git clone ssh://git.bobignou.red:23231/soft-serve_monitor
Soft Serve is a very nice git server. It offers a really nice TUI to browse the repositories on the server. Unfortunately, it does not offers a web interface. Here, I want to try to make a tiny web interface to present the git server and list the repositories there.
I use this to give a web interface to my personal Git server.
The web interface offers a home page that list all the repositories in the server. The name of each repository is a link to it's page.
In the page of each repository, there is the command to clone the repository and a render of the README file.
To tell the web server what files to monitor and how to login to the Soft Serve server, a JSON configuration file is needed. The JSON file needs the following fields:
||The host name of URL of the Soft Serve server.||"git.bobignou.red"|
||The port used by the Soft Serve server.||23231|
||The path to the folder where the git repositories are located||"/srv/soft-serve/.repos"|
||Port uses by the Flask web server.||8080|
||A name to display to describe the server.||Bobignou|
This JSON file should be given as argument when running the Flask server executable.
An example is given as
config.json in this repository.
This server depends on the following python libraries:
You need to install them before being able to run it.
Running this server is as easy as running any other Flask server. I use the following systemd service to run it on my personal server.
