Options

These options can be added to your settings.py:

  • VCS_WATCH_CHECK_INTERVAL -- Interval in minutes, to check feeds for updated. In case if there is no any information about feed, it will be polled for updates with this frequency. If there are two or more commits already fetched, then, check interval will be interval between two latest commits, so that more actively developed projects will be polled more oftenly. Default value is 60 minutes.

  • VCS_WATCH_PID_DIR -- Directory, where to story pid file for jobs. Default value is '/tmp'.

  • VCS_POSTPROCESS_COMMIT -- This is a hook to manipulate with the commit after it was fetched from a repository, but before it is saved to the database. It should be a callable with two arguments - Repository object and Commit object. By default it extracts filetypes and saves them as commit tags with 'ft:' prefix.

TODO

  • Write a short Installation instruction.
  • Update this readme and describe more options.
  • Add check for valid and accessible URL before add it to database.
  • Add ability to edit or remove Repository.
  • Check if similar URL already exists.
