This library provides a high level package-manager. It's core library of dnf, PackageKit and rpm-ostree. It's replacement for deprecated hawkey library which it contains inside and uses librepo under the hood.
Building for Fedora
To install build requirements, run following command:
dnf install check-devel cmake cppunit-devel gcc gcc-c++ glib2-devel gpgme-devel gtk-doc json-c-devel libmodulemd-devel librepo-devel libsolv-devel libsolv-tools make python2-devel python3-devel python2-sphinx python3-sphinx python2-breathe python3-breathe rpm-devel sqlite-devel swig libsmartcols-devel
From the checkout dir:
mkdir build cd build/ cmake .. -DPYTHON_DESIRED=3 make
Building the documentation, from the build/ directory::
tito build --rpm --test
All unit tests should pass after the build finishes:
cd build make test
There are two parts of unit tests: unit tests in C and unit tests in Python. To run the C part of the tests manually, from hawkey checkout::
To manually execute the Python tests, from libdnf git checkout directory::
PYTHONPATH=`readlink -f ./build/src/python/` python3 -m unittest discover -bt python/hawkey/tests/ -s python/hawkey/tests/tests/
The PYTHONPATH is unfortunately needed as the Python test suite needs to know where to import the built hawkey modules.
Here's the most direct way to get your work merged into the project.
Fork the project
Clone down your fork
Implement your feature or bug fix and commit changes
If the change fixes a bug at Red Hat bugzilla, or if it is important to the end user, add the following block to the commit message:
= changelog = msg: message to be included in the changelog type: one of: bugfix/enhancement/security (this field is required when message is present) resolves: URLs to bugs or issues resolved by this commit (can be specified multiple times) related: URLs to any related bugs or issues (can be specified multiple times)
= changelog = msg: Do not close the database if it wasn't opened type: bugfix resolves: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1761976
For your convenience, you can also use git commit template by running the following command in the top-level directory of this project:
git config commit.template ./.git-commit-template
In a separate commit, add your name and email under
Libdnf CONTRIBUTORSsection in the authors file as a reward for your generosity
Push the branch to your fork
Send a pull request for your branch
Please do not create pull requests with translation (.po) file improvements. Fix the translation on
Fedora Weblate <https://translate.fedoraproject.org/projects/dnf/>_ instead.

Information internal to the hawkey development is maintained on a github wiki.
