orepan2-indexer - Indexer
% orepan2-indexer /path/to/darkpan/
This script creates 02packages.details.txt.gz from a directory which contains tarballs.
Use the MetaCPAN API to look up "provides" information. This can greatly speed up the indexing of a large repository. MetaCPAN lookups are disabled by default.
You should note that MetaCPAN will be stricter about version numbers than OrePAN2's internal parser is. If you're switching an existing OrePAN2 repository to use MetaCPAN, this may result in some undef version numbers in your 02packages file where you formerly had version numbers. In almost all cases this will be the correct behaviour and should not cause any problems. If you find behaviour which is not correct, please open a Github issue so that we can look into the root of the problem.
% orepan2-indexer --metacpan /path/to/darkpan/
Forces the resulting 02packages index file to be uncompressed.
% orepan2-indexer --text /path/to/darkpan/
Use a simple format for 02packages metadata. This helps avoid merge conflicts.
% orepan2-indexer --simple /path/to/darkpan
Prints the current OrePAN2 version.
% orepan2-indexer --version
