Which tools to mange OCaml packages in my system (Linux)?
I use OPAM to manage OCaml packages: http://opam.ocamlpro.com/index.html
To install it:
$ wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ocaml/opam/master/shell/opam_installer.sh $ sh ./opam_installer.sh /usr/local/bin
More options are available here.
opam settings take effect, append this to
eval `opam config env`
Some frequent usages:
opam list # List all available packages opam search QUERY # List packages with QUERY in their name or description opam info PACKAGE # Display information about PACKAGE opam update # Update the packages database opam install PACKAGE # Download, build and install the latest version of PACKAGE
More usages are available here.
Another good tools is GODI: http://godi.camlcity.org/godi/index.html
A tip I find to reinstall OCaml again found after I deleted the
~/.opam directory by accident:
Initialize your opam profile:
Install OCaml (note: NOT by
opam switch 4.00.1
You can check all available versions of OCaml by:
On Ubuntu/Linux Mint, you can install opam from the repository:
$ sudo aptitude install opam
Another option is GODI:
It can be downloaded and installed following the tutorial here: http://godi.camlcity.org/godi/get_godi.html
Sadly, GODI is to be shutdown in September 2013. Check the announcement by Gerd Stolpmann: http://blog.camlcity.org/blog/godi_shutdown.html
