I've been meaning to do this for a long while now, but finally gotten around to it. I've set up an Ubuntu PPA for the respositories I have on github. The aim of this is to simplify sharing things with others.

My target distribution is Ubunty 14.04.1LTS

In order to install any of the packages under Ubuntu, you first add my new PPA, and update and install using apt-get.

ie Add my PPA to your machine:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sparkslabs/packages

Then do an update:

sudo apt-get update

You can the install any of things I've packaged up as follows:

  • Guild: sudo apt-get install guild
  • The arduino libraries for IOToy: sudo apt-get install arduino-iotoy
  • Python IOToy libraries: sudo apt-get install python-iotoy
  • dfu-programmer: sudo apt-get install dfu-programmer
  • The nascent Kamaelia compatibility layer for Guild: sudo apt-get install python-guild-kamaelia
  • Python RFID Tag Reader Module: sudo apt-get install python-rfidtag
  • Waypoint (used the RFID tag reader to enable opt-in tracking round a venue): sudo apt-get install python-waypoint
  • Axon: sudo apt-get install python-axon
  • Kamaelia: sudo apt-get install python-kamaelia

Mainly for my convenience, but will also make install docs for my projects simpler :-)
