Modest INI-style administration (minimin) is a handful of administrative conventions expressed in INI-style configuration files and implemented using Fabric. Its goal is to help keep administration light, modular, and easy to reason about. Fabric executes remote tasks via SSH, and general system configuration is managed by Puppet.

minimin is not a configuration management system - it is a way to think about, and ease the pain of, incorporating management components into an existing environment.

minimin currently supports:

  • SSH-only, push-based Puppet configuration via role memebership
  • manual package installation
  • command aliases
