Gollum – Auto sync to git remote repository

Update @ 2015-09-23: Frank suggested using incron to execute the sync base on file changes instead of time periods. Thanks!.

Whenever you have edited any page on Gollum, it will committed to the local repository which is checked out on the server. These commits WILL NOT be pushed to the Git Server. Similarly any push to the Git server will not sync to the repository running Gollum as it won’t execute git pull neither.

You may think of using the Git post-commit hook to trigger the synchronization whenever a commit is done but Gollum run Grit as the Git adapter and Grit doesn’t support hook.

A workaround suggested by Rod Hilton is to setup a cronjob and keep running the git push and pull on the server running Gollum.

So add the following sync.sh to your Gollum project root. Continue reading Gollum – Auto sync to git remote repository

Django – Schedule django-admin command using django-chronograph

Previously we talked about setting up some custom command in a Django project.

 

I would like to run the custom command in a regular interval. I could use Linux cronjob but it’s hard to manage and check the run history. It would be great if i could setup and manage these scheduled commands on the Django web portal.

django-chronograph, written by wnielson, is a Python Package which allows us to schedule any django-admin command through the web interface. It works well with the UTC timezone but if you have set the TIME_ZONE in your Django project setting.py, there would be time discrepancy.

For more detail about the bug, you can refer to the Issue #36 – Job doesn’t follow the Django’s TIME_ZONE setting.
