packagecloud.io: package repository hosting as a service
I’ve taken a bit of a break from blogging over the past several months in order to focus on a product I’m building with my friend James that helps to solve a set of problems we’ve both suffered through many times before:
Setting up, managing, securing, and dealing with package repositories that support multiple architectures and linux distributions is painful, time consuming, and error-prone.
We are publicly launching packagecloud.io for the first time today to help ease the pain for hobbyists, devs, and ops people who need to host RPM, DEB, or RubyGem repositories for their personal projects, build systems, and internal infrastructure.
Some of the most exciting features for our initial launch include:
- GPG signing of repositories
- All repositories are served over HTTPS
- Support for multiple Linux distributions in a single repository
- Private repositories
- Install scripts to get your repositories up and running quickly and easily
