A revision control independent dependency and sub-repository management package.
Dipr is a repository management tool meant to provide a revision control independent way of managing dependencies and sub-repositories. It is modeled strongly after guestrepo with numerous improvements to support multiple revision control systems and additional functionality.
A read-only repository that may be pulled and set to a specific revision but should not be modified as part of the root repo's code base.
A living part of the root repository and may change along with the contents of the root repository. Sub-repositories may be operated on using the bulk revision control commands below.
It has not been tested extensively across multiple revisions of these operating systems.
- Python >= 3.7
- gitpython >= 2.1
- ruamel-yaml >= 0.15
- git >= 2.0
- hg >= 4.0
Dipr is developed, tested, and built (pyinstaller) in a conda environment. See DEVELOPER.md for details.
Dipr is MIT licensed. See the LICENSE.md for details.
Dipr assumes that credentials are cached as appropriate for the revision control systems that will be used. Dipr does no provide any way to specify or store credential information for the dependencies and sub-repositories. To setup safe credential caching read some of the following:
Mercurial: Mercurial Keyring Extension
Implementation of the above may vary depending on platform (Windows, Linux, OSX). Be sure to read into the various options to make sure a secure one is chosen.
It is available via pip:
> pip install dipr
Or using the included setup.py:
> python setup.py install
All the available commands are documented in the built in command line help system:
> dipr -h
Dipr may act upon directories other than the current one:
> dipr -p "/path/to/the repo" status
Dependency and Sub-Repository Management
Initialize the current folder or repo with the dipr YAML files:
> dipr init
Add some repo sources:
> dipr sources add hg HGDEP1 http://example.com/hg/hgdep1 > dipr sources add git GITSUB1 http://example.com/git/gitsub1 > dipr depends add HGDEP1 Depends/HgDep1 > dipr subrepos add GITSUB1 SubRepos/GitSub1
Pull the repos into their folders:
> dipr pull
Update the repos to their specified revisions:
> dipr update
Check the status of the pulled repos:
> dipr status
Import Existing Dependencies or Sub-Repositories
> dipr init > dipr import submodules --clean > dipr pull > dipr update
> dipr init > dipr import guestrepos --clean > dipr pull > dipr update
Bulk revision management is available for both dependencies and sub-repositories.
Freeze repos at their current revision:
> dipr depends freeze
Upgrade repos to their latest tags:
> dipr depends upgrade --check <... list of available upgrades ...> > dipr depends upgrade > dipr update
Unfreeze repos to their latest revisions in the default branch:
> dipr depends unfreeze > dipr update
Set a repo to a specific revision:
> dipr depends rev --path Depends/HgDep1 --branch DevBranch > dipr update
Revision Control Commands
Bulk revision control commands can be executed on the root repo (Where .dipr folder is located) and all sub-repositories.
Commit root repo and all sub-repositories (adding or removing files as necessary):
> dipr rcs commit -m "A commit message." --add-remove
Tag just the sub-repositories:
> dipr rcs tag "Release_V1.1.1" -m "A release tag" --exclude-root
Push root repo and all sub-repositories to their upstream:
> dipr rcs push
Discard changes in root repo and all sub-repositories:
> dipr rcs discard
Changes in the dependencies may be discarded as well:
> dipr rcs discard --only-depends
Dipr Data Storage
All data for dipr is stored in the .dipr directory initialized via the
dipr init command. The data files are YAML
formatted and documented with examples of how to add or modify entries manually.
