Custom Dep Resources

Each dependency resource must implement the rebar_resource behaviour.



-type resource() :: {type(), location(), ref()}.
-type type() :: atom().
-type location() :: string().
-type ref() :: any().

-callback lock(file:filename_all(), tuple()) ->
-callback download(file:filename_all(), tuple(), rebar_state:t()) ->
    {tarball, file:filename_all()} | {ok, any()} | {error, any()}.
-callback needs_update(file:filename_all(), tuple()) ->
-callback make_vsn(file:filename_all()) ->
    {plain, string()} | {error, string()}.

Included with rebar3 are rebar_git_resource, rebar_hg_resource and rebar_pkg_resource.

A custom resource can be included the same way as a plugin. An example of this can be seen in Kelly McLaughlin's rebar3_tidy_deps resource:



-spec init(rebar_state:t()) -> {ok, rebar_state:t()}.
init(State) ->
    {ok, rebar_state:add_resource(State, {github, rebar_github_resource})}.

This resource rebar_github_resource which implements the rebar3 resource behaviour is added to the list of resources available in rebar_state. Adding the repo as a plugin to rebar.config allows this resource to be used:

{mydep, {github, "kellymclauglin/mydep.git", {tag, "1.0.1"}}}.

{plugins, [
    {rebar_tidy_deps, ".*", {git, "", {tag, "0.0.2"}}}
