I recently wanted to try out fabric and didn’t have a dev linux server at my disposal, so I set it up on my Windows machine under cygwin. Here are the steps to get it running.
1. Download setup.exe
2. Run setup.exe
3. Select the following packages:
4. Start Cygwin
5. Run the following commands:
- easy_install pip
- pip install fabric
6. You should now be able to create a fabfile and start running commands against your hosts.
