Polkadot Collator Setup


This Request for Proposals is closed, meaning we are not looking for any more proposals on this topic at the moment.

Project Description 📄

This is meant as a companion repository to polkadot-validator-setup, which allows anyone to launch a validator node in an automated and secure fashion.

I would like to standardize (as much as possible) the process of spinning up new collator nodes for different parachains.

I understand it might be tricky to bundle all the parachain launch setups into one repository, but there are some ideas of how this can be tackled:

  1. Have a single collator ansible role, and each branch would correspond to a specific parachain
  2. Have multiple ansible roles, and the main.yml in the project root to coordinate which roles get deployed.

I would lean towards the second option. While it might lead to large repo size due to multiple collator setups (and multiple networks - the setup might be different on Kusama or Polkadot), it gives more flexibility to spin up multiple collators for independent chains without meddling with git branching too much.
