If case you're interested in developing on borgmatic, here's an abridged primer on how its Python source code is organized to help you get started. At the top level we have:
- borgmatic: The main borgmatic source module. Most of the code is here.
- docs: How-to and reference documentation, including the document you're reading now.
- sample: Example configurations for cron and systemd.
- scripts: Dev-facing scripts for things like building documentation and running end-to-end tests.
- tests: Automated tests organized by: end-to-end, integration, and unit.
borgmatic directory you'll find:
- actions: Mid-level code for running each borgmatic action (create, list, check, etc.).
- borg: Lower-level code that actually shells out to Borg for each action.
- commands: Looking to add a new flag or action? Start here. This contains borgmatic's entry point, argument parsing, and shell completion.
- config: Code responsible for loading, normalizing, and validating borgmatic's configuration.
- hooks: Looking to add a new database or monitoring integration? Start here.
So, broadly speaking, the control flow goes:
