Collins Worker Service
Full Description

Status Update for Collins


Collins is a distributed task processor which can control worker nodes at various sites from a central console. Tasks can be scheduled, and executed at a regular frequency or be executed in an ad-hoc file. The worker nodes require only outbound IP access to the Cloud based API. A task is anything that can be wrapped in a Docker container, and output some basic HTML tags which will be rendered at the central console.


  • Added ability to add/delete jobs to UI
  • ACI linter plugin Completed
  • implemented DRF adapter for ember-data
  • verified ability to traverse firewalls

In Progress

  • continuing to cleanup UI
  • integration testing
  • some backend automations when jobs are submitted

Need help

If someone is familiar with Ansible, I think a cool next plugin would be to execute and arbitrary ansible-playbook and bubble the output up.


This project is under heavy development. The easiest way to start contributing is to run a dev environment using
docker-compose. The current docker file will map local volumes so your code is live at all times.

docker-compose build
docker-compose up


virtualenv venv
source venv/bin/activate
pip install -r requirementst.txt
python makemigrations
python migrate
python runserver
