Precompiled software, built on demand.


curl -LGfs \
    -d recipe=RECIPE \
    -d target=TARGET \
    -d version=VERSION \
    -d prefix=PREFIX \
    -o output.tgz

version and prefix are optional. version will default to whatever default version is specified in the recipe, and prefix defaults to /usr/local.

Want to get a precompiled ruby-2.3.0 for ubuntu:14.04, to be installed into /usr/local?

curl -LGfs -d recipe=ruby -d target=ubuntu:14.04 -d version=2.3.0 -d prefix=/usr/local | tar xzf - -C /usr/local

/usr/local/bin/ruby -v
#=> ruby 2.3.1p112 (2016-04-26 revision 54768) [x86_64-linux]

/usr/local/bin/gem -v
#=> 2.5.1


Display build log

The build log is streamed in the first response (which includes a Location header to redirect to the resulting binary), so if you want to see it, just make a first request without the follow redirect option, and then to the same one with the -L flag:

params="-d recipe=ruby -d target=ubuntu:14.04 -d version=2.3.0 -d prefix=/usr/local"
curl -fG $params && curl -fGL $params -o result.tgz
