[ros-users] Simple script to install the ROS indigo

I second ansible.  In fact, I think that I forked my playbook from Mike.

It's also convenient for standing up vagrant virtual machines quickly,
especially in test environments.

Thanks for sharing!

Another option you might consider would be using a configuration management
system such as Ansible or Puppet. These systems can get (and keep) a target
system in a particular state more deterministically and reliably than a
shell script can.

Finally, what we do is just use a preseeded installer ISO (based on Ubuntu
Minimal) that sets up the package sources and installs the ROS base as part
of the Ubuntu install itself— because most/all of the setup is preseeded
away, there's very little scope for error. At present, this is proprietary,
but there's not a lot to it; if there's general interest, we would consider
opening it up as a generic "ROS ISO" generator suitable for setting up
robot PCs or developer workstations.
