0export - create self-installing bundles for distribution on CD

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/tools/0export.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

It is sometimes useful to bundle a program and its libraries together on a CD (for example) so that it can be used on machines without a network connection, or where the network is very slow. It is also useful for archival purposes, in case the original web-sites supplying required libraries become unavailable. 0export takes the URI of a program and creates a "setup.sh" file; a self- extracting archive containing everything needed to run the program. This file can be executed on a machine without a network connection to install or run the program. Unlike the bundles created by the related zero2bundle program, programs installed using setup.sh are added to the Zero Install cache and are therefore still shared between users, and will get updates over the web where possible.
