rakudo-install documentation

SYNOPSIS

Install Rakudo as a system package.

Description

This is simple installer of Rakudo Perl6.

Platforms supported:

  • CentOS
  • Ubuntu
  • Debian
  • Fedora
  • Alpine
  • Archlinux ( limited support )

note: for archlinux zef will not be installed because the installer uses a user binary repo without zef package.

Install

  $ sparrow plg install rakudo-install

Usage

List available distributions

  $ sparrow plg run rakudo-install --param search=ubuntu

Install Rakudo with default distribution

Be aware that defaults might point to pretty old versions:

  $ sparrow plg run rakudo-install

Set distro's url explicitly

This is preferable method:

  $ sparrow plg run rakudo-install \
  --param url=https://github.com/nxadm/rakudo-pkg/releases/download/v2017.11/rakudo-pkg-Debian8.9_2017.11-01_amd64.deb

Sparrowdo usage

You can use Sparrowdo to install Rakudo:

  $ cat sparrowfile

  task-run 'install Rakudo', 'rakudo-install', %(
    url =>  'https://github.com/nxadm/rakudo-pkg/releases/download/v2017.11/rakudo-pkg-Debian8.9_2017.11-01_amd64.deb'
  );
