RiotKit-Do (RKD)

Stop writing hacks in Makefile, use Python snippets for advanced usage, for the rest use simple few lines of Bash, share code between your projects using Python Packages.

RKD can be used on PRODUCTION, for development, for testing, to replace some of Bash scripts inside docker containers, and for many more, where Makefile was used.

Example use cases

  • Docker based production environment with multiple configuration files, procedures (see: Harbor project)
  • Database administrator workspace (importing dumps, creating new user accounts, plugging/unplugging databases)
  • Development environment (executing migrations, importing test database, splitting tests and running parallel)
  • On CI (prepare project to run on eg. Jenkins or Gitlab CI) - RKD is reproducible on local computer which makes inspection easier
  • Kubernetes/OKD deployment workspace (create shared YAML parts with JINJA2 between multiple environments and deploy from RKD)
  • Automate things like certificate regeneration on production server, RKD can generate any application configs using JINJA2
  • Installers (RKD has built-in commands for replacing lines in files, modifying .env files)

Quick start

# 1) via PIP
pip install rkd

# 2) Create project (will create a virtual env and commit files to GIT)
rkd :rkd:create-structure --commit

Getting started with RKD

The “Quick start” section will end up with a .rkd directory, a requirements.txt and

  1. Use to enter shell of your project, where RKD is installed with all dependencies
  2. Each time you install anything from pip in your project - add it to requirements.txt, you can install additional RKD tasks from pip
  3. In .rkd/makefile.yaml you can start adding your first tasks and imports
