Etherpad is a collaborative text editor usable through a web browser. Documents can be edited by multiple people in real time, shared and exported in different formats.

This role can be used to deploy and configure Etherpad Lite, a NodeJS version of Etherpad, on a Debian/Ubuntu host. The application can use a MariaDB or SQLite database as a storage backend, and will be configured behind a Nginx proxy as a frontend.
