Welcome to the fpm-cookery documentation!

Current version: 0.33.0

fpm-cookery provides an infrastructure to automatically build software based on recipes. It’s heavily inspired and borrows code from the great homebrew and brew2deb projects.


  • Source archive download and caching.
  • Recipes to describe and execute the software build. (e.g. configure, make, make install)
  • Sandboxed builds.
  • Package creation via fpm.
  • Standalone recipe trees/books/you name it. No need to put the recipes into the fpm-cookery source tree.
