bridgy

Image PyPI version (WIP/beta)

TL;DR: bridgy = ssh + tmux + sshfs + cloud inventory search

Just get me to my ec2 box with a simple search. Multiple matches? Just ssh into all matching instances via tmux.

Image

Features:

  • Custom inventory sources:
    • AWS (supports matching by tag, dns, or instance-id)
    • GCP
    • New Relic
    • CSV
    • Ansible inventory
  • Search against multiple inventory sources simultaneously
  • Connect to inventory sources via a bastion/jumpbox
  • Fuzzy search against the inventory
  • Prompt for single/multi selection for matched hosts in inventory
  • Open multiple ssh connections via tmux (splits or tabs)
  • Configure custom tmux layouts (via config)
  • Seamless connection via bastion (via config)
  • Setup sshfs mount to a remote dir
  • Run custom command on login (via config)
  • Run arbitrary ansible playbooks
  • Push / pull files (via ansible fetch/copy task)
  • Ssh tunnel to hosts
  • ECS support (exec to container, currently only via new relic inventory)
  • Python3 support :)

(Want a feature? Just create an issue describing it)

Installing

Linux

pip install --user bridgy

# optionally support sshing into multiple systems at once
sudo apt install tmux

# optionally support remote mounts
sudo apt install sshfs

# put this into your ~/.bashrc (pip install --user does not put bins in the 'right' spot for everyone: https://github.com/pypa/pip/issues/3813)
export PATH=${HOME}/.local/bin:$PATH

Note: you may still need to add bridgy to your path!

OSX

sudo easy_install pip
pip install --user bridgy --ignore-installed six

# optionally support sshing into multiple systems at once
brew install tmux

# optionally support remote mounts
brew cask install osxfuse
brew install sshfs

# put this into your ~/.bash_profile (pip install --user does not put bins in the 'right' spot for everyone: https://github.com/pypa/pip/issues/3813)
export PATH=${HOME}/.local/bin:$PATH

Windows

Getting started

After installing, create a configuration file by running

$ bridgy init

This will create a default ~/.bridgy/config.yml file for you. From there you need to configure inventory sources and other options:

config-schema: 2
inventory:
  source:

    - type: csv
      name: on-site servers
      # CSV files are placed in ~/.bridgy/inventory/csv
      file: somefile.csv
      # requires at least name and address
      fields: name, address

    # Inventory parameters to support querying AWS using boto profiles
    - type: aws
      name: test
      profile: a-boto-profile-name
      region: us-west-2


# define ssh behavior and preferences
ssh:
  user: awesome-user
  options: -C -o ServerAliveInterval=255
  command: sudo -i su - another-user -s /bin/bash
  tmux: false

Now you can ssh into a system referenced from the given inventory sources:

# without tmux
$ bridgy ssh someserver

# with tmux (or set the ssh.tmux=true config option to always use tmux)
$ bridgy ssh -t someserver

That's just to get you started, there is plenty more you can do though!

Have a special multi-pane tmux layout for every system you login to? Drop it in the config, reference it by name:

tmux:
  layout:
    logger:
      - cmd: split-window -h
      - cmd: split-window -h
      - cmd: split-window -v
        run: tail -f /var/log/messages
      - cmd: set-window-option synchronize-panes on

then...

$ bridgy ssh -tl logger awesomebox

Want to remotely mount a dir from your ec2 instance over ssh locally?

$ bridgy mount awesomebox:/appdir
[?] What instances would you like to have mounted? (enter to select):
 > o dev-myawesomeboxname                   (10.10.60.220)
   o qa-myawesomeboxname                    (10.10.63.13)

Mounted dev-myawesomeboxname:/tmp at ~/.bridgy/mounts/dev-myawesomeboxname

Need to connect to your boxes via a jumpbox? Drop in your bastion connection information in the config:

bastion:
  user: some-username
  address: some-ip-or-host
  # optional ssh arguments
  options: -C -o ServerAliveInterval=255 -o FingerprintHash=sha256 -o TCPKeepAlive=yes -o ForwardAgent=yes -p 22222

Need a different bastion for a given inventory source, override it:

inventory:
  source:

    - type: csv
      name: on-site servers
      file: anawesome.csv
      fields: name, address
      # if you need to connect to aws hosts via a bastion, then
      # provide all connectivity info in each inventory item
      # (each inventory source bastion overrides the global bastion configuration)
      bastion:
        user: a-better-username
        address: someotherhost.com
        options: -C -o ServerAliveInterval=60

bastion:
  user: some-username
  address: some-ip-or-host.com
  options: -C -o ServerAliveInterval=255 -o FingerprintHash=sha256 -o TCPKeepAlive=yes -o ForwardAgent=yes -p 22222

The same override functionality is available for ssh options and pattern matchers:

inventory:
  source:

    - type: csv
      name: on-site servers
      include_pattern: .*meh_.*
      file: anawesome.csv
      fields: name, address
      ssh:
        user: a-better-username
        options: -C -o ServerAliveInterval=60

ssh:
  user: some-username
  options: -C -o ServerAliveInterval=255

Want to perform arbitrary tasks? Drop an ansible playbook in config, reference it by name (grab-files):

run:
  grab-files:
    - hosts: app-srv-13, dev-srv
      gather_facts: no
      tasks:
        - name: 'Get secrets.yml'
          fetch:
            src: /appdir/config/secrets.yml
            dest: /tmp/prefix-{{ inventory_hostname }}.secrets.yml
            fail_on_missing: yes
            flat: yes
        - name: 'Get production.rb'
          fetch:
            src: /appdir/config/environments/production.rb
            dest: /tmp/prefix-{{ inventory_hostname }}.production.rb
            fail_on_missing: yes
            flat: yes
        - name: 'Get database.yml'
          fetch:
            src: /appdir/config/database.yml
            dest: /tmp/prefix-{{ inventory_hostname }}.database.yml
            fail_on_missing: yes
            flat: yes

then...

$ bridgy run grab-files

  include_pattern: '.*qa.*'   # include only instances that match the given regex

  # in case you need to use this behind a proxy
