Snapshot#

GET /browse/snapshot/(snapshot_id)/#

HTML view that displays the content of a snapshot from its identifier (see swh.model.git_objects.snapshot_git_object() in our data model module for details about how they are computed).

A snapshot is a set of named branches, which are pointers to objects at any level of the Software Heritage DAG. It represents a full picture of an origin at a given time. Thus, multiple visits of different origins can point to the same snapshot (for instance, when several projects are forks of a common one).

Currently, that endpoint simply performs a redirection to GET /browse/snapshot/(snapshot_id)/directory/ in order to display the root directory associated to the default snapshot branch (usually master).

Parameters:
  • snapshot_id (string) – hexadecimal representation of the snapshot sha1 identifier

Status Codes:

Snapshot directory#

GET /browse/snapshot/(snapshot_id)/directory/#

HTML view that displays the content of a directory reachable from a snapshot.

The features offered by the view are similar to the one for browsing a directory in an origin context (see GET /browse/origin/(origin_url)/directory/[(path)/]).

Parameters:
  • snapshot_id (string) – hexadecimal representation of the snapshot sha1 identifier

Query Parameters:
  • path (string) – optional parameter used to specify the path of a directory reachable from the snapshot root one

  • branch (string) – specify the snapshot branch name from which to retrieve the root directory

  • release (string) – specify the snapshot release name from which to retrieve the root directory

  • revision (string) – specify the snapshot revision, identified by the hexadecimal representation of its sha1_git value, from which to retrieve the root directory

Status Codes:
