Deis Client

The Deis client is a Python CLI that issues API calls to a private Deis controller, providing a Heroku-inspired PaaS workflow.

What is Deis?

Deis is an open source PaaS that makes it easy to deploy and scale containers to host applications, databases, middleware and other services. Deis leverages Docker, CoreOS and Heroku Buildpacks to provide a private PaaS that is lightweight and flexible.

Deis comes with out-of-the-box support for Ruby, Python, Node.js, Java, Clojure, Scala, Play, PHP, Perl, Dart and Go. However, Deis can deploy anything using Docker images or Heroku Buildpacks. Deis is designed to work with any cloud provider. Currently Amazon Web Services, Azure, DigitalOcean, Google Compute Engine, Linode, OpenStack, and bare metal deployments are supported.

Why Deis?

Deploy anything

Deploy a wide range of languages and frameworks with a simple git push using Heroku Buildpacks or Dockerfiles.

Control everything

Choose your hosting provider configuration. Define a cluster to meet your own needs. Retain full root access to every node. Manage your platform with a private Deis controller.

Scale effortlessly

Add nodes automatically and scale containers with a single command. Smart scheduling, container balancing and proxy reconfiguration are completely automated.

100% Open Source

Free, transparent and easily customized. Join the open-source PaaS and DevOps community by using Deis and complimentary projects like Docker, CoreOS and Heroku Buildpacks.

Get Started

  1. Install the Client:

Your Deis client should match your server’s version. For developers, one way to ensure this is to use Python 2.7 to install requirements and then run client/ in the Deis code repository. Then make a symlink or shell alias for deis to ensure it is found in your $PATH:

$ make -C client/ install
$ sudo ln -fs $(pwd)/client/ /usr/local/bin/deis
$ deis
Usage: deis <command> [<args>...]

If you don’t have Python 2.7, install the latest deis binary executable for Linux or Mac OS X with this command:

$ curl -sSL | sh

The installer puts deis in your current directory, but you should move it somewhere in your $PATH.
