Cloud Posse distribution of awesome apps.

Introduction

Use this repo to easily install releases of popular Open Source apps. We provide a few ways to use it.

  1. Make Based Installer. This installer works regardless of your OS and distribution. It downloads packages directly from their GitHub source repos and installs them to your INSTALL_PATH.
  2. Alpine Linux Packages. Use our Alpine repository to install prebuilt packages that use the original source binary (where possible) from the maintainers' official GitHub repo releases.
  3. Docker Image. Use our docker image as a base-image or as part of a multi-stage docker build. The docker image always distributes the latest linux binaries for x86_64 architectures.

See examples below for usage.

Sponsorship

Package repository hosting is graciously provided by cloudsmith. Cloudsmith is the only fully hosted, cloud-native, universal package management solution, that enables your organization to create, store and share packages in any format, to any place, with total confidence. We believe there’s a better way to manage software assets and packages, and they’re making it happen!

Usage

Debian Repository (recommended)

A public Debian repository is provided by Cloud Posse. The repository is hosted by Cloudsmith Using this Debian repository is ultimately more reliable than depending on GitHub for availability and provides an easier way to manage dependencies pinned at multiple versions.

Configure the Debian repository:

The Easy Way

Cloudsmith provides an installation script to configure the Debian repository for your version of Debian.

curl -1sLf 'https://dl.cloudsmith.io/public/cloudposse/packages/cfg/setup/bash.deb.sh' | bash

NOTE: Requires bash and curl to run:

For Docker

Add the following to your Dockerfile near the top.

# Install the cloudposse Debian repository
RUN apt-get update && apt-get install -y apt-utils curl
RUN curl -1sLf 'https://dl.cloudsmith.io/public/cloudposse/packages/cfg/setup/bash.deb.sh' | bash

Installing Debian Packages

When adding packages, we recommend using apt-get update && apt-get install -yq $package to update the repository index before installing packages.

Simply install any package as normal:

apk-get install -y terraform

But we recommend that you use version pinning (the -\* is important, as it gets you the latest version of the package):

apt-get install gomplate=3.0.0-\*

RPM Repository

We publish RPM packages corresponding to all the Debian packages we publish. Installing the repository is almost the same as above.

curl -1sLf 'https://dl.cloudsmith.io/public/cloudposse/packages/cfg/setup/bash.rpm.sh' | bash

Install packages as normal. yum automatically updates the repository index before installing packages.

yum install -y terraform

Note that unlike other package systems, yum automatically updates the repository index before installing packages.

We still recommend version pinning, but yum makes it hard. You can use this command to list all the available versions of a package:

yum --showduplicate list $package

Then you can install the package with a version pinning:

VERSION=1.3.0
RELEASE=1
yum install -y $package-$VERSION-$RELEASE.$(uname -m)

Alpine Repository

A public Alpine repository is provided by Cloud Posse. The repository is hosted by Cloudsmith Using this Alpine repository is ultimately more reliable than depending on GitHub for availability and provides an easier way to manage dependencies pinned at multiple versions.

Configure the Alpine repository:

The Easy Way

Cloudsmith provides an installation script to configure the Alpine repository for your version of Alpine.

apk add --no-cache bash curl
curl -1sLf \
'https://dl.cloudsmith.io/public/cloudposse/packages/setup.alpine.sh' \
| bash  

Installing Alpine Packages

When adding packages, we recommend using apk add --update $package to update the repository index before installing packages.

Simply install any package as normal:

apk add --update terraform

But we recommend that you use version pinning:

apk add --update terraform==1.0.0-r0

And maybe even repository pinning, so you know that you get our versions:

apk add --update terraform@cloudposse==1.0.0-r0

Makefile Interface

The Makefile interface works on OSX and Linux. It's a great way to distribute binaries in an OS-agnostic way which does not depend on a package manager (e.g. no brew or apt-get).

This method is ideal for local development environments (which is how we use it) where you need the dependencies installed natively for your OS/architecture, such as installing a package on OSX.

See all available packages:

make -C install help

Install everything...

make -C install all

Install specific packages:

make -C install aws-vault chamber

Install to a specific folder:

make -C install aws-vault INSTALL_PATH=/usr/bin

Uninstall a specific package

make -C uninstall yq

Rebuilding GitHub Action Workflows

The GitHub Action workflows are compiled from the .github/package-template.yml file by running make -C .github workflows. It's also run automatically when rebuilding the README.md with make readme.

Run this make target anytime the package-template.yml changes or any new packages are added to the vendor/ folder.

IMPORTANT: The package-template.yml supports a single macro for interpolation %PACKAGE_NAME% which is replaced using a sed expression. Since the workflow uses a combation of gotemplate-like interpolations as well as inlines shell scripts, we used the %VAR% form of interpolation to avoid the need for endless escaping of interpolation specifiers.

Testing Locally

Alpine

$ make docker/build/apk/shell
$ make -C vendor/<package> apk

Debian

$ make docker/build/deb/shell
$ make -C vendor/<package> deb

RPM

$ make docker/build/rpm/shell
$ make -C vendor/<package> rpm

Mac

$ make -C vendor/<package> install

Examples

Docker Multi-stage Build

Add this to a Dockerfile to install packages using a multi-stage build process:

FROM cloudposse/packages:latest AS packages

COPY --from=packages /packages/bin/kubectl /usr/local/bin/

Docker with Git Clone

Or... add this to a Dockerfile to easily install packages on-demand:

RUN git clone --depth=1 -b main https://github.com/cloudposse/packages.git /packages && \
    rm -rf /packages/.git && \
    make -C /packages/install kubectl

Makefile Inclusion

Sometimes it's necessary to install some binary dependencies when building projects. For example, we frequently rely on gomplate or helm to build chart packages.

Here's a stub you can include into a Makefile to make it easier to install binary dependencies.

export PACKAGES_VERSION ?= main
export PACKAGES_PATH ?= packages/
export INSTALL_PATH ?= $(PACKAGES_PATH)/bin

## Install packages
packages/install:
        @if [ ! -d $(PACKAGES_PATH) ]; then \
          echo "Installing packages $(PACKAGES_VERSION)..."; \
          rm -rf $(PACKAGES_PATH); \
          git clone --depth=1 -b $(PACKAGES_VERSION) https://github.com/cloudposse/packages.git $(PACKAGES_PATH); \
          rm -rf $(PACKAGES_PATH)/.git; \
        fi

## Install package (e.g. helm, helmfile, kubectl)
packages/install/%: packages/install
        @make -C $(PACKAGES_PATH)/install $(subst packages/install/,,$@)

## Uninstall package (e.g. helm, helmfile, kubectl)
packages/uninstall/%:
        @make -C $(PACKAGES_PATH)/uninstall $(subst packages/uninstall/,,$@)

Contributing Additional Packages

In addition to following the Contributing section, the following steps can be used to add new packages for review (via a PR). If possible (and it usually is), you want to find an existing package with similarly packaged release (.tar, .gz, uncompressed binary, etc.), and copy and edit its Makefile.

  1. Copy the Makefile from an existing, similar, package within the vendors directory. Name the new folder with the same name as the binary package being installed.
  2. Edit the Makefile, ensuring the DOWNLOAD_URL is properly formatted
  3. Run make init from within the directory to create the DESCRIPTION, LICENSE, RELEASE, and VERSION files.
  4. Ensure that a test task exists in the package Makefile. It should check the version number of the installed binary if possible.
  5. Test the install and ensure that it downloads and runs as expected (make -C install <your_package> INSTALL_PATH=/tmp)
  6. Test the apk build (see below)
  7. Update the README.md (make init readme/deps readme)

Testing apk builds

To validate that a new package will build into an apk you can use the following steps;

make docker/build/apk/shell
make -C vendor/<appname> apk
# Some temp build files in the volume mount set user/group to nobody/nobody for apk building.
# It is easier to remove them while within the docker container.
rm -rf ./tmp/build.*
exit

Troubleshooting Package Addition

Here are some solutions to several common problems that may occur when adding a new package:

  1. When adding a new app, the `make -C vendor/ apk` command fails, claiming it can't find the app's binary file, even though it is in the expected place.

    Part of the make -C vendor/<app> apk command is building a package for the binary file inside an Alpine Linux container. Since Alpine Linux uses musl as its C library, this often leads to situations where binaries built against libc might not function on Alpine. What's more, binaries from projects written in Go will not be found by the Alpine package builder at all if they are missing any necessary libraries, like libc. The solution to this problem is to add an export APKBUILD_DEPENDS += libc6-compat line to the top of your new package's associated Makefile.

  2. When adding a new binary, the `make builder TARGETS=readme` command fails with `Unable to find image 'cloudposse/build-harness:sha-[some_SHA_stub]' locally`.

    This can occur when you have the cloudposse/build-harness repository checked out somewhere on your machine. make builder TARGETS=readme will end up looking for a docker image tagged with the SHA that the HEAD ref of your buld-harness points to. To correct this behavior, just run make init in the cloudposse/packages directory prior to running make builder TARGETS=readme.
