Announcing cgran.org: Re-launching the Comprehensive GNU Radio Archive Network

Hi all,

I am happy to be able to announce that the Comprehensive GNU Radio
Archive
Network (CGRAN) is now live at http://cgran.org. It’s a bit different
from
the previous version.

Some notes:

  1. The primary purpose of this rendition of CGRAN is to provide a place
    to
    filter and sort through the growing number of OOT modules that meet your
    needs.

  2. If you want to add a bookmark to jump to project listings the best
    URL
    is cgran.org/projects/

  3. No code is hosted by CGRAN. If you need a place to host your projects
    there are several free services to do that which have features and
    services
    we could not possible match, some of which run on completely free
    software.

  4. The list of modules on CGRAN comes from PyBOMBS and CGRAN heavily
    depends on PyBOMBS. If a module has a manifest file we use it to get
    most
    of the information. If there is no manifest file we only know a small
    amount of information.

  5. For module authors that want to improve their presence on CGRAN, add
    a
    MANIFEST.md to the top level of your module repo. The skeleton is at
    https://raw.githubusercontent.com/gnuradio/gnuradio/master/gr-utils/python/modtool/gr-newmod/MANIFEST.md
    and you can view the module repos that have more content on CGRAN for
    examples.

Finally, this wouldn’t look nearly as well as it does without Ravi
Sharan
who put together the overall site layout and feedback from those in the
CGRAN/PyBOMBS working group. This is not the final state of CGRAN as we
tweak the layout and operation, but we want to get it out there for use
and
encourage module authors to add manifest files.

Looks great… congrats.

Hi,

looks great! gnuradio.org in this style would be awesome :wink:

But I have a question about the update mechanism. If I change or add the
manifest file in my repo on github (gr-radar), how does cgran update its
database? Are there any update cycles or is it done manually?

Greetings
Stefan

There are automatic update cycles. The whole design hinges upon us not
having to do any manual intervention.

In a nutshell, we fetch all the recipes for OOTs on a regular basis, run
our CGRAN codes against that, and update the page.

As an OOT maintainer, there’s nothing you need to do except wait a few
hours tops.

Cheers,
M
