OPAM - A package manager for OCaml

OPAM is a source-based package manager for OCaml. It supports multiple simultaneous compiler installations, flexible package constraints, and a Git-friendly development workflow.

OPAM is created and maintained by OCamlPro.

To get started, checkout the Quick Install guide.

Compiling this repo

  • Make sure you have OCaml and GNU make installed.
  • Run ./configure
  • Run make lib-ext as advertised by ./configure if you don't have the dependencies installed and only need the opam binary (not the libs). This will locally take care of all OCaml dependencies for you.
  • Otherwise, make sure to have ocamlfind, ocamlgraph, cmdliner, jsonm, cudf, dose 3.2.2+opam and re >= 1.2.0 installed. Or run opam install opam-lib --deps-only if you already have a working instance. Re-run ./configure once done.
  • Run make
  • Run make install
  • Run make libinstall if needed (this is incompatible with make lib-ext, as the opam library would conflict with installed versions of the dependencies)
