holo-build - cross-distribution system package compiler
Holo relies on system packages to deploy configuration files and install applications. Distributions offer tooling to build such packages, but most of the time, these tools impose an unnecessary overhead when the goal is just to package up a few static files and list some dependencies. holo-build provides a simple, distribution-independent package description language and generates a system package from such a description. Supported package formats include dpkg, pacman and RPM.
