Create a graph for a(ll) FreeBSD port(s).

Project description

Started from an idea on twitter and used to reduce the dependencies of a port, here a python script to produce dependencies’ graph of a(ll) FreeBSD ports.


Using pip

pip install portgraph

Using FreeBSD pkg

pkg install py36-portgraph

Using FreeBSD ports

make -C /usr/ports/ports-mgmt/py-portgraph


portgraph produces a graph representing the dependencies needed for a given port or all ports.

Options are:

-h or --help: Show this help
-l my_dir or --localbase my_dir: Sets my_dir as the directory where ports are located (/usr/ports by default)
-p my_port or --port my_port: Sets my_port as the port to produce the graph (ports-mgmt/py-portgraph by default).
-b or --build: build-depends-list (if -b or -r is not present, -b is actived by default).
-r or --run: run-depends-list (if -b or -r is not present, -b is actived by default).
-f my_flavor or --flavor my_flavor: Sets the flavor for the port.
-c or --recursion: Sets the maximum recursion.
-u or --url: Adds a link to freshports.
-w or --with-pkg: Since pkg is always required, this is disabled  by default. You can enable it with this option.
-a or --all: Build a graph for each port
-v or --verbose: Print the port being traversed

The result is a svg and a graphviz file.


Using a specific local ports, like poudriere:

portgraph -l /usr/local/poudriere/ports/default

Most important arguments, the port:

portgraph -p ports-mgmt/portscout

` <>`__

Sets the flavor for the port:

portgraph -p databases/py-psycopg2 -f py36

` <>`__

portgraph -p databases/py-psycopg2 -f py27

` <>`__

You can define the depth of the dependencies to display

portgraph -p databases/pgmodeler -c 1

` <>`__

ports-mgmt/pkg is the god of all. Do you want to put it?

portgraph -p ports-mgmt/portscout -w

` <>`__

Run and build depends list

build-depends-list are blue and run-depends-list are red.

portgraph -p lang/python36 -rb -c 2 -u

` <>`__

Build all ports (accept all arguments except -p/–ports)

For freshports with only one dependency.

portgraph -a -c 1 -u

It can take a long time (880s on my desktop computer and produces 245M of files).

Note: examples were made on 2018-02-15. The results may differ depending on port updates.
