A simple status dashboard.
- Standalone - just Perl and some modules, no web server or database required
- REST API - including a public read-only one
- RSS feeds
Docker is the easiest way to get things running:
$ docker run --name=towncrier -d -p 8080:8080 robn/towncrier
Existing Perl with Carton
If you have a system with a fairly recent Perl already, then Carton is your next best choice:
$ git clone http://github.com/robn/towncrier.git $ cd towncrier $ curl -L http://cpanmin.us | perl - Carton $ carton install --deployment $ carton exec plackup bin/app.pl
For production you'll need to know a little more about Perl webapp deployment. Go and read the docs for Carton and Dancer::Deployment.
Get Perl, get all the dependencies, run the program. This is the developer option, and you're expected to know what you're doing :)
You need to install the initial statuses and services. Look at bin/fixtures.sh to get started.
There's some knobs you can twiddle in config.yml.
