I’d like to announce here a few things regarding check.ocamllabs.io. To recall, this website is an interface to find out which opam packages are broken with a given set of OCaml compilers.
First of all some features, I hope useful for everyone, have been added:
- Log search: gives you the possibility to filter the packages by whether or not it contains any given [posix regexp] in their logs. This feature is a bit slow for obvious reasons so expect a 10 to 20 seconds delay if you use this feature.
- The diff page: A page on the website (see link on the top right) is now dedicated to show the differences between the current check and the previous check (the tool checks every two days and takes approximately one and a half day to finish, sometimes more because the service has to be restarted for maintenance reasons).
I’d like also to ask here if anybody would have any idea of a new name for the tool itself. For now its name is opam-check-all but I find this name not good and would like to find a new one like maybe
opam-health or maybe something more original but I have no idea. If somebody has any ideas please submit them here.
For the future I want to add again more features like: revdeps counter (suggested by @bluddy on the last post about opam-check-all), add a way of viewing all the packages despite being not available on any of the switches (not shown at the time), or automatically send the diff for each run by email somewhere (another solution of an improvement suggested by @UnixJunkie on the last post again)
Keep sending me features requests in the comments on over on github if you have ideas.
