class sinopia

Installs sinopia + required npms in one defined directory and integrates the sinopia as a service (/etc/init.d/sinopia). It also creates a user to run the sinopia server (default: sinopia). If you wish, you can change the username, see examples below.



  class { '::sinopia':
    conf_admin_pw_hash => 'your-pw-hash',

You can generate the admin password hash according to via command-line:

  $ node
  > crypto.createHash('sha1').update('your-admin-password').digest('hex')

You can also override several configuration parameters.

  class { '::sinopia':
    install_root        => '/usr/local',
    install_dir         => 'sinopiaxy',
    conf_admin_pw_hash  => 'your-pw-hash',
    conf_port           => '8080',
    deamon_user         => 'sinopiaxy',
    conf_listen_to_address  => '',
    conf_max_body_size  => '10mb',
    conf_max_age_in_sec => '604800',
    install_as_service  => false,

The default values for all so far configurable parameters are:

  class { '::sinopia':
    install_root        => '/opt',
    install_dir         => 'sinopia',
    deamon_user            => 'sinopia',
    conf_listen_to_address     => '',
    conf_port              => '4783',
    conf_user_pw_combinations => undef,
    conf_max_body_size     => '1mb',
    conf_max_age_in_sec    => '86400',
    install_as_service     => true,
