Simple way of configuring port numbers as offsets from a base, for use in buildout scripts.

Project Description

Portmap buildout recipe

This package provides a buildout recipe to calculate TCP port offsets. This is useful when you are installing a stack of software, with multiple parts needing TCP port numbers.

The calculated values are provided as buildout parameters in the section for which this is the recipe.

For example:

recipe = isotoma.recipe.portmap
base = 8080
offsets =
    foo 0
    bar 1

recipe =
port = ${ports:foo}

recipe =
listen = tcp:${ports:bar}

This recipe will also produce an “INI file” called portmap.txt in the parts directory, which is useful for reference if nothing else.

Mandatory parameters

The base port to calculate offsets from
The map of names to offsets
