SaltyMill

SaltyMill uses Salt to deploy a tilemill stack on a clean Ubuntu Trusty VM. The major components are:

  • TileMill: cartographic IDE for turning map data into web or static maps
    • Additional fonts
    • Sample projects
    • Waterpolygon file
  • PostGIS: Postgresql database with GIS extensions, holds OpenStreetMap data
  • Nginx: web server, provides password authentication and allows services to share one port (80).
  • OSM (optional): extract of OpenStreetMap data downloaded and imported
  • OSRM (optional): Open Source Routing Machine, a high speed routing engine indexed from the downloaded OSM extract
    • OSRMWeb: A trip routing web interface to your data that uses the OSRM backend.
  • TileStream (optional): A high performance tile streaming interface for exported MBTiles files.
  • log.io: A web interface for viewing the salt log.

It's a conversion of http://github.com/stevage/tilemill-server

Building a machine with the three main components takes a few minutes. Adding OSM and OSRM can take half an hour or more, possibly much more, depending on machine configuration and extract size.

Note that log.io opens a security hole, in that the full salt minion logs are publicly visible, possbily containing database passwords and such. Consider editing logging/web_server.conf for greater security.

Turbo one-VM one-line installer

On a clean Ubuntu Trusty VM, run this command:

curl -Ls https://raw.github.com/stevage/saltymill/master/turbo.sh > turbo.sh && bash ./turbo.sh

You'll be prompted to edit the settings file, which is commented. Follow output at http://SERVERNAME/saltymill

For unattended installation with default settings:

curl -Ls https://raw.github.com/stevage/saltymill/master/turbo.sh > turbo.sh && bash ./turbo.sh noedit

Set up one VM

This is the easier way to run Salt: "masterless minion". The Salt "minion" is installed, then it drives itself to carry out the installation.

On a clean Ubuntu Trusty VM

curl -Ls http://bootstrap.saltstack.org | sudo sh
# Nginx needs to know the server's actual IP.
echo fqdn: `curl -s http://ifconfig.me` | sudo tee /etc/salt/grains > /dev/null
sudo service salt-minion restart

# Install these scripts:

sudo apt-get install -qqy git && 
sudo git clone --quiet --depth 1 https://github.com/stevage/saltymill /srv/salt

# Set up pillar properties:

cd /srv/salt
sudo cp -R pillar /srv/
# Edit /srv/pillar/tm.sls now. Comments are in the file.

# Build!

sudo salt-call --local state.highstate -l info

Watch it build

You can watch the progress of your server being built. Go to http://<serverip>/saltymill

Set up several "minion" VMs

In this set up, multiple Salt "minions" can be set up by a single Salt Master. You will need one VM each. This is the way to go if you need to build a bunch of servers for a workshop or something. Later, you can roll out any configuration choanges: modify /srv/pillar/tm.sls on the Master, then run salt state.highstate.

On each minion (clean Ubuntu Trusty VM):

m=INSERT.YOUR.SALTMASTER.HOSTNAME.HERE

curl -Ls http://bootstrap.saltstack.org | sudo sh
echo master: $m | sudo tee -a /etc/salt/minion 

# Nginx needs to know the server's actual IP.
echo fqdn: `curl -s http://ifconfig.me` | sudo tee /etc/salt/grains > /dev/null

sudo service salt-minion restart

On the Saltmaster (any VM):

#Install Salt:

curl -Ls http://bootstrap.saltstack.org | sudo sh -s -- -M -N

#Install these scripts:

sudo apt-get install -qqy git && 
sudo git clone --quiet --depth 1 https://github.com/stevage/saltymill /srv/salt

#Set up pillar properties:

cd /srv/salt
sudo cp -R pillar /srv/

# Edit /srv/pillar/tm.sls now. Comments are in the file.

sudo service salt-master restart

yes | sudo salt-key -A

sudo salt '*' state.highstate

Watch it build

You can watch the progress of your servers being built. Go to http://<serverip>/saltymill for each one.

Using launcher.sh

If your SSH is set up so that you can connect to your minions with no arguments ("ssh myminion"), then you can use launcher.sh. (See this blog post for how to do that.)

./launcher.sh minion1 minion2
# ... wait ...
ssh saltmaster "yes | salt-key"
ssh saltmaster "salt '*' state.highstate"
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
