Create and serve multiple Shaarlis (farm)

Example bash script (creates multiple shaarli instances and generates an HTML index of them)

set -o errexit
set -o nounset

accounts='bob john whatever username'

#clone multiple shaarli instances
if [ ! -d "$shaarli_base_dir" ]; then mkdir "$shaarli_base_dir"; fi[](.html)
for account in $accounts; do
    if [ -d "$shaarli_base_dir/$account" ];[](.html)
    then echo "[info] account $account already exists, skipping";[](.html)
    else echo "[info] creating new account $account ..."; git clone --quiet "$shaarli_repo_url" -b "$ref" "$shaarli_base_dir/$account"; fi[](.html)

#generate html index of shaarlis
htmlhead='<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "">
<!-- Minimal html template thanks to -->
<html lang="en">
        <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
        <title>My Shaarli farm</title>
        <style>body {font-family: "Open Sans"}</style>
    <h1>My Shaarli farm</h1>
    <ul style="list-style-type: none;">'


for account in $accounts; do accountlinks="$accountlinks\n<li><a href=\"$account\">$account</a></li>"; done
if [ -d "$shaarli_base_dir/index.html" ]; then echo "[removing old index.html]"; rm "$shaarli_base_dir/index.html" ]; fi[](.html)
echo "[info] generating new index of shaarlis"[](.html)
echo -e "$htmlhead $accountlinks $htmlfooter" > "$shaarli_base_dir/index.html"
echo '[info] done.'[](.html)
echo "[info] list of accounts: $accounts"[](.html)
echo "[info] contents of $shaarli_base_dir:"[](.html)
tree -a -L 1 "$shaarli_base_dir"

This script just serves as an example. More precise or complex (applying custom configuration, etc) automation is possible using configuration management software like Ansible
