A caching helper for Henrietta which fetches eggs from various sources.
- zcat for catting GZIP-files to stdout.
- bzcat for catting BZIP2-files to stdout.
- A semi-modern tar. It should accept the "xf -" switches to mean "extract the tar file which is offered on stdin". It should also allow extended GNU tarfiles, as some eggs include filenames longer than 64 characters. Most tar implementations do.
This egg installs a small program called henrietta-cache which reads a file containing egg-to-URI mappings. These URIs are expected to resolve to a so-called "release-info" file, which provides further instructions on how to fetch actual releases of the egg.
These releases are downloaded into a caching directory, which can then be served by henrietta for use by chicken-install.
Henrietta-cache can be invoked as follows:
henrietta-cache [-h] [-c|-cache-dir CACHEDIR] [-e|-egg-list EGGLIST] [-i|-init-file INITFILE]
The CACHEDIR points at the directory in which to place the cached files. It defaults to "cache". It will automatically create a subdirectory for each egg in the list and create a subdirectory called "tags" underneath those, in which it creates one directory for each release. This structure is used because it is expected by henrietta, and may change in the future.
The EGGLIST points to a file containing the list of eggs to fetch. It may be either a filename or an HTTP(S) URI.
The INITFILE is a file which will be loaded before starting the download process. This can be used to set handlers on the hooks, as documented below.
Hooks[parameter] (download-release-success-hook [SUCCESS-HOOK])
This is a hook you can register to run some code whenever a full release of an egg has been successfully downloaded.
SUCCESS-HOOK is a procedure of two arguments: the egg name and the release version (both strings).[parameter] (download-release-error-hook [ERROR-HOOK])
This is a hook you can register to run some code whenever a full release of an egg has failed to download.
ERROR-HOOK is a procedure of three arguments: the egg name, the release version and the error message on the exception that was thrown when the failure happened (all three are strings).[parameter] (download-release-info-file-error-hook [ERROR-HOOK])
This is a hook you can register to run some code whenever the download of the release-info file of an egg failed.
ERROR-HOOK is a procedure of three arguments: the egg name, the URI-string of the release-info file's location and the error message on the exception that was thrown when the failure happend (all three are strings).
- 0.4 - Use tar instead of pax, as it won't accept extended GNU tar files (and ustar archives have crippling limitations on maximum file length). Thanks to Alaric Snell-Pym for pointing out this problem. Make downloads more robust against failure by downloading/extracting to a tempdir and moving only when everything is alright.
- 0.3 - Fix URI encoding bug in template replacement of location strings. Add initialisation file and hooks for error notification scripts (thanks to Moritz Heidkamp).
- 0.2.3 - Fix bug introduced in 0.2.2 that caused an extra directory level in the hierarchy under the tagname.
- 0.2.2 - Fix for moving files across filesystems
- 0.2.1 - Ensure paths are always treated as directories, fix bug with Apache CGI output from pseudo-meta-egg-info
- 0.2 - Add files-list type
- 0.1.1 - Improved error reporting. (Thanks to Felix Winkelmann)
- 0.1 - Initial release
