Create a plugin

To generate a plugin, you need to install jinja2, either by pip or via your package manager:

$ sudo pip install jinja2

or

$ sudo (apt-get|yum) install python-jinja2

Then

$ make new-plugin

To execute a plugin, you need to install the library shinkenplugins:

$ sudo pip install shinkenplugins

or for Debian and Ubuntu:

$ sudo apt-get install lib-shinkenplugins

Update the Debian packaging of a plugin/pack

After modifying files under debian/, you can add an entry in the changelog by doing:

$ author=$(git log -n 1 --format=%aN)
$ export DEBFULLNAME=$author
$ email=$(git log -n 1 --format=%ae)
$ export DEBEMAIL=$email
$ msg=$(git log -n 1 --format=%s)
$ version=$(date +%Y.%m.%e.%H.%M)
$ dch $msg --no-auto-nmu --newversion $version

Build the Debian source packages

make packages

This will build the .orig.tar.gz, .debian.tar.gz, .dsc, and .changes files.

Push the debian source packages to Open Build Service

make obs

This will checkout the OBS project and commit the new debian source package files. You must be a maintainer on the OBS project to successfully run this command. Travis has the permissions to do it.
