I would like to generate an image that contains a custom directories
layout for expl:

├── bar1

         └── lib
             ├── config
             └── data

It should contains only those directories an nothing else, is there
anyway to achieve that ? without using ROOTFS_POSTPROCESS_COMMAND.
Should be possible if your image installs only your specific recipes
that populate those directories. Means: no packagegroup-core-boot, no
base-passwd, no.... -> then nothing should bring along other directories.
I tried that but it does pull other packages even if I set in my image:

PACKAGE_INSTALL = "my-layout-recipe"
It looks like you inherit "core-image" instead of just "image". I can
confirm that this work, I have this simple recipe:

# Copyright (C) 2017 Stefano Babic <sbabic@...>
# Released under the MIT license (see COPYING.MIT for the terms)

DESCRIPTION = "Image with user processes"
SECTION = "Application"

inherit image

projects-firmware \

And project firmware has just the layout I want.
