kiss-bin

A KISS extension for dealing with binary package repositories.

I was initially planning on implementing this inside my fork of the package manager itself, but I didn't because it would wildly complicate the package manager.

There are some caveats that I hope to fix as I work more on this extension

See https://dl.carbslinux.org/pkg for an example binary repository.

Quick Start

You can quickly setup a distribution by doing the following, also see the Caveats section at the end of the file for the rationale behind the linking. This sets a distribution to the current directory.

for bin in ~/.cache/kiss/bin/*; do
    binout=${bin##*/} binname=${bin%\#*} binout=${binname}.${binout#*\#}
    ln -sf "$bin" "$binout"
done

kiss-bin-manifest | sort -rV > manifest

httpd -f -p 8181

Following the previous step, you can do a quick setup in a client by doing the following. The $KISS_BIN variable is explained below.

export KISS_BIN=http://192.168.x.x:8181:personal

# This will fetch the manifest from the server
kiss-bin fetch

Using kiss-bin

kiss-bin can be used to track binary repositories, or downloading singular packages without tracking any. Repositories are defined through the $KISS_BIN variable. It has a comma seperated value of url and names, KISS_BIN=url:name,url2:name2,url3:name3.

  • fetch -- Sync the manifest from repositories
  • get -- Install a package from the given url
  • install -- Install a package from the repository
  • search -- Search for a package.
  • update -- Update binary packages

Usign kiss-bin-manifest

kiss-bin-manifest generates a manifest from the packages on the current directory. If file names are given, it will generate a manifest for those files, which can be used for incremental updates.

Caveats and Future Plans

  • In http file names with # are problematic. Some protocols expect '%23' and some don't. That's why the # must be replaced with .
  • I plan on implementing GnuPG support.
