GAnarchy

GAnarchy is a Project Page Generator focused on giving forks of a project the same visibility as the original repo. More importantly, it’s a tool to help fight against BDFLs and other forms of centralized project management.

Basic Usage

Note: GAnarchy does not come with a main page. You need to provide one yourself. This should be in your website’s / path (usually index.html). The protocol handler uses the path /?url=%s. Additionally, your main page needs to include the index.js provided by GAnarchy for the protocol handler to properly work.

First, initialize the database with ganarchy.py initdb. The database is stored in the XDG data home, as per XDG spec.

Then, set the project commit with ganarchy.py set-commit COMMIT, where COMMIT is the full commit hash. The commit must start with [Project] followed by the project name, and may have an optional description. (Note: This requirement isn’t properly checked, but will be in the future. This is important for a future federation protocol that allows for automatically discovering forks based on the project commit.)

Once everything is initialized, add some repos with ganarchy.py repo add URL, and enable or disable them with ganarchy.py repo enable URL or ganarchy.py repo disable URL. They currently come enabled by default. You are now ready to go.

Finally, add ganarchy.py cron-target > path/to/page.html to your cron. Optionally scp page.html scp://server@example.org/page.html.

Example shell session:

$ ganarchy.py initdb
$ ganarchy.py set-commit 385e734a52e13949a7a5c71827f6de920dbfea43
$ ganarchy.py set-project-name GAnarchy
$ ganarchy.py repo add https://cybre.tech/SoniEx2/ganarchy
$ ganarchy.py cron-target > index.html
$ scp index.html scp://example.org/var/www/html/index.html

Example project commit:

[Project] GAnarchy

A Project Page Generator written in Python, focused on giving forks of a
project the same visibility as the original repo.

Advanced Usage

It’s also possible to use the same GAnarchy DB with multiple projects. This is currently done by passing --project COMMIT to the repo commands, and using cron-target COMMIT.

Note that the same repo may be part of multiple projects, so it is necessary to specify --project COMMIT also when enabling/disabling it.

Additionally, it’s possible to set a non-default branch by passing --branch BRANCHNAME to the repo commands. Given that multiple branches of the same repo may be part of the same project, it is also necessary to use --branch BRANCHNAME when enabling/disabling them.
