Current status

Upstream meta issue for tracking issues that need help from upstream - https://github.com/pupilfirst/pupilfirst/issues/797

  1. Basic package template - done
  2. Install rubygems dependencies (pull unpackaged gems from rubygems.org) - done
  3. Configure database - done (need to provide a working config/database.yml)
  4. Run database migrations - done
  5. Install node dependencies - done (needed some symlink magic)
  6. Precompile assets (includes webpacker) - done (needed to copy source tree to /var as symlinking some directories don't work)

  8. Configure puma - done (needed to set PATH explicitly for execjs to detect nodejs)
  9. Configure systemd units - done (needed to set PATH explicitly for execjs to detect nodejs)
  10. Configure nginx - done (todo: switch to unix socket)
  11. Set admin password and add school - in progress (done manually, need upstream help to enable login via username)
  12. Properly generate keys and remove hard coding - not started
  13. Setup debconf for choosing hostname and https - in progress (hostname is handled via debconf now)
