pyBit (πβ or πβιϑ) itself is what it says on the tin, the Python Build Integration Toolkit.
The system consists of two parts, a single server, and one to many clients. pybit-web is the server part, and pybit-client the client part. You will also need a PostgreSQL database, which we speak to using python-psycopg2.
Likewise, the client only speaks to the controller using the queue, and the HTTP API, never the database. By loosely coupling components, we aim to make it easy to extend the system to support a variety of different configurations and scenarios.
We aim to be flexible enough to build any combination of package type (i.e. DEB, RPM) for any arch, for any system (even, say .MSI installers for MS Windows). Currently however, we are mostly concerned with building ARM and i386 packages targeting Debian GNU/Linux 'Wheezy', and above.
