henrietta

Introduction

A program that serves eggs from a local tree or Subversion repository over HTTP.

Usage

Invoke henrietta on the command-line, like this:

 usage: henrietta [OPTION ...]
 
   -h   -help                    show this message
        -query QUERYSTRING       supply query-string on the command-line
        -remote REMOTEADDR       supply remote address on the command-line
   -l   -location LOCATION       install from given location (default: current directory)
   -t   -transport TRANSPORT     use given transport instead of default (#{*default-transport*})
        -username USER           set username for transports that require this
        -password PASS           set password for transports that require this

henrietta is intended to be used as a CGI program and takes a query string and remote address as arguments, either using the command-line options -query and -remote or by setting the QUERY_STRING and REMOTE_ADDR environment variables.

The query string should contain any of the following parameters:

name
specifies the name of the requested extension
version
specifies what version should be retrieved
tests
if non-empty, also include test-files in the retrieved data
list
just list all available extensions
listversions
list available versions for the extension given in name
mode
run in special mode, which may be meta or default.

meta mode will only retrieve the .meta (specification) file, default mode will retrieve the complete extension code.

Example CGI Script

#!/bin/sh

# change these to suitable values on your machine:
export HENRIETTA=/home/chicken/henrietta
export EGG_REPOSITORY=https://localhost/svn/chicken-eggs/release/4
export LOGFILE=/home/chicken/henrietta.log
export USERNAME=anonymous
export PASSWORD=

exec "$HENRIETTA" -l "$EGG_REPOSITORY" -t svn -username "$USERNAME" \
  -password "$PASSWORD" 2>>"$LOGFILE"
