This module implements the basics for Linux distribution ("distro") detection and the OS's native package manager. Its primary purpose is to produce output for Nimble packages, like:

To complete the installation, run:

sudo apt-get install libblas-dev
sudo apt-get install libvoodoo

The above output could be the result of a code snippet like:

if detectOs(Ubuntu):
  foreignDep "lbiblas-dev"
  foreignDep "libvoodoo"

See packaging for hints on distributing Nim using OS packages.

proc echoForeignDeps() {....raises: [], tags: [].}
Writes the list of registered foreign deps to stdout.   Source   Edit
proc foreignCmd(cmd: string; requiresSudo = false) {....raises: [], tags: [].}
Registers a foreign command to the internal list of commands that can be queried later.   Source   Edit
proc foreignDep(foreignPackageName: string) {.
    ...raises: [Exception, IOError, OSError],
    tags: [ExecIOEffect, ReadIOEffect, RootEffect, ReadEnvEffect].}
Registers foreignPackageName to the internal list of foreign deps. It is your job to ensure that the package name is correct.   Source   Edit
proc foreignDepInstallCmd(foreignPackageName: string): (string, bool) {.
    ...raises: [Exception, IOError, OSError],
    tags: [ExecIOEffect, ReadIOEffect, RootEffect, ReadEnvEffect].}
Returns the distro's native command to install foreignPackageName and whether it requires root/admin rights.   Source   Edit


template detectOs(d: untyped): bool
Distro/OS detection. For convenience, the required Distribution. qualifier is added to the enum value.   Source   Edit
