Openshift Node DIY

Usage

rhc create-app <app name> http://tinyurl.com/OpenShiftNodeDIY

What this cartridge provides out of the box

  1. node.js (latest stable currently 0.10.35)
  2. npm (latest stable currently 1.4.28)
  3. grunt
  4. bower

What this cartridge does out of the box

Not much.

  1. Installs node.js (version specified by $OPENSHIFT_NODEJS_VERSION and resolved by semver.io)
  2. Installs grunt, bower, and forever globally (specified by $OPENSHIFT_NPM_GLOBALS)
  3. Allows the user to manually install required dependencies (in a build action_hook)
  4. Runs npm start if package.json is found in repo directory (log is written to $OPENSHIFT_NODEJS_LOG_DIR)

How can I modify the cartridge

Use a different version of node
(using 0.11.13 as an example)
  1. Run rhc env set OPENSHIFT_NODEJS_CUSTOM_VERSION="0.11.13" -a <app name>
  2. Run rhc cartridge reload http://tinyurl.com/OpenShiftNodeDIY -a <app name>

Heads up! The cartridge defaults to installing grunt, bower, and forever globally. Bower depends on node >=0.10.0. If you wish to use an older version of node set $OPENSHIFT_NPM_CUSTOM_GLOBALS to not include bower.

Install more npm packages globally
(using gulp and component as an example)
  1. Run rhc env set OPENSHIFT_NPM_CUSTOM_GLOBALS="gulp component" -a <app name>
  2. Run rhc cartridge reload http://tinyurl.com/OpenShiftNodeDIY -a <app name>

Thanks!
