Arch linux package

February 16, 2020 at 7:10am (Edited 2 months ago)
I use EdgeDB on arch linux, there is no official package now. Are there any plans for adding it? I didn't find instructions for building production version, only dev version using pip (it builds and runs successfully on arch) and use docker image currently. What are the differences between dev and production builds?
I understand that project is in very early stage and I could try to help creating edgedb and edgedb-git packages.

We build packages using edgedb-pkg and metapkg. The idea is that we generate distribution-native source package and then build it using the native toolkit for maximum compatibility with the target platform. This also allows us to bundle dependencies selectively (i.e. only when necessary). Adding an arch target to metapkg shouldn't be too hard.
