** Warning: This is an experimental api. It is not a final design, and could be modified in the future. **
Sometimes, you’ll need to store a history of what happened previously, for caching or re-use purposes. In that case, there is a history dictionary available.
import requests def main(build): if not build.history.get("script_downloaded", False): resp = requests.get("http://www.mypage.com/my_script", stream=True) with open(os.path.join(build.root, "my_script"), "wb") as fh: for block in response.iter_content(1024): fh.write(block) build.history["script_downloaded"] = True
The history can store any of the following primitives:
- lists of any storable type
- a dictionary of string keys and any storable type
