Build Lights Client (Python)

A Python build lights client that can receive build notifications from a notification server connected to a build server.

Installation

This details the steps for a Debian-based system, but it should be fairly easy to figure out the steps for a RedHat-based distro.

Dependencies

  • Python 2.7 or newer
  • sudo apt-get install python-dev
  • sudo apt-get install libudev-dev
  • sudo apt-get install libusb-dev
  • sudo apt-get install python-pip (or sudo easy_install pip)
  • sudo apt-get install python-pyudev (or sudo pip install pyudev)
  • Download pyusb
  • unzip and enter unzipped directory
  • sudo python setup.py install

Ensure that your firewall allows for inbound connections on port 9191 and outbound connections on port 9192.

Client

  • Export this repo to /usr/local/notifier_client
  • sudo cp /usr/local/notifier_client/51-blink1.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/
  • sudo chmod 755 /usr/local/notifier_client/src/whatsthatlight/notifier_client_console.py
  • sudo vi /usr/local/notifier_client/src/whatsthatlight/notifier_client.conf
  • Under the [client] section:
  • Change username to your build server username (not your SVN or Git username)
  • Change address to your public IP (do not use 0.0.0.0 as the IP is sent to the server for registration)
  • The pedantic ones can also copy notifier_client.conf to /etc/. If so, edit notifier_client_daemon.conf (below) so that the script can find this config file during start-up.
  • sudo vi /usr/local/notifier_client/src/whatsthatlight/logger.conf
  • Under [handler_rotatingFileHandler] set args=('/var/log/notifier_client.log',)
  • sudo cp /usr/local/notifier_client/src/whatsthatlight/notifier_client_daemon.conf /etc/init/
  • sudo initctl reload-configuration
  • sudo start notifier_client_daemon
  • sudo tail -f /usr/local/notifier_client/src/whatsthatlight/notifier_client.log

Mac OS X

Note: This is only a brief guidline until I've had time to test all of this properly.

  • Install the dependencies as for the Linux client, with the following exceptions:
  • There's no (direct) IOKit support in python, so don't install any of the udev packages. Instead, select the polling device monitor in notifier_client.conf.
  • libusb has to be installed using homebrew (or macports).
  • Install the software to /Library/LaunchDaemons/notifier_client/.
  • OS X does not use upstart for daemons, but LaunchDaemon. You need to create a /Library/LaunchDaemons/notifier_client/notifier_client.plist file, reload it with launchctl and start it with launchd.
