Subject [jira] [Created] (MYNEWT-293) Newt should make it easier to make custom packages
Date Wed, 11 May 2016 21:57:12 GMT
Sterling Hughes created MYNEWT-293:

             Summary: Newt should make it easier to make custom packages
                 Key: MYNEWT-293
             Project: Mynewt
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Newt
    Affects Versions: v0_9_0_rel
            Reporter: Sterling Hughes
            Assignee: Sterling Hughes
             Fix For: v0_9_0_rel

There are a few issues with current newt package creation: 

- It's opaque as to how to create a local package in a project.  

- Need to add two options: 
    - newt pkg new <pkgname>: create a new package in the current directory, with a
basic template
    - newt pkg clone <pkg-location> <pkg-dest>: Clone an existing package into
the currnet directory.

- Currently, there must be an exact match on repository descriptor, or the newt tool will
barf.  This should be smarter -- 
  - If it can't resolve a dependency in the local project, it should look at the current project/workspace,
and try to resolve the package
  - It should issue a warning if it can't find the package.

- Currently and the name of the package directory can not match, and the
will be taken over the pkg directory.  There should be a warning issued if the package directory
does not match the package name.
