External Repository Update Status.

For connecting with external repository services such as github or bitbucket in order to obtain update status information for custom work.


By default ERUS will pick up any module that uses the project status url option in the .info file of the module or feature.

project status url = ''

ERUS module will attempt to gather information from the update status url in order to check the external service. ERUS comes with a built in plugin. All you would need to add to your features that are stored on github is the path to the github project page. EG: for ERUS

project status url = ''

You may also add specific configuration settings for each of your modules and features no matter where they are hosted. Add the following to the .info file of the project that is hosted with an external repository service.

erus[plugin] = plugin_name
erus[account] = remote-account-name
erus[project] = *optional_project_name*

eg: for

erus[plugin] =
erus[account] = SU-SWS
erus[project] = stanford_person

WARNING This module will break your 'drush up' command unless all used plugins provide a valid md5 checksum and the download file unpacks with the exact same name as the module.

If your 'drush up' fails to validate md5 checksums or replaces module directories with invalid names you can use the included package-handler to remedy those ailments.

eg: drush up --package-handler=erus_wget

By providing the --package-handler option you will be able to continue to use drush up.

Also included in this module is a wrapper for the above. Simply use the drush eup command to accomplish the same thing.

eg: drush eup
