VectorLinux repo monitor daemon

This is a Twisted/INotify daemon for listening to changes in the repository filesystem tree. Repository metadata needs to be updated each time a change is made in a package. With the repository monitor we can automate these tasks.


$ python setup.py install


The install rutine will put service scripts in /etc/rc.d/rc.repomonitor

$ /etc/rc.d/rc.repomonitor {start|stop|restart}

The repository location is read from the VL_REPOSITORY_ROOT environment variable, which should be an absolute path.


We use Twisted's Trial module for tests, from the source top directory run

$ trial repomonitor
Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
