#65 in Command-line interface
Under Development - Working but still early.
binst's goal is to provide a simple and decentralize mechanism to publish and install [rust based] binaries. The command line is repository location agnostic, although we might provide one repository at binst .io at some point. At this point, only support
s3 protocol to publish, and
http/https for install.
- From dev machine, publish with
binst publish -r s3://my_bucket-com/repo(will publish the
- From any machine, install with
binst install my_cool_lib -r https://my_bucket.com/repo(assuming you made your bucket a website).
- Can also install with same s3 protocol
binst install my_cool_lib -r s3://my_bucket-com/repo
- Can also install with same s3 protocol
- One a bin is installed, just do
binst update my_cool_liband it will get updated if a new one was deployed in the stream (main by default)
- Stream are based on the semver
pre, default is
OS Support - For now, supports x64 mac and x64 linux gnu. ARM Mac / Linux coming soon. Windows, pull request welcome.
Binary install on the development and install machines
## On linux curl -O https://binst.io/self/binst/x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu/stable/binst.tar.gz && \ tar -xvf binst.tar.gz && ./binst self && \ echo 'source "$HOME/.binst/env"' >> ~/.bashrc && source "$HOME/.binst/env" ## On mac curl -O https://binst.io/self/binst/x86_64-apple-darwin/stable/binst.tar.gz && \ tar -xvf binst.tar.gz && ./binst self && \ echo '\nsource "$HOME/.binst/env"' >> ~/.zshenv && source "$HOME/.binst/env"
Note on AWS Linux - When using older instances, you must (and should anyway) update openssl to 1.1 or above with
sudo yum install openssl11(per default Rust's requirement).
On the development machine, can use cargo install as well
cargo install binst
Note: You need to have a AWS S3 repository and the credential either as environment variables or as a aws profile
On the development machine, to publish to a repo.
## Publish to S3 # Note: publish the --release, with the Cargo.tml version. binst publish -r s3://my_repo_bucket/repo_root --profile my_aws_profile # Or with the AWS credential env variables set binst publish -r s3://my_repo_bucket/repo_root
On other machines, once binst installed (see below for the binary-only version install)
# Install the latest stable version published (the one in the info.toml) binst install cool_cli -r s3://my_repo_bucket/my_repo # install from a http/https URL (assuming http domain map to the s3 bucket above) binst install cool_cli -r https://my_repo_bucket.com/my_repo # then, you can run the cool_cli (assuming ~/.binst/bin/ has been added to the PATH) cool_cli ....
Note: For now a
binst install ...will reinstall the binary for the latest version. It won't do any semver comparison.
- Not for end users -
binstis not for end-users, but for developers and the technical community.
- Not a package manager - Dumb is the new smart; use real package manager if dumb is not enough.
- No Windows support (yet) - Sorry, I do not have Windows around. Pull request welcome, though.
- No central repository - Decentralized first, but eventually will profile one on binst .io for the popular command-line tools.
- Simple repo layout - There can be only one. Also, only .tar.gz format.
- Few protocols - S3 to publish, https/s3 to install. Git planned.
- repo_base - cool_cli/ - x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu/ - main/ # for main semver, like 0.1.1 - latest.toml # latest - 0.1.1/ - cool_cli.toml # package.version = 0.1.1 - cool_cli.tar.gz - 0.1.0/ - cool_cli.toml # package.version = 0.1.0 - cool_cli.tar.gz - rc/ # when semver has a -..pre.. (take the alpha only). - latest.toml - 0.1.0-rc.1/ - cool_cli.toml # package.version = 0.1.0-rc.1 - cool_cli.tar.gz
- ~/.binst/ - env # sh file to source to set the ~/.binst/bin in the PATH - bin/ # symblink dir. Should be in the PATH crate_name -> ../packages/crate_name/0.1.3/upacked/crate_name - packages/ - crate_name/ - 0.1.3/ - install.toml # (version and repo of the download. Will be user for the future 'binst update' command) - crate_name.tar.gz # (downloaded package) - unpacked/ # unpacked tar.gz containing the executable crate_name
- Tested so far:
- x86_64-apple-darwin (only one tested/supported so far !!!!)
- Plan to test
- Not planned (but pull request welcome)
