For a years I was using a custom created scripts to keep my dot files updated. I had a local repository in bazaar and a script which check differences between home dot files and files stored in the repository. This solutions works fine for years, but now I want to do some changes…
The first one is moving my dot files to git (and probably pushed them to github), and the second one is to create a hook for git to update my dot files. I known that there are a lot of similar solutions, one more complex, other more easy, but this is mine
Today I was released a new version of dtools. Distributed tools, aka dtools is a project written in bash coding to create a suite of programs to allow running different UNIX comamnds parallelly in a list of tagged hosts.
Fully written in bash, no third party software required (except ssh, obviously).
Based in module architecture, easy to extend.
Full integration with ssh.
Easy to group hosts by tags or search by regular expression.
Manage of ssh hosts
Parseable output, but human-readable
Thinking in system admin, no special development skills required to extend the software.

As usual, you can download the code from the project page, or if you wish you can download the code via git:
