Good morning.

Hello there simple_smile

agile_geek09:11:18

@pupeno: saw your email about the Pair Programming meet up. Looks like you got some interest 😄

maleghast09:11:57

Sounds like a great idea - I cursed by geography once more 😉

mccraigmccraig10:11:49

anyone got any thoughts on config-mgmt tools ? i've been using pallet, and there is plenty i like about it (config in git, no server, clojure), but the docs are awful, there is very little project activity and i foresee problems with upcoming things like systemd, so i'm looking to move off of pallet soon

tcrayford10:11:45

@mccraigmccraig: Yeller uses ansible. I'm happy enough

tcrayford10:11:10

It's weird and whatever, but less weird than chef or puppet and perfectly fine for my use case

paulspencerwilliams10:11:54

@maleghast: remote pairing with tmux etc an option for experimentation?

mccraigmccraig11:11:48

thanks @tcrayford: i think they are all weird - ansible was top of my list to try based on googling, so i'll give that a go

tcrayford11:11:20

@mccraigmccraig: I learned a bunch by copying things out of https://github.com/sovereign/sovereign

tcrayford11:11:39

but that was like 2 years ago, and that project was a lot less mature back then

mccraigmccraig11:11:06

@tcrayford: cool, thanks. there seem to be ansible playbooks for zk & mesos around already, so i'll probably start with those

tcrayford11:11:16

makes sense.

tcrayford11:11:36

As a note, I've found a lot of the existing ansible stuff kinda bad in some way or another. Yeller's is all homegrown

tcrayford11:11:04

that may have changed though, I basically setup Yeller's ansible ~2+ years ago and tweak it every now and again now

mccraigmccraig11:11:30

ha, i expect nothing less than flakiness from web-sourced config-mgmt scripts

mccraigmccraig11:11:38

and i am rarely disappointed

tcrayford11:11:53

almost as bad as "diagnose your illness by searching google", except less fatal

maleghast15:11:50

@paulspencerwilliams: Yeah, I would be up for trying that - though the time difference might make it hard to coordinate… 😉
