Sugar DS reader for backup analysis

Project Description

Datastore is a simple tool written to parse sugar metadata files from backuped XO archives in a given folder.


To install the datastore_reader lib, you need python and easy_install tool. Just in case, you can download the easy_install init script here:

… and install it:

$ python

You should now be able to easy_install the datastore_reader as follow:

$ easy_install datastore_reader


The first datastore_reader entry point is called moulinette. It extract and parse metadata from backups to csv files.

By default, archives should be in a sub-folder named data in the current folder, ex:


All archives should have the .tar.bz2 extension. Here is the command to trigger the first reader application:

$ moulinette

At the end, you should find 2 new folders in the data floder:


In tmp sub-folder we have the extracted files from the parsing process. All files are re-extracted each time and the tmp folder can be removed after.

In the out folder we find the .csv results of the moulinette script.
