Can I make `build` skip the cloning from Github step?


I copied my Julia packages from a computer to another computer. The computer I copied it to doesn’t have internet access. But I need to re-build some packages. When I run ] build PkgName it fails with

ERROR: failed to clone from, error: GitError(Code:ERROR, Class:Net, curl error: Could not resolve host:

Is there a way to skip the cloning from Github step?


I’m not sure whether there’s an official way to do this. As an ugly workaround you could perhaps try

using Pkg

and see whether that helps.


No cigar.
