Description

Installs a full Gitorious server software stack. Details to be filled in.

Requirements

Platform

Currently known to work with Ubuntu and Debian systems.

Cookbooks

In brief, these cookbooks are used to build a full running Gitorious stack:

Attributes

git/url

The Git URL to the Gitorious codebase. This can be swapped out for an alternate or forked version. The default points to the Gitorious mainline, git://gitorious.org/gitorious/mainline.git.

git/reference

A Git SHA hash, tag, or branch reference on the node[:gitorious][:git][:url] Git repository. Use this to lock down a specific revision (for reliable rebuilds over time), or to use an alternate branch. The default is master.

Note: The Gitorious codebase is synced from the Git URL, meaning that running Chef again after some time could update the Rails application. If this is not your desired behavior be sure to set this attribute to a Git tag or SHA hash to lock in your version.

web_server

The HTTP web server front end to handle Gitorious traffic. Valid values are nginx and apache2. The default is nginx.

Note: Currently on nginx has full support. Apache2 work is ongoing.

ssl/key

The SSL private key to be used by the HTTP web server. This file is expected to exist in the operating system's default location (i.e. /etc/ssl/private under Debian flavors). The default is ssl-cert-snakeoil.key and should be replaced when running in production (nobody wants to accept a self-signed certificate in the wild).

ssl/cert

The SSL public key to be used by the HTTP web server. This file is expected to exist in the operating system's default location (i.e. /etc/ssl/certs under Debian flavors). The default is ssl-cert-snakeoil.pem and should be replaced when running in production.

app_user

The unix account that will run the Gitorious web application. This will also be the SSH account in the Git URL. The default is git.

app_base_dir

The base path containing the Gitorious web application. The default is /srv/gitorious.

Note: the rails application actually is installed in #{node[:gitorious][:app_base_dir]}/current, corresponding to the capistrano conventions.

git_base_dir

The base path containing the Git repositories managed by Gitorious. The default is /var/git.

rails_env

The Rails environment mode under which Gitorious will operate. There shouldn't be a need to override this value except for development or other experimentation. The default is production.

Note: this value gets used when running the Rails application and when calling all rake tasks.

rvm_gemset

All gems for the Gitorious Rails application will be installed in this RVM gemset. The default is gitorious.

Note: using bundler with --deployment proved less than successful so we can use RVM to isolate gems instead in the meantime.

db/host

The host that runs the MySQL server. The default is localhost which is currently the only well-supported value. Work needs to be done to optionally handle a database operating on another server instance.

db/database

The MySQL database name, which will be created. The default is gitorious.

db/user

The MySQL database user for Gitorious, which will be created. The default is gitor which seems odd except MySQL usernames cannot exceed 8 characters.

db/password

The MySQL user's password. The default is gitorious.

Note: This attribute should be set to ensure good application security.

host

The virtual host name resolving to the Gitorious Rails application. This value gets used in cookie names, web server configuration and other places. The default is gitorious.local and should be customized for Gitorious to operate properly.

Note: as described in the Gitorious wiki, a value of git should be avoided as it is reserved. Too bad, since that's usually a great first choice.

support_email

Email address to the support for the Gitorious server. The default is support@gitorious.org and should be customized.

notification_emails

List of email addresses to send server errors to seperated by whitespace. The default is an empty string.

public_mode

Determines if Gitorious operates in a public mode (true) or in private mode (false). The default is true (public mode).

only_admins_create

Determines whether or not only site admins can create new projects. The default is false.

admin/email

The email address given to the admin which is used to initially log in. A default admin user will be created to manage the Gitorious instance. The default is admin@gitorious.local and this should be customized for any emails to be properly delivered.

admin/password

An initial password for the admin user which is used to initially log in. The default is admin.

Note: This attribute should be set or immediately updated to ensure good application security.

locale

Sets the locale for Gitorious. Known values are en, es, fr, and pt-BR. The default is en.

hide_http_clone_urls

Determines whether or not HTTP clone URLs are hidden from the interface. The default is false.

optional_tls/url

The Git URL to the action_mailer_optional_tls rails plugin which is used to support SMTP/TLS mail deliveries. The default is git://github.com/collectiveidea/action_mailer_optional_tls.git.

mailer/delivery_methods

Configures the delivery method for the Rails ActionMailer. For more details regarding ActionMailer tuning, see the Rails Guides. The default is smtp.

smtp/tls

Determines whether or not to require TLS when negotiating with the SMTP server. The default is false.

smtp/address

The SMTP server that will deliver mail from Gitorious. The default is smtp.example.com which must be customized to ensure proper operation of Gitorious.

smtp/port

The port that the SMTP server listens to. The default will attempt to connect on port 25.

Note: If SSL/TLS is used, then you will want to customize the port. For example, Google's Gmail SMTP servers listen on port 587.

smtp/domain

Allows the action_mailer_optional_tls rails plugin to set a domain which is primarily used when talking to Google's Gmail servers. Please see the plugin's project page for more details. The default is an empty string.

smtp/authentication

The authentication method to use when connecting to the SMTP server. The default is plain. To disable this attribute, set it to an empty string.

smtp/username

The username to use when authenticating to the SMTP server. This will only be used if set. The default is unset (an empty string).

smtp/password

The password to use when authenticating to the SMTP server. This will only be used if set. The default is unset (an empty string).
