Software Heritage Directory Loader

Project description


The Software Heritage Directory Loader is a tool and a library.

Its sole purpose is to walk a local directory and inject into the SWH dataset all unknown contained files from that directory structure.


The loader needs a configuration file in {/etc/softwareheritage | ~/.config/swh | ~/.swh}/loader/dir.yml.

This file should be similar to this (adapt according to your needs)?:

  cls: remote
    url: http://localhost:5002/


To run the loader, you can use either:

  • python3's toplevel
  • celery


Load directory directly from code or toplevel:

dir_path = '/home/storage/dir/'

# Fill in those
origin = {'url': 'some-origin', 'type': 'dir'}
visit_date = 'Tue, 3 May 2017 17:16:32 +0200'
revision = {
    'author': {'name': 'some', 'fullname': 'one', 'email': 'something'},
    'committer': {'name': 'some', 'fullname': 'one', 'email': 'something'},
    'message': '1.0 Released',
    'date': None,
    'committer_date': None,
    'type': 'tar',
    'metadata': {}
import logging

from swh.loader.dir.tasks import LoadDirRepository
l = LoadDirRepository()
l.run_task(dir_path=dir_path, origin=origin, visit_date=visit_date,
           revision=revision, release=None, branch_name='master')


To use celery, add the following entries in the {/etc/softwareheritage | ~/.config/swh | ~/.swh}/worker.yml` file:

  - swh.loader.dir.tasks
  - swh_loader_dir

cf. swh-core's documentation for more details.

You can then send the following message to the task queue:

from swh.loader.dir.tasks import LoadDirRepository

# Fill in those
origin = {'url': 'some-origin', 'type': 'dir'}
visit_date = 'Tue, 3 May 2017 17:16:32 +0200'
release = None
revision = {}
occurrence = {}

# Send message to the task queue
LoaderDirRepository().run(('/path/to/dir', origin, visit_date, revision, release, [occurrence]))
