fedwatch 0.2

Module for creating simple scripts reacting to fedmsg messages

Latest Version: 0.5


Library for watching fedmsg messages and running arbitrary scripts in a nice way

Think of fedwatch as simple converter from fedmsg json messages into shell arguments for scripts.



To use fedwatch you will need to create a configuration file (by default read from /etc/fedwatch.conf) and scripts that are to be run when messages of interest arrive (by default /etc/fedwatch.d).

When interesting message arrives, fedmsg converts json data into arguments for shell scripts and runs each script in <em>script-dir</em> based on configuration. First argument is always topic so that scripts can handle different topics.

Real life example of configuration file:

[] arg1=msg/commit/username arg2=msg/commit/repo arg3=msg/commit/branch arg4=msg/commit/rev arg5=msg/commit/summary

Above configuration means fedwatch will be waiting for <em>git.receive</em> topic and will pass 6 arguments to any scripts in <em>script-dir</em>:

  1. (topic)
  2. FAS username of commiter
  3. repository (package) name
  4. branch name
  5. revision (SHA hash of commit)
  6. commit summary (1st line of git commit)

To see list of possible topics and data included in them see
