New GrimoireLab release: 18.09-02

By September 12, 2018 No Comments

We have a new release of GrimoireLab, 18.09-02, corresponding to grimoirelab-0.1.2 (the main Python package).

This release includes full support Mattermost and GoogleHits, some improvements in the Kibiter UI and panels, some bug fixes and minor new features.

The corresponding packages have been uploaded to pypi (so they’re installable with pip). I’ve tested most of the examples in the GrimoireLab Tutorial with this new release, and everything seems to work. Please, report any problem you may find.

As usual, this release of pypi packages was generated with docker containers, to ensure platform independence. You can install all the packages just with:

$ pip install grimoirelab

Remember that now we also have a new grimoirelab package, that pulls all the Python packages for the release. So, installation is easier, and traceability too: for knowing the GrimoireLab release, just run

$ grimoirelab -v
GrimoireLab 0.1.2

The tag you get (0.1.2 in this case) corresponds to a certain release file (18.09-02 in this case), and specific commits and Python package versions.

We have also produced four Docker images available in DockerHub, all of them with the tags :18.09-02 and :latest. You can pull and run them straight away:

  • grimoirelab/factory: for creating the Python packages
  • grimoirelab/installed: with GrimoireLab installed
  • grimoirelab/full: grimoirelab/installed plus services needed to produce a dashboard, by default produces a dashboard of the CHAOSS project.
  • grimoirelab/secured: grimoirelab/full plus access control and SSL for access to Kibiter

If you want to use or help to debug the containers, have a look at the docker directory in the chaoss/grimoirelab repository.

The list of new stuff is in the NEWS file (check all changes since 18.08-01, which was the latest release with packages in pypi).
