This is a configuration that I use with shadow_puppet to build and configure my desktops.
- shadow_puppet (see below)
If you are installing to a clean system, a bootstrap script is provided to install any needed system dependencies, rubygems, and shadow_puppet. Just run
ruby bootstrap.rb (might need sudo).
To run the tasks to setup your system (called manifests), just run @sudo shadow_puppet desktop_manifest.rb@. You can also make other manifests for specific systems with different configurations (e.g. web_server_manifest.rb, rails_development_workstation.rb).
- Ruby gems
- Desktop config
- unix tools (e.g. screen)
