An possible improvement - add the --yes-flag to all apt-get-operations, so the user won't get prompted as much.

You could also add a </dev/null at the end of the apt-add-repository command:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:chris-lea/node.js </dev/null

Just a heads up: when running the script above from a stock install of Ubuntu 12.04, make sure to run sudo apt-get update before sudo apt-get install python-software-properties, otherwise the latter will fail.

Also, "As of Node.js v0.10.0, the nodejs package from Chris Lea's repo includes both npm and nodejs-dev," so no need to apt-get install npm.

Hey! Thanks for the script... a newbie question: How can I put that in init? I want it to start with the system.
Thanks

So far, on Ubuntu 14.04:

  • Installed Django 1.5 (clears cannot import name python_2_unicode_compatible error)
  • sudo vim /opt/graphite/webapp/graphite/settings.py - set the SECRET_KEY to something.

Set a database in local_settings.py.

Error received during sudo python manage.py syncdb:

ImproperlyConfigured: settings.DATABASES is improperly configured. Please supply the ENGINE value. Check settings documentation for more details.

Anyone know of an example of 14.04? I'm running out of time to track all the various dependencies :D

Edit: This might be the ticket - on 14.04, there appears to be an apt package.
