2019-04-25examples/cgit-commit-filter.lua: some doc updates
It's been a while since I wrote this, and it needs to be kept up-to-date with some advances in our Perl code.
2019-04-25examples: cgit filter for use with WwwHighlight
I'm using this as the cgit about-filter and source-filter in https://80x24.org/public-inbox.git
2019-04-24wwwhighlight: deal with no-op highlight
Not all inputs are highlight-able, so reuse the original input and just linkify it if it can't be highlighted.
2019-04-24examples/cgit-commit-filter: remove unused variable
2019-04-24wwwhighlight: do linkification, too
Otherwise, there's no reason to use this API over highlight(1). Maybe this can be an option in the future; but I'm struggling to find a reason to not do it by default.
2019-04-23view: avoid "1+ messages" in per-message footer of /t/ and /T/
Try to appear gramatically correct and state: "only message in thread" when there's only one known (to us) message in the thread.
2019-04-23doc: add standards reference
Incomplete at the moment, but this ought to be a handy reference for both implementers and users alike.
2019-04-19t/hl_mod: workaround w3m not handling '
This fixes a test failure on my Debian buster system. Bug report filed for w3m to handle "'": https://bugs.debian.org/927409 and for "highlight" to favor "'" in case other browsers fail: https://bugs.debian.org/927410
2019-04-18linkify: require parentheses pairs in URLs
Dangling parentheses with trailing punctuation usually means the parentheses is not intended as part of the URL.
2019-04-18view: show "(no subject)" consistently in HTML
Empty subjects ("") and undefined Subjects: are now both displayed as "(no subject)" for now.
2019-04-18doc: config: fix braino/typo :x
2019-04-18linkify: don't get confused by URLs in Perl code, at least
The URLs at the top of WwwStream.pm weren't getting linkified correctly.
2019-04-18inbox: add `modified' sub
For inboxes with SQLite enabled (all v2, and probably most v1); we can use the overview DB to get the timestamp of the latest message. It's faster than scanning git branches for commit times, but not always the same.
2019-04-18git: calculate modified time of repository
This will be used for generating an HTML listing for v1 inboxes, at least. The logic for this follows that of grokmirror, and we may dynamically generate manifest.js.gz natively...
2019-04-18config: use '$ibx' instead of '$rv' to denote Inbox objects
Followup-to: 6e6f7999361925e4 ("cleanup: use '$ibx' consistently when referring to Inbox refs")
2019-04-17TODO: add an item for hooks support
and add a note for grokmirror support/integration, too
2019-04-16HACKING: stop advertising mailing list subscription info
It's still available, but no point in advertising something which increases the dependency on a centralized subscriber list. In fact, it's actively against the goal of promoting resistance against centralization.
2019-04-16import: prefix 'inbox' with '-' to denote Inbox ref
This is for consistency with other fields which follow this pattern w.r.t. field-naming when referring to internal fields.
2019-04-16cleanup: use '$ibx' consistently when referring to Inbox refs
'$inbox' is more human-readable, so that is for the more human-readable name in most cases. Making our variable naming more consistent should make the code easier-to-review and harder to screw up.
2019-04-16www: remove unnecessary Git object reference
We access the Git object via the Inbox object nowadays, so there's no point in having a shortcut to it, anymore.
2019-04-16INSTALL: document Crypt:CBC for PublicInbox::Unsubscribe
I basically forgot about this module, but "make syntax" on a new chroot trips it up.
2019-04-15config: fix regression in repo.path => coderepo.dir mapping
We parse cgitrc for "repo.path", while we use "coderepo.dir" to mean the same thing for non-cgit users. So I ended up confusing myself, here. But then again, git uses "--git-dir" and "GIT_DIR", so I suspect "dir" is the better choice than "path", here
2019-04-15viewdiff: document constants
We'll be building off of this for showing diffs in the coderepo views.
2019-04-15doc/config: update cgit.cgi scan location
We account for the upstream default location as well as the Debian-installed one.
2019-04-15config: support more cgit directives for project lists
Hopefully this gets us closer to matching cgit upstream behavior (which also lacks tests). We'll still need to support macro expansion at some point for compatibility...
2019-04-15cgit: serve static css, logo, favicon directly
We can reduce the configuration needed to run cgit by reusing the static file handling logic of the dumb git HTTP protocol. I hate logos and icons, so don't expect public-inbox.org or 80x24.org to ever have those to waste users' bandwidth with :P But I expect other users to find this useful.
2019-04-15config: support cgit scan-path and scan-hidden-path
project_list support still needs to be done And tests need to be written... :<
2019-04-11doc: fix a few minor typos
2019-04-04www: fix missing cgit fallback after legacy redirects
We need to instate our cgit handler everywhere we use NewsWWW to catch wildcard requests which our normal endpoints do not handle.
2019-04-04spawn: require soft and hard entries in RLIMIT_* handling
Our high-level config already treats single limits as a soft==hard limit for limiters; so stop handling that redundant in the low-level spawn() sub.
2019-04-04cgit: use a dedicated named limiter
I mainly need this to enforce RLIMIT_CPU (and RLIMIT_CORE) when requests come which generate giant, unrealistic diffs. Per-coderepo limiters may be added in the future. But for now, I need to prevent cgit from monopolizing resources on my dinky server.
2019-04-04qspawn: wire up RLIMIT_* handling to limiters
This allows users to configure RLIMIT_{CORE,CPU,DATA} using our "limiter" config directive when spawning external processes.
2019-04-04www: wire up cgit as a 404 handler if cgitrc is configured
Requests intended for cgit are unlikely to conflict with requests to inboxes. So we can safely hand those requests off to cgit.cgi.
2019-04-04cgit: support running cgit as a standalone CGI
We depend on git-http-backend for smart HTTP clone support, however; since cgit does not support smart clones natively. WWW.pm will be able to cascade down to this as a 404 handler in the future.
2019-04-04spawn: support absolute paths
cgit (and most other CGI executables) is not typically installed for use via $PATH, so we'll need to support absolute paths to run it.
2019-04-04githttpbackend: check for other errors and relax CRLF check
Reads to git-http-backend(1) could fail or EOF prematurely, so we must be ready for that case. Furthermore, cgit (and possibly other CGI) uses LF instead of CRLF, so support those programs, too.
2019-04-04githttpbackend: move more psgi.input handling into subroutine
This will be useful for other CGI wrappers we make. This also fixes a bug with some PSGI servers which did not present a real IO::Handle in the psgi.input env field.
2019-04-04support publicinbox.cgitrc directive
We can save admins the trouble of declaring [coderepo "..."] sections in the public-inbox config by parsing the cgitrc directly. Macro expansion (e.g. $HTTP_HOST) expansion is not supported, yet; but may be in the future.
2019-04-04spawn: support RLIMIT_CPU, RLIMIT_DATA and RLIMIT_CORE
We'll be spawning cgit and git-diff, which can take gigantic amounts of CPU time and/or heap given the right (ermm... wrong) input. Limit the damage that large/expensive diffs can cause.
2019-04-04viewvcs: match 8000-byte lookup for git
No need to scan the entire string, but prefer to match git behavior. This might be faster if/when Perl can create substrings efficiently using CoW. Fix a 80-column violation while we're at it.
2019-04-04viewvcs: preliminary support for showing non-blobs
Eventually, we'll have special displays for various git objects (commit, tree, tag). But for now, we'll just use git-show to spew whatever comes from git.
2019-04-04git: add "commit_title" method
This will be useful for extracting titles/subjects from commit objects when displaying commits.
2019-04-02githttpbackend: serve $GIT_DIR/info/attributes
This will be useful for reproducibility when mirroring coderepos and generating diffs.
2019-04-02viewvcs: check for premature EOF from git-cat-file
Not entirely sure what is causing this, but it appears to be causing infinite loops when attempting to display certain blobs. Fortunately, the fair scheduling of public-inbox-httpd prevented this from becoming a real problem aside from increasing CPU usage.
2019-03-12config: ignore missing config files
There's no reason for us to have git-config(1) warn users when a config file is entirely missing.
2019-03-08v2writable: index_sync adds new epochs to alternates
Newly-cloned epochs need to be in alternates file of all.git for the web and NNTP interfaces to work. So allow invocations of "public-inbox-index" to idempotently ensure the epoch is visible from the all.git repo.
2019-03-08v2writable: hoist out fill_alternates
We'll be using this sub to fill $GIT_DIR/objects/info/alternates if somebody uses clone --mirror, too
2019-02-27v2writable: fix epoch rollover on incremental imports
All of our internal epoch rollover calculations are done using the estimated unpacked (and uncompressed) size of the repo. The importer instance needs to check that unpacked size before selecting an epoch when an epoch already has packed data. This bug did not impact the initial mass imports since we only initialize the Import instance once-per-epoch and did not need to take existing epochs into account. Tested manually with -mda on a local clone of LKML Reported-by: Konstantin Ryabitsev <konstantin@linuxfoundation.org>
2019-02-23www: prevent '!important' in BOFH-specified CSS
CSS specified by the BOFH must never take precedence over what a user sets in userContent.css.
2019-02-23usercontent.pm: set "!important" to override BOFH prefs
The sample userContent.css needs a higher priority than what the BOFH specifies. In other words, user preference must ALWAYS take precedence. Reported-by: Dmitry Alexandrov <321942@gmail.com> cf. https://public-inbox.org/meta/87mumn4kx8.fsf@gmail.com/
