Announcing Funtoo "Boxer"!

Recommended Posts

  • Funtoo Linux BDFL

I'm happy to announce the release of Funtoo Boxer, the official tool for creating Funtoo Linux containers and VM images.

The official "home" of Funtoo Boxer is on GitHub, with documentation viewable there:


The purpose of Boxer is to have an officially-maintained tool for creating container and VM images for Funtoo, so that our users don't need to search the internet for scripts to build containers and VM images, and so we can easily maintain and document these processes so they always work optimally.

In the 1.0.3 release, we currently support the creation of Docker and Singularity container images, with more container and VM formats to be added in future releases.

To install boxer, you can "emerge boxer" on Funtoo systems. On non-Funtoo systems, a "pip install funtoo-boxer" should install it. Additionally, it is possible to run Funtoo Boxer directly from a cloned git repository -- please see the README.rst for more details on this.

Enjoy Boxer -- and we welcome GitHub pull requests for this new and exciting tool!
