What is Nova?
Nova is a way to set up software on computers in a definite and consistant process. Its goals are to be cross-platform compatible, easy to use and understand, and powerful.
Great! How do I get started?
It’s not ready yet. It’s still early in development, and there are a few things that need tweaking. As of right now, it’s 100% documented, and completely written in Ruby. I have marked things that need to be done with a
@todo tag. Go check it out if you want. There are a few things I plan on adding to Nova before I release it.
I came up with Nova as a name because I couldn’t think of anything better. Turns out, it actually fits. The code to set up a piece of software is called a
Star, a server with stars is called a
Cluster, and (if applicable) the server to manage Clusters is called a
Axis, I haven’t made up my mind which).
Nova is licensed under the MIT License, which can be found here.
