Mutagen Helper to help you manage sessions

Project description

Mutagen Helper

Latest Version MIT License Build Status Coveralls

Mutagen Helper allow you to define Mutagen synchronisation sessions inside a configuration file on directories you want to synchronise. Created sessions are marked with a session name and a project name that makes them easier to manage.

About mutagen 0.10+

Mutagen was written on earlier version of Mutagen. Mutagen 0.10+ brings a new Orchestration feature that makes most mutagen-helper features redundant, so you should first give a try to this new feature.

I'm still working with Mutagen's author Jacob Howard to embed as much as mutagen-helper use cases as possible into mutagen's core (mutagen-io/mutagen#109).

Install

or

  • run pip install mutagen-helper on Python 3.6+

Quickstart

  • Install mutagen as usual (version 0.9+), and make it available in the user PATH or define MUTAGEN_HELPER_MUTAGEN_BIN environment variable to the path of the mutagen binary as an alternative (ie: C:\tools\mutagen\mutagen-helper.exe).

  • Create .mutagen-helper.yml file inside some local directory you want to synchronize and set beta property to the destination of the synchronisation.

project_name: 'helper-project' # Optional, it will fallback to directory name if not defined
beta: 'root@192.168.1.100:/home/vagrant/projects' # Beta side of the synchronisation
options: # Options can be provided
  sync-mode: two-way-resolved
  default-file-mode-beta: 664
  default-directory-mode-beta: 775
  default-owner-beta: vagrant
  default-group-beta: vagrant
  ignore-vcs: True
  ignore:
    - node_modules/
    - vendor/

Mutagen Helper appends the project_name to the beta URL. It means that this directory will be synchronised to /home/vagrant/projects/helper-project.

  • Run mutagen-helper up from the project directory.

  • Run mutagen-helper list to see which sessions are running. Output of this command match mutagen list output, but as JSON and with additional synchronisation helper properties like Project name, Session name and Configuration file.

  • Run mutagen-helper --help to check other available commands.

Usage

Usage: __main__.py [OPTIONS] COMMAND [ARGS]...

  Main command group :return:

Options:
  --version      Show the version and exit.
  -v, --verbose  Add more output
  -s, --silent   No output at all
  -h, --help     Show this message and exit.

Commands:
  up      Creates and starts a new synchronization sessions
  down    Permanently terminates synchronization sessions
  pause   Pauses synchronization sessions
  flush   Flush synchronization sessions
  resume  Resumes paused or disconnected synchronization sessions
  list    Lists existing synchronization sessions and their statuses

Multiple projects support

You may up multiple projects at the same time if all your projects lies in the same directory.

C:\workspace
    |- project1
        |- .mutagen-helper.yml
        |- ...
    |- project2
        |- .mutagen-helper.yml
        |- ...
    |- project3
        |- .mutagen-helper.yml
        |- ...
mutagen-helper up --path C:\workspace

or

cd C:\workspace
mutagen-helper up

or

export MUTAGEN_HELPER_PATH=C:\workspace
mutagen-helper up

Those command will create all mutagen sessions defined in .mutagen-helper.yml of each subdirectories of C:\workspace.

Advanced configuration

You may use environment variable expansion, with ${VARIABLE} syntax like in bash. Your can set a default value if variable is not defined with ${VARIABLE:-default}.

Your may also define multiple sessions under a sessions key. Properties defined at root of the configuration file will be inherited by each session.

You may also give names to sessions for them to be identified with precision, but keep in mind that changing name on running sessions could cause problem as they are used to find out the real mutagen session id.

beta: '${DOCKER_DEVBOX_MUTAGEN_BETA:-root@192.168.1.100:/home/vagrant/projects}'
sessions:
  - options:
      name: 'partial-watch-alpha'
      sync-mode: two-way-resolved
      default-file-mode-beta: 664
      default-directory-mode-beta: 775
      default-owner-beta: vagrant
      default-group-beta: vagrant
      ignore-vcs: True
      ignore:
        - node_modules/
        - vendor/
      max-staging-file-size: 1MB
      watch-mode-beta: no-watch
  - options:
      name: 'full-no-watch'
      sync-mode: two-way-resolved
      default-file-mode-beta: 664
      default-directory-mode-beta: 775
      default-owner-beta: vagrant
      default-group-beta: vagrant
      max-staging-file-size: 1MB
      watch-mode: no-watch

It's possible to define a single configuration file for multiple projects with projects key. It supports the same inheritance mechanism as with sessions.

beta: '${DOCKER_DEVBOX_MUTAGEN_BETA:-root@192.168.1.100:/home/vagrant/projects}'
options:
  sync-mode: two-way-resolved
  default-file-mode-beta: 664
  default-directory-mode-beta: 775
  default-owner-beta: vagrant
  default-group-beta: vagrant
projects:
  - path: C:\workspace\project1
  - path: C:\workspace\project2
  - path: C:\workspace\project3
    beta: beta: 'vagrant@192.168.1.100:/home/vagrant/projects'
    options:
      sync-mode: two-way-resolved
      default-file-mode-beta: 600
      default-directory-mode-beta: 700

Automatic configuration

You can automate the configuration of a directory containing many project. Create a .mutagen-helper.yml file inside the parent of those directories, and set auto_configure.

auto_configure: True
C:\workspace
    |- .mutagen-helper.yml  # Auto configure YAML file
    |- project-dev1  # Projects without any mutagen-helper configuration file
        |- ...
    |- project-dev2
        |- ...
    |- project-dev2-stage
        |- ...
    |- project-prod1
        |- ...

This will create synchronisation projects for each subdirectory (project-dev1, project-dev2, project-dev2-stage and project-prod1).

You can set include and exclude to disable auto configure feature for some subdirectories only, and other property you can normally use on projects and sessions

beta: '${DOCKER_DEVBOX_MUTAGEN_BETA:-root@192.168.1.100:/home/vagrant/projects}'
auto_configure: 
  include: 
    - '*-dev*'
  exclude:
    - '*-stage'
options:
  sync-mode: two-way-resolved
  default-file-mode-beta: 644
  default-directory-mode-beta: 755
  default-owner-beta: vagrant
  default-group-beta: vagrant

this will create a synchronisation project for project-dev1 and project-dev2 (include has priority other exclude).

By default, if a configuration file is present in a project directory, it is still used to create the synchronisation project. You can ignore those configuration files with ignore_project_configuration to let auto configure create the synchronisation project on his own.

beta: '${DOCKER_DEVBOX_MUTAGEN_BETA:-root@192.168.1.100:/home/vagrant/projects}'
auto_configure: 
  ignore_project_configuration: True  # It can also be a list of glob for project names to ignore
options:
  sync-mode: two-way-resolved
  default-file-mode-beta: 644
  default-directory-mode-beta: 755
  default-owner-beta: vagrant
  default-group-beta: vagrant

Environment variables and default values

Some properties have default values, based on environment variables if defined.

  • alpha
    • MUTAGEN_HELPER_ALPHA environment variable, or
    • Directory when the .mutagen-helper.yml resides
  • beta:
    • MUTAGEN_HELPER_BETA environment variable, or
    • mandatory in the .mutagen-helper.yml
  • append_project_name_to_beta:
    • MUTAGEN_HELPER_APPEND_PROJECT_NAME_TO_BETA, or
    • True

MUTAGEN_HELPER_PATH environment variable can be set to a path to make mutagen-helper load configuration from this path by default instead of current working directory. (--path option can still be used)
