Just I in case I need to port to OpenSuSE properly

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/07/24

I came across a nice tool that combines httpd.conf files:

python /etc/apache2/httpd.conf /tmp/apache2.combined.conf

In case I ever need to fully port it to OpenSuSE, I’ve put it in the gist below.

For now it works fine on OpenSuSE when used with the above command. I might make the default depend on the kind of nx it runs on.



__author__ = 'ben'
import sys, os, os.path, logging, fnmatch
def Help():
print("Usage: python inputfile[default:/etc/apache2/apache2.conf] outputfile[default:/tmp/apache2.combined.conf")
def InputParameter():
if len(sys.argv) <> 3:
return "/etc/apache2/apache2.conf", "/tmp/apache2.combined.conf"
return sys.argv[1], sys.argv[2]
def ProcessMultipleFiles(InputFiles):
Content = ''
LocalFolder = os.path.dirname(InputFiles)
basenamePattern = os.path.basename(InputFiles)
for root, dirs, files in os.walk(LocalFolder):
for filename in fnmatch.filter(files, basenamePattern):
Content += ProcessInput(os.path.join(root, filename))
return Content
def RemoveExcessiveLinebreak(s):
Length = len(s)
s = s.replace(os.linesep + os.linesep + os.linesep, os.linesep + os.linesep)
NewLength = len(s)
if NewLength < Length:
s = RemoveExcessiveLinebreak(s)
return s
def ProcessInput(InputFile):
Content = ''
if logging.root.isEnabledFor(logging.DEBUG):
Content = '# Start of ' + InputFile + os.linesep
with open(InputFile, 'r') as infile:
for line in infile:
stripline = line.strip(' \t')
if stripline.startswith('#'):
if stripline.lower().startswith('include'):
match = stripline.split()
if len(match) == 2:
IncludeFiles = match[1]
IncludeFiles = IncludeFiles.strip('"') #Inserted according to V's comment.
if not IncludeFiles.startswith('/'):
LocalFolder = os.path.dirname(InputFile)
IncludeFiles = os.path.join(LocalFolder, IncludeFiles)
Content += ProcessMultipleFiles(IncludeFiles) + os.linesep
Content += line # if it is not pattern of 'include(optional) path', then continue.
Content += line
Content = RemoveExcessiveLinebreak(Content)
if logging.root.isEnabledFor(logging.DEBUG):
Content += '# End of ' + InputFile + os.linesep + os.linesep
return Content
if __name__ == "__main__":
logging.basicConfig(level=logging.DEBUG, format='[%(asctime)s][%(levelname)s]:%(message)s')
InputFile, OutputFile = InputParameter()
Content = ProcessInput(InputFile)
except Exception as e:
logging.error("Failed to process " + InputFile, exc_info=True)
with open(OutputFile, 'w') as outfile:
except Exception as e:
logging.error("Failed to write to " + outfile, exc_info=True)
exit(1)"Done writing " + OutputFile)
