Griffon Artifact Portal
This is the code for http://artifacts.griffon-framework.org. You can use this application to setup a custom Remote Artifact repository that can serve artifacts locally to your organization.
This application was developed using Grails 2.0.1 and makes use of several plugins. You'll need a persistent database (such as PostgreSQL or MySQL) for running the portal in production mode.
grails-app/conf/Config.groovy and tweak the following configuration
settings according to your needs
The portal stores zip files in two different directories. These directories should be durable and backed up regularly. Make sure to point the following properties to more appropriate locations
packages.store.dir = '/tmp/griffon-artifact-portal/packages' releases.store.dir = '/tmp/griffon-artifact-portal/releases'
The portal has the option to send announcements via Twitter whenever a release
is uploaded. For this to work you have to configure a Twitter account; follow
the instructions found at the Twitter4j plugin. Once the tokens have been
added to the configuration, disable the Twitter4jController and switch to true
Email templates are located in
grails-app/views/email. Feel free to make any
adjustments necessary. You must configure mail settings as described by the
In order to publish artifacts via SCP you must configure the SSH access port and the default key storage. These properties are set by default to the following values
sshd.port = 2222 sshd.keystorage = 'artifact-portal.ser'
Should you wish to disallow the publication of snapshot releases then set the following flag to false
allow.snapshots = false
Check if there's a newer version of the
GeoLiteCity.dat file provided by Maxmind.
This file is used to resolve download stats per country. The application already bundles
this file however chances are it may be outdated.
Lastly, don't forget to update
Config.groovy. It should
point to the URL from which you'll serve the portal. Update this setting if
deploying a WAR in production mode.
First you should run the application and configure an initial admin account:
grails -Dinitial.admin.password=mypasswd prod run-app
mypasswd as the password for the
admin account in the production
database. You can either continue to run the application in production mode or
quit to later package it in a war and deploy it to an application server.
