"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."

The Tidelift Subscription
manages your dependencies, including Fabricfor you.
How do we do it?

subscription-icon-1
We provide the tools you need to continuously catalog and understand the open source software that your application depends on.
subscription-icon-2
We partner with and pay the open source community maintainers of the exact packages you use, to ensure they meet the standards you require.
subscription-icon-3
We address issues proactively, not only scanning for new security, licensing, and maintenance issues, but also working with our participating open source maintainers to resolve them on your behalf.
subscription-icon-4
We help you measure and improve your open source dependencies' health—which improves your app’s health—and give you a short list of high-impact steps your team can take to improve them even more.
subscription-icon-5
We add commercial assurances that don't come for free with open source packages, like intellectual property indemnification and support under a service level agreement. You expect these guarantees from proprietary software, and you should get them when using open source as well.

The end result? All of the capabilities you expect from commercial-grade software, for the full breadth of open source you use. That means less time grappling with esoteric open source trivia, and more time building your own applications—and your business.

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.

By paying the maintainers for their work, you help ensure they’ll have the time and motivation to keep their creations well maintained. And you just may make the world a little bit nicer place, too.
