Lilac, a configuration tool which was derived from Fruity, a popular
configuration tool for Nagios, has released it’s first alpha release.
This release can be downloaded to create new Nagios configurations and
manage them. It supports all of Nagios’s object types as well as
multiple inheritance. Lilac goes a step further with templates and
lets you bind services, escalations and dependencies to host templates
as well. The alpha release features a rich exporter system as well.
The first alpha release does not have a completed configuration
importer (but does come with a basic Nagios configuration to start
from), nor does it have the auto-discovery feature. Those will be
provided in the next Alpha release. For now, Lilac needs people to
test the functionality of the UI and file bug reports or feature
requests to help make Lilac the best configuration tool out there for

documentation, forums, and issue tracking.
Thanks all, and for those who knew about this project, it’s been a
long time coming!
