PROGRAM:

NAME


inoticoming - trigger actions when files hit an incoming directory

SYNOPSIS


inoticoming [ global-options ] directory actions*

DESCRIPTION


Inoticoming is a daemon to watch a directory with Linux's inotify framework and trigger
actions once files with specific names are placed in there.

For example it can be used to wait for .changes files uploaded into a directory and call
reprepro to put them into your repository.

GLOBAL OPTIONS


--foreground
Do not fork, but stay in the foreground and log to stderr.

--logfile filename
After forking in the background, log to the specified filename instead of syslog.

--pid-file filename
Write the pid of the running instance into filename.

--initialsearch
First search the directory for files already existing and process them with the
given rules as if they just appeared. If files show up in this inital phase, they
may be processed twice, but should never be missed. (Unless they are too many and
the inotify queue overflows).

ACTIONS


Each action description is an optional list of options for this action (which files to
call it for, what directory to change into before executing it, ...), followed by the
command and its arguments ended with a single ; as argument. Like:
inoticoming --foreground / --regexp ^v echo There appeared {} in the root directory. \;
(Note that the \ before the ; is needed if and only if you calling it from a shell or
anything else interpreting the ; on its own).

ACTION OPTIONS
--prefix string
Only trigger this action, if the filename starts with the specified string.

--suffix string
Only trigger this action, if the filename ends with the specified string.

--regexp regular expression
Only trigger this action, if the filename matches the specified regular expression.

--chdir directory
Change into directory before executing the specified commands. (Note that since it
is a well-behaved daemon, its working directory is / which will be inherited by all
actions).

--stdout-to-log
Redirect the command's output (stdout) to the logfile.

--stderr-to-log
Redirect the command's error output (stderr) to the logfile.

EXAMPLES


inoticoming --logfile logs/ilog --pid-file pid $INCOMINGDIR --suffix .changes
--stderr-to-log reprepro -s -b $REPREPROBASEDIR --waitforlock 1000 processincoming
rulename {} \;
This will call reprepro for every new .changes file. Note that giving {} as
argument to processincoming (which inoticoming will replace with the filename) so
that only that .changes file is processed and reprepro will not complain about a
possible other yet incomplete .changes file is only available starting with
reprepro version 2.2.2.

PROBLEMS


There is no handling of queue overflows yet.
