Repo mirroring script
« on: November 30, 2009, 08:13:39 PM »
I am removing this script to respect the wishes of the TC team to not overburden ibiblio.  For those that are already using it, I'll be happy to answer questions and take suggestions.

Seems to need GNU wget

OK, there is stuff over here now.

How do I point AppBrowser to the local mirror? Is it simply a case of filling in the directory? And what do I put for prototcol?

You will need to run a web server on the pc hosting the mirror and make the mirror dir accessible via the webserver. there are a few web server options in the repo, personally I use XAMPP available as a self contained package that you only need to download and run.  you can then edit /opt/.tcrc to point to your local web server.

An example: in the script MYREPO="/mnt/hda1/mirror"
Edit httpd.conf of the web server (apache style servers) and set the document root to /mnt/hda1/mirror.
After starting the server edit /opt/.tcrc and change the Mirror: to "Mirror: <ip.of.web.server>/mirror/2.x"  protocol will be http repo will be tcz
Appbrowser and tce-load will then be using your local mirror

Seems to me that using 'install local' might be easier. No need for a web server.

"Install Local" is certainly an option, but if you go the route of a webserver then you will have full access through appbrowser to view info, list, and dep files.  Also the script is capable of mimicking the repo webpage at the official site complete with clickable links. The choice is yours of course.

Sooo, what's involved in setting up this server? (Never done it.) :)

@jur: Just in case if your host is a Windows system (I guess not, but that's what I'm using here at the moment) you could use HFS (http://sourceforge.net/projects/hfs/files/). It's a simple HTTP file server, with hardly any setup requirements.

First step would be to pick which server to use.  there already a couple in the repo (apache, monkey, lighttpd).  Monkey appears to be the smallest, and is likely the simplest to implement, although I havent used it. Use the info file, my suggestions above, and google to get it set up and running. then you can use your web browser and/or appbrowser to browse your local mirror.

I realise this thread is old but I would be interested in doing this also
