Repo layout
perl/ - Externally exposed perl code goes here
libs/ - Additional libraries
misc/ - For not-externally exposed perl code
../data - For persistent data (Also in env var OPENSHIFT_DATA_DIR)
deplist.txt - A list of perl modules required to run
.openshift/action_hooks/pre_build - Script that gets run every git push before the build
.openshift/action_hooks/build - Script that gets run every git push as part of the build process (on the CI system if available)
.openshift/action_hooks/deploy - Script that gets run every git push after build but before the app is restarted
.openshift/action_hooks/post_deploy - Script that gets run every git push after the app is restarted
Environment Variables
OpenShift provides several environment variables to reference for ease
of use. The following list are some common variables but far from exhaustive:
$ENV{'OPENSHIFT_APP_NAME'} - Application name
$ENV{'OPENSHIFT_GEAR_DIR'} - Application dir
$ENV{'OPENSHIFT_DATA_DIR'} - For persistent storage (between pushes)
$ENV{'OPENSHIFT_TMP_DIR'} - Temp storage (unmodified files deleted after 10 days)
When embedding a database using 'rhc app cartridge add', you can reference environment
variables for username, host and password:
To get a full list of environment variables, simply add a line in your
.openshift/action_hooks/build script that says "export" and push.
Notes about layout
Please leave perl, libs and data directories but feel free to create additional
directories if needed.
Note: Every time you push, everything in your remote repo dir gets recreated
please store long term items (like an sqlite database) in ../data which will
persist between pushes of your repo.
Adding module names to deplist.txt causes your remote OpenShift node to download
the required modules and install them.
