LURE (Linux User REpository)
LURE is a distro-agnostic build system for Linux, similar to the AUR. It is currently in beta. Most major bugs have been fixed, and most major features have been added. LURE is ready for general use, but may still break or change occasionally.
LURE is written in pure Go and has zero dependencies after building. The only things LURE requires are a command for privilege elevation such as
doas, etc. as well as a supported package manager. Currently, LURE supports
zypper. If a supported package manager exists on your system, it will be detected and used automatically.
The LURE install script will automatically download and install the appropriate LURE package on your system. To use it, simply run the following command:
curl -fsSL lure.elara.ws/install | bash
IMPORTANT: This method is not recommended as it executes any code that is stored at that URL. In order to make sure nothing malicious is going to occur, download the script and inspect it before running.
Distro packages and binary archives are provided at the latest Gitea release: https://gitea.elara.ws/Elara6331/lure/releases/latest
LURE is also available on the AUR as linux-user-repository-bin
Building from source
To build LURE from source, you'll need Go 1.18 or newer. Once Go is installed, clone this repo and run:
sudo make install
LURE was created because packaging software for multiple Linux distros can be difficult and error-prone, and installing those packages can be a nightmare for users unless they're available in their distro's official repositories. It automates the process of building and installing unofficial packages.
The documentation for LURE is in the docs directory in this repo.
LURE's repos are git repositories that contain a directory for each package, with a
lure.sh file inside. The
lure.sh file tells LURE how to build the package and information about it.
lure.sh scripts are similar to the AUR's PKGBUILD scripts.
Thanks to the following projects for making LURE possible:
