See https://github.com/viccuad/salt-configs .

The idea is to apply the Puppet code pattern to create salt config files to setup from a GUIless workstation, to laptop configs, Desktop Environments, and later add NAS, router, media servers, Kodi, etc.

Dotfiles

If you don't want to dive into salt and just want to extract some dotfile config from here, look at: - salt/profile/dotfiles/<whatever>/files/*: a file tree that you could put right on to ~ with stow and the like - salt/profile/dotfiles/<whatever>/files/init.sls: salt state to install dependencies, append environmental variables, aliases, process template and copy them where they correspond, etc - salt/profile/dotfiles/<whatever>/templates/*: files that are processed by salt and copied into place

Salt code pattern

Debug salt on your client (the machine running the salt-minion) via:

salt-call -l debug --state-output=mixed state.apply

The code that describes the infrastructure is implementing the following pattern:

  • Description of the infrastructure:

[] Ids (identity of the machine. Eg: machine02) [] [] Roles (business logic. Eg: workstation, nas) [] [] [] Profiles (Configure whole stack. Eg: dns server) [] [] [] [] Salt formulas (Configure part of the stack. eg: sshd)

  • Data of the infrastructure: separated into the pillars.

This pattern is a best-practices one for Puppet, see 1 and 2.

Building your own Debian Stretch image

Until Debian Stretch is officially released, you can build your own Stretch lxc image (following the official scripts) and use it for the Vagrantfile.

Inside this repo, do:

$ git clone https://anonscm.debian.org/git/cloud/debian-vm-templates.git $ sudo make -C debian-vm-templates/custom-lxc-vagrant stretch $ cp debian-vm-templates/custom-lxc-vagrant/stretch.box . $ vagrant up $ rm stretch.box

Looking for mad skills in:

saltstack salt debian dotfiles configs vagrant
