Buildout recipe to install a buildout

Project Description

Used to run a sub-buildout in a buildout. Example:

recipe = infrae.subversion
urls = .

recipe = infrae.buildout
path = ${cms:location}
config = profiles/test-instance.cfg
merge-bin = True

The cms part fetch buildout files, here from a SVN. You can use infrae.paster to create a buildout tree using a paster template.

The cms-build part runs buildout on the cms part:

  • The path option determines which parts to depends on, and which path to use. This is important to use the ${cms:location} because this says to buildout that the cms-build parts depends on the cms one. This parameter is required.
  • The config option tells which configuration file to use in the path. By default it will buildout.cfg, but you can use safely profiles/something.cfg (buildout directory is configured to use the path folder to run himself).
  • The merge-bin option tells if the generated scripts of the sub-buildout should end up in the same directory than the current one. The default is False.


The sub-buildout is run in the main parts directory in this sample. If this sub-buildout contains data (in a var folder for example), they will end-up in the same part directory than the sub-buildout (useless specific configuration in this one). This implies if you update your main buildout and the main parts directory is deleted, your data would be lost.
