Islandora CLAW Install Sprint Starts Today

[Edited to add some later additions to the team]


A small but mighty dream team of Islandora CLAW contributors answered our call for stakeholders and are now coming together over the next two weeks to work on the first official Islandora CLAW Sprint of 2017.

The team:

  • Danny Lamb (Islandora Foundation)
  • Bryan Brown (Florida State University)
  • Jared Whiklo (University of Manitoba)
  • Adam Soroka (Smithsonian Institution)
  • Natkeeran Kanthan (University of Toronto Scarborough)
  • Marcus Barnes (University of Toronto Scarborough)
  • Jonathan Green (LYRASIS)
  • Diego Pino (Metropolitan New York Library Council)
  • Rosie Le Faive (University of Prince Edward Island)
  • Brian Woolstrum (Carnegie Mellon)
  • Yamil Suarez (Berklee College of Music)
  • Gavin Morris (Born-Digital)

The goal: a modular installation process that meets the following criteria:

  • Capable of supporting multiple operating systems
  • Supports Vagrant, bare metal, and eventually Docker containers
  • Can be used for both all-in-one installs as well as more complex setups involving multiple servers
  • Can be used to maintain/update existing installations as the CLAW codebase evolves
  • Is well documented

Ansible has been identified as the dev/ops tool that fits best with these goals, and over the course of several sprints the existing claw_vagrant codebase will be adapted into an Ansible based solution. You can follow their work with this project in Github or by staying tuned for more updates here.
