Marton Kiss marton.kiss@gmail.com

This module manages and installs Askbot with an optional custom Sass based theme.

Quick Start

class { 'askbot':
  db_provider          => 'pgsql',
  require              => Postgresql::Server::Db[$db_name],

askbot::site { 'ask.example.com':
  db_name                      => 'askbotdb',
  db_user                      => 'askbot',
  db_password                  => 'changeme',
  require                      => [ Class['redis'], Class['askbot'] ],



The Askbot puppet module is separated into individual components which Askbot needs to run.


A module that installs a standalone Askbot application with dependencies based on configuration settings. This class synchronize and install the database schema, configure the askbot-celeryd daemon required for scheduled tasks, and finally apply a proper log rotation.

The source of deployement is a git repository defined in askbot_repo and askbot_revision parameters.

class { ‘askbot’:

  dist_root                    => '/srv/dist',
  site_root                    => '/srv/askbot-site',
  askbot_branch                => 'master',
  askbot_repo                  => 'https://github.com/ASKBOT/askbot-devel.git',
  www_user                     => 'www-data',

  db_host                      => 'localhost',


A helper module to compile the Sass style sheets for a custom theme. As OpenStack Askbot theme contains pure Sass files in the repository, for a production deployment those files must be compiled into css.

askbot::theme::compass { ‘os’: require => Git[‘askbot-theme’], before => Exec[‘askbot-static-generate’], }
