#2822 closed task (fixed)

Upload a buildbot-www package somewhere for development

Reported by: dustin Owned by: dustin
Priority: critical Milestone: sys - other
Version: master Keywords:


The RunningBuildbotWithVirtualEnv page recommends running pip install buildbot-www to get the www stuff without needing Node or NPM. However, that will only install the most recently uploaded version, which may lag behind the git master revision.

We should have the metabuildbot upload every successful revision of buildbot-www to and set up a symlink of some sort so that users can pip install

well, my solution is change version in master and slave to meet the version requirement, but if we have a package somewhere, it would be better!

blocked on #2847

I'm working on doing this on the old Buildbot master, since #2847 appears to be moving slowly.

The packages will be at

There are some issues around version numbers, though, that still need to be worked out. And due to #2877, the requirements just to build any of the www packages are pretty extreme: mock, PhantomJS plus all of its prerequisites, actually installing Buildbot, and "activating" the virtualenv (which is not normally done in automation).

The metabuildbot host is currently working through a bunch of production builds, so I'll check back when it's idle.

but still waiting on #2883 before it will actually produce useful packages.

comment:7 Changed 5 years ago by dustin

I have a private key for uploads to, so this is ready to go. I'll work on it ASAP.

comment:8 Changed 5 years ago by dustin

OK, uploads are now going to

complete with a VERSION.txt and README.txt listing the full version.

I deleted since it was never advertised.

I'm leaving this open pending #2883, after which time I'll make some wiki and documentation edits to point developers to these packages. As it stands, they're empty and nonfunctional.

OK, #2883 is complete, so it's time to edit things up to point to these wheels.
