To build a package, abuild is used. Besides the package building functionality, options for other package maintainance tasks are also provided.

If you just want to build a package from an APKBUILD file, only two command are needed.

First cd into the package directory (the directory with the APKBUILD file). Then run:

abuild checksum && abuild -r

To use the command above, you have to be in the abuild group. Also, if you haven't already, you will need to setup your abuild environment.

Below all options and commands for abuild are listed.

abuild [options] [-P REPODEST] [-s SRCDEST] [-D DESCRIPTION] [cmd] ...

abuild options

  • -A Print CARCH and exit
  • -c Enable colored output
  • -d Disable dependency checking
  • -D Set APKINDEX description (default: $repo $(git describe))
  • -f Force specified cmd (skip checks: apk up to date, arch, libc)
  • -F Force run as root
  • -h Show this help
  • -i Install PKG after successful build
  • -k Keep built packages, even if APKBUILD or sources are newer
  • -K Keep buildtime temp dirs and files (srcdir/pkgdir/deps)
  • -m Disable colors (monochrome)
  • -P Set REPODEST as the repository location for created packages
  • -q Quiet
  • -r Install missing dependencies from system repository (using sudo)
  • -s Set source package destination directory
  • -u Recursively build and upgrade all dependencies (using sudo)
  • -v Verbose: show every command as it is run (very noisy)
