Release Process

When making a Stable Branch from which to build releases, we need to do these tasks:

Check that all works with a released version of Web2Py

Ensure included files sane:

  • VERSION (updated automatically by Bzr start-commit hook)

Clear Database

To clear database of test data & reset to defaults:

  • Close Web2Py
  • Delete all files from /databases & /uploads

Clean the files which are created by the deployment-templates of all personal data (i.e. overwrite with version from deployment-templates):

  • cron/crontab
  • models/

Update Language Files

python -S eden -R applications\eden\static\scripts\tools\

Merge any updates from Pootle

Export Application

This could be scripted:

cd /home/web2py
# @ToDo: Clean
# Compile
python -S eden -M -R applications/eden/static/scripts/tools/
# @ToDo: Catch errors
# @ToDo: Pack
# @ToDo: Download with filename


Import the app with a new name & Test

Upload to LaunchPad

Update Windows Installers

Update Wiki

Update Demo

  • Update Web2Py (if necessary)
    cd /home/web2py/applications/eden
    bzr pull -r xxx
