Kingpin: Deployment Automation Engine

Kingpin: the chief element of any system, plan, or the like.

Kingpin provides 3 main functions:

  • API Abstraction - Job instructions are provided to Kingpin via a JSON based DSL (read below). The schema is strict and consistent from one action to another.
  • Automation Engine - Kingpin leverages python’s tornado engine.
  • Parallel Execution - Aside from non-blocking network IO, Kingpin can execute any action in parallel with another. (Read group.Async below)
