Repo taxonomy

JamesInDenver
A basic concept that I haven't understood from the documentation:  What is best practice for configuring repositories?  Should one organizing repos by use in an ALM sense where each repo supports all package types?  Or should there be one repo per package type?

In our environment, we produce artifacts for .NET, Java, NPM, Bower, etc. and etc.  Do we store all production artifacts in one place or break them up by type?

Thanks,
James

Hi James,

It is recommended that repositories be broken up by package type, so for example a NPM virtual repository might contain a remote repository pointing to http://registry.npmjs.org/ and your local NPM repository but no different package types. While it may work to combine package types, for purposes of naming and organization, as well as common usage, it makes more sense to keep them broken up unless there is a good reason.

Hi James,

worth bearing in mind that you may also want to sub-divide each repo type in other ways, too -- we do it by ALM, and for coarse-grained access control.
