Getting Started#

What is BitOps?#

There are 2 components to BitOps. First, we have an Operations Repository (OpsRepo) where we store the code for our various tools. The second part is the BitOps Docker container that you can run to automate the deployment of the code in our OpsRepo. Now with a single command, you can deploy infrastructure and software.

The second part of BitOps is a boilerplate docker image for DevOps work. When you mount an Operations Repository to a BitOps image's /opt/bitops_deployment directory, BitOps will:

  • Auto-detect any configuration belonging to one of its supported tools
  • Loop through each tool and
    • Run any pre-execute hooks
    • Read in yaml configuration
    • Execute the tool
    • Run any post-execute hooks

Configure BitOps#

BitOps is configured in 4 steps:

  1. Create an Operations Repository
  2. Select your environment
  3. Configure access to your cloud provider
  4. Configure how you want your deployment tools to execute

See configuration

Run BitOps#

BitOps is packaged as a docker image and is available on docker hub.
