You should be able to to get an idea on the different helpers Fabliip provides by browsing the source code, but here's a minimal example that will allow you to easily enable/disable the maintenance mode on a Drupal site:
from fabric.api import env, task from fabliip import drupal @task def prod(): env.project_root = '/var/www/mysite' env.drupal_root = os.path.join(env.project_root, 'src') env.hosts = ['yourhost.com'] @task def enable_maintenance_mode(): drupal.set_maintenance_mode(True)
You should now be able to call
fab prod enable_maintenance_mode to enable
the maintenance mode on your prod instance.
env.project_root variable is important here because it's needed by the
drupal module. Please refer to the docs of any module you use to check if
there's any env variable that must be defined.
