Charmcraft release 1.7.0 – Call for testing!

Charmcraft supports the development of operators using the Charmed Operator Framework. It enables developers to build, upload and release operators on Charmhub and collaboration through charm libraries.

This new version was just released to candidate channel, we’d appreciate any tests on this, please report here any issues you find. Once we find this is solid enough, we will release it to stable.

It includes the following changes:

  • The 22.04 base is now supported (related issue).

  • Improved error messages for the JujuMetadata and other linters (related issue).

  • Better support for packing charms using Multipass provider in environments without snapd.

  • Enhanced the revisions and other commands’ outputs to show detailed timestamps (related issue).

  • The pack command now includes by default the actions directory, if present (related issue).

  • A keyring is not longer required in the system when using the --export option in the login command (related issue).

  • The entrypoint is now always validated to be correct, even if it’s the default src/ (related issue).

  • Produced a specification for Charmcraft Programmatic Outputs.

  • Fixed the user interaction in the --shell option for the pack command (related issue).

Use Charmcraft to:

We recommend the Charmed Operator Framework for charm development, but Charmcraft will help you publish charms written in any language. The Charmed Operator Framework enables the development of operators in a simple and straightforward way, using standard Python structures to allow for clean, maintainable, and reusable code.

Happy charming!

Released to stable now.

Just released 1.7.1 to candidate with a quick fix:

  • Validate that the charm’s entry point exists and is executable after the lifecycle process (as it may be generated during that process) (related issue)

After some in real life testing, 1.7.1 was released to stable.
