Alignak modules (official way)

Alignak modules are available on PyPi. Their name starts with “alignak_module”. To install them, install with pip command:

pip install alignak_module_nameofmodule

The configuration file of the installed module will be installed in the folder:


Each module installed on Alignak stores its configuration file in this part of the configuration.

Shinken modules

The Shinken modules are not compatible as is with Alignak. For some of them, only small modifications are necessary in the source code, but we do not recommend it. A lot of the features needing external modules in Shinken are now available thanks to the still existing Alignak modules.

Do not hesitate to contact the Alignak team on our IRC channel or developers list.

This matter should be discussed; for this please log an issue in the Alignak contributions project repository.
