Inertia is the command line interface that helps you set up your remote for continuous deployment and allows you to manage your deployment through configuration options and various commands.
This document contains basic usage instructions, but a new usage guide is also available here: https://inertia.ubclaunchpad.com/
Inertia can be installed in several ways:
# Mac users brew install ubclaunchpad/tap/inertia # Windows users scoop bucket add ubclaunchpad https://github.com/ubclaunchpad/scoop-bucket scoop install inertia
Users of other platforms can install the Inertia CLI from the Releases page, found here: https://github.com/ubclaunchpad/inertia/releases/latest
To help with usage, most relevant documentation can be seen by using the --help flag on any command:
inertia --help inertia init --help inertia [remote] up --help
Documentation can also be triggered by simply entering a command without the prerequisite arguments or additional commands:
inertia remote # documentation about remote configuration
Inertia has two "core" sets of commands - one that primarily handles local configuration, and one that allows you to control your remote VPS instances and their associated deployments.
For local configuration, most commands will build off of the root "inertia ..." command. For example, a typical set of commands to set up a project might look like:
inertia init # initiates Inertia configuration inertia remote add my_cloud # adds configuration for a remote VPS instance
The other set of commands are based on a remote VPS configuration, and the available commands can be seen by running:
inertia [remote] --help
In the previous example, the next steps to set up a deployment might be:
inertia my_cloud init # bootstraps remote and installs Inertia daemon inertia my_cloud up # deploys your project
Some of these commands offer a --stream flag that allows you to view realtime log feedback from the daemon.
