Changelog

[0.7.2] -- 2021-06-24

  • Update to yacman 0.8.0, fixing references to internal config attributes.
  • Add documentation and clarity for the shell_prompt option
  • Fixed bug with relative crate root folders.

[0.7.1] -- 2021-03-03

  • Fixed bug in bulker reload.

[0.7.0] -- 2021-03-02

  • EXPERIMENTAL: Added bulker cwl2man to create a bulker manifest from a CWL file.
  • BREAKING CHANGE: Renamed the bulker load arguments: the --manifest short arg changed from -f to -m; --force changed from -r to -f. This is to be more consistent with the names. Since I doubt many people are using this in script, I don't think this will break much, if anything.
  • Added new option for -r, --recurse to bulker load, which recursively re-loads all imported manifests.
  • Added new bulker reload command, that reloads all manifests.
  • Added bulker envvars, which allows you to list, add (-a VAR), or remove (-r VAR) environment variables to the bulker config from the CLI.
  • Added bulker unload to remove a loaded manifest.

[0.6.0] -- 2020-07-10

  • Allowed bulker run to gracefully handle interrupts, passing them to the child process.
  • Implemented -p, which doesn't update prompts, for compatibility with jupyter notebooks
  • Fixed a bug with using the default config
  • Added capability to exclude volumes from specific containers
  • Fixed a bug with singularity exec template

[0.4.0] -- 2019-12-16

  • Better error message if user tries to activate a crate with no crates loaded.
  • Uses default shell by default, and can be specified with the shell_path in config.

[0.3.0] -- 2019-10-21

  • Renamed 'dockerargs' to 'docker_args' and 'singularityargs' to 'singularity_args', which is more consistent with other attribute styles.
  • Implemented prototype container entry system, whereby you may type _command after activating a crate to enter an interactive shell of the container that is used to run that command.
  • Initial implementation of 'imports' domain capability.
  • Added the tool_args bulker config section for host-specific and image-specific settings

[0.2.4] -- 2019-10-11

  • Fixed a bug with file locks that prevented activating environments
  • Relative paths for singularity images in the bulker config are now made relative to the config file, rather than to the working directory.

[0.2.3] -- 2019-10-08

  • Fixed a bug with using the built-in config file

  • Major changes to the registry path treatment to accommodate tags
  • Local/remote manifests are now loaded with -f

  • Config format includes a new hierarchical level for crate tags
