Adding a sourceΒΆ

Sources are used to provide a BugZoo installation with plugins and bugs in a decentralised manner. Each source is given a unique name and is supplied to BugZoo as either a local directory or a remote Git repository. Sources are added via the CLI using the bugzoo source add command. Below is an example of creating a new source named my-plugin-source for a local directory, dir-foo.

$ mkdir dir-foo
$ bugzoo source add my-plugin-source dir-foo

Sources can also be provided to BugZoo in the form of remote Git repositories. Below is an example of how we create a new source named ManyBugs for the ManyBugs repository on GitHub.

$ bugzoo source add manybugs

Internally, BugZoo will clone the given Git repository to the sources subdirectory of the BugZoo directory (specified by $BUGZOO_PATH, and located at ${HOME}/.bugzoo by default). The state of all registered remote repositories can be updated to reflect changes to the remote repo using bugzoo source update:

$ bugzoo source update

To obtain the contents (i.e., bugs and tools) of a source, BugZoo recursively scans the directory for the source for all of its manifest files, which are recognised as files that end with .bugzoo.yml.
