A meta package-manager to deploy projects on UNIX Systemes sponsored by Makina Corpus.

Project description

  • minitage is a meta-package manager. It’s a package manager which install packages with the help of other build systems.

  • Its goal is to help you to deploy projects in a standardised layout and to build things quickly and in a simple manner by putting in environment all configurations. like:

    • cflags
    • ldflags
    • $PATH
  • The main documentation is not there but on http://www.minitage.org, please go there for further instructions.

QuickStart with minitage

Check your Python

You need a python with setuptools, zlib, bz2 and ssl support.

Try that in your interpretery:

>>> import tarfile
>>> import zipfile
>>> import bz2
>>> import _ssl
>>> import zlib
>>> import setuptools
>>>

If you do not have that, you can give a try to my pyboostrapper that bootstrap a python somewhere:

wget http://git.minitage.org/git/minitage/shell/plain/PyBootstrapper.sh
chmod -x PyBootstrapper.sh
bash ./PyBootstrapper.sh /path/to/pythonPrefix

Using virtualenv

You ‘d better to use virtualenv , minitage fits well with it.

virtualenv is a tool that allow you to create isolated Python environments.

Here is how to set up an environment with it:

  • Install virtualenv:

    easy_install virtualenv #(maybe use sudo ;))
    
  • Install minitage prefix:

    virtualenv --no-site-packages  ~/minitage
    
  • activate it:

    source ~/minitage/bin/activate
    

KEEP IN MIND THAT YOU MUST ACTIVATE VIRTUALENV AT ANY TIME YOU USE IT.

minitage installation

The whole doc is not there but on http://www.minitage.org/installation.html.

Minitage is a classical python egg, you can get it throught easy_install.

To install minitage in a stable version, follow those steps:

  • Install minitage:

    easy_install -U mercurial minitage.core
    
  • Sync its packages (all its minilays in minitage terminology).:

    minimerge -s
    

Syncing packages

To sync all your minilays

If you need to, fire your virtualenv:

source ~/minitage/bin/activate

Sync:

minimerge -s

Integrate your existing python project base on buildout

Idea is to make buildoutrs to all buildouts in the top directory to wrap the underlying minitage environment.

We will also make a a minilay with minibuilds pointing to those wrappers.

This will help you fastly integrating minitage !

If you project layout is something like:

.
| base.cfg
| buildout.cfg
| otherbuildout.cfg
| foo
     |  bar

You want it to be installed a a zope project, do the following:

cd ~/minitage
. bin/activate
mkdir -p zope
SCM clone URL zope/yourproject
minitagify -d zope/yourproject
. Wraping ~/minitage/zope/yourpoject/otherbuildout.cfg (minitage27.cfg) in ~/minitage/zope/yourpoject/minitage.otherbuildout.cfg->~/minitage/zope/yourpoject/.minitagecfg/otherbuildout.cfg
. Wraping ~/minitage/zope/yourpoject/buildout.cfg (minitage27.cfg) in ~/minitage/zope/yourpoject/minitage.buildout.cfg->~/minitage/zope/yourpoject/.minitagecfg/buildout.cfg
. Wraping ~/minitage/zope/yourpoject/base.cfg (minitage27.cfg) in ~/minitage/zope/yourpoject/minitage.base.cfg->~/minitage/zope/yourpoject/.minitagecfg/base.cfg
. Wroted minibuild yourpoject-otherbuildout in ~/minitage/minilays/05d75df848d13853578095d08f5c7253a/yourpoject-otherbuildout
. Wroted minibuild yourpoject-buildout in ~/minitage/minilays/05d75df848d13853578095d08f5c7253a/yourpoject-buildout
. Wroted minibuild yourpoject-base in ~/minitage/minilays/05d75df848d13853578095d08f5c7253a/yourpoject-base
. Wroted minibuild yourpoject in ~/minitage/minilays/05d75df848d13853578095d08f5c7253a/yourpoject

Yu will then have to use

  • minitage.buildout.cfg for buildout.cfg
  • minitage.otherbuildout.cfg for otherbuildout.cfg

Like:

cd zope/yourproject
python bootstrap.py
bin/buildout -vvvvvvvNc minitage.buildout.cfg
bin/buildout -vvvvvvvNc minitage.otherbuildout.cfg
