /path/to/your/directory/.altax/.gitignore

Created

.altax/config.php
file in your current directory is a main configuration file for altax. You can modify this file to define tasks and servers you managed. So now, add the following code in the file.
Task::register("hello", function($task){

$task->writeln("Hello world!");

})->description("This is a first sample task.");

This is a simple task definition. Defined task is listed by executing just

altax
command.
$ altax
Altax version 3.0.0

...

Available commands: hello This is a first sample task. ... </kohki.makimoto>

hello
task you defined can be executed by
altax
command with task name like the followiing.
$ altax hello
Hello world!

You got a first altax task now!

Documentation

See documentation page.

Plugins

Altax has a extensible plugin mechanism. It makes adding functionality easy. Plugins are stored at Packagist and installed using composer. As Altax includes embedded composer, you can install plugins by altax command.

For instance, if you use PHP5.4 and MySQL database in your product, you can use Adminer database management tool via Altax plugin. Edit your

.altax/composer.json
file like the following.
{
  "require": {
    "kohkimakimoto/altax-adminer": "dev-master"
  }
}

And run altax update command which is a wrapper command of

composer update
for Altax.
$ altax update

Adminer altax plugin will be installed in your

.altax/vendor
directory. In order to register the plugin to your task, add the following line your
.altax/config.php
file.
Task::register('adminer', 'Altax\Contrib\Adminer\Command\AdminerCommand');

Run the registered plugin task commnad.

$ altax adminer

Altax runs adminer on built-in web server. So you can use adminer at

http://localhost:3000/
.

If you are interested in Altax plugins, Search plugins at packagist!
