Mix v1.9.1 Mix.SCM behaviour View Source

This module provides helper functions and defines the behaviour required by any source code manager (SCM) used by Mix.

Link to this section Summary

Functions

Appends the given SCM module to the list of available SCMs.

Returns all available SCMs. Each SCM is tried in order until a matching one is found.

Prepends the given SCM module to the list of available SCMs.

Callbacks

This behaviour function receives a keyword list of opts and should return an updated list in case the SCM consumes the available options. For example, when a developer specifies a dependency

This behaviour function returns a boolean if the dependency is available.

This behaviour function checks out dependencies.

Receives two options and must return true if they refer to the same repository. The options are guaranteed to belong to the same SCM.

Returns a boolean if the dependency can be fetched or it is meant to be previously available in the file system.

Returns a string representing the SCM. This is used when printing the dependency and not for inspection, so the amount of information should be concise and easy to spot.

Returns a string representing the SCM. This is used when printing the dependency and not for inspection, so the amount of information should be concise and easy to spot.

This behaviour function checks the status of the lock. In particular, it checks if the revision stored in the lock is the same as the repository it is currently in.

Returns the usable managers for the dependency. This can be used if the SCM has extra knowledge of the dependency, otherwise it should return an empty list.

This behaviour function updates dependencies. It may be called by deps.get or deps.update.

accepts_options(app, opts)

View Source
accepts_options(app :: atom(), opts()) :: opts() | nil

This behaviour function receives a keyword list of opts and should return an updated list in case the SCM consumes the available options. For example, when a developer specifies a dependency:

{:foo, "0.1.0", github: "foo/bar"}

Each registered SCM will be asked if they consume this dependency, receiving [github: "foo/bar"] as argument. Since this option makes sense for the Git SCM, it will return an update list of options while other SCMs would simply return nil.

checked_out?(opts)

View Source
checked_out?(opts()) :: boolean()

This behaviour function returns a boolean if the dependency is available.

Link to this callback

checkout(opts)

View Source
checkout(opts()) :: any()

This behaviour function checks out dependencies.

If the dependency is locked, a lock is received in opts and the repository must be check out at the lock. Otherwise, no lock is given and the repository can be checked out to the latest version.

It must return the current lock.

equal?(opts1, opts2)

View Source
equal?(opts1 :: opts(), opts2 :: opts()) :: boolean()

Receives two options and must return true if they refer to the same repository. The options are guaranteed to belong to the same SCM.

Link to this callback

fetchable?()

View Source
fetchable?() :: boolean()

Returns a boolean if the dependency can be fetched or it is meant to be previously available in the file system.

Local dependencies (i.e. non-fetchable ones) are automatically recompiled every time the parent project is compiled.

Returns a string representing the SCM. This is used when printing the dependency and not for inspection, so the amount of information should be concise and easy to spot.

format_lock(opts)

View Source
format_lock(opts()) :: String.t() | nil

Returns a string representing the SCM. This is used when printing the dependency and not for inspection, so the amount of information should be concise and easy to spot.

If nil is returned, it means no lock information is available.

lock_status(opts)

View Source
lock_status(opts()) :: :mismatch | :outdated | :ok

This behaviour function checks the status of the lock. In particular, it checks if the revision stored in the lock is the same as the repository it is currently in.

It may return:

  • :mismatch - if the lock doesn't match and we need to simply move to the latest lock

  • :outdated - the repository options are outdated in the lock and we need to trigger a full update

  • :ok - everything is fine

The lock is sent via opts[:lock] but it may not always be available. In such cases, if the SCM requires a lock, it must return :mismatch, otherwise simply :ok.

Note the lock may also belong to another SCM and as such, an structural check is required. A structural mismatch should always return :outdated.

managers(opts)

View Source
managers(opts()) :: [atom()]

Returns the usable managers for the dependency. This can be used if the SCM has extra knowledge of the dependency, otherwise it should return an empty list.

Link to this callback

update(opts)

View Source
update(opts()) :: any()

This behaviour function updates dependencies. It may be called by deps.get or deps.update.

In the first scenario, a lock is received in opts and the repository must be updated to the lock. In the second, no lock is given and the repository can be updated freely.

It must return the current lock.
