BagIns - BagIt Library in Go

This is a library for working with BagIt <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BagIt>_ hierarchal file packages.

It uses the Go Language <http://golang.org/>_ to leverage its speed and concurrency features to take advantage of manipulating bags in a cloud based enviorment.

I'm fairly new to the Go Language so excuse the prototype nature of the code in general.

GoDocs For This Project: http://godoc.org/github.com/APTrust/bagins

Installation

This package is "go get-able" so simply import the package via 'github.com/APTrust/bagins' or use the go get command directly as follows::

go get github.com/APTrust/bagins

Modifying The Code

To keep this project "go get-able" you will need to create the top level directories under your go source directory and then checkout the code into it like so::

Switch to your Go source directory:

cd $GOPATH/src

Create the parent directories:

mkdir -p github.com/APTrust

Switch to the directory you just created:

cd github.com/APTrust

Checkout the source code via git:

git clone https://github.com/APTrust/bagins.git

Usage

The Library is still under development, there is basic code for formatting and writing Manifest and Tag files as well as utilities for file checksumming files. Soon I'll tie it all together with a basic bag creation code. I'll post examples of it here when complete.

Command Line Executable

This library includes a command line executable in the directory github.com/APtrust/bagins/bagmaker

Assuming you have checked out the code to your GOPATH, to build and compile this just execute::

>go install $GOPATH/src/github.com/APTrust/bagins/bagmaker/bagmaker.go

If you have GOBIN set this will deposite a compile file called bagmaker into your GOBIN directory.

Usage: ./bagmaker -dir -name -payload [-algo ]

Flags:

-algo <value> Checksum algorithm to use.  md5, sha1, sha224, sha256, 
              sha512, or sha384.

-dir <value> Directory to create the bag.

-name <value> Name for the bag root directory.

-payload <value> Directory of files to parse into the bag
