"I believe Tidelift's model has a lot of promise. I signed up because I want to help them prove the system works and to give feedback from the perspective of a multi-package maintainer."

About Fabric

Fabric is a pypi library that is part of Tidelift Subscription.

Fabric is a high level Python (2.7, 3.4+) library designed to execute shell commands remotely over SSH, yielding useful Python objects in return.

It builds on top of Invoke (subprocess command execution and command-line features) and Paramiko (SSH protocol implementation), extending their APIs to complement one another and provide additional functionality.

Core use cases for Fabric include (but are not limited to):

  • Single commands on individual hosts
  • Single commands across multiple hosts (via varying methodologies: serial, parallel, etc).
  • Python code blocks (functions/methods) targeted at individual connections.

Fabric is available via the PyPI package manager.
