Packit CLI

Packit CLI #

Installation #

There are various ways how to install packit CLI. Pick what suits you the best:

Fedora Linux #

$ sudo dnf install packit

Red Hat Enterprise Linux or CentOS Stream 8 #

On RHEL/CentOS 8 you can install RPM from EPEL repository. On CentOS, some dependencies are in PowerTools repository, so you have to enable it:

$ sudo dnf install dnf-plugins-core epel-release
$ sudo dnf config-manager --set-enabled powertools
$ sudo dnf install packit

Via Fedora COPR #

You can also help us test the latest development snapshot by installing packit built from the main branch in Copr:

$ sudo dnf copr enable packit/packit-dev
$ sudo dnf install packit
$ # OR in case you have packit already installed from the Fedora repositories:
$ sudo dnf upgrade packit

From PyPI #

We publish packit to PyPI and it’s available as packitos project — packit at PyPI is something different.

$ pip install --user packitos

From Source #

… or installing it directly from GitHub:

$ pip install --user git+

In a container #

If none of the above work for you, try running it in a container from our Fedora based image. It contains packit installed from main branch, i.e. the same you’d get by pip installing from Github.

$ podman run -ti --rm -v $PWD:/src:z bash
$ packit
Usage: packit [OPTIONS] COMMAND [ARGS]...

Depending on the command you want to perform you need to mount secrets and configuration files, like in the following examples:

Copr build #

$ podman run -ti --rm -v ~/.config/copr:/root/.config/copr:z -v $PWD:/src:z bash
$ packit build in-copr

Koji build #

$ podman run -ti --rm -v ~/.ssh/:/root/.ssh:z -v $PWD:/src:z bash
