Node distribution and deployment toolkit
Node distribution shell script. nDistro allows you to build your own node distribution using a simple configuration file, without depending on large programs. To contribute a node binary head over to nodes.
$ cd /usr/local/bin && curl https://github.com/visionmedia/ndistro/raw/master/install | sh
$ npm install ndistro
A nDistro is simply a dotfile named .ndistro which defines module and node binary version dependencies. In the example below we specify the node binary version 0.1.102, as well as several 3rd party modules.
node 0.1.102 module senchalabs connect module visionmedia express 1.0.0beta2 module visionmedia connect-form module visionmedia connect-redis module visionmedia jade module visionmedia ejs module learnboost node-canvas 0.4.0 canvas
Follow the installation step above to gain access to the ndistro executable, and then in your distro directory that contains .ndistro run:
To share distributions create a .ndistro GitHub repository, after which you can push several distributions, for some examples view mine here.
To list a user's distributions execute:
$ ndistro visionmedia
To install one to the CWD run:
$ ndistro visionmedia redis
or $ ndistro visionmedia express
Updating a library with nDistro is easy, first remove it:
$ rm -fr modules/express
or if you wish to have a clean start and re-install everything:
$ rm -fr bin modules && ndistro
Specifies the version of node to install.
Installs user's project at the given version or HEAD.
module visionmedia express module visionmedia express 1.0.0beta2 module felixge node-formidable master formidable
./bin/node, node will first look at
../lib/node for modules, which means when you install modules via ndistro, you do not need to require() them relative, you may simply
