A simple merging package manager for microservices
![stir header image](stir-800x200.png?raw=true)
stir is a tool for synchronizing files between two or more systems — a general purpose package manager.
stir is a simple method of sharing source code libraries between microservices, fetching credential files (like Google’s service account credentials.json), or any other files.
## How It Works
- A package containing some files is created and placed on your private server.
- The package is then installed via stir install package-name wherever the files are needed.
- Merging - Multiple packages can be installed in the same directory.
- Easy - Creating and publishing packages is trivial.
- Secure - Packages can require authentication to update or fetch.
- Private - Host your own stir server.
- Microservices - No need to duplicate code between services.
### Sharing Source Code
Project bar depends on libraries maintained in project foo’s git repository.
- From foo’s git repository, in a directory that will be the package root, create your package.
- stir upsert foolibs -p “**.py”
- This will find all files in the current that match **.py (** is the convention for recursive matching).
- From foo’s git repository, run stir publish foolibs. This will bundle the package (foolibs-0.0.1.zip) and push it to the server.
- When working in the bar project, fetch the latest foolibs package.
- stir install foolibs
- If foolibs is not installed, or an older version, this will pull the most recent foolibs package from your stir server and install it in foolibs/.
- Add to your deployment pipeline. For example, in your Dockerfile:
- RUN pip install stir && (cd /app/bar && stir -y install foolibs)
