@jollanza look at my blog post below.

I can't install ghost on my archarm anymore with ghost-cli... it fails because of SQlite3. and the AUR package is too way old to be useful.

any hints?

I personally like the minimal nature of having an on disk system, so I'm preferential to not running a full rdbms.

what about MySql (mariadb in case) instead of sqlite3? on raspbian it works well, but I wanna try on archarm... am I the only here that use a raspberry for ghost?

@RcrdBrt look at my comment below, the node ecosystem is so interlinked that ghost-cli and sqlite3 requires some 600 dependent packages. I feel like its better to figure out how to use something like nspawn to place this stuff in a container and let the node communities tools handle installation for you.

@dmeijboom have you tried packaging ghost-cli?

jollanza commented on 2017-12-13 14:18

this was a great pkg.

Yeah... their ghost-cli thing is a pretty large departure for an install. This is why I orphaned it. I felt bad too... because it was a really nice way to consume their software. I wanted to leave this package in a working state. As far as I know it still currently gives you a working installation for ghost.

I think this package should be renamed to ghost-legacy and if someone wants to dig in to figure out why the most recent legacy builds are not working then they could get it updated... right now its a couple releases behind.

I finally took the time to read their documentation and try to re-create the type of install that this package, I documented that here:

I'm sure I'm breaking some rules for how to install node based applications, which is why I threw it inside a container to begin with. I couldn't get over how installing "ghost-cli sqlite" via npm resulted in this:

+ ghost-cli@1.1.3
+ sqlite3@3.1.13
added 627 packages in 19.334s

To me that means that almost always we'll basically have to have throwaway containers for where the node dependencies are being created. Seems like such a mess if you're trying to me "minimal" with your package base.

I think this package shouldnt be updated. I'm going to package ghost-cli in a couple of days.
