Rex Build Status

With (R)?ex you can manage all your boxes from a central point through the complete process of configuration management and software deployment.

Getting started

We have a Getting started guide on the website that should help you with the first steps.


There are several methods to install (R)?ex: use your distro's package manager, download it from CPAN or build it from source. Check out the Get Rex page on the website for the different options, and choose the one that fits you best.

Build from source

To build (R)?ex from source, you need to install Dist::Zilla:

cpanm Dist::Zilla

Dist::Zilla provides the dzil command, which you can use to install (R)?ex dependencies:

dzil authordeps --missing | cpanm
dzil listdeps --missing | cpanm

Then to install (R)?ex:

dzil install

Or to build a .tar.gz release file:

dzil build
