Puppet a Home Automation Gateway
NOTE: Not a puppet module.
I'll try to learn how to build a full puppet module.
This is a piece of a site.pp file that can be used to puppet a home automation system on a stock distro of Raspian, Debian or Ubuntu on a Raspberry Pi, a Beaglebone Black, or an Odroid. Every time I get a new device, I find it tedious to install all of the software from my previous system. Here's an attempt to automate that process and end up with a new gateway that has the following packages.
You'll need to learn the process of setting up a Puppet Master:
It should install the following packages:
- Apache 2.4.7
- mysql 5.5.44
- PHP 5.5.9
- node 0.12.7
- npm 2.11.3
- graphite 0.9.13
- grafana 2.1.3
- [mochad 0.1.16 - this is for X-10 module access]
These modules need to be installed on the puppet master to support the code in the site.pp.
You can typically install these modules like this:
puppet module install puppetlabs-apache
puppet module install puppetlabs-nodejs --environment development
You can search and look for newer versions at Puppet Forge: https://forge.puppetlabs.com/
- puppetlabs-apache (v1.6.0)
- dwerder-grafana (v1.2.0)
- dwerder-graphite (v5.14.0)
- mosquitto (???)
- puppetlabs-motd (v1.2.0)
- puppetlabs-mysql (v3.3.0)
- puppetlabs-ntp (v3.3.0)
- puppetlabs-rabbitmq (v5.2.3)
- reederz-nodered (v0.1.1)
- mayflower-php (v3.4.1)
- python (???)
- puppetlabs-nodejs (v0.8.0)
Obviously I'm new to puppet so if someone has a better implementation, I'm ready to try it.
