Just Install Registry


This repository contains the just-install "registry": the list of packages available for installation through just-install.

Submitting new entries

Fork this repository, make your changes to just-install.json, then submit a pull request.

Guidelines to follow:

  • Read this (rough) description of the registry file
  • Registry entries are listed in alphabetical order, make sure yours fits with this scheme.
  • Prefer unversioned entries: if a software provides an URL to always get the latest installer try to use that.
  • When an installer combines both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of an application, only add the required x86 entry. That is: add both x86 and x86_64 URLs only when they actually differ.
  • For development libraries: prefer ones compiled with Visual Studio since it's the native toolchain on Windows.

:warning: Please also consider adding an update rule for your new entry in the just-install updater so that your entry can be automatically updated whenever a new version of your application is released.

How to test changes locally

  • Make sure you have the latest version of just-install on your system.
  • Run just-install update to fetch the latest version of the registry file.
  • The registry is saved at %TEMP%\just-install\just-install-v4.json
  • Make your changes to said file:
    • If you have to update an entry, just change it.
    • If you have to add a new entry, start with a similar one already in the file by copying and pasting it.
  • Test your changes locally by running just-install <entry name>.
  • Now copy the file over just-install.json in your Git repository and submit a PR.
