In Gentoo and Funtoo Linux, profiles are used to define base system settings, and have historically had a lot of untapped potential. In Funtoo Linux, I wanted to take advantage of some of this potential to allow Funtoo Linux users to easily tailor their system for various types of roles. Enter the new Funtoo profile system.
+
Ghost is an easy to use, quick, and light blogging platform that uses nodejs and is ready to go in minutes. You can configure it to do anything from a self hosted blog for yourself, a blog that uses multiple users with their own usernames and profile pages.  
  
== What It Is ==
+
To use Ghost in production (as opposed to development mode) you simply first run:
  
Historically, users have had to add a ton of settings to <code>/etc/[[make.conf]]</code> to customize their Gentoo or Funtoo Linux system, which made setup of the operating system more difficult than it should be.
+
{{console|body=
 +
###i## emerge ghost
 +
###i## npm install --production
 +
}}
  
In Gentoo Linux, it is possible to only define one ''system profile''. Think of a system profile as the default settings that Portage uses for building everything on your system.
+
Then configure your options in {{f|/usr/share/webapps/ghost/config.example.js}} and rename it to {{f|/usr/share/webapps/ghost/config.js}}:
 +
{{file|name=config.js|lang=javascript|desc=ghost config|body=
 +
// # Ghost Configuration
 +
// Setup your Ghost install for various environments
 +
// Documentation can be found at http://support.ghost.org/config/
  
In Funtoo Linux, multiple profiles can be enabled at the same time. These include:
+
var path = require('path'),
 +
    config;
  
* '''arch''' - one arch profile is enabled, at build time, and is not changed. This defines CPU architecture-specific settings.
+
config = {
* '''build''' - one build profile is enabled, at build time, and is generally not changed. It defines the type of build, such as 'current' or 'stable', and associated settings.
+
    // ### Production
* '''flavor''' - one flavor is enabled per system, and can be changed by the user. This defines the general use of the system, such as 'minimal', 'core', 'workstation' or 'desktop'
+
    // When running Ghost in the wild, use the production environment
* '''mix-in''' - zero or more mix-ins can be enabled that enable settings specific to a particular subset of features, such as 'gnome', 'kde', 'media', 'mate', 'X', 'hardened'
+
    // Configure your URL and mail settings here
 +
    production: {
 +
        url: 'http://blog.somedomain.com',
 +

 +
            transport: 'SMTP',

This new system is really a completion of the original cascading profile design that was designed by Daniel Robbins and implemented by Seemant Kulleen as part of Portage. Funtoo Profiles designed to leverage the existing cascading profile system and provide something much more useable and maintainable for users and developers alike. Here are some of its benefits:
+
{{note|You don't need to use Gmail as your mail, just an example. E-mail is only used for when you add users to the blog, it sends a notice so they can set up their own username and their own password, or if you forget your password and need to reset.}}
  
* Fewer settings in <code>/etc/make.conf</code>. <code>CHOST</code> and <code>ARCH</code> no longer set in <code>/etc/make.conf</code>.
+
After you've completed setting up your {{f|config.js}}, you can start Ghost from:
* Separation of concerns -- arch, build, and flavor-related settings are organized together.
+
* User flexibility - any number of mix-ins can be enabled to tweak masks or USE settings as needed.
+
  
{{fancynote|See [[Custom Profiles]] for information on how to extend the profile system.}}
+
{{console|body=
 +
###i## npm start --production
 +
}}
  
== Switch to the Funtoo 1.0 Profile ==
+
Once you confirm that it has started, you use the URL and port you provided in your browser: {{c|blog.somedomain.com:2368/ghost/signup}}
 +
 +
If you use Gravatar and use the e-mail used for that, it will automatically enable your Gravatar as your users avatar. You can disable this if you'd like by adding the following to your config.js
  
=== Using eselect ===
+
{{file|name=config.js|lang=javascript|desc=ghost config|body=
The preferred method of adding and removing profiles is to use [[eselect|eselect profile]]. This will ensure that profiles are added correctly and in the proper order. The order is imperative for things to work right.

As in several other Funtoo utilities, a star ('''*''') on the right indicates an active item (your case may differ from the example above).
+
In most cases you will want to set your "flavor" first. Remember that you can only set ''one'' flavor at time.
+
 
+
To choose your favorite flavor use the '''set-flavor''' command including your selection. In this example, we will set the '''desktop''' flavor:

As you see by the '''(auto)''' entries, the '''desktop''' flavor already pre-set some mix-ins for you.
+
 
+
Now, let's head over and add some mix-ins. To add, say, the mix-ins '''gnome''' and '''kde''' we'd have to enter:
+
 
+
<console>
+
###i## eselect profile add 15
+
###i## eselect profile add 16
+
</console>
+
 
+
Or, in a one-shot:
+
 
+
<console>
+
###i## eselect profile add 15 16
+
</console>
+
 
+
If we want to remove a mix-in, for example '''gnome''', simply enter:
+
 
+
<console>
+
###i## eselect profile remove 15
+
</console>
+
 
+
Verification:

No magic here, whatever you add gets put into the <code>/etc/portage/make.profile/parent</code> file by portage.

In our case, this file contains:
+
<console>
+
###i## cat /etc/portage/make.profile/parent
+

{{fancywarning|Please, do not add anything manually into <code>parent</code> file. This may result in profile breakage.}}
+
 
+
== For Developers ==
+
 
+
=== Define the profile sub-sets you will use ===
+
 
+
So far in Funtoo we have used the exact same profiles as Gentoo thus Funtoo/2008.0 was strictly the same thing as Gentoo/2008.0 or the barely the same 10.0. This (monolithic) profile was set though a symbolic link named <code>/etc/make.profile</code> pointing on a complex directory architecture located somewhere under <code>/usr/portage/profiles</code>. This is no longer valid with the Funtoo 1.0 profiles as they are split in several smaller bricks which are then glued together via the  <code>/etc/portage/make.profile/parent</code> file (You do not need to include everything, just use the "bricks" you need). Those bricks belongs to several categories:
+
 
+
# MANDATORY -- An "arch" profile which defines settings for a particular architecture. You'll want to set this to whatever arch your system is and leave it alone. '''Setting it to a different arch than your system could severely break it.'''
+
# MANDATORY -- A "build" profile which should match the tree you wish to use. '''Stable''', '''Current''' (~arch), or '''Experimental''' (use it if you are brave enough and find '''current''' too stable).
+
# MANDATORY -- A "flavor" profile (what was previously known as ''profiles'' is still known as such in Gentoo) which describes the kind of system you want:
+
#* minimal - Be warned, minimal is exactly what it says, the minimal profile stuff you need for a usable system, nothing else. This is really for people who know what they're doing.
+
#* core - This is the core profile. This is for stuff that affects both desktops and servers.
+
#* desktop - Exactly what it says. If you're using a desktop, you should set this as your flavor.
+
#* server - If you're running a server, you should set this as your flavor.
+
# OPTIONAL -- One or more "mix-ins" profiles which describe optional add-ons. 'mix-ins' are the heart of the Funtoo 1.0 profiles. Unlike the monolithic profiles which sets a massive amount of use flags and options for you, we've split them into logical add-on profiles. For instance if you want support for gnome, you would add the gnome mix-in to your current profiles. That mix-in sets all the proper use flags and such for gnome. Same with others. Want dvd support? Add that one in. Using a rhel5 kernel which requires special versions of packages such as udev? There's a mix-in for that too. Run a mail server? web server? There's mix-ins for those also. Expect this category to grow in the future as new mix-ins are created.
+
 
+
The contents of <code>/etc/portage/make.profile/parent</code> for a basic setup might look like this:
+
 
+
{{file|name=/etc/portage/make.profile/parent|body=
+
gentoo:funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/arch/x86-64bit
+
gentoo:funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/build/current
+
gentoo:funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/flavor/core
+
 
}}
 
}}
  
A more rounded setup for a desktop might look like this:
+
If you'd like to add SSL support for your blog, you can do so in {{f|config.js}}:
 
+
{{file|name=config.js|lang=javascript|desc=ghost config|body=
{{file|name=/etc/portage/make.profile/parent|body=
+
...
gentoo:funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/arch/x86-64bit

        urlSSL: 'https://secure.myblog.com'

+
gentoo:funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/mix-ins/media
+
 
}}
 
}}

Ghost (Blogging Platform)

Tip

Ghost is an easy to use, quick, and light blogging platform that uses nodejs and is ready to go in minutes. You can configure it to do anything from a self hosted blog for yourself, a blog that uses multiple users with their own usernames and profile pages.

To use Ghost in production (as opposed to development mode) you simply first run:

# emerge ghost
# npm install --production


Then configure your options in /usr/share/webapps/ghost/config.example.js and rename it to /usr/share/webapps/ghost/config.js:

config.js (javascript source code) - ghost config
// # Ghost Configuration
// Setup your Ghost install for various environments
// Documentation can be found at http://support.ghost.org/config/
 
var path = require('path'),
    config;
 
config = {
    // ### Production
    // When running Ghost in the wild, use the production environment
    // Configure your URL and mail settings here
    production: {
        url: 'http://blog.somedomain.com',
        mail: {
            transport: 'SMTP',
            options: {
                service: 'Gmail',
                auth: {
                    user: 'user@gmail.com',
                    pass: 'password'
                }
            }
        },
        database: {
            client: 'sqlite3',
            connection: {
                filename: path.join(__dirname, '/content/data/ghost.db')
            },
            debug: false
        },
 
        server: {
            // Host to be passed to node's `net.Server#listen()`
            host: '0.0.0.0',
            // Port to be passed to node's `net.Server#listen()`, for iisnode set this to `process.env.PORT`
            port: '2368'
        }
    }
};
 
// Export config

Note

You don't need to use Gmail as your mail, just an example. E-mail is only used for when you add users to the blog, it sends a notice so they can set up their own username and their own password, or if you forget your password and need to reset.

After you've completed setting up your config.js, you can start Ghost from:

# npm start --production


Once you confirm that it has started, you use the URL and port you provided in your browser: blog.somedomain.com:2368/ghost/signup

If you use Gravatar and use the e-mail used for that, it will automatically enable your Gravatar as your users avatar. You can disable this if you'd like by adding the following to your config.js

config.js (javascript source code) - ghost config
privacy: {
    useGravatar: false
}

If you'd like to add SSL support for your blog, you can do so in config.js:

config.js (javascript source code) - ghost config
...
        url: 'http://blog.somedomain.com',
        urlSSL: 'https://secure.myblog.com'
...

After this is all done, you can start using your blog. To use it you go to the domain your provided in config.js: blog.somedomain.com:2368/ghost and you will be able to publish, write drafts, and edit any posts.
