Deployment of CLLD apps

The ‘clldfabric’ package provides functionality to ease the deployment of CLLD apps. The functionality is implemented as fabric tasks.


  • The target platform assumed by these tasks is Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.
  • Source code is transferred to the machines by cloning the respective github repositories.
  • Apps are run by gunicorn, monitored by supervisor, behind nginx as transparent proxy.
  • PostgreSQL is used as database.


We use fabric to automate deployment and other tasks which have to be executed on remote hosts.
