Packages 3.2 released!
After a somewhat long wait, I'm pleased to announce the latest version of Packages which acts as a mini-CI service and allows you to host a private Composer repository. Packages has been in service for many years now and this latest version brings many improvements!
Probably the most noticeable features are the design tweaks on the landing page, as well as the new Available Packages page that lists all the projects and versions provided by the repository. In addition, many usability issues were worked out and a bunch of stuff was reworded to be much more clear.
Another big feature is the ability to fully secure Satis-related files behind a login. When Composer tries to fetch the packages.json file, it will prompt you for the username and password-- the same as configured to access the backend management. If security is enabled (by specifying
secure_satis: true in config.yml), the Available Packages page will also be secured behind the login.
And a few more:
- Added ability to create dist archives (
archive: truein config.yml)
- Added ability to customize company and contact information
- Added example docker-compose.yml to get you up and started in a snap!
- Various internal upgrades, like the ability for plugins to bind HTTP handlers and compiler passes.

Introducing the MOTKI CLI
I've been playing EVE again lately-- started a corp, it's getting really serious. So naturally, I decided to build an online presence for my corporation and tooling to help me optimize my carebear experience.
What started out as a web application has now become a pretty neat technical experiment on building a mid-sized project with Go. I used protobuf to create a client/server layer with code being shared between. I was able to leverage the client side of things to create a command line tool that interacts with a remote motkid installation.
Ner..I mean, neat!
The goal for the application was to create a set of customized tools tailored to meet my needs. Especially, I wanted something that could tell me what I was missing to produce a certain item.
This first pre-release of the MOTKI command-line interface includes a production chain feature that allows a user to set up arbitrary production chains, including the ability to either buy or manufacture the required materials. It pulls down average market prices for the products to produce a basic cost analysis.
For example, here's the output for a Guardian:
Guardian Domain # Material Name Cost/ea Qty Req Cost/unit 1 Tritanium 5.78 550,265 3,180,531.82 2 Pyerite 6.01 110,053 661,418.56 3 Mexallon 76.29 31,746 2,421,902.37 4 Isogen 52.35 8,254 432,096.89 5 Nocxium 386.97 1,375 532,083.75 6 Zydrine 1,108.45 741 821,361.41 7 Megacyte 1,320.42 128 169,013.77 8 Construction Blocks 12,501.06 71 887,575.23 9 Morphite 10,805.95 86 929,311.72 10 Fusion Thruster M 43,626.36 71 3,097,471.50 11 Radar Sensor Cluster M 29,516.26 250 7,379,065.73 12 Nanoelectrical Microprocess M 60,705.62 1,714 104,049,431.69 13 Tungsten Carbide Armor Plat M 11,342.42 2,143 24,306,798.33 14 Antimatter Reactor Unit M 148,411.69 22 3,265,057.08 15 Tesseract Capacitor Unit M 59,157.90 714 42,238,737.15 16 Linear Shield Emitter M 43,560.71 143 6,229,181.63 Per unit Revenue 215,500,816.00 5% ME Cost 200,601,038.61 Profit 14,899,777.39 Margin % 6.91 * 'M' indicates the component will be produced in-house.
Additionally, it looks at corporation inventory for blueprint copies of the necessary items.
Here's the inventory for the above Guardian:

Pretty cool, huh?
You'll probably also want to create an account on the Moritake Industries website and link your character to enable the production chain functionality in the CLI.
