I have released an improved version of easy_update. It is available via github: https://github.com/FredHutch/easybuild-life-sciences/ In the Scripts directory. The README.md file in the scripts directory is the man page for easy_update. Please file and issue with our repo if you encounter problems.
Many bugs have been fixed and there are a few new features. --search [package name] easy_update will search a repository for a single package on the command line. The output is in a format that can be cut/pasted into and easyconfig file. --meta Output all metadata about a package from a repository. This is handy for debugging issues with a package. --pyver, --rver, --biocver; These three flag are to be used with the Search feature. Either use pyver for PyPi or rver and biocver for searching CRAN and BioConductor. At the FredHutch we have combined R packages and BioCondutor packages into a single R package. To implement having packages from multiple repositories in one easyconfig the variable; biocver must be defined. I hope you can find this tool useful, John Dey HPC Operations SciComp Computing O 206.667.4308 M 360.649.2731 jf...@fredhutch.org<mailto:jf...@fredhutch.org> SciComp Office Hours Wed. 10-noon M4-B102 [ttp://www.fredhutch.org/content/dam/public/email-signatures/3/fred_hutch_logo.png]<http://www.fredhutch.org/> Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center 1100 Fairview Ave. N., Mail Stop J4-402 Seattle, WA 98109 fredhutch.org<http://www.fredhutch.org/>
