provisioning tool for building opinionated architecture following these principles:

  • free software: AGPLv3
  • multi-target: DEV, BETA (alias staging), PROD
  • container-based: LXD/LXC on Debian 12 (bookworm)
  • secured: NFT
  • monitored: MONIT


  • backup postgresql missing out on saturday
  • TOOLBOOX/nc (binary)
  • final ansible-like indicators: same/new
  • patched editor (backup+editor+diff+patch)
  • to improve log journal for each recipe (apache, for example) in order to shorten disk space


The project name miaou comes up from both a French and Reunion's Creole pun

  • miaou is a shortcut for mi aim aou, which means 'I love you'
  • miaou means 'meow' in french, related to the acronym C.H.A.T.O.N.S
