NAME

Rex - the friendly automation framework

DESCRIPTION

Rex is an automation framework that is friendly to any combinations of local and remote execution, push and pull style of management, or imperative and declarative approach.

Its flexibility makes it a great fit for many different use cases, but most commonly Rex is used to automate application deployment and data center infrastructure management tasks.

See Rex::Commands for a starting point of available built-in commands.

See rex for more information about how to use rex on the command line.
