Spack Spack Tutorial

Read the Docs

Spack is a multi-platform package manager that builds and installs multiple versions and configurations of software. It works on Linux, macOS, and many supercomputers. Spack is non-destructive: installing a new version of a package does not break existing installations, so many configurations of the same package can coexist.

This repository houses Spack's hands-on tutorial, which is a subset of Spack's full documentation (or you can run spack help or spack help --all).

This tutorial covers basic to advanced usage, packaging, developer features, and large HPC deployments. You can do all of the exercises on your own laptop using a Docker container. Feel free to use these materials to teach users at your organization about Spack.

Updating the tutorial

  1. Create a new branch named for the event/milestone that corresponds to the new version you want to create.
  2. Upload screen shot of first slide (244px wide, .png) to images directory following existing file-naming convention.
  3. Upload PDF of slide deck to slides directory following existing file-naming convention.
  4. Update index.rst with event name and date; full citation; and file paths for image and PDF.
  5. Update this README (lines 3 and 7) with link to new version's URL.
  6. Build docs locally.
  7. Push changes to GitHub and active new tag/version on Read the Docs.
  8. Build new version on Read the Docs.
