Duffle: The CNAB Installer
Duffle's main utility, now that much of its internal code has migrated to the official cnab-go Golang library, is to demonstrate working proof-of-concepts of additions or modifications to applicable CNAB specifications. Of course, Duffle may still be used to install, manage and author bundles at a low level.
Future conformance updates per the Core and other CNAB specifications are intended to be added in the aforementioned cnab-go library, rather than in Duffle, which will not be updated going forward. Duffle will remain a reference implementation of the CNAB spec as of v1.0.1. If you are interested in using an up-to-date CNAB tool, check out https://cnab.io/community-projects/#tools.
The community has created implementations of the CNAB spec with opinionated takes on authoring bundles. Some even use Duffle's libraries to handle the CNAB implementation. If you want to make your own CNAB tooling, that is a great place to start!

Run the command to set
duffleup on your machine:
$ duffle init ==> The following new directories will be created: /home/janedoe/.duffle /home/janedoe/.duffle/bundles /home/janedoe/.duffle/logs /home/janedoe/.duffle/plugins /home/janedoe/.duffle/claims /home/janedoe/.duffle/credentials ==> The following new files will be created: /home/janedoe/.duffle/repositories.json
Build and install your first bundle (you can find the
examplesdirectory in this repository):

Check that it was built:
$ duffle bundle list NAME VERSION DIGEST helloworld 0.1.1 fae0c3a28bd850f6a9a2631b9abe4f8244c83ee4

$ duffle uninstall helloworld-demo Executing uninstall action... hello world uninstall action Action uninstall complete for helloworld-demo
- To build and install bundles, you need access to a Docker engine - it can be Docker for Mac, Docker for Windows, Docker on Linux, or a remote Docker engine. Duffle uses the Docker engine to build the invocation images, as well as for running actions inside invocation images.
- Duffle has a driver architecture for different ways of executing actions inside invocation images, and more drivers will be available in the future.
