Thanks Martin,

We can probably make use of the approach used in the Ansible-galaxy-tools role.

Regards.

Subject: Re: [galaxy-dev] configuration management, tool shed and tool revisions

Hello Steve,

Galaxy project's efforts in automating tool installations are mostly 
represented by the following Ansible playbook 
(https://github.com/afgane/galaxy-tools-playbook) and a role 
(https://github.com/galaxyproject/ansible-galaxy-tools).
We plan on improving that tracked at: 
https://github.com/galaxyproject/galaxy/issues/1115

The install_tool_shed_repositories.py script should install the latest revision 
when no revision is specified (and owner and repo name is present). This 
feature was added on May 14, 2014 
(https://github.com/galaxyproject/galaxy/commit/2d5c37a73f90931e03291d5c4ad6057a0e41a712).

Please let us know how it works for you.

Thank you for using Galaxy.

Hi,

We are using Puppet to manage the configuration for VMs for our development and 
production Galaxy instances.  We would like to be able to specify tool shed 
tools and their revisions and have Puppet ensure that they are installed.  Our 
Puppet code makes use of the “install_tool_shed_repositories.py” script and a 
script based on that which checks to see whether a particular tool and revision 
is installed.

We are finding that if we don’t specify the latest revision of a tool that the 
“install_tool_shed_repositories.py” script fails.  Is this what others 
experience?

I know other sites are doing configuration management with Ansible.  What 
approach are these sites taking for ensuring tools are installed or are these 
sites doing the tool installations outside of configuration management?

Regards.
