DebsFromRepos

Debian packages availables at a spcific repository

Description

This is a small lib to get the names and descriptions for the availables packages at specific (or group of them) Debian/Ubuntu repository.

The description can be obtained in a specific language.

Installation

(sudo) gem install debsfromrepos

Usage

You have a example of how the library works at the examples/ directory:

examples/repo2json.rb

Basicaly you require the lib

require 'debsfromrepos'

and ask for the right Packages.gz url for a specific Debian/Ubuntu server

server = "http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu"
suite = "oneiric"
component = "main"
language = "es"
repository = DebsFromRepos::ListUrl.new(server, suite, component, language)
packages_url = repository.get_packages_url
# => "http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/oneiric/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz"
translations_url = repository.get_translations_url
# => "http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/oneiric/main/i18n/Translation-es.gz"

you also can change the suite or component

repository.component = 'universe'
# => "http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/oneiric/universe/binary-i386/Packages.gz"

or ask for another language

repository.get_translations_url('it')
# => "http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/oneiric/main/i18n/Translation-it.gz"

and then get all the packages' names and descriptions on that component of that suite of that repository:

pkgs = DebsFromRepos::Packages.new(packages_url, translations_url)
pkgs.packages['zlib1g']
# => "Biblioteca de compresión, ejecutables"
