Aptly is a swiss army knife for Debian repository management.
Aptly features: ("+" means planned features)
- make mirrors of remote Debian/Ubuntu repositories, limiting by components/architectures
- take snapshots of mirrors at any point in time, fixing state of repository at some moment of time
- publish snapshot as Debian repository, ready to be consumed by apt
- controlled update of one or more packages in snapshot from upstream mirror, tracking dependencies
- merge two or more snapshots into one
- filter repository by search query, pulling dependencies when required
- publish self-made packages as Debian repositories
- REST API for remote access
- mirror repositories "as-is" (without resigning with user's key) (+)
- support for yum repositories (+)
- translations are not supported yet
To install aptly on Debian/Ubuntu, add new repository to /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb http://repo.aptly.info/ squeeze main
And import key that is used to sign the release:
$ apt-key adv --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys E083A3782A194991
After that you can install aptly as any other software package:
$ apt-get update $ apt-get install aptly
Don't worry about squeeze part in repo name: aptly package should work on Debian squeeze+, Ubuntu 10.0+. Package contains aptly binary, man page and bash completion.
If you would like to use nightly builds (unstable), please use following repository:
deb http://repo.aptly.info/ nightly main
Binary executables (depends almost only on libc) are available for download from Bintray.
If you have Go environment set up, you can build aptly from source by running (go 1.3+ required):
go get -u github.com/mattn/gom mkdir -p $GOPATH/src/github.com/smira/aptly git clone https://github.com/smira/aptly $GOPATH/src/github.com/smira/aptly cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/smira/aptly gom -production install gom build -o $GOPATH/bin/aptly
Aptly is using gom to fix external dependencies, so regular
go get github.com/smira/aptly
should work as well, but might fail or produce different result (if external libraries got updated).
If you don't have Go installed (or older version), you can easily install Go using gvm.
