Quick start guide to install NPK ( on Ubuntu 18

This is an in-progress quick start install guide for NPK on Ubuntu 18.

From a new Ubuntu 18 box, install the essentials:

apt install unzip -y
apt install python3-pip -y
apt install jq -y
apt install npm -y
pip3 install awscli --upgrade —-user

Download/build install the Google version of jsonnet!!! Installing the apt/snap version from Ubuntu was a major issue for me that caused NPK's install to fail terribly!

Now open ~/.profile and add this to the end:

export PATH=~/.local/bin:$PATH

Now update that file with:

source ~/.profile

Download a working version of Terraform (the very latest seems not to work right with NPK):

cd /tmp
cp terraform ./local/bin

Create an npk user with awscli:

aws configure —-profile npk

When asked, fill out AWS access key, secret access key, default region name (I think us-east-1 is fine).

Then download NPK:

git clone /opt/npk

Now follow their instructions to configure the npk-settings.json file and then you should (fingers crossed) be ready to run and let the crackin' begin!
