You want to SSH to your server to run a complex interactive Python program, but neither the program nor its dependencies are installed on the server. No worries: they can be sent over the SSH connection itself — without touching the file system. Allison introduces beiboot as a mechanism for server-side applications that are installed on the client.

With this, you will be able to get a basic Cockpit web console to control just about any SSH-able server right from your browser or even phone. Martin explains and demonstrates how we rewrote Cockpit’s guts to connect to arbitrary Fedora/RHEL/Debian/etc. servers, without having to install any packages on them.
