I am looking for advice or existing code to install IPFS with puppet on CentOS 7.
IPFS is not available in most package managers (separate discussion on that here), so I guess I will be creating a puppet module to install IPFS. The “canonical” install instructions don’t fit very well with puppet’s idempotent philosophy, but there are also multiple alternative installation procedures in the project readme. I will summarize the options here:
- ensure prebuilt package tarball on machine, exec unzip, exec install
ipfs_updateon machine, exec
snap package installed using an exec, or else implementing snap provider for
vcsrepo the IPFS source code, install go… not packaged either?!? - ok so using this golang module I guess, exect
go get, exec
None of these look great to me. Perhaps (1) or (2) really are the best way to go?
