RailsBridge BugMash Server Script
(I need a longer name. taking submissions.)
This is a script to take a linux or mac box from ground zero to Rails Testing Machine. You will end up with MySQL, Postgres, Sqlite, Memcached and many rubies, as well as automated testing scripts.
- untar the installer to your home directory (or do git clone git://github.com/tsykoduk/Rails-Bugmasher.git)
- Setup password-less sudo for your work account (not mandatory, but nice)
- There really needs to be a step three - don't you think?
- run the installer
Centos is currently borked. Please do not use.
What's it doing under the hood?
It's updating your system, grabbing a whole bunch of new packages, installing them, configuring them, getting rvm, installing 3 or 4 rubies and pressing on.
Should I use this on my lovingly built workstation?
Seriously, we are running automated updates, upgrades, and core system package installs. Use a VM that you just installed linux onto.
Can I use this to build a production ready application server?
Again - no.
Well, possibly - but we have done zero hardening, and several of the packages are for development, not front line, battle hardened servers. This is a development tool.
This is fully copylefted. If you find some use for it, please do let me know.
