0share - peer-to-peer sharing of Zero Install packages

Published by Thomas Leonard

Overview

This is a Zero Install feed. To add this program to your Applications menu, choose Zero Install -> Add New Program from the Applications menu. e.g. on Ubuntu:

Adding with GNOME

If you don't see this menu item, install the zeroinstall-injector package from your distribution's repository, or from 0install.net.

Drag the feed's URL to the dialog box that appears. Other environments may use other systems. For example, if you are a ROX desktop user, drag the link to AddApp instead.

Alternatively, to run it from the command-line:

$ 0launch http://0install.net/2008/interfaces/0share.xml

The 0alias command can be used to create a short-cut to run it again later.

If you don't have the 0launch command, download it from the 0install.net web-site, which also contains documentation about how the Zero Install system works.

Description

Zero Install is a decentralised installation system. Meta-data about each package is published in a "feed" file. Before downloading a package over the internet, 0launch can check to see if any nearby machines have a copy, and get it from them instead if so. This will normally be much faster. The secure hash from the feed is used to check that the software hasn't been modified.
