A Pinch of Salt: Creating Customized BitCurator builds

David Cirella | BitCurator Consortium

Have you ever wanted to customize the BitCurator environment?

Thanks to decisions made by the BitCurator developers, modifications can be made quickly and easily using the open source configuration management software Salt. The talk will give an overview of how to make modifications to the BitCurator environment to create repeatable customized installations. Two case studies will be explored: the first, adding a customized configuration file to modify the labels used by the Guymager software. The second, a work-in-progress project to create automated builds of the desktop environment in widely available cloud computing platforms.
