Pagure

Author:Pierre-Yves Chibon <pingou@pingoured.fr>

Pagure is a git-centered forge, python based using pygit2.

With pagure you can host your project with its documentation, let your users report issues or request enhancements using the ticketing system and build your community of contributors by allowing them to fork your projects and contribute to it via the now-popular pull-request mechanism.

Get it running

There are several options when it comes to a development environment. Vagrant will provide you with a virtual machine which you can develop on, or you can install it directly on your host machine.

Vagrant

For a more thorough introduction to Vagrant, see https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Vagrant.

An example Vagrantfile is provided as Vagrantfile.example. To use it, just copy it and install Vagrant:

$ cp Vagrantfile.example Vagrantfile
$ sudo dnf install ansible libvirt vagrant-libvirt vagrant-sshfs vagrant-hostmanager
$ vagrant up

The default Vagrantfile forwards ports from the host to the guest, so you can interact with the application as if it were running on your host machine.

Note

vagrant-hostmanager will automatically maintain /etc/hosts for you so you can access the development environment from the host using its hostname, which by default is pagure-dev.example.com. You can choose not to use this functionality by simply not installing the vagrant-hostmanager plugin, but if you want Pagure to provide valid URLs in the UI for git repositories, you will need to adjust Pagure's configuration found in ~/pagure.cfg on the guest.

Manually

  • Install the needed system libraries:

    sudo dnf install git python2-virtualenv libgit2-devel \
                     libjpeg-devel gcc libffi-devel redhat-rpm-config
    

    Note

    Do note the version of libgit2 that you install, for example in libgit2-0.23.4-1 you need to keep in mind the 0.23

    Note

    On Fedora 23 and earlier or on RHEL and derivative (CentOS, Scientific Linux) the package python2-virtualenv is named python-virtualenv

  • Retrieve the sources:

    git clone https://pagure.io/pagure.git
    cd pagure
    
  • Install dependencies

    • create the virtualenv:

      virtualenv pagure_env
      source ./pagure_env/bin/activate
      
    • Install the correct version of pygit2:

      pip install pygit2==<version of libgit2 found>.*
      

      So in our example:

      pip install pygit2==0.23.*
      
    • Install the rest of the dependencies:

      pip install -r requirements.txt
      
  • Create the folder that will receive the projects, forks, docs, requests and tickets' git repo:

    mkdir {repos,docs,forks,tickets,requests}
    
  • Copy and edit the alembic.ini file (especially the script_location key):

    cp files/alembic.ini .
    vim alembic.ini
    
  • Set the script_location to alembic, ie: the folder where the revisions are stored, relative to the location of the alembic.ini file.

  • Create the inital database scheme:

    python createdb.py --initial alembic.ini
    
  • Run it:

    ./runserver.py
    
  • To get some profiling information you can also run it as:

    ./runserver.py --profile
    

This will launch the application at http://127.0.0.1:5000

  • To run unit-tests on pagure

    • Install the dependencies:

      pip install -r tests_requirements.txt
      
    • Run it:

      ./runtests.sh
