limba-build - command-line tool for automated builds


limba-build {COMMAND} [OPTIONS ...]


This manual page documents briefly the limba-build command.

limba-build is a tool to automate building Limba packages from source in an isolated
chroot environment.

The tool is also able to create simple Limba package repositories and perform other tasks
related to building Limba packages.


Run the build process. limba-build will look for a lipkg/build.yml, build.yml or
.travis.yml file containing build instructions in that order.

To build in a chroot environment, the --chroot= parameter needs to point to a
directory containing an operating system as created by e.g. debootstrap (8) on
Debian-based systems. If no chroot should be used, --chroot=none must be set instead.

run-shell DIRECTORY
Does exactly as the run command, but instead of running the commands necessary to
build the software, it opens a interactive shell in the build environment.

This feature is very useful for debugging the build environment itself. The pre-build
and post-build commands are run before and after opening the interactive shell, just
as in a regular build.

repo-init DIRECTORY
Initialize empty Limba package repository in a local directory.

Add a Limba package to a local repository.
