I have been looking into trying to package a service for Start9 (standard notes). Being pretty knew to docker an all, I have been struggling a bit. I put some prompts into HARPA AI browser extension to try and help me through the process a bit. This is what I got.
Ok, if you can’t give me .s9pk file, give me all of the text I would put in it.
To package Standard Notes as a .s9pk file for Start9, you would need to create the necessary files and folder structure. Here’s the text you would put in the .s9pk file:
FROM standardnotes/syncing-server:latest EXPOSE 3000
id: com.standardnotes version: 1.0.0 name: Standard Notes description: Self-hosted Standard Notes server author: Your Name maintainer: Your Email Address website: https://standardnotes.com repository: https://github.com/standardnotes/syncing-server arch: amd64 os: linux dependencies: - docker startup_command: docker run -d --name standard-notes -p 3000:3000 standardnotes/syncing-server
- Other files: You would also need to include any other required files according to the Standard Notes self-hosting instructions. These may include configuration files, SSL certificates (if applicable), and any additional customizations or settings specific to your deployment.
Please note that the above information is a template, and you should modify it according to your specific requirements and configuration. Additionally, make sure you have the necessary licenses and permissions to package and distribute Standard Notes as a self-hosted service.
After creating and populating these files accordingly, you can package them into a .s9pk file using the packaging process mentioned in the Start9 documentation.
How acurate does this look? Does this open up a possible avenue to help speed along package development? Could Start9 create an automated (very alpha stage with many warnings that the tool is still in development) tool tool to walk us through the packaging process? It could use OpenAI (or maybe a self-hosted local AI for privacy) to power it. It could as you a series of questions (url of the docker file you would like to package, where certain directories need to be, what ports, etc., etc.) to help you build the file. It would then, as you go through the process, offer suggestions. For example, if you try and use port 22, that would be a bad idea and it would warn you. Or maybe you try and package a docker file with the wrong architecture. It would detect this and maybe suggest a different file.
I know that a lot of people find the idea of packaging a service very intimidating. A helpful tool that would explain each step in common language would be very helpful to speeding along the process of package development.
