Custom scripts in your language

Write custom scripts in PowerShell, Bash, Python, F# or C# today. Octopus takes care of transporting the script to the remote machines you are deploying to, and running them locally, so they have full access to everything they need to do to deploy applications.

Write custom scripts in the language of your choice

Access variables

Octopus uses Variables to manage the settings that change between environments - like passwords and connection strings. These are made available to your scripts so you can use them for environment-specific deployment logic.

Centralized output

Octopus can run your script in parallel across hundreds or thousands of nodes if needed, and brings all the output back to a single deployment log that's easily accessible.

Run your script across multiple nodes if required

We've been overhauling our internal infrastructure and back-end systems over the past month, including a move back to full @OctopusDeploy deployments; rediscovering how nice it is to have a platform-agnostic orchestrator that can deploy practically anything, anywhere ❤

Tools like @OctopusDeploy can be great in enabling culture change, we've been able to scale and improve our configuration story since we started using it https://buff.ly/2JyRmTY
