NAME

App::opan - A CPAN overlay for darkpan and pinning purposes

SYNOPSIS

Set up an opan (creates a directory tree in pans/):

  $ opan init
  $ opan pin MSTROUT/M-1.tar.gz
  $ opan add ./My-Dist-1.23.tar.gz

Now, you can start the server:

  $ opan daemon -l http://localhost:8030/
  Server available at http://localhost:8030/

Then in another terminal, run one of:

  $ cpanm --mirror http://localhost:8030/combined/ --mirror-only --installdeps .
  $ PERL_CARTON_MIRROR=http://localhost:8030/combined/ carton install

Or, to let opan do that part for you, skip starting the server and run one of:

  $ opan cpanm --installdeps .
  $ opan carton install

NOTA BENE

This is systems software, in its relatively early days. It may contain horrible bugs. It may turn out to need redesigning in not entirely compatible ways. I hope neither, but I can't guarantee that yet.

DESCRIPTION

Two basic approaches to using this thing. First, if you're using carton, you can probably completely ignore the pinning system, so just do:

  $ opan init
  $ opan add ./My-DarkPan-Dist-1.23.tar.gz
  $ git add pans/; git commit -m 'fresh opan'
  $ opan carton install

You can reproduce this install with simply:

  $ opan carton install --deployment

When you want to update to a new version of the cpan index (assuming you already have an additional requirement that's too old in your current snapshot):

  $ opan pull
  $ git add pans/; git commit -m 'update pans'
  $ opan carton install

Second, if you're not using carton, but you want reproducible installs, you can still mostly ignore the pinning system by doing:

  $ opan init
  $ opan add ./My-DarkPan-Dist-1.23.tar.gz
  $ opan cpanm --autopin --installdeps .
  $ git add pans/; git commit -m 'opan with current version pinning'

Your reproducible install is now:

  $ opan cpanm --installdeps .

When you want to update to a new version of the cpan index (assuming you already have an additional requirement that's too old in your current snapshot):

  $ opan pull
  $ opan cpanm --autopin --installdeps .
  $ git add pans/; git commit -m 'update pans'

To update a single dist in this system, the easy route is:

  $ opan unpin Thingy-1.23.tar.gz
  $ opan cpanm Thingy
  Fetching http://www.cpan.org/authors/id/S/SO/SOMEONE/Thingy-1.25.tar.gz
  ...
  $ opan pin SOMEONE/Thing-1.25.tar.gz

This will probably make more sense if you read the "Commands" and "PANs" documentation following before trying to set things up.

Commands

init

  opan init

Creates a pans/ directory with empty indexes for "custom" and "pinset" and a fresh index for "upstream" (i.e. runs "fetch" for you at the end of initialisation).

fetch

  opan fetch

Fetches 02packages from www.cpan.org into the "upstream" PAN.

add

  opan add Dist-Name-1.23.tar.gz

Imports a distribution file into the "custom" PAN under author MY. Any path parts provided before the filename will be stripped.

Support for other authors is pending somebody explaining why that would have a point. See "pin" for the command you probably wanted instead.

unadd

  opan unadd Dist-Name-1.23.tar.gz

Looks for a Dist-Name-1.23.tar.gz path in the "custom" PAN index and removes the entries.

Does not remove the dist file, see "purge".

pin

  opan pin AUTHOR/Dist-Name-1.23.tar.gz

Fetches the file from the "upstream" PAN and adds it to "pinset".

unpin

  opan unpin Dist-Name-1.23.tar.gz

Looks for a Dist-Name-1.23.tar.gz path in the "pinset" PAN index and removes the entries.

Does not remove the dist file, see "purge".

merge

  opan merge

Rebuilds the "combined" and "nopin" PANs' index files.

pull

  opan pull

Does an "fetch" then an "merge". There's no equivalent for others, on the assumption what you'll do is roughly "pin", "add", "unpin", "unadd", ... repeat ..., "pull".

purgelist

  opan purgelist

Outputs a list of all non-indexed dists in "pinset" and "custom".

purge

  opan purge

Deletes all files that would have been listed by "purgelist".

daemon

  opan daemon

Starts a single process server using Mojolicious::Command::daemon.

prefork

  opan prefork

Starts a multi-process preforking server using Mojolicious::Command::prefork.

get

  opan get /upstream/modules/02packages.details.txt.gz

Runs a request against the opan URL space using Mojolicious::Command::get.

cpanm

  opan cpanm --installdeps .

Starts a temporary server process and runs

  cpanm --mirror http://localhost:<port>/combined/ --mirror-only <your args here>

Can also be run with one of:

  opan cpanm --nopin <your args here>
  opan cpanm --autopin <your args here>
  opan cpanm --combined <your args here>

to request a specific PAN.

carton

  opan carton install

Starts a temporary server process and runs

  PERL_CARTON_MIRROR=http://localhost:<port>/combined/ carton <your args here>

Can also be run with one of:

  opan carton --nopin <your args here>
  opan carton --autopin <your args here>
  opan carton --combined <your args here>

to request a specific PAN.

PANs

upstream

02packages: Fetched from www.cpan.org by the "fetch" command.

Dist files: Fetched from www.cpan.org on-demand.

pinset

02packages: Managed by "pin" and "unpin" commands.

Dist files: Fetched from www.cpan.org by "pin" command.

custom

02packages: Managed by "add" and "unadd" commands.

Dist files: Imported from local disk by "add" command.

combined

02packages: Merged from upstream, pinset and custom PANs by "merge" command.

Dist files: Fetched from custom, pinset and upstream in that order.

nopin

02packages: Merged from upstream and custom PANs by "merge" command.

Dist files: Fetched from custom, pinset and upstream in that order.

autopin

Virtual PAN with no presence on disk.

Identical to nopin, but fetching a dist from upstream does an implict "pin".

Since this can modify your opan config, it's only enabled if the environment variable OPAN_AUTOPIN is set to a true value (calling the "cpanm" or "carton" commands with --autopin sets this for you, because you already specified you wanted that).

None yet, but I'm sure there'll be enough bugs for that to change shortly.
