Puppet Module to Install StackStorm – Announcing Release Candidate

January 4, 2018
By Nick Maludy of Encore Technologies

So far StackStorm has multiple installation methods: deb/rpm packages, curl|bash installer used for simple deployments, Docker, Ansible, Chef.

Now it’s Puppet time!

Starting in July of 2017 a major effort has been underway to modernize the Puppet module to install/deploy StackStorm. In August of 2017 v1.0.0-beta was released with completely re-worked internals to support the new StackStorm deb/rpm package installation method and fix a large number of bugs. Since the beta we’ve continued development of new features like supporting all 4 StackStorm OSes, Puppet 4 and 5 compatibility, ChatOps installation and configuration, modernized pack management, full integration testing in Docker containers along with a slew of Puppet best practices improvements.

Today we’re proud to announce the Release Candidate version v1.0.0-rc of the stackstorm-st2 Puppet module which is available on Forge.


https://forge.puppet.com/stackstorm/st2

Our plan is to release v1.0.0 stable in the coming weeks, but in order to do this we need your help. We ask everyone who is interested in Puppet-based deployment to give the module a try and provide your feedback!

Keep reading to find out more details about what’s changed and where the project is heading.

StackStorm Exchange goes Serverless

Run StackStorm Exchange actions as AWS Lambda functions. Serverless and Stormless. 100% Open Source.

December 14, 2017
by Dmitri Zimine

StackStorm Exchange is an open source catalog of reusable actions. Integrations with everything ranging from common-man DevOps tools, suit and tie services like ServiceNow and Remedy to cool kids like Slack or Twilio, to more exotic systems like HUE Lights and Tesla cars. At the time of writing, there are 6500+ actions spread across 130 integration packs. It is Open Source, with a great community of maintainers. Something that makes StackStorm a great wiring tool to build automations integrating a wide breadth of domains.

But if you’ve taken a red pill and gone wholesale on AWS running serverless, deploying StackStorm may be not an option. Yet the catalog of reusable functions to integrate with commonly used services is an appealing idea. C’mon there should be 1000 Slack lambdas and 10,000 Twilio lambdas out there already, it doesn’t feel creative to write 10,001? Jealous to Azure with their great library of reusable connectors? Why can’t YOU grab something ready-to-use?

Now you can! Run StackStorm Exchange actions as lambda functions. Without StackStorm. Serverless and Stormless.

Consider a detailed tutorial “Building a community sign-up app with Serverless, StepFunctions, and StackStorm Exchange” to really get your hands dirty and try this out for real.

New in StackStorm 2.5: Real-time action output streaming

November 07, 2017
by Tomaz Muraus

StackStorm v2.5.0 has been released recently. In addition to Inquiries, it includes another widely requested feature – real-time output of actions.

Real-time action output streaming allows users to see any output produced by an action in real-time.

This makes troubleshooting and debugging actions much easier and faster. It is especially handy in environments where StackStorm is used as a CI / CD tool and for long running actions (do you have a long running action which builds and installs a software package and you want to see the progress in real-time? Now that and a lot more is possible).

Prior to this release, it was only possible to see the output once the action has finished (well, there were some workarounds which involved using “tail” command, but those workarounds had many limitations and issues).
