Buildout recipe for fetching sources in a git repository

Latest Version: 1.2

This simple recipe for zc.buildout fetches data from a given repository and stores it into its part's directory. A simple task using this could look like this:


This would store the repository under ${buildout:directory}/parts/myapp and keep it at exactly this revision, no matter what happens on the server.

The recipe has following options:

The absolute URL of the repository to be fetched
A revision/commit within this repository the environment should use.
If you want to stay up to date with a certain branch other than "master", use this.
List of relative paths to packages to develop. Must be used together with as_egg=true.
This overrides the newest-option of the global setting for this part
Set to True if you want the checkout to be registered as a development egg in your buildout.
Name of the repository in the download-cache directory.
Follow submodules (Note that submodules are not cloned from the download cache).

Offline installation

If you want to install a part from the download-cache, this is now possible, too:

parts = myapp
download-cache = /var/cache/buildout
install-from-cache = true

recipe = sact.recipe.gitrepository
repository =

With this configuration, the recipe will look for /var/cache/buildout/repo and clone it into the local parts/ folder.

The recipe also supports an additional "cache-name" setting that lets you configure the folder name of the repository in the download cache.
