Lightweight configuration management.

Getting Started

To start a wright IRB session, simply run:

$ bundle console

In order to create some resources using the wright DSL:

require 'wright'
extend Wright::DSL

foo_dir = directory '/tmp/foo'
fstab = symlink '/tmp/foo/fstab' do |s|
  s.to = '/etc/fstab'

puts File.directory? '/tmp/foo'
puts File.symlink? '/tmp/foo/fstab'


If you don't want to use the DSL:

require 'wright'

foo_dir = Wright::Resource::Directory.new('/tmp/foo')
fstab = Wright::Resource::Symlink.new('/tmp/foo/fstab')
fstab.to = '/etc/fstab'

puts File.directory? '/tmp/foo'
puts File.symlink? '/tmp/foo/fstab'



Since wright does not have any runtime dependencies apart from Ruby ≥1.9, it can safely be installed system-wide via rubygems:

sudo gem install wright

If you use a Debian-based GNU/Linux distribution such as Ubuntu, you can also install wright via the PPA sometimesfood/wright:

sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:sometimesfood/wright
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install wright

If you use a Debian-based distribution that is not Ubuntu, you have to update your apt sources manually before installing wright:

export DISTRO="$(lsb_release -sc)"
export PPA_LIST="sometimesfood-wright-${DISTRO}.list"
sudo sed -i "s/${DISTRO}/trusty/g" /etc/apt/sources.list.d/${PPA_LIST}


There is not too much useful documentation that is targeted towards users at the moment.

Run bundle exec yard to generate HTML docs for wright developers.


Contributions to wright are greatly appreciated. If you would like to contribute to wright, please have a look at the contribution guidelines.

To start hacking on wright, simply install the development dependencies via bundler:

  • bundle install --path .bundle
  • bundle exec rake test

All tests should pass.
