experimental installer for getting open source apps running quickly on DigitalOcean
I built this small Sinatra app because I wanted a simpler way for people to install my software OneBody on DigitalOcean.
This uses the new MetaData feature of the DO API to pass a config string to be processed by CloudConfig.
Once that is done, there is a small bit of code running on the VM to tell this app when the install is finished so you get a progress bar while you’re waiting.
To be clear, DigitalOcean is doing all the real work – this app simply acts as a hand-off between your app.yml config file on GitHub and the DigitalOcean API.
