Version 1 of Package Uploads Client

Updated 2016-12-24 01:05:49 by mistachkin

Also known as the "Package Uploader Client".

Part of the Package Client Toolset (see "pkgu.eagle" and "pkgr_upload.eagle").

The Package Uploads Client is used to upload new packages.

It works in both Tcl/Tk and Eagle.

It has an interactive user interface (using Tk or WinForms).

It shares code with the Package Repository Client and Package Downloads Client.

Roughly, at a high level, it does the following:

  1. Accepts an API key, package name, package patch level, target language, target language version, target platform, and a list of file names, either via the command line or interactively.
  2. Makes sure that the command line executables are installed for both GPG2 and Fossil.
  3. Stages (adds and signs) the specified list of package files to the associated local checkout of the package file repository (see: " ").
  4. Attempts to commits the package files, always on a new branch.
  5. Creates a script block to download the files using the Package Downloads Client, locked to the specific checked-in version.
  6. Signs the created script block.
  7. Submits the package metadata to the package repository server (see: " ").
