Shell Script

The easiest way to install makedeb is via the official installation script. It can be ran like so:

bash -ci "$(wget -qO - '')"

Noninteractive usage

By default the script runs interactively, and asks the user which release they’d like to install.

If you’d like to run the script in a noninteractive environment, such as in a CI or deployment script, simply omit the -i argument to bash, and pass in the MAKEDEB_RELEASE environment variable, set to a value of makedeb, makedeb-beta, or makedeb-alpha:

# Set the makedeb release you want.
export MAKEDEB_RELEASE='makedeb'

# Run the install script. Note that it's `bash -c` and not `bash -ci` now.
bash -c "$(wget -qO - '')"
