    CFEngine Community (by cfengine)

    I'm using rudder (https://www.rudder.io/), it's based on cfengine (https://cfengine.com/). But this is more enterprise ready, you'll be fine with lightweight ansible. Nice thing is, that rudder ensures compliance by periodically executing all defined rules on all endpoints.

  • quick

    A quick installer that install a few things needed on our machines (by Poli-Systems)

    https://github.com/Poli-Systems/quick During a time our script was public, it changed quite a lot since (like for ssh keys and DDOS protections) but I'll let you give a look at our really older version of it.
