StackScripts™ provide a flexible way to customize our distribution templates. They're very easy to use — find a StackScript, answer its questions, and click deploy. When the deployment is first booted, the script is executed and does its thing. You can even watch its progress by viewing the console.
StackScripts can be private to your account, shared to the Linode community, or chosen from our library of open source StackScripts. The Linode Manager Users and Grants permission system enables you to restrict who can use or edit your private StackScripts. The Linode API can even manage StackScripts, so management can be rolled into your existing workflow.
Take a look at our StackScript guide for detailed documentation on how to deploy and develop StackScripts.
