  • Project mention: Thoughts, learnings and regrets after three years on Home Assistant | | 2024-02-12

    I have HACS[0] installed in my Docker image, I use it for exactly one integration and the initial setup seemed a little dodgy but it's been pain-free for a couple of years now.


  • spack

    A flexible package manager that supports multiple versions, configurations, platforms, and compilers.

  • Project mention: Autodafe: "freeing your freeing your project from the clammy grip of autotools." | | 2024-04-06

    > Are we talking about the same autotools?

    Yes. Instead of figuring out how to do something particular with every single software package, I can do a --with-foo or --without-bar or --prefix=/opt/baz-1.2.3, and be fairly confident that it will work the way I want.

    Certainly with package managers or (FreeBSD) Ports a lot is taken care of behind the scenes, but the above would also help the package/port maintainers as well. Lately I've been using Spack for special-needs compiles, but maintainer ease also helps there, but there are still cases one a 'fully manual' compile is still done.

    > Suffice it to say, I prefer to work with handwritten makefiles.

    Having everyone 'roll their own' system would probably be worse, because any "mysteriously failure" then has to be debugged specially for each project.

    Have you tried Spack?

  • conan-center-index

    Recipes for the ConanCenter repository

  • Project mention: The xz attack shell script | | 2024-04-02

    Conan is a package manager for C/C++. See:

    The way it works is that you can provide "recipes", which are Python scripts, that automate the process of collecting source code (usually from a remote Git repository, or a remote source tarball), patching it, making its dependencies and transitive dependencies available, building for specific platform and architecture (via any number of build systems), then packaging up and serving binaries. There's a lot of complexity involved.

    Here are the two recipes I mentioned:


    OpenSSL v3:

    Now, for the sake of this thread I want to highlight three things here:

    - Conan recipes are usually made by people unaffiliated with the libraries they're packaging;

    - The recipes are fully Turing-complete, do a lot of work, have their own bugs - therefore they should really be treated as software comonents themselves, for the purpose of OSS clearing/supply chain verification, except as far as I know, nobody does it;

    - The recipes can, and do, patch source code and build scripts. There's supporting infrastruture for this built into Conan, and of course one can also do it by brute-force search and replace. See e.g. ZLib recipe that does it both at the same time: -- `_patch_sources` does both direct search-and-replace in source files, and applies the patches from

    Now, good luck keeping track of what's going on there.

  • scoop-directory

  • Project mention: What is going on with FileZilla? | /r/sysadmin | 2023-06-20

    Scoop search works pretty well for me. Or if I know what program I want, I do a scoop search, or look in the directory (generally by-apps).
