This repository contains the code used to deploy data.coop's services and websites. We use Ansible to encode our infrastructure setup. Only the association's administrators have access to deploy the services.
To deploy the services, the included
deploy.sh script can be used. The
Ansible playbook uses two custom-made roles (in the
ubuntu_base- used to configure the host itself and install the necessary packages
docker- used to deploy our services and websites with Docker containers
The script has options to deploy only one of the roles. Select services only can also be specified. By default, the script deploys everything.
Here is a summary of the options that can be used with the script:
# deploy everything ./deploy.sh # deploy the ubuntu_base role only ./deploy.sh base # deploy user setup only ./deploy.sh users # deploy the docker role only ./deploy.sh services # deploy SINGLE_SERVICE Docker service only ./deploy.sh services SINGLE_SERVICE
SINGLE_SERVICE should match one of the service names in the
In order for us to be able to test our setup locally, we use Vagrant to
deploy the services in a virtual machine. To do this, Vagrant and
VirtualBox must both be installed on the development machine. Then, the
services can be deployed locally by using the
tool. The working directory needs to be the root of the repository for
this to work properly.
Note: As our secrets are contained in an Ansible Vault file, only the administrators have the ability to run the deployment in Vagrant. However, one could replace the vault file for testing purposes.
Here is a summary of the commands that are available with the
# Create and provision the VM vagrant up # Re-provision the VM vagrant provision # SSH into the VM vagrant ssh # Power down the VM vagrant halt # Power down and delete the VM vagrant destroy
vagrant command-line tool does not support supplying extra
variables to Ansible on runtime, so to be able to deploy only parts of
the Ansible playbook to Vagrant, the
deploy.sh script can be used with
--vagrant flag. Here are some examples:
# deploy the ubuntu_base role only in the Vagrant VM ./deploy.sh --vagrant base # deploy SINGLE_SERVICE Docker service only in the Vagrant VM ./deploy.sh --vagrant services SINGLE_SERVICE
Note that the
--vagrant flag should be the first argument when using
