anitya is a project to monitor upstream releases in a distro.
Anitya is a release monitoring project.
Its goal is to regulary check if a project has made a new release. Originally developed within Fedora, this project creates tickets on the Fedora bugzilla when a new release is available.
Here are some preliminary instructions about how to stand up your own instance of anitya. We’ll use a virtualenv and a sqlite database and we’ll install our dependencies from the Python Package Index (PyPI). None of these are best practices for a production instance, but they will do for development.
First, set up a virtualenv:
$ sudo yum install python-virtualenv $ virtualenv anitya-env $ source anitya-env/bin/activate
Issueing that last command should change your prompt to indicate that you are operating in an active virtualenv.
Next, install your dependencies:
(anitya-env)$ pip install -r requirements.txt
Create the database, by default it will be a sqlite database located at /var/tmp/anitya-dev.sqlite:
(anitya-env)$ python createdb.py
If all goes well, you can start a development instance of the server by running:
(anitya-env)$ python runserver.py
