Projects / Nixstaller


With 'nixstaller' you can easily make installers for Unix-like systems. Some of the project goals: support for many different platforms, support for different (optional) frontends used by the installer (currently FLTK, ncurses, GTK 2, and Qt are planned), ease of use for the install creator and the end user, different ways of installing (extract files to a location, compile software on the user's system, and maybe even integration for the package manager running on the user's system). Nixstaller can be fully translated and is programmed in C++ and sh.
