Repod is available on the Python Package Index (PyPi): https://pypi.org/project/repod/
You can install the latest released version of repod by executing
pip install repod
Installing a wheel distributable (e.g. via
pip install) does not create
required directories for system-mode (see repod.conf), nor does it
provide the man pages.
Users requiring system-mode and downstream packagers should therefore use the
Makefile for installation on a system level.
Installing repod automatically installs its dependencies as well.
A few optional dependencies offer different functionality over the defaults.
The repod project can be used from a git clone of the project, with the help of pdm.
git clone https://gitlab.archlinux.org/archlinux/repod/
Afterwards it is possible to make use of existing tooling with
the help of
pdm run (e.g.
pdm run repod-file --help).
