As promised, Kerm, here's what would be needed to get Cemetech, Sandpaper, and calcpkg all working with each other.

First, we'd need a script that will produce something like's master.index, perhaps run whenever a file is uploaded. Something like the Python script below would get all the files (with paths). I don't know how you store file info, though, so getting the actual name of an upload might be more difficult.

#!/usr/bin/env python
import os
names = []
filenames = []
archives = "/path/to/the/archives/"
for root, dirs, files in os.walk(archives):
   for file in files:
      if file[0] == ".":
      dirpath = root[root.find(archives) + len(archives):]
      filenames.append(dirpath + "/" + file)
      #Do something to get the name as well

Then, I would just need to to build the cemetech index files using this index, but I can just reuse the code so this wouldnm't take long at all.

After that, I think everything should Just Work- though maybe we'd also need more code to turn the calcpkg output into something Sandpaper can understand?

That's all that's actually needed, but it would also be nice to have a "File Size" listed on the Cemetech archive pages, like the one on archive pages, here's an example. This would just allow the "calcpkg info" command to give more information about Cemetech files.

I think that's everything.
Can't wait to see this working with online file archives Very Happy

The released Sandpaper 0.8 beta actually already works with the archives via globalCALCnet! You can browse through the archives, although sadly I didn't implement downloading files yet.
How did I miss that? I'll have to try it when I get home today!
