alpine-iso Config Builder

To create an Alpine ISO image with a specific set of packages only a plain text list of packages and a configuration file is needed. Sometimes you wish to have some additional documentation or description about the included packages available and not only the package list. Here comes config-builder into play. config-builder is able to create a package list from a mediawiki page or the Alpine Linux Git repository. Below are two pages that are included in the config-builder script.

config-builder allows you to grab data from any mediawiki instance to build your package list. A requirement for the mediawiki pages is that the package names are placed in a table (class wikitable). Beside that nothing else is needed. You are free to format your page as you like. If you are unsure about the table layout just take a look at one of the two page mentioned above.

More details about the creation of Alpine Linux ISO images can be found at this wiki page.


No installation is needed. Just clone the git repository:

And run the script
