Installation

There are several ways for installing Perceval on your system: from packages,
from a docker image or from the source code.

Pip

Perceval can be installed using pip, a tool
for installing Python packages. To do it, run the next command:

$ pip3 install perceval

Docker

A Perceval Docker image is available at DockerHub.

Detailed information on how to run and/or build this image can be found here.

Source code

To install from the source code you will need to clone the repository first:

$ git clone https://github.com/grimoirelab/perceval.git

In this case, setuptools package will be required.
Make sure it is installed before running the next commands:

$ pip3 install -r requirements.txt
$ python3 setup.py install

Documentation

Documentation is generated automagically in the ReadTheDocs Perceval site.

Examples

Askbot

$ perceval askbot 'http://askbot.org/' --from-date '2016-01-01'

Bugzilla

To fetch bugs from Bugzilla, you have two options:

a) Use the traditional backend

$ perceval bugzilla 'https://bugzilla.redhat.com/' --backend-user user --backend-password pass --from-date '2016-01-01'

b) Use the REST API backend for Buzilla 5.0 (or higher) servers. We strongly recommend
this backend when data is fetched from version servers >=5.0 because the retrieval
process is much faster.

$ perceval bugzillarest 'https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/' --backend-user user --backend-password pass --from-date '2016-01-01'

Confluence

$ perceval confluence 'https://wiki.opnfv.org/' --from-date '2016-01-01'

Discourse

$ perceval discourse 'https://foro.mozilla-hispano.org/' --from-date '2016-01-01'

Docker Hub

$ perceval dockerhub grimoirelab perceval

Gerrit

To run gerrit, you will need an authorized SSH private key:

$ eval `ssh-agent -s`
$ ssh-add ~/.ssh/id_rsa
Identity added: /home/user/.ssh/id_rsa (/home/user/.ssh/id_rsa)

To run the backend, execute the next command:

$ perceval gerrit --user user 'review.openstack.org' --from-date '2016-01-01'

Git

To run this backend execute the next command. Take into account that to run
this backend Git program has to be installed on your system.

$ perceval git 'https://github.com/grimoirelab/perceval.git' --from-date '2016-01-01'

Git backend can also work with a Git log file as input. We recommend to use the next command to get the most complete log file.

git log --raw --numstat --pretty=fuller --decorate=full --parents --reverse --topo-order -M -C -c --remotes=origin --all > /tmp/gitlog.log

Then, to run the backend, just execute any of the next commands:

$ perceval git --git-log '/tmp/gitlog.log' 'file:///myrepo.git'

or

$ perceval git '/tmp/gitlog.log'
