# How to install Graphite as a user on CentOS 5.5 (with neither internet access and root account)
# --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
# Tomasz Kalkosiński - refaktor.blogspot.com
#
# Graphite is a Scalable Realtime Graphing (http://graphite.wikidot.com/)
# This script is based on two excellent tutorials:
# http://community.webfaction.com/questions/10038/how-to-install-pycairo-in-python27-thanks
# https://gist.github.com/jgeurts/3112065
# My scenario:
# - no internet access
# - only user account, no root account
# - gcc and make installed
# - some libraries missing
# - no development packages for installed libraries
#
# Goals:
# - installation directory is $HOME/graphite-install
# - install libraries to $HOME
# - install Graphite and stuff to $HOME/graphite
#
# If you see wget here - wget it to your local machine and upload to remote CentOS.
# You must have gcc and make installed. You can't go on without it.
# Check it with:
# rpm -qa | grep gcc
# ---- 1. Environment setup ----
# Set up these variables. Some of these directories don't exist yet. They will be created as you go on.
# You can put these variables to your .bashrc.
export CFLAGS="-I$HOME/include -I$HOME/include/python2.7"
export CPPFLAGS="-I$HOME/include -I$HOME/include/python2.7"
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="$HOME/lib/pkgconfig"
export LDFLAGS="-L$HOME/lib -L$HOME/lib/python2.7"
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="$HOME/lib:$HOME/lib/python2.7:$HOME/lib/python2.7/site-packages/cairo"
export PYTHONPATH="$HOME/lib/python:$HOME/lib/python2.7/site-packages:$HOME/.local/bin/usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages"
export PATH="$HOME/.local/bin:$PATH"
# ---- 2. Libraries ----
# These libraries are required by Graphite. You need to compile them, because other libraries and python modules
# need their headers. They are installed to $HOME/lib and headers are placed in $HOME/include.
cd $HOME/graphite-install

# Check output for this line:
# Python build finished, but the necessary bits to build these modules were not found:
# Make sure that _zlib and _sqlite3 IS NOT on that list. Otherwise you miss dependencies or you had errors before.

# Now you can have two Python installations in system. I use ~/bin/python everywhere from now on to use my version.

# Cairo has some dependencies to fulfill.

# Line around 24: append ALLOWED_HOSTS = ["*"]
# Lines around 46-54: change paths from /opt/graphite to your explicit graphite installation dir,
# for example /home/you/graphite. $HOME doesn't work here!
# Uncomment lines 141-150 (starting with DATABASES) and update NAME with full explicit database path. $HOME doesn't work here!

# In screen
~/bin/python manage.py runserver
# Detach with Control-A, Control-D (attach again with screen -r next time)
# Check if it works, you should see <title>Graphite Browser</title>

# You can run some example client to send some stats.
# You can adjust example-client.py delay value for more/less stats.

# Done!
# Easy as pie :)
