pbget: ABS and AUR PKGBUILD etc retriever

Info page: http://xyne.archlinux.ca/projects/pbget

edit: updated post with current information

pbget is a command-line tool for downloading PKGBUILDs and local source files from the Arch Linux Git interface, the AUR, and the ABS tree

*bump*
Added the "--upgradable" option which will retrieve taurballs for all upgradable core/extra/community/testing/aur pkgs.

Re: pbget: ABS and AUR PKGBUILD etc retriever

If you have ShowSize enabled in pacman.conf pbget --upgradable tries to download the size of the packages.

--> including upgradable packages
-->   ntp
-->   [0.55
-->   MB]
--> searching for ntp in core/extra

pacman -Qu

Targets (1): ntp-4.2.4p6-2 [0.55 MB]

Re: pbget: ABS and AUR PKGBUILD etc retriever

*bangs head on desk*
I really wish I could just
a) use alpm directly
b) find some magical pacman option to spit out what I want
Until I learn how, I'm stuck hacking through pacman output.

Thanks for letting me know, bluewind. I'll see what I can do.

*edit*
It should be fixed now. Please update pbget and let me know if it works.

Re: pbget: ABS and AUR PKGBUILD etc retriever

I just tested 'pbget --upgradable --aur' and it works great. It may be helpful to have a "check only" option just to take a quick glance at what's out of date also.

Great work Xyne.

Hey Xyne,

Could you please look into the bug mentioned on the AUR page for your package? http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=23848 (not downloading *.sh files)

I experience it when grabbing Eclipse. Thanks smile

@Ranguvar
It should work now. I have no idea why I haven't been receiving comment notifications for pbget. Hopefully "UnNotify" -> "Notify" will fix that.

Just for reference, until the SVN web interface is extended to community packages, you need to use "--abs" for them.

Re: pbget: ABS and AUR PKGBUILD etc retriever

Thanks for that.

And since the SVN interface now exists for [community], can you modify pbget to work with that (without ABS)?
`pbget ncmpcpp` fails, even though the SVN ViewVC for that package can be found here: http://repos.archlinux.org/viewvc.cgi/n … =community

Re: pbget: ABS and AUR PKGBUILD etc retriever

I only had to tweak the code for core/extra to get community working (not sure why they didn't make the interface options identical). smile

I've also made bash-xyne-common_functions an optdepend.

Re: pbget: ABS and AUR PKGBUILD etc retriever

Works well, I badly needed something to replace my little script. Nice to have a uniform interface for both aur/repos.

though...

iphitus(~/src)$ pbget --aur chromium-snapshot
--> searching for chromium-snapshot in core/extra
--> searching for chromium-snapshot in community

Should that be trying to get chromium snapshot off AUR? The --aur-only option works as expected.

Re: pbget: ABS and AUR PKGBUILD etc retriever

I removed that code by mistake when ripping out the old [community] code. It should work as expected again.

Xyne, you will be docked 10% of your Arch T.U. pay over this effective immediately.

Re: pbget: ABS and AUR PKGBUILD etc retriever

With the recent changes to the SVN interface, it appears that all repos have broken (AUR still works fine), if you have time to fix it smile
It now lets you download a .tar.gz of all files, that'd probably be the way to go..?

Re: pbget: ABS and AUR PKGBUILD etc retriever

I now use a bash function as replacement for pbget. Probably, you are intereseted...

pbget() {
    local extract

    [[ "$1" = "-x" ]] && extract=1 && shift

    local pkgname="${1##*/}"

    if [[ "$pkgname" = "$1" ]]; then
        local repos=(testing core extra community-testing community aur)
    else
        local repos=(${1%%/*})
    fi

    for repo in ${repos[@]}; do
        local url
        case "$repo" in
            aur)
                url="http://aur.archlinux.org/packages/$pkgname/$pkgname.tar.gz"
                ;;
            community-testing|community)
                url="http://repos.archlinux.org/wsvn/community/$pkgname/repos/$repo-$(uname -m)/?op=dl&rev=0&isdir=1"
                ;;
            testing|core|extra)
                url="http://repos.archlinux.org/wsvn/packages/$pkgname/repos/$repo-$(uname -m)/?op=dl&rev=0&isdir=1"
                ;;
            *)
                echo "Unknown repository. Exiting..."
                return 1
                ;;
                
        esac
        
        wget -O "$pkgname.tar.gz" "$url"
        
        if [[ ! -s "$pkgname.tar.gz" || "$(file -bp --mime-type "$pkgname.tar.gz")" = "text/plain" ]]; then
            rm -f -- "$pkgname.tar.gz"
        else
            break
        fi
    done

    if [[ ! -f "$pkgname.tar.gz" ]]; then
        echo "Package \`$pkgname' does not exist in the repositories. Exiting..."
        return 1
    fi

    # extract downloaded file
    if [[ -n "$extract" ]]; then
        mkdir "$pkgname"
        bsdtar xkf "$pkgname.tar.gz" --strip-components 1 -C "$pkgname"
        rm -f -- "$pkgname.tar.gz"
        cd "$pkgname"
    fi
}

edit: I should probably give some examples how to use it:

$ pbget pacman

Will search for pacman in the following repos (testing core extra community-testing community aur) and takes the first pacman it finds. So, if there is a pacman package in testing, it would use this one.

$ pbget core/pacman

Get the PKGBUILD of the pacman package in core.

$ pbget -x core/pacman

Get the PKGBUILD of the pacman package in core, extract the tarball (and delete it) and change into the directory which contains the extracted PKGBUILD.

Re: pbget: ABS and AUR PKGBUILD etc retriever

I assume the functionality of pbget is just broken currently? About the only thing it does properly for me is pbget --aur-only

Re: pbget: ABS and AUR PKGBUILD etc retriever

[core] and [extra] still worked. Everything else was falsely detected in one of those without the "--aur-only" option.

It should be fixed now.

Thanks, it works now with community/AUR packages.

pbget can no longer retrieve PKGBUILDs from SVN. I think it's related to this.

I'm not sure. The website links haven't changed. It seems to be a server problem. Go to a package page and click on the download link, e.g.:
pacman -> download
All it displays is "Unable to create a temporary directory.".


I have filed a bug report. Once I know more I will update pbget if necessary.


In the meantime, use the "--abs" option to retrieve files via rsync.
