IceWarp Installation Script

 •  Filed under icewarp, installation, deployment, script, automation

Are you currently searching for an easy way to install IceWarp Business Mail Server on Linux, preferably a Debian-based distribution? There's an easy way to automate that! I've written this awesome script in less than one hour:


# IceWarp Download And Deployment Script
# Created by Bart Simons, 2016

# Dependencies:
#  - wget
#  - pv

echo "Downloading IceWarp..."  
wget -q --show-progress -O icewarp.tar.gz

echo "Creating working directory..."  
mkdir icewarp

echo "Extracting IceWarp..."  
pv icewarp.tar.gz | tar -xzf - --strip-components=1 -C icewarp

echo "Changing directory to working directory..."  
cd icewarp

echo "Executing installer..."  

echo "Removing installation files..."  
cd ..  
rm icewarp.tar.gz  
rm -rf icewarp

echo "Done!"  

This should work, good luck with your brand new IceWarp installation!

Node.js Linux Deployment Script

 •  Filed under installation, node.js, nodejs, linux, deployment, script

Need an easy solution to deploy the latest version of Node.js on Linux? This Bash script that I made does exactly that, and nothing more. There might be more elegant and better ways to deploy Node.js but I needed something lightweight and still as functional as solutions like nvm and n. The only things this script depends on are bash,curl,sed,grep and tar. These tools come preinstalled on almost all Linux distributions,


# Node.js deployment script (automatically fetches the latest version)


DOWNLOAD=$(curl -s $LINK | grep -o '<a .*href=.*>' | sed -e 's/<a /\<a /g' | sed -e 's/<a .*href=['"'"'"]//' -e 's/["'"'"'].*$//' -e '/^$/ d' | grep 'linux' | grep "$CPUARCH" | grep ".tar.gz")  

echo "[*] Downloading the latest version of Node.js .."

$(curl -s $LINK -o $DOWNLOAD)

echo "[*] Node.js has been downloaded .."  
echo "[*] Creating folder in /opt and unpacking Node.js there .."

$(tar -xf $DOWNLOAD -C $DESTINATIONDIR --strip-components=1)

echo "[*] Symlinking Node.js and npm into /usr/bin .."

$([ -f /usr/bin/node ] && rm /usr/bin/node)
$([ -f /usr/bin/nodejs ] && rm /usr/bin/nodejs)
$([ -f /usr/bin/npm ] && rm /usr/bin/npm)
$(ln -s $DESTINATIONDIR/bin/node /usr/bin/node)
$(ln -s $DESTINATIONDIR/bin/node /usr/bin/nodejs)
$(ln -s $DESTINATIONDIR/bin/npm /usr/bin/npm)

echo "[*] All done!"  

I'd much rather program something like this in Python, but this actually works pretty good! I'm happy with the results 🍻
