How to Build a Module in our Staging Infrastructure
The purpose of this document is to introduce you to messing around with the prototype tools the modularity working group has built.
This doc doesn't contain much explanation.. more of a step-by-step set of instructions to get you going. Read the other modularity pages for some insight on to what is going on and why. Ask in
Prepare your environment
These steps are here just to make your workstation talk to our development environment. They are not part of the workflow.
If you're a provenpackager...
Then proceed to the next step. If you're not a provenpackager, then ask in
#fedora-modularity for someone (threebean) to add you to the group in *staging* only.
This is because you need rights to the dist-git repo for individual modules, but that's too difficult to maintain while we do all of this development. It is just easier to add people to stg provenpackagers for the time being.
Copy your 'fedpkg' config to your homedir, for editing.
$ cp /etc/rpkg/fedpkg.conf ~/fedpkg-stg.conf
Customize that staging configuration file.
Repoint urls in that config to the staging environment.
$ sed -i 's/pkgs.fedoraproject/pkgs.stg.fedoraproject/' ~/fedpkg-stg.conf
And add the following line to the end of the file
Get our patched copy of pyrpkg so fedpkg knows about modules.
$ git clone https://pagure.io/forks/karsten/rpkg.git $ cd rpkg
And modify your
$PYTHONPATH to use this new location.
$ export PYTHONPATH=$(pwd)/src/.:$PYTHONPATH
Build a module
This is the actual workflow.
Go and clone a test module...
$ fedpkg -C ~/fedpkg-stg.conf co modules/testmodule $ cd testmodule
Try and build it
$ fedpkg -C ~/fedpkg-stg.conf module-build
This should fail, because the module has already been built.
Try bumping the release in the yaml file, committing, pushing, and building again.
Look for the results
Look for your module in the rida API (not very interesting yet)
$ sudo dnf install httpie $ http get https://modularity.fedorainfracloud.org:5000/rida/module-builds/ --verify no
Look for your module in the BPO at http://modularity.fedorainfracloud.org/modules/testmodule/
Look for your module in staging koji at http://koji.stg.fedoraproject.org
If anything goes wrong which it invariably will, look for logs at http://modularity.fedorainfracloud.org/modularity/logs/
Take a look at the other modules
We created repos for a number of them at http://pkgs.stg.fedoraproject.org/cgit/modules
Some have been worked on but others we haven't gotten around to fleshing out yet. Still lots to do!
