Crate  Packaging Standalone Ruby Applications Crate Packaging Standalone Ruby Applications Presentation Transcript

  • CRATE Packaging Standalone Ruby Applications Jeremy Hinegardner jeremy@copiousfreetime.org @copiousfreetime
  • COPIOUS FREE TIME Fedora Ruby Packaging Gems •beanstalkd •amalgalite •haproxy •crate •libtomcrypt •keybox •libtommath •launchy •nginx •heel •ragel •hitimes •tinyproxy •htauth •rabal •stickler
  • Crate & Amalgalite
  • SURVEY
  • PRE HISTORY RubyConf 2007 (Charlotte, NC) • Sploitin’ with Ruby • Aaron Bedra • Deploying Ruby Runtimes • Bruce Williams & Rich Kilmer
  • STORYTIME
  • PERL 4, 1993
  • NO CONTROL • interpreters? - perl probably, python maybe, ruby most likely not • what libraries? - openssl? zlib? • compiler? - quite possibly not
  • What do you do, when only thing you know about your deployment location, is the Operating System?
  • AND YOU LOVE RUBY.
  • YOU MAKE CRATE.
  • SO WHAT IS CRATE?
  • embedded Ruby + ruby extensions + main wrapper + standard library + application code Crate based application
  • RUBYSCRIPT2EXE ?
  • http://www.erikveen.dds.nl/rubyscript2exe Ruby Application rubylib exe Extension dlls gems sitelib application.exe eee.exe eee.gz trailer
  • MY NEEDS • Minimally Invasive • do not unpack to a temporary location • small as can be • Wide deployment capabilities • more than linux, mac, windows, cygwin
  • Statically Compile embedded Ruby C + ruby extensions + main wrapper + standard library Ruby + application code Crate based application Pack into Amalgalite
  • 1 CREATE TABLE rubylibs ( 2       id            INTEGER PRIMARY KEY AUTOINCREMENT, 3       filename      TEXT UNIQUE, 4       compressed    BOOLEAN, 5       contents      BLOB 6       );
  • Inexact Size Measurements Executable + C Ruby libs extensions Ruby 1.8.6 2.4 M 8.4 M Crate/ruby 1.8.6 2.9 M 1.9 M
  •  1 module Kernel  2   # alias the original require away to use later  3   alias :amalgalite_original_require :require  4  5   #  6   # hook into the system 'require' to allow for required text or blobs from an  7   # amalgalite database.    8   #  9   def require( filename ) 10     loaded = amalgalite_original_require( filename ) 11   rescue LoadError => load_error 12     if load_error.message =~ /#{Regexp.escape filename}z/ then 13       loaded = Amalgalite::Requires.require( filename ) 14     else 15       raise load_error 16     end 17   end 18 19   private :require 20   private :amalgalite_original_require 21 end
  • Amalgalite ruby driver is bootstrapped in its C extension
  • DEMO
  • BOOTSTRAPPING
  • ISSUE #1 - AUTOLOAD • Problem • bypasses the require chain setup by amalgalite • used by rack, active_support, active_record • Solution • Port tree style patches? • custom gem builds?
  • ISSUE #2 - VIEWS IN WEB FRAMEWORKS • Problem • layout and templates loaded from disk • Solution • wait for Rails 3 • sinatra, others, make patches for upstream, if needed.
  • ISSUE #3 - CLASS RELOADING • Problem • Development mode reloads classes • Solution ( for now ) • production mode when running as crate based apps
  • ISSUE #4 - NOT WINDOWS FRIENDLY ( YET )
  • QUESTIONS?
