Module for creating simple scripts reacting to fedmsg messages

Project description


Library for watching fedmsg messages and running arbitrary scripts in a nice way

Think of fedwatch as simple converter from fedmsg json messages into shell arguments for scripts.



To use fedwatch you will need to create a configuration file (by default read from /etc/fedwatch.conf) and scripts that are to be run when messages of interest arrive (by default /etc/fedwatch.d).

When interesting message arrives, fedmsg converts json data into arguments for shell scripts and runs each script in <em>script-dir</em> based on configuration. First argument is always topic so that scripts can handle different topics.

Real life example of configuration file:

[] arg1=msg/commit/username arg2=msg/commit/repo arg3=msg/commit/branch arg4=msg/commit/rev arg5=msg/commit/summary

Above configuration means fedwatch will be waiting for <em>git.receive</em> topic and will pass 6 arguments to any scripts in <em>script-dir</em>:

  1. (topic)

  2. FAS username of commiter

  3. repository (package) name

  4. branch name

  5. revision (SHA hash of commit)

  6. commit summary (1st line of git commit)
