NAME
kgb-client - relay commits to KGB servers SYNOPSIS
kgb-client --conf /path/to/config [other-option ...] kgb-client --uri http://some.server:port/service --password password --repo-id repository --timeout timeout-in-seconds --single-line-commits off|forced|auto --status-dir directory kgb-client option... /svn/repo revision kgb-client option... old-rev new-rev ref-name DESCRIPTION
kgb-client is the client counterpart of kgb-bot(1). Intented usage is as a hook in your version control system, executed after the repository gets updated. It analyzes the commit(s) and then relays the information about the repository, branch, author, modified files and change log to the KGB server, whch will show it on IRC. CONFIGURATION
--conf configuration file Specifies the path to kgb-client configuration file. Configuration options (except --conf) may be specified both in the configuration file and on the command line. Usually you want to have all the options in a configuration file, because having passwords on the command line is insecure. The configuration file also gives more control, for example it supports multple servers and multiple ways of detection of branch and module names. The configration file is in YAML format. Unless noted otherwise, all the options below can be used on the command line if prepended with two dashes. An example configuration file is shipped with the distribution. repository type Specifies the type of the repository kgb-client shall be working with. Currently defaults to "svn". repo-id repository name Short repository identifier. Will be used for identifying the repository to the KGB daemon, which will also use this for IRC notifications. Mandatory. uri URI URI of the KGB server. Something like "http://some.server:port". Mandatory. proxy URI URI of the SOAP proxy. If not given, it is the value of the uri option, with "?session=KGB" added. password password Password for authentication to the KGB server. timeout seconds Timeout for server communication. Default is 15 seconds, as we want instant IRC and commit response. servers Only available in the configuration file. An array of servers, each described using uri, proxy, password and timeout options. When several servers are configured, kgb-client chooses one randomly. If a given server times out or there is another problem with communication, kgb-client tries another server. The top-level uri, proxy, password and timeout options are treated as describing an extra server to the servers described in servers array. The password and timeout options default too the top-level options of the same name. single-line-commits off|forced|auto Request different modes of commit message processing: off No processing is done. The commit message is printed as was given, with each line in a separate IRC message, blank lines omitted. This is the only possible behaviour in versions before 1.14. forced Only the first line is sent to IRC, regardles of whether it is followed by a blank line or not. auto If the first line is followed by an empty line, only the first line is sent to IRC and the rest is ignored. This is the default since version 1.14. status-dir directory With this option, kgb-client tries to contact the last server that was successfuly contacted first. The directory is used to store the information about the last contacted server. verbose Makes the whole process more verbose. Branches and modules Sometimes development is done in multiple branches. Simetimes, a project consists of multiple sub-projects or modules. It is nice to have the module and branc highlighted in notifications. There are two options to help determining the module and branch names from a list of changes. These options are mainly useful when using Subversion. Git commits carry implicit branch information and chances are that sub-projects use separate Git repositories. branch-and-module-re A list of regular expressions that serve for detection of branch and module of commits. Each item from the list is tried in turn, until an item is found that matches all the paths that were modified by the commit. Regular expressions must have two captures: the first one giving the branch name, and the second one giving the module name. All the paths that were modified by the commit must resolve to the same branch and module in order for the branch and module to be transmitted to the KGB server. Hint: use () to match empty branch or module if the concept is not applicable. Like: branch-and-module-re: - "^/(trunk)/([^/]+)/" - "^()/(website)/" # either a sub-project in /trunk/<subproject> # or a file in the website, which is matched like a module branch-and-module-re-swap 1 If you can only provide the module name in the first capture and the branch name in the second, use this option to signal the fact to kgb-client. The setting is in effect for all patterns. branch-and-module-re-swap: 1 branch-and-module-re: - "^/([^/]+)/(trunk|tags)/" - "^/(website)/()" # either a sub-project in /<subproject> # or a file in the website, which is matched like a module module name In the case of sub-projects that use separate Git repositories, you may want to use explicit module name. Having this on the command line would allow for all the sub-project to share the configuration file (same repo-id) while still having sub-project-specific notifications. SUPPORTED VERSION CONTROL SYSTEMS
Subversion Installation requires calling kgb-client with two command line arguments: path to the subversion repository This is the physical path to the Subversion repository. Something like /srv/svn/my-repo revision This is the revision number of the commit, that has triggered the hook. Both these arguments are supplied to the standard Subversion post-commit hooks. Git kgb-client shall be installed as a post-recieve hook. Something along the following shall do: #!/bin/sh /path/to/kgb-client --git-reflog - --conf /path/to.conf ... --git-reflog - will make kgb-client read the reflog information from standard input as any standard Git post-receive hook. There are other ways to give kgb-client information about Git reflog, mostly useful when debugging on in unusual situations. See App::KGB::Client::Git. SEE ALSO
