UPDATE: www/wallabag-1.8.0

Olivier Mehani
Hi all,

Here is an update to my previous OpenBSD port of the Wallabag
read-it-later application [0].

From my initial post:

  The port is pretty trivial, apart from some playing around with
  dependencies: Wallabag provides an archive (vendor.zip) containing a
  few PHP libraries from various vendors on which the webapp depends.
 
  While the port works well at the moment, I suspect there might be an
  issue when this vendor.zip archive needs be updated, as checksums might
  fail then. It would probably be better to have a vendor-1.6.0.zip
  archive, so we're sure what version we're getting (Wallabag devs are
  Cc'd to this email so they are aware of this potential issue).
 
  Apart from that, the port and webapp work nicely on 5.4-stable with
  httpd and php-5.3.

All comments are most welcome.

Well recent OpenBSD policy about web apps is that it should need
some specific patching for OpenBSD to be as a port (or to be very
very popular so it's needed as a port).

If a web app port just unpacks an archive then it doesn't need to
be a port.

Anyway, you can modify Makefile to use GITHUB* variables (see bsd.port.mk),
also change MESSAGE to readme file.

I didn't test the port, when I tried wallabag i decided that it
does not fit 100% to my needs; if it would behave more like Zotero
then I would use it :)

Fair enough. I'll keep maintaining it for myself, as I find it easier to
have a single database of installed software.

Cheers for that, I'll adjust it.

I see what you mean. The main advantage of Wallabag, or other
read-it-later apps is that this let me postpone procrastination to a
later time, and potentially another device. This is not a general
purpose bookmarking system.
