Cross package maker. DEB/RPM generation or conversion. Derived from jordansissel/fpm.

⌈⌋ branch:  cross package maker



The exe target is just a plain zip SFX, even though it looks like an installer already. (Still suitable for small projects). Windows users however may wish to have proper .msi installers instead.

  • Now this is an obvious target, has been covered in the fpm issues or mailing list already.

  • Use msitools

    • Is the simplest alternative so far.
    • But is still woefully hard to build and distribute. (Vala with GObject introspection make it unsuitable for static builds.)
    • And lastly doesn't actually provide an installer GUI. Generated MSIs are a plain text-based extractor still.


I'm not actually a Windows user; so don't care enough about this. It's still a sensible feature to have for fpm.
