Underwear Deploy Python Web Applications Easily ➶

20 May 2014

I still think the main barrier to widespread adoption of Python for web development is deployment. Can Underwear help?

Despite the advent of configuration management tools such as Puppet, Chef, Ansible, and Salt, it remains difficult to deploy a web application because you have to first learn one of those tools and then write scripts in the tool’s domain-specific language.

Underwear makes deploying to a traditional Linux server stack as easy as deploying to Heroku by providing a pre-packaged, easily configurable library. Deployments can be executed simply by installing Underwear with pip, specifying the IP addresses of the server(s) to deploy to, then running a couple of commands.

Great name, too!
