gitea.devuan.dev

This project contains the setup and customization for gitea.devuan.dev. The setup is password protected via a “vault” directory that is mounted on a “temp” directory with gocryptfs. The vault is used with scripts vault/open.sh and vault/close.sh. Vault password is the same as the postgresql database password.

gitea setup

The setup is the single file app.ini which gets installed as /etc/gitea/app.ini. See https://docs.gitea.io/en-us/config-cheat-sheet/ for details.

gitea customisation

The custom directory tree is installed as /var/lib/gitea/custom, and it contains all WUI customisation. See https://docs.gitea.io/en-us/customizing-gitea/ for details.

gitea installation

These are some specific details about Devuan’s gitea installation.

Run user git, group git. The home area is for adminstration purposes only, where in particular:

  • the downloaded binary gitea-1.12-linux-amd64 is kept at $HOME, although also copied and installed as /usr/local/bin/gitea.

  • $HOME/gitea-repositories is a link for the actual repository store, /var/lib/gitea/gitea-repositories.

  • $HOME/postgresql/.s.PGSQL.5432 is a link for the actual postgresql socket in use, since that moves around a bit if there are multiple postgresql version installed (which there are).

  • $HOME/log is a link for the gitea log directory, /var/lib/gitea/log.

  • $HOME/run.sh is a by-minute cron bot to ensure gitea is running, using /var/lib/gitea/log/run.log as “mutex” and for capturing stdout/stderr.

  • $HOME/trimlog.sh is a daily cron bot to trim down log/run.log daily, and keep the cut-out with a date tag.

  • $HOME/rdb.sh is a helper script for running psql on the gitea database, if ever it needs some hardcore hands-on.

  • $HOME/src/gitea is a clone of https://github.com/go-gitea/gitea.git used as the basis for the Devuan customisation

  • $HOME/src/setup is a clone of https://gitea.devuan.dev/devuan/gitea.git for the Devuan setup and customisation of gitea

  • $HOME/src/trimfile is a clone of https://gitea.devuan.dev/rrq/trimfile.git for the log file trimming utility.

/var/lib/gitea is a separately mounted file system dedicated for gitea. Everything gitea is there, apart from that in ~git/, and /etc/gitea/app.ini, and the crontab for ~git.
