Talk:Creating an Alpine package

Under "commit your work", there's a thing to

cd $aportsdir
git pull

This should pull all the changes made by others into you local git repo. When you think you are ready you can add your files to git:

cd $apkbuilddir
git add APKBUILD (include any other files needed for the build; $pkgname.install...)
git commit


What is the difference between $aportsdir and $apkbuilddir?

Is apkbuilddir $aportsdir/$pkgname ? Or can $apkbuilddir be ~/work/foo/packagename

Install section

The wiki mention:

APKBUILD should have the install variable defined and the scripts should also be added to the source variable

but when doing this abuild warn:

>>> WARNING: <aport>: You should not have $install in source

so I guess this should be remove, correct me if I'm wrong

Test your package

what i was missing after building, was how to test

#after abuild -r
apk add /home/$USER/packages/main/$ARCH/$PACKAGE_NAME.apk
