[package [package ...]]

Installs artifacts of dependency packages for use during the build of the current package.


  • package: name of package to consider for installation.

You may specify one or more packages, separated by a space; or none. If no packages are named, autobuild will attempt to install all packages listed in the 'installables' section of the configuration file.

Private Packages:

If a package has been marked as requiring GitHub or GitLab credentials environment variables need to be provided with valid personal access tokens:

--config-file filename N/A File that describes what is installed (defaults to $AUTOBUILD_CONFIG_FILE or "autobuild.xml"). Use specified configuration file.
--export-manifest N/A None Print the install manifest to stdout and exit.
--installed-manifest filename N/A The file used to record what is installed. Save record of what is installed to the specified file.

--list-install-urls Lists the archive urls for all installed packages

--list-dirty Lists the names of 'dirty' installed packages

--what-installed file-path path to a file installed by some package Lists the archive responsible for installing the specified file; useful when finding conflicts between packages
--versions Prints each package name and its version value
--copyrights Prints each package name and its copyright value
--local archive path to an archive file Installs the specified archive file in place of the version in the autobuild configuration. This marks the resulting build as 'dirty' but is useful during development. Using this option is equivalent to listing a package name to be installed (so not including the name does not mean that all packages are installed).
