Overview about BinDeps2?


#1

What is the current status of BinDeps2 and how to get an overview about available builders? I remember some Pkg3 discussions about bringing in the bin dependencies into Pkg3 manifests(?), but i don’t see updates on that also.


#2

Have you watched the JuliaCon talk?


#3

Obviously i didn’t. Nothing as written documentation?


#4

#5

Let’s say, i read this already and it doesn’t answer my question about how to find

… and the Readme.md with 6 months old isn’t really convincing …


#6

Sorry, that’s all I’ve got for you.


#7

I see. (i’ll run the video).

Can you explain what you mean by “available builders”? Do you mean what kinds of platforms BinaryBuilder can target (you can get this through BinaryBuilder.supported_platforms(), see below) or what kinds of platforms BinaryBuilder runs on? (Currently Linux x86_64, and MacOS, although Linux is much better supported)

Examples of build_tarballs.jl like https://github.com/staticfloat/PixmanBuilder.

Oh, I see what you mean. We’re planning on collecting them here: https://github.com/JuliaPackaging/Yggdrasil
