ZC Buildout recipe for setting up Riak.

Project Description

zc.buildout recipe for downloading and installing Riak.

[![Build Status](](

see src/biodec/recipe/biodec/README.txt


Code from package has been used as a starting point.

A brief documentation

This recipe takes a number of options:

The path where to find the erlc command (default = find it in your path).
The URL to download the Riak source distribution.
Prefix path (default = <buildout directory>).
Optional string passed as cookie to the erl runtime (-setcookie)


We will define a buildout template used by the recipe:

>>> buildout_cfg = """
... [buildout]
... parts = riakbuild
... offline = true
... [riakbuild]
... recipe = biodec.recipe.riak:build
... url =
... """

We’ll start by creating a buildout:

>>> import os.path
>>> write('buildout.cfg', buildout_cfg)

Running the buildout gives us:

>>> print system(buildout)
Installing riakbuild.
==> rel (compile)
==> riakbuild (compile)
Compiled src/etop_txt.erl
Re-run buildout:
>>> print system(buildout)
Updating riakbuild.
