Data Accross Multiple Environments

Lets say you have an app that you wish to deploy in two environments: staging and production, with the dev VM as the default. A good layout for this would be:

  • deploy.py
  • inventories/production.py - production inventory
  • inventories/staging.py - staging inventory
  • group_data/all.py - shared data
  • group_data/production.py - production data
  • group_data/staging.py - staging data

The “all” group data contains any shared info and defaults:

# group_data/all.py

env = 'dev'
git_repo = 'https://github.com/Fizzadar/pyinfra'

And the production/staging data describe the differences:

# group_data/production.py

env = 'production'
git_branch = 'master'
# group_data/staging.py

env = 'staging'
git_branch = 'develop'
