peater: the Archlinux's packages eater.
peater (the packages eater) eats [ all | part of ] your installed packages and saves them to a list, or if you want it restores all the packages in a list.
- save all the installed packages to a list;
- save a subset of installed packages to a list;
- restore a list of packages (and optionally execute a script after restore).
To make the script work correctly you must have installed:
Installation & Basic Usage:
To install the script, copy it wherever you want. If you run an Archlinux box you can use the included PKGBUILD.
To save all packages in the system, simply run
$ peater -sa
or if you want specify a list's name
$ peater -sa foo.pkglist
To save a subset of the installed packages, run
$ peater -s foo.pkglist bar baz
and peater will save all your installed packages containing the pattern 'bar' and 'baz' in to the list 'foo.pkglist'.
To restore the packages inside a list, you have to run
$ peater -r foo.pkglist
and peater will restore all the package contained in the list 'foo.pkglist'. If in the directory of 'goo.pkglist', there is a file named 'foo.sh', peater will execute it after restoring packages.
