Can we extract haxelib info for Sourcerer automatically? Otherwise I could manually gather them when have time.
I was planning on trying something in the coming days, this seems to be more or less possible.
Let me know if I can help there are places like npm that have haxelibs and github perhaps we could output all on github with a script and then manually remove some that are not really relevant or suitable. There are some haxelibs that have false github/bitbucket or other repositories, really these should be excluded if you can’t check contents of a haxelib via a repo before downloading it’s not really good ( or safe long term as haxe grows ).
Let’s start with haxelib support, that will easily cover 90%+ of cases and make haxe support possible.
I guess haxe libs published on npm are on haxelib too most of the time, so I don’t see the added benefit in checking there (especially since it’s a lot more work).
As for haxelib that do not have a valid repo, there’s the
Files tab in lib.haxe.org (not working for 100% of libs, but still). Also it’s off topic, we do not have to care about this kind of things, just let people identify/classify their work.
Some time ago i made a script (don’t have sources anymore) which runs
haxelib search with an empty string and then
haxelib info for every found library.
You mean something like
haxelib search "" | xargs -n 1 haxelib info ?
Yes. But it had some additional functionality to fetch haxelib.json files and build dependency graphs
Nice Shouldn’t be necessary here though, I didn’t see anything about dependencies.
haxelib info gives us
- tags which can be translated with some custom dictionary to sourcerer tags/tech
- “website” which can be parsed for repo field
Still need something for the base package…
