SourceJuicer 1.0 is released!

SourceJuicer

The SourceJuicer team has announced that SourceJuicer 1.0 is now available!. SourceJuicer is a web service which facilitates the building and review of OpenSolaris packages. Its goal is to pave the path between building an OpenSolaris package, (which may only work on your laptop) and publishing high quality packages into the OpenSolaris /contrib repository. Here are some of my favorite features:

  • Sourcejuicer provides a community package review system.
  • It preinstalls Laca's Common Build Environment (CBE) and developer libraries in a build zone so you don't have to track down all of the build tools and dependencies required for common FOSS projects.
  • SourceJuicer examples and automatic validation walk me through the required fields in a spec file.
  • Once a package passes validation criteria and builds, it appears in sourcejuicer's internal /pending package repository and can be immediately installed on a clean QA machine for testing:

    pfexec pkg set-authority -O http://jucr.opensolaris.org/pending jucr-pending pfexec pkg refresh pfexec pkg install {foo}

  • If the package is clean and passes community review, it can be promoted to the /contrib repository.

This has been quite an interesting project and I've really enjoyed working with this team on this technology. Because I was focused on authentication, authorization and the (not yet released) bug management components, I didn't get to use the full system until very recently and I found that it really did remove some barriers to building and testing the 'dillo' browser and Alvaro's 'cherokee' web server.

We're looking forward to hearing feedback as more OpenSolaris contributors make use of SourceJuicer. You can find out more about the progress of sourcejuicer at The SourceJuicer Blog

Coming soon, SourceJuicer. 'cloud based' OpenSolaris package development

Circular cloud In recent weeks I've been busy working on the bug management, user authorization and authentication components of the SourceJuicer project. SourceJuicer is a Django based web service which will allow developers to build OpenSolaris packages in a standard build environment and put them on a clearly paved path to review and publication in the OpenSolaris contrib repository.

Christian has a more detailed explanation on the SourceJuicer Blog. The technology behind it is really interesting, it makes good use of ZFS as well as Solaris Containers (a.k.a. zones.) Watch the SourceJuicer blog for more detail as the project unfolds.
