Over the last summer of 2015, I’ve been watching anime as an enjoyable entertainment. To watch anime, it forces me to watch video by streaming “on browser”. I found it is very annoying since video player provided by video streaming services is very awful.
Recently, I created nanime. I named it “nanime” because it currently only serves anime links from nanime.yt and since there are no other programs using it. This program will fetch videos of each anime episodes, provided the anime URL from nanime.yt is given.
In this article, I’ll cover and share how I…
- Created the RPM SPEC file
- Built the package in COPR
- Found mistakes
I read about rpm packaging in Fedora Packaging Guidelines. It’s a good guide, though I end up reading rpm-packaging-guide since it has PDF version. The reason is only because I have my phone everywhere so that I can easily read PDF without opening my browser.
Since nanime is implemented with bash, I can easily implement the SPEC file. Anyway, it’s a very simple application at the first place.
First, I create the source package from SPEC file
rpmbuild -bs ~/rpmbuild/SPECS/nanime.spec
And then, I create the binary package
rpmbuild -bb ~/rpmbuild/SPECS/nanime.spec
Actually, I can also create both of them simultaneously
rpmbuild -ba ~/rpmbuild/SPECS/nanime.spec
Lastly, I can build my package in COPR service
copr-cli build nanime ~/rpmbuild/SRPMS/nanime-0.1-1.fc31.src.rpm
I didn’t test my code thoroughly before building the project in COPR causing a very hurtful slap on my face.
Even though adding GPG sign to a package is not a must, It’s a good thing to do and nothing to lose anyway. rpm-packaging-guide also gives a good case where Signed-package is very useful.
