Out of boredom, while testing stuff on my local aports tree, I wrote a shell script to automate package builds , which is just a simple 'for' loop that does the actual job.

Basically so I wouldn't have to type the commands manually each time I wanted to build a package from my tree. Currently it's on experimental phase and shouldn't be used on production.

These lines below this text are the contents of the script , which kind of self-explanates itself. Currently only tested on the 'main' directory of the tree, mostly because there are barely any build scripts on the other directories.

'#!/bin/sh for package in $(find . -type d | grep -v pkg | grep -v src); do cd $package abuild -r cd $OLDPWD done ' * [2021-09-09] That snippet is no longer used and was therefore discontinued, after I wrote a saner approach, combined with makefiles to achieve automation
