Similar to chopstick
Strikingly similar! Their execution model is a little different, but the featureset is pretty close. Thanks for the link
This is extremely cool! I’ve done a lot of work in scientific computing and devopsy stuff (both of which are domains in which this useful), so I’ve been excited about systems for executing code (particularly Python) on remote hosts for a long time, starting with a lot of exploration/work on IPython parallel, eventually moving more into systems like Salt and Ansible. Will definitely check this out. I sadly don’t have the time to hack on it much right now, but definitely keep posting updates here @dw!
You probably know about this already, but Fabric is useful for this sort of thing, and it’s Python, too.
Edit: The article covers Fabric, of course. Should have read it fully before I posted :)
