Each package is described in a text file, which eid finds in
Note that local recipes should be added in local/project-name, eid copies the contents of the local folder into recipes/ each time it is called.
The recipe contains informaiton on how to get the sources via a tarball or git checkout. If the package is well behaved, no further information is neccesary as the default function implementations for stages of creating a package is sufficient, look at existing packages to see how things are dealt with. Packages with short recipes are candidates for good starting points for new recipes.
By adding a new file called local/foo, and running:
Should show the new package, along with other packages, installed packages have a * before them.
./eid add foo ./eid rebuild foo
eid will install the package foo, and
$ ./eid rebuild foo will rebuild it
even without changes to the recipie - neccesary if it for instance the recipie
hasn't changed, but is referring to a moving target like a git master.
./eid del foo
Will uninstall the package.
Synchronize with remote repositories, fetching both recipes and logs for binary package caches for the current eid architecture.
