Simple Artifactory plugin for total size of Artefacts in local repositories

I’ve done a little plugin I hope might be useful for others who would like to know what is the total size of artefacts stored by Artifactory in local repository.

The functionality is quite simple:

  1. You can obtain a size of a repository by sending a POST request to url: /artifactory/api/plugins/execute/getRepositorySize?params=repoName=repository-name
  2. You can obtain a report in a form of a JSON Array for all local repositories by sending a POST request to url: /artifactory/api/plugins/execute/getAllRepositorySizes

Plugin code and a sample JSON response for all repository sizes below.

Just want to add that JFrog did a brilliant work with their very simple and elegant Artifactory API.

To install plugin just copy the RepositorySize.groovy file to ARTIFACTORY_HOME/etc/plugins folder.

 

Groovy Map to Json String converter

I use Groovy a lot. It’s simple and easy to use, runs on JVM and saves me from Java verbosity. I also like the fact that it’s dynamic.

I use it with a simple Servlet to return data to JavaScript AJAX requests. I like to keep the server side very simple, so I don’t create a lot of POJOs and I’m using HashMaps instead. Groovy has few convenient methods that makes it easy to work with Maps.

I do convert the maps into JSON when returning results to a browser. I don’t use anything fancy, just a couple lines of Groovy code to do that.

With this code there is quite a bit of assumptions though:

  • it will only work for Map
  • it assumes Strings are used as Map Keys
  • it will convert Maps, Lists and Objects
  • when it meets Object it will call .toString() on it to get it’s value
  • it will try to format it with tabs and new lines a bit, so it’s more pleasant for the eye and human readable

Hope it would be useful for you. Greg
