Hi guys,

I just finished getting this to a beta state, so it's live now. It's a clone of the original packages.gentoo.org website, and hey, the search function works! :)

http://packages.larrythecow.org/

Here's my blog post with all the info, lemme know if you guys find any bugs or have questions.

Edit: Just fixed a bug so you can search on category/package now. Actually, it'll take full atoms.

Yah, I'm gonna get to that ... it's just that I really suck at creating these things, and I'm not too excited about whipping one up. Add to the fact that the entire backend is only updated once daily, and it doesn't really make for a good feed.

So I'm thinking I'll probably work on getting the updates more regular first. Or not. Who knows. Either way, I'll get some feeds going.

Thanks - I had a short, vicious fight with the official site only a couple of weeks ago,
trying to find some ghostscript-related stuff. (The site won ...). A usable on-line
package database is one of the things that really makes Gentoo worthwhile for me;
it's almost as important as the quality of the (very good) documentation.

Thanks again - Will

Wow, that's a pretty sweet site - thanks a LOT for your work - I used the old pgo site all the time and was sad to see it go down.

Excellent! Excellent!
We are not worthy!

What would it take to make it the official packages.gentoo.org ?

I love the layout! Small bug though; Packages such as gnome-desktop (and others from the 2.22 release) are incorrectly being marked as ~arch (testing) while in truth they are still hardmasked.

Thanks for catching that. The code to mask ebuilds is real mess, and needs to be cleaned up.

Thanks for that contribution! Has it been proposed to incorporate it into the official p.g.o? I also assume when you say that it is a clone of the original p.g.o, that you mean a clone EXCEPT the vulnerability that was found which caused p.g.o. to be taken down in the first place? :)

No, no real plans to make it official, as its hosted on my servers, and there's a lot of backend stuff that I need to optimize before it's more independent.

Yah, it's a complete rewrite. Pretty much the design is the only thing that's stayed the same. The first one was in Python, this is in PHP 5. The whole project was partly a proof-of-concept of what you can do with getting (most of) portage's metadata into a database.

Thanks very much for doing this, it's been a huge convenience.

By the way, I created a Firefox/Opensearch plugin for the site in case anyone else finds it handy.

when p/g/o first went down, I discovered eix (it is in portage).
Out of curiosity, what do you who love the functionality of this site, and sites like it use it for that eix does not provide?

I like being able to search portage for packages while not necessarily using a gentoo system, and/or without having to sync my system. Gentoo has so many packages organized so sanely that it's a wonderful resource for any computer.

Plus, a pgo search is simply faster, and prettier.

Ahh, hadn't considered the linux, but not gentoo situation. I guess I had blinders on.
Thanks for responding.

It's even useful for windows on some occasions. Some very nice programs I've discovered on pgo turned out to have windows versions as well.

If you haven't seen it already, I'd recommend http://gnomefiles.org/ as well, another great little packages website

packages.larrythecow.org works great for me! Thank you beandog.
Is it possible to make search engine a little bit more accurate? For example when i search for opera ebuild it returns 2 pages with packages that contains opera within, is it possible when i search "opera" to search for the exact pattern ?

Try ^opera$

I need an advanced search, I know. They are just not easy to write.

Edit: nevermind, that should have worked. I forgot I changed it to search *only* on atom. Lame. I'll fix.
