deployfish has commands for managing the whole lifecycle of your application:

  • Safely and easily create, update, destroy and restart ECS services
  • Safely and easily create, update, run, schedule and unschedule ECS tasks
  • Extensive support for ECS related services like load balancing, application autoscaling and service discovery
  • Easily scale the number of containers in your service, optionally scaling its associated autoscaling group at the same time
  • Manage multiple environments for your task or service (test, qa, prod, etc.) in multiple AWS accounts.
  • Uses AWS Parameter Store for secrets for your containers
  • View the configuration and status of running ECS services
  • Run a one-off command related to your service
  • Easily exec through your VPC bastion host into your running containers, or ssh into a ECS container machine in your cluster.
  • Setup SSH tunnels to the private AWS resources in VPC that your service uses so that you can connect to them from your work machine.
  • Extensible! Add additional functionality through custom deployfish modules.
  • Works great in CodeBuild steps in a CodePipeline based CI/CD system!

Additionally, deployfish integrates with Terraform state files so that you can use the values of terraform outputs directly in your deployfish configurations.
