Recipe to configure File System Storage

Supported options

The recipe supports the following options:

conf
Filesystem path for the configuration file. Need the complete path to the file.
zope-instances
List of filesystem paths for standalone zope instances or ZEO client instances. One path by line.
storages

List of FSS configurations for your buildout. The first line is for the global configuration. Following lines are by zope path specific configurations.

Each line is build on the below model:
name zope_path fss_strategy storage_filesystem_path backup_filesystem_path

The two first parameters are required. Others are needed sequentially: if you need to define storage_filesystem_path you have to define fss_strategy. It's a space based configuration: don't use spaces in parameters.

name
a name for these part of the configuration
zope_path
an absolute path in the ZODB
fss_strategy (optional)
a strategy between directory (default), flat, site1 and site2
storage_filesystem_path (optional)
filesystem path where active files are stored. Default path is $buildout_path/var/fss_storage_$name
backup_filesystem_path (optional)
filesystem path where files backup are stored. Default path is $buildout_path/var/fss_backup_$name

Example:

[fss]
recipe = iw.recipe.fss
## Deprecated
#conf = ${zopeinstance:location}/etc/plone-filesystemstorage.conf
# Replacement for 'conf' option
zope-instances =
    ${zeoclient1:location}
    ${zeoclient2:location}
storages =
# The first is always generic
    global /
# Others are always specific
    pone_flat /site flat /somewhere/files /somewhere/files_backup

Example usage

The recipe is called by buildout, let's create an instance of it, with a buildout simulated context:

>>> from zc.buildout.testing import *
>>> import os; join = os.path.join
>>> data_dir = join(test_dir, 'data')
>>> data2_dir = join(test_dir, 'data2')
>>> bin_dir = join(data_dir, 'bin')
>>> var_dir = join(data_dir, 'var2')
>>> conf_dir = join(data_dir, 'etc')
>>> conf2_dir = join(data2_dir, 'etc')
>>> buildout = {'zeoclient1': {'location': data_dir},
...         'zeoclient2': {'location': data2_dir},
...         'buildout': {'bin-directory': bin_dir}}
>>> name = 'fss'
>>> options = {'zope-instances': '''
...        %(zeoclient1_location)s
...        %(zeoclient2_location)s
...        ''' % {'zeoclient1_location': data_dir, 'zeoclient2_location': data2_dir},
...        'storages': """
...         global /
...         storage2 /site/storage2 flat
...         storage3 /site/storage3 flat %(var)s/storage
...         storage4 /site/storage4 flat %(var)s/sub/storage %(var)s/sub/backup
...         """ % {'var': var_dir}}

Creating the recipe:

>>> from iw.recipe.fss import Recipe
>>> recipe = Recipe(buildout, name, options)

Running it:

>>> paths = list(recipe.install())

Checking files created. We don't want this recipe to list the created dir, so in case of uninstallation, they are never removed:

>>> paths.sort()
>>> paths
['...data/etc/plone-filesystemstorage.conf', '...data2/etc/plone-filesystemstorage.conf']

Checking the conf file:

>>> conf = open(join(conf_dir,
...                  'plone-filesystemstorage.conf'))
>>> print conf.read()
# FSS conf file generated by iw.recipe.fss
<BLANKLINE>
# main storage global for /
storage-path /.../data/var/fss_storage_global
backup-path /.../data/var/fss_backup_global
storage-strategy directory
<BLANKLINE>
# storage storage2
<site /site/storage2>
 storage-path /.../data/var/fss_storage_storage2
 backup-path /.../data/var/fss_backup_storage2
 storage-strategy flat
</site>
<BLANKLINE>
# storage storage3
<site /site/storage3>
 storage-path /.../data/var2/storage
 backup-path /.../data/var/fss_backup_storage3
 storage-strategy flat
</site>
<BLANKLINE>
# storage storage4
<site /site/storage4>
 storage-path /.../sub/storage
 backup-path /.../sub/backup
 storage-strategy flat
</site>
<BLANKLINE>
<BLANKLINE>

Checking the conf file:

>>> conf = open(join(conf2_dir,
...                  'plone-filesystemstorage.conf'))
>>> print conf.read()
# FSS conf file generated by iw.recipe.fss
<BLANKLINE>
# main storage global for /
storage-path /.../data/var/fss_storage_global
backup-path /.../data/var/fss_backup_global
storage-strategy directory
<BLANKLINE>
# storage storage2

 storage-path /.../data/var/fss_storage_storage2
 backup-path /.../data/var/fss_backup_storage2
 storage-strategy flat
</site>
<BLANKLINE>
# storage storage3

 storage-path /.../data/var2/storage
 backup-path /.../data/var/fss_backup_storage3

<BLANKLINE>
# storage storage4

 storage-path /.../sub/storage

Existing data

Let's fill the data folder with data:

>>> storage_dir = join(var_dir, 'storage')
>>> data = 'xxxx'
>>> f = open(join(storage_dir, 'data'), 'w')
>>> f.write(data)
>>> f.close()

>>> ls(storage_dir)
- data

Let's re-run the recipe:

>>> paths = list(recipe.install())

Let's make sure that no existing path was returned by the recipe, otherwise zc.buildout might treat them as new files. The only new file we should get is the conf file because it's the only one that is re-written everytime:

>>> paths
['...plone-filesystemstorage.conf']

We shouldn't loose the data:

>>> ls(storage_dir)
- data

>>> for path in paths:
...     try:
...         os.rmdir(path)
...     except:
...         os.remove(path)

Alternate configurations

Try with conf option:

>>> buildout = {'instance': {'location': data_dir},
...         'buildout': {'bin-directory': bin_dir}}
>>> name = 'fss'
>>> options = {'conf': join(conf_dir,
...                         'plone-filesystemstorage.conf'),
...        'storages': """
...         global /
...         storage2 /site/storage2 flat
...         """ % {'var': var_dir}}
>>> recipe = Recipe(buildout, name, options)
>>> paths = list(recipe.install())

Checking the conf file:

>>> conf = open(join(conf_dir,
...                  'plone-filesystemstorage.conf'))
>>> print conf.read()
# FSS conf file generated by iw.recipe.fss
<BLANKLINE>
# main storage global for /
storage-path /.../data/var/fss_storage_global
backup-path /.../data/var/fss_backup_global
storage-strategy directory
<BLANKLINE>
# storage storage2
<site /site/storage2>
 storage-path /.../data/var/fss_storage_storage2
 backup-path /.../data/var/fss_backup_storage2
 storage-strategy flat
</site>
<BLANKLINE>

Try without conf nor zope-instances option:

>>> buildout = {'instance': {'location': data_dir},
...         'buildout': {'bin-directory': bin_dir}}
>>> name = 'fss'
>>> options = {'storages': """
...         global /
...         storage2 /site/storage2 flat
...         """ % {'var': var_dir}}
>>> recipe = Recipe(buildout, name, options)
>>> paths = list(recipe.install())

Checking the conf file:

>>> conf = open(join(conf_dir,
...                  'plone-filesystemstorage.conf'))
>>> print conf.read()
# FSS conf file generated by iw.recipe.fss
<BLANKLINE>
# main storage global for /
storage-path /.../data/var/fss_storage_global
backup-path /.../data/var/fss_backup_global
storage-strategy directory
<BLANKLINE>
# storage storage2
<site /site/storage2>
 storage-path /.../data/var/fss_storage_storage2
 backup-path /.../data/var/fss_backup_storage2
 storage-strategy flat
</site>
