bric_republish - republishes stories automatically
--help - shows this screen --man - shows the full documentation --verbose - print a running description to STDERR. Add a second --verbose and you'll get debugging output too. Without this option bric_republish is silent when successful. --server - specifies the Bricolage server URL, defaults to the BRICOLAGE_SERVER environment variable if set, http://localhost otherwise. --username - the Bricolage username, defaults to the BRICOLAGE_USERNAME environment variable if set. --password - the password for the Bricolage user. Default to the BRICOLAGE_PASSWORD environment variable if set. --story-id - specify a single story to publish --no-media - don't publish related media with story. By default all related media are published with each story. --element - only publish stories of this element (story type) --category - only publish stories in this category, specified by path --chunks - publish stories in chunks of this many. Defaults to 0, which means to process them all at once. This option can be used to avoid timing out on large jobs. --timeout - specify the HTTP timeout for SOAP requests in seconds. Defaults to 30.
This program publishes stories with no user interaction required. In its default mode it finds all stories that have been been published at least once (publish_status is 1) and are not on any desks. This is useful to automatically update stories after element and template changes. Also, some elements may have automated functionality that benefits from being republished periodically - a "new stories" box on a Cover, for example.
The most common use of this program will be from cron. Setup a crontab like this to republish all stories hourly:
BRICOLAGE_USERNAME=admin BRICOLAGE_PASSWORD=admin_pass PATH=/usr/local/bricolage/bin:$PATH MAILTOfirstname.lastname@example.org 0 * * * * bric_republish
Or to republish Covers hourly and everything else once a day at 11:30
BRICOLAGE_USERNAME=admin BRICOLAGE_PASSWORD=admin_pass PATH=/usr/local/bricolage/bin:$PATH MAILTOemail@example.com 0 * * * * bric_republish --element Cover 30 11 * * * bric_republish
Or to republish all stories every other hour but never republish media:
BRICOLAGE_USERNAME=admin BRICOLAGE_PASSWORD=admin_pass PATH=/usr/local/bricolage/bin:$PATH MAILTOfirstname.lastname@example.org 0 */2 * * * bric_republish --no-media
