Workspace Projects Builder Script

Post by mgag »

Something I use to create a Zeus Workspace that has multiple "projects" that are actually the same project that is sync'd to a different changelist - basically each project is a different clientspec (to use perforce nomenclature). This script also helps if you need to create a project that has a filespec that is a much smaller subset of the total files available (Zeus Workspace Builder wasn't great for this, but with 3.97t it might be a lot better).

Note that you need to edit the script for your particular path/client setup.

Code: Select all

# ZeusCreateProject
# Purpose: create workspace file from a list of directories.
# This script is helpful IF you have a large amount of source
# directories and you only want a small subset of those directories.
# Zeus itself provides the WorkSpace Builder which does a good job, but
# it can be tedious to remove a lot of directories it finds.
# To use this script you must provide a list of directories - see the
# EDIT section below.  Note this script will add sub-directories of
# the directory list.
# After this script completes, open Zeus and open the Workspace file you created.
# It may take a long time to load as Zeus will create a tags database for the WorkSpace.
# Within the WorkSpace project, the files will be organized by directory,
# making source file browsing similiar to browsing a dir tree.
import glob, os, sys
from xml.dom.minidom import Document

if not len(sys.argv) == 2:
    print("Usage: ZeusCreateProject workSpaceName")
