    Parallel-SSH is an asynchronous parallel SSH library designed to simplify large-scale automation. Uses the least resources and runs fastest among all Python SSH libraries. thenumberfourtytwo likes it because "all you need is a file containing all your ssh hosts—which in hindsight is quite similar to ansible, in its simplest form."

    Project mention: Web Interface for Starting Bash Scripts | | 2022-01-06

    first result of web search with post title shows Personally I use Jenkins.

  • trezor-agent

    Hardware-based SSH/PGP agent

    Project mention: TIL: Trezor-T works under WSL-2 (Linux on Windows) using usbipd-win | | 2022-01-12

    I'd been working with the trezor-gpg and trezor-ssh features recently, but found them difficult to configure in Windows. When I saw the WSL-2 article on usbipd, found everything worked great.

  • ssh-ldap-pubkey

    Utility to manage SSH public keys stored in LDAP.

    Project mention: What is the selfhosted project you're most proud of? | | 2021-05-05

    I'm running OpenLDAP and LL::NG, not as popular but covers both scenarios of simple auth and OIDC/SAML. Also using Kerberos with it for semi-auto login while at home. For SSH I'm using this script to pull keys from LDAP.

  • PyFiSync

    Python (+ rsync or rclone) based intelligent file sync with automatic backups and file move/delete tracking.

    Project mention: Two-Way Sync Client Recommendations? | | 2021-03-17

    The reason I ask is the best answer I can give is use my tool. I actually wrote two tools to do bona fide two-way sync with rclone. The first, PyFiSync was really written for SSH+rsync two-way sync but I later added local to rclone. However, it was more complex than needed for that and not idea. (rsync can do really stupid-efficient diff transfers which rclone cannot so I used to go out of my way to track moves and modifications)
