Macports

JReleaser can generate and publish a Macports Portfile into a repository that you have access to.

The macports section specifies how the Portfile should be created.

The following artifact extensions are supported by this packager:

  • .zip

  • .dmg

Publication of snapshots is not allowed.

Legend:

  • required

  • optional

  • may use environment variable

  • accepts Name Templates

  • YAML

  • TOML

  • JSON

  • Maven

  • Gradle

Tokens

The repository token environment variable must match with the chosen Release service that is, it must be one of:
  • JRELEASER_MACPORTS_GITHUB_TOKEN

  • JRELEASER_MACPORTS_GITLAB_TOKEN

  • JRELEASER_MACPORTS_GITEA_TOKEN

  • JRELEASER_MACPORTS_CODEBERG_TOKEN

If a matching token is not found then the releaser’s token will be used instead:

  • JRELEASER_GITHUB_TOKEN

  • JRELEASER_GITLAB_TOKEN

  • JRELEASER_GITEA_TOKEN

  • JRELEASER_CODEBERG_TOKEN

On GitHub, you can’t use the default secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN as this token only works for the repository that’s running the workflow. You must configure a Personal Access Token instead.

DownloadURL

JReleaser follows these rules to find the download URL to use for a given artifact:

  1. if artifact.extraProperties.macportsDownloadUrl exists, use it.

  2. if artifact.extraProperties.downloadUrl exists, use it.

  3. if explicit downloadUrl is set on macports, use it.

  4. if distribution.extraProperties.macportsDownloadUrl exists, use it.

  5. if distribution.extraProperties.downloadUrl exists, use it.

  6. if releaser.${git}.skipRelease is false then use the releaser’s downloadUrl.

  7. if releaser.${git}.skipRelease is true then look for a matching uploader given an extraProperty named downloadUrlFrom on artifact, distribution, `macports (in that order). The value must be <uploaderType>:<uploaderName> such as "artifactory:app" or "s3:uploads".

  8. fail if no suitable URL is found.

With no extra configuration from your side rule 6. will be chosen which is the suitable default that most projects need.

Assuming the current version is 1.2.3, and a distribution named app, the above configuration will generate a ports/devel/app/Porfile file in the duke/macports repository:

You are then responsible for submitting a ticket to MacPorts for updating an existing port of adding a new port. JReleaser does not create a ticker nor a pull request for you.

Please consult the MacPorts guide to know more.

AppName

JReleaser calculates the value of the containing app directory when packaging a Native Package distribution for macOs and a .dmg file. The default value matches {{distributionName}}.app. If a different value were to be needed then set the appName extra property on the macports packager. This property accepts Name Templates.

Skip Artifacts

If there is more than one matching artifact in a given distribution you may add a skipMacports extra property to the target artifact to mark it as skipped for packaging with Macports.

Templates

The default location for templates is:

src/jreleaser/distributions/<distribution-name>/macports

The following list shows the filenames that may be used to override default templates:

  • Portfile.tpl

Any additional files found in the template directories will be copied as is unless their filename ends with .tpl in which case Name Templates substitution will take place.

Templates may be initialized using the template command
