The main purpose of this project is helping people to package Sugar for various non-mainstream Linux distributions. If Linux distribution is not Debian/Fedora/Ubuntu based and there is lack of human resources to maintain packages, that project could be valuable.

How it works

The general idea is to collect all distro-independent information in one place to minimize maintenance costs. Process of generating packages looks like that:

  • fetching dependencies from sugar-jbuild (native sugar building system)
  • adding distro-independent content like common package dependencies, various strings, urls etc.
  • using distro-specific templates to generate native packages

Supported distros

Currently supported followed distributions:


Meta packages to install bunch of sugar components

  • sugar-glucose provides strong(=) dependencies to core components
  • sugar-fructose provides soft(>=) dependencies to core activities
  • sugar-honey provides soft(>=) dependencies to non-core activities
