PkgServerClient

Build Status Coverage 中文README

Julia >= v"1.4" is required to use the Pkg server feature.

A list of 3rd-party Julia pkg/storage server mirror are provided in the registry, this package gives you a way to automatically switch to the nearest one in terms of RTT(round trip time).

In plain words, you could manually switch Julia pkg server by setting environment variable JULIA_PKG_SERVER, and all that this package do is to set this variable automatically and smartly.

Example

You only need to load this package in order to use it. Note that the environment variable JULIA_PKG_SERVER is set after you load this package.

julia> versioninfo()

julia> using PkgServerClient

julia> versioninfo()
Julia Version 1.6.0
Commit f9720dc2eb (2021-03-24 12:55 UTC)
Platform Info:
  OS: macOS (x86_64-apple-darwin19.6.0)
  CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i9-9880H CPU @ 2.30GHz
  WORD_SIZE: 64
  LIBM: libopenlibm
  LLVM: libLLVM-11.0.1 (ORCJIT, skylake)
Environment:
  JULIA_PKG_SERVER = https://mirrors.sjtug.sjtu.edu.cn/julia

Note that if you already have JULIA_PKG_SERVER environment set, then loading this package is a no-op; nothing will change.

You could optionally add the following line to $JULIA_DEPOT_PATH/config/startup.jl (by default it is ~/.julia/config/startup.jl) so that every time when you start Julia, it points you to the nearest pkg server.

if VERSION >= v"1.4"
    try
        using PkgServerClient
    catch e
        @warn "error while importing PkgServerClient" e
    end
end

Also note that it is not guaranteed which JULIA_PKG_SERVER will be set when you load this package. If you wish, you could manually call PkgServerClient.generate_startup([server = <nearest-server>]), which will write the following code to your startup.jl file.

`ENV["JULIA_PKG_SERVER"] = <server-url>

For example:

julia> PkgServerClient.generate_startup("JuliaLang")
┌ Info: Update PkgServer
│   NewServer = "https://pkg.julialang.org"
│   OldServer = "https://mirrors.bfsu.edu.cn/julia"
└   ConfigFile = "/Users/jc/.julia/config/startup.jl"

Get registry information

Furthermore, if you're interested, you could check the registry with PkgServerClient.registry and PkgServerClient.registry_response_time(). As of the time of writing, here it's what I get in China:

julia> PkgServerClient.registry
Dict{String, NamedTuple{(:org, :url), Tuple{String, String}}} with 8 entries:
  "BFSU"      => (org = "北京外国语大学开源软件镜像站", url = "https://mirrors.bfsu.edu.cn/julia")
  "OpenTUNA"  => (org = "OpenTUNA开源镜像站 -- TUNA 协会", url = "https://opentuna.cn/julia")
  "SJTUG"     => (org = "上海交通大学Linux用户组 (SJTUG) 软件源镜像服务", url = "https://mirrors.sjtug.sjtu.edu.cn/julia")
  "USTC"      => (org = "中国科学技术大学开源软件镜像", url = "https://mirrors.ustc.edu.cn/julia")
  "SUSTech"   => (org = "南方科技大学开源镜像站", url = "http://mirrors.sustech.edu.cn/julia")
  "TUNA"      => (org = "清华大学开源软件镜像站 -- TUNA 协会", url = "https://mirrors.tuna.tsinghua.edu.cn/julia")
  "JuliaLang" => (org = "The official Julia pkg server", url = "https://pkg.julialang.org")
  "NJU"       => (org = "南京大学开源镜像站", url = "https://mirrors.nju.edu.cn/julia")

julia> PkgServerClient.registry_response_time()
Dict{String, Float64} with 8 entries:
  "BFSU"      => 0.0323085
  "OpenTUNA"  => 0.146376
  "SJTUG"     => 0.0093373
  "USTC"      => 0.230767
  "SUSTech"   => 0.269097
  "TUNA"      => 0.184747
  "JuliaLang" => Inf
  "NJU"       => 0.0445983

It might be outdated, but you get the idea.

Adding new mirrors

Modify registry.jl and that's all!

Acknowledgement

The mirror set functionality originally lived in JuliaZH.jl. I added the auto-switch part and thus made it an independent package.
