@bposselt: thx! Updated to 9.0.0.

Unfortunately this version still has the following bug:
Will update as soon as a new release fixes this.

I've released 9.0.0 and moved the testrun stuff to --mode singlerun and --mode endless since the systemd timer stuff works out just fine. Also reflected in the README

bposselt commented on 2016-05-03 21:15

Yes, please explain this in an issue :)

As long as we don't need lockfiles this should be fine.

@bposselt: I'm inluding the timer to be able to have cron functionality. Note that I mention to only use the timer if testrun=true in the install file of this package. This works quite fine at the moment, but I have an update timing of 15min.

I'm aware of how you'd like to implement this, but also this leaves a sysadmin with a longrunning process, that might not be desirable and a service, that can not be timed using the timing functionality of the overall system.
This also includes not being able to setup dependencies in a copy of the service file to /etc/systemd/system.
One might want to do the following: Have a timer start the updater. Have the updater service check if a certain socket is started (for example if using uwsgi as application server to serve owncloud) and only start then (because otherwise there will be nothing to update).
If you like, I can write a bug report for this and explain further?

I've added some troubleshooting sections :)

Hi dvzrv, great job :)

Any reason why you are including a systemd timer file? The updater script already works like this:

* Update all feeds
* If the time taken to update all feeds is greater than the interval parameter, run an update again
* If the time taken to update all feeds is lower than the interval parameter, sleep for that many seconds, then start the update again

If I understood the timer docs correctly, your timer will start hundreds of (never exiting) daemons throughout a day.

@shujie: Thanks!

Updated to latest version, updated optdepends and additional files.

Updated to 8.4.0:

Now includes the possibility to set a separate php.ini when using the script locally.

@shujie: Please orphan this package, if you don't want to/ can mantain it any longer.
