Hostnames

Hosted on

Administrative contact

activities AT sugarlabs DOT org

Sysadmins

For non-emergency calls, preferably send email to the administrative contact.

Notes

To add your activity bundle to aslo-v4 , you need to be a member of the sugardl group. Then, copy your bundle to /srv/activities-v4/bundles , for example:

 rsync dist/Pippy-17.xo user@sunjammer.sugarlabs.org:/srv/activities-v4/bundles/
 
 # optionally, generate the metadata and copy them to the same bundles directory
 # add a link to source code repository
 git config --get remote.origin.url > org.laptop.Pippy.git
 
 # get a list of authors of the activity
 git -P --log --pretty=format:"%an" > org.laptop.Pippy.log
 # copy it to sunjammer's bundles/metadata directory
 rsync org.laptop.Pippy.* user@sunjammer.sugarlabs.org:/srv/activities-v4/bundles/metadata/

A cron job will automatically rebuild the aslo-v4 and deploy it. Verify that your changes are deployed within 12 hours. TODO: , use a better tool to rebuild the source on detecting changes.

Deploy directory: /srv/www-sugarlabs/v4-activities Source directory: /srv/activities-v4/src Bundle (*.xo) directory: /srv/activities-v4/bundles

Upgrade notes

As activities-v4 user on Machine/sunjammer, do

 ~/bin/also-refresh-src
 ~/bin/aslo-rebuild

This will pull master from the source repository, and the python library will be installed to ~/.local/lib/python3.x/site-packages . Once this has been done, it will be accessible from any directory. ~/bin/aslo-rebuild will rebuild v4.activities.sugarlabs.org, and deploy it to /srv/www-sugarlabs/v4-activities .
