LinchPin documentation

Welcome to the LinchPin documentation!

LinchPin is a simple and flexible hybrid cloud orchestration tool. Its intended purpose is managing cloud resources across multiple infrastructures. These resources can be provisioned, decommissioned, and configured all using declarative data and a simple command-line interface.

Additionally, LinchPin provides a Python API for managing resources. The cloud management component is backed by Ansible. The front-end API manages the interface between the command line (or other interfaces) and calls to the Ansible API.

This documentation covers the current released version of LinchPin (1.5.1). For recent features, we attempt to note in each section the version of LinchPin where the feature was added.
