Polls the API until a package filename is found.

Project description



packagecloud-poll repeatedly polls the API, looking for a specific package filename to appear. It is intended to be used in continuous integration/continuous deployment pipelines, where we want to block something until we are sure a package has been uploaded and is available before continuing onwards.


pip install packagecloud-poll


You must set a PACKAGECLOUD_TOKEN environment variable before you can run packagecloud-poll. See the packagecloud API documentation for instructions on how to generate a token.

export PACKAGECLOUD_TOKEN=deadbeefdeadbeefdeadbeefdeadbeefdeadbeefdeadbeef


Sample invocation:

packagecloud-poll --user my_user --repo my_repo_name --type deb --distro ubuntu --distro_version precise --arch amd64 --pkg_name myorg-stuff --filename myorg-stuff_v5.3_precise_amd64.deb

Run packagecloud-poll --help for detailed help.

Developing creates the packagecloud-poll command. When running from source, execute instead.

./ --help
