Fabric — Fabric v0.9 documentation
Trying to see what fabric is for.
It would be nice to be able to switch batch mode and user interaction mode dynamically. With expect/tk you have such a feature, but fabric doesn't offer one afaik.
So far, fabric seems better at simple automated batch processing than expect/tk is, but expect has a wider variety of features. So I'll see if there are tasks suitable for fabric/python.
