Tools for Debian/Ubuntu Launchpad

Project description

Launchpad tools

Build Status codecov Code style: black PyPi Version GitHub stars

Some tools for easy submission to launchpad.


All options are documented under launchpad-submit -h.

Sometimes, you may want to submit a source package with a Debian configuration that is available somewhere else. This may help setting up a nightly submission process. As an example, take the nightly submission script for a Mixxx PPA.

#!/bin/sh -ue

TMP_DIR=$(mktemp -d)
cleanup() { rm -rf "$TMP_DIR"; }
trap cleanup EXIT

git -C "$CACHE" pull || git clone "" "$CACHE"
git clone --shared "$CACHE" "$ORIG_DIR"

VERSION=$(grep "define MIXXX_VERSION" "$ORIG_DIR/src/defs_version.h" | sed "s/[^0-9]*\([0-9][\.0-9]*\).*/\1/")
FULL_VERSION="$VERSION~$(date +"%Y%m%d%H%M%S")"

git -C "$CACHE" pull || git clone "git://" "$CACHE"
rsync -a "$CACHE/debian" "$ORIG_DIR"
