Vertical app merge components for Idem and grains support on Linux

Project description

Grains, execution modules, and state modules common to all posix systems


Install with pip:

pip install idem-posix


Clone the idem-posix repo and install with pip:

git clone idem_posix
pip install -e idem_posix


After installation the grains command should now be available


install requirements-test.txt with pip and run pytest:

pip install -r idem-posix/requirements-test.txt
pytest idem-posix/tests


Instructions for extending idem-posix into an OS specific pop project

Install pop:

pip install --upgrade pop

Create a new directory for the project:

mkdir idem-{specific_posix_os}
cd idem-{specific_posix_os}

Use pop-seed to generate the structure of a project that extends grains and idem:

pop-seed -t v idem-{specific_posix_os} -d grains exec states
  • “-t v” specifies that this is a vertically app-merged project
  • “-d grains exec states” says that we want to implement the dynamic names of “grains”, “exec”, and “states”

Add “idem-posix” to the requirements.txt:

echo idem-posix >> requirements.txt

And that’s it! Go to town making grains, execution modules, and state modules specific to your posix os. Follow the conventions you see in idem-posix.
