Dont Install node.js from source #36

There has to be a better way of installing the latest version of node and npm that doesn't involve building from source.

@BrandonMathis BrandonMathis added this to the 0.3.0 milestone Jan 26, 2015

  • Ok, this started with me trying to get the FE running (revising: how we install node, it's not from source; update npm and build a FE app), but I had to "fix" (encoding issue) PostgreSQL to successfully run my app.
  • smashing-dev-tool wasn't ready for prime time.
  • I found an issue related to dependencies (See Make tape more Ansible-ish (explained) #34)

What Changed?

  • Installer: Now installs requirements (external/vendor roles) globally, no need for vendor/roles/
  • PostgreSQL: Is now installed with ansible-galaxy's role: ANXS.postgresql. Encoding is now default to 'UTF8'
  • Node is now installed with my own recipe, which uses nodesource.node to install node, upgrades npm and installs packages specified on variables.
  • Steps back and doesn't uses smashing-dev-tool to build FE, it simply does gulp. Apps still using grunt build my break

Remove your local `vendor/roles`, it’s no longer used, therefore there
is no need to ignore it.
- zzet.rbenv includes a “rbenv rehash” handler. It seems that having an
empty _backend_install_essentials/handlers/main.yml_ is needed in order
to “inheirt” the handler from dependencies.
- zzet.rbenv installs ruby 2.1.5 by default, which is a better default
(latest patch), because we are installing rbenv system-wide, there is
no need (it’s ignored) to set `rbenv_users`.
- Uses leonelgalan.node (:blush:, that’s me) recipe to install the
latest node, npm and install global npm packages: coffee-script, bower
and gulp
Node and necessary packages are installed in general
- Previous setup left LATIN1 as the encoded which is very limited.
- Installer: Prevents overriding existing files/folders.
- Installer: Makes failures red
- Whitespacing
- Removes state=present (default) from general/base_packages
Renaming the roles broke it, @BrandonMathis and @iandonovan  please
review. I put back everything I thought was needed, but you know the
rename better than I do.

im gonna review this now

* Omnibox: Deploy worked, so I just reorder everything like Deploy had
* _zzet.rbenv 2.0.0_ include my contributions so it’s cool!
* _ANXS.postgresql_ broke on Tuesday, so I fix it. PR is pending merge.
* Backend checkout didn’t need to “execute” _zzet.rbenv_ again! Also…No
need to install all the plugins, just _ruby-build_ and no need to
symlink anything.
* We were installing _build-essential_ and _git_, just for _rbenv_, but
that role takes care of itself!
* Install _bundle_r manually, _rbenv-default-gems_ only work with user
* Uses `rbenv_root` instead of hardcoded path in upstart scripts.

Ready for review! Do not merge until my build finishes. I want to make sure bundle exec tape ansible everything works as advertised!

Weave is using `/dist`, we might need to make this a parameter. Same
goes for using gulp, grunt or smashing dev tool. Oops forgot the last

We are good! It took may vagrant 42s to boot and 27m 50s to run ansible (28m 22s total)

date && vagrant destroy --force && vagrant up && date && bundle exec tape ansible everything -l vagrant && date && open "http://localhost:8080/" && date && say -v "Good News" "Deployed"
